The room was large and well appointed with a spa on the balcony, but there were no robes or slippers,the bathroom was lovely but the smell of drains hit you as you opened the door,the wardrobe was not long enough to hang a normal length dress without creasing the bottom,there were a lot of large flys in the room and...

The suite was beautiful and the views were stunning. This lodge did not disappoint. I was most impressed with the service. All the staff were AMAZING and went above and beyond. The owner even personally introduced himself and gave us a complimentary glass of champagne with breakfast, as we were on our honeymoon. I'd definitely return!

Located on the hill a few kms from Hanmer. One night stay with massage, hot pool passes, dinner and breakfast deal. Massage great, meals excellent, staff very attentive. Room was huge, upgraded to 80sqm! Decor a little dated and music a little too elevator like, but excellent stay overall. Totally relaxing.

We stayed at the Lodge to celebrate a wedding anniversary and end of holidays. Our first time and easy to find and very close to Hanmer township. The lodge is very private, very nice and quiet. Staff friendly and the meals were first class. The breakfast was superb and the late check out was great to enable us to go... More

We really enjoyed our 2 night stay at the Lodge at the end of Dec 2015. Room was lovely and very comfortable. Food was excellent. Staff were extremely accommodating to every request. Had a "For the Boys" spa treatment and it was great value for money and really enjoyable. Certainly highly recommend a stay here.

I personally found this hotel a tad over-the-top but that's just me. This hotel is beautifully situation high above the Emu Valley. The rooms are quite simply *huge* with an enormous bathroom complete with jacuzzi tub. Our room had a gas fireplace and a balcony with a view of the valley. Beautiful, really beautiful. The restaurant was lovely and served... More

We do not travel alot, but know what we should expect when we spend the money to book into a 5 star hotel. Due to our travel arrangements we could only stay for the day which staff seemed to look at us as if we were the only customers that had ever made such a weird request, awkward from the... More

We are obviously sorry that your reviewer thought their stay had been a waste of money. Unfortunately we had been very full with a conference group the night before and as they wanted to check in at 9am we had only one room with an outdoor hot tub available. Staff accommodated these guests and their special requests to our best... More

We were told at time of booking that restaurant closed for maintenance in evening and we thought ok well we will just eat in town. Checked in at 5.30pm. 1 member of staff on site. Our room was long way from reception. We had to get our own bags so we borrowed the luggage trolley which sat outside our room... More

Unfortunately it was necessary to close the Lodge to undertake the repairs necessary to keep our facility looking good after 7 years. The guests were advised that as this was a quiet week in the lead up to the very busy Christmas New year period there would only be minimal services available and as they wanted that night only they...
