Stayed with three girlfriends on midweek deal with dinner room breakfast admission to tulip festival and a bunch if tulips. All for $175 a couple. Lovely fresh food, friendly helpful staff. Clean basic rooms and a lovely setting. Highly recommend it

The website shows beautifully furnished and good size rooms and you would have expected the en-suite to be a good size also, BUT alas NO. If I had stood in the doorway I could have washed my hands...

I stayed here for a corporate strategy offsite. The remote location was ideal for our purpose of singularly focusing on our business planning as there are no distractions. There was another corporate group staying here as well, but we were the only groups at the property, so it was incredibly quiet. The staff is attentive and quite helpful as they... More

The first time I stayed here was for a birthday getaway with my partner and a group of friends. We arrived at dusk, and we were greeted by the magical sounds of nature, and instantly bathed in the country serenity.The hotel staff were friendly and helpful, and the rooms were adorable and very clean. The venue is a perfect combination... More

My wife & I recently booked a room for the night, using a 'Scoopon-Voucher' to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary. Imagine our surprise when we arrived to discover not only were we the only guests in this huge 10 acre resort, but as a bonus had been offered a complimentary upgrade to a family-size fully self-contained cottage! The staff could... More

The hotel were very generous to upgrade us from a room to the Cottage which is about 150 mts from the main buildings. The cottage is quite a big cottage which is actually more suited for a family or two couples. We enjoyed it though. It has everything you would need (except for a DVD library- so take your own...
