Celebrated a friend's wedding here a couple of weeks ago - had the most fantastic weekend! It is such a beautiful spot. Could not fault Dom and his team - the food was delicious, the service great, and facilites perfect. Well done, and thank-you Team Furneaux!
It's a great place for a wedding, amzing photo opportunities and so nice that the guests can all stay in the same place. Lots of things to do - walks, swimming, kayaking, board games if it rains (it did for a little bit!).... I also like it that guests have a choice of accommodation. There are budget options, The Croft and Possum's Nest, Chalets (where I stayed with 4/5 others - clean, cosy and perfectly comfortable), through to the more upmarket and private suites.
It is a shame there have been some poor reviews written here - I really hope they do not put you off coming to stay in this beautiful place. I recommend that you take a chance and book your stay here. Come and see for yourself!
