Today, passing by, I introduced myself to someone outside and asked for the owner. Dressed and presented in a worse state than someone living off the streets I received a rude and gruff " i'm the owner, i'm busy"..on a request if he had a minute to spare.(my intention was to enquire if the place was open ( it didn't...

After working at this Resort in 2000 ( for only about 4 mths) I am really saddened to see the place so in need of repair and the gardens full of weeds! The rooms and hallways were smelly and dirty and cobwebs in the rooms. Plus crockery didn't "gel" ..... slept 3, yet had 1cup, 2 tsps, 2 knives &... More

The place was great in the 80's. However thats probably the last time it was updated. Or cleaned for that matter. Mattresses smelled, carpets filthy, room dirty and damp. Gardens not maintained yet you pay 2014 prices to stay there. Would be better off camping ...

My husband and I stayed here and what an experience we had. This place isn't a resort, it's dirty, the room was falling apart, the back door didn't lock. However that wasn't the worst part at all. When we had dinner, we waited one and a half hours for our main. The poor ladies were running around trying to keep... More

My wife and I stayed here (well, attempted too) following the Avon Valley Food and Wine Festival. I will start with the positives: Friendly staff. Unfortunately that was pretty much the only positive to this hotel. Upon entry to the main lobby it was absolutely freezing! Wanting some warmth when we got to our it was not a very pleasant...

I got to see inside 3 different rooms and all were different. some had new... More

My partner and I had a lovely stay here. This is a very old establishment, with lots of lovely history. It is nice that all the old original buildings are still here. Sure, it needs some work, but lots of places need work, and they don't do anything about it. You can tell that they are doing something about it.... More

Where do we start? Booked in for Valentines Dinner and overnight stay. The room was filthy dirty including toilet paper still in the lavatory. Spiders webs everywhere and the carpet was disgustingly filthy. The dinner was a disaster. The highly inexperienced staff plated up entrees etc., hours before the meals. The flies were having a field day. We waited nearly... More
