“Secluded, luxurious accommodation, with unusual decor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2010

This is a pretty unusual place, very expensively fitted out with strangely dark and dated decor. Peaceful location. One suspects that the original intention - perhaps a place to tempt well-heeled Melbourne types with partners (or secretaries?) for a couple of days relaxation has faded somewhat. The talk of massage etc in the publicity was nowhere to be seen - not that we wanted it. The breakfast - for which ingredients were provided - was DIY, making the price per night steep in our view.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2006

We stayed here for one night in November and it was lovely. We stayed in one of the loft rooms, and the one tiny thing I'd say is that if you're tall you need to be careful! The owners were really helpful and the room had everything you needed plus a few really nice touches like really good tea, and a spa bath (which was much needed after spending an hour in the dark on a freezing cold beach watching the penguins!!!!) The weather was not good while we were there which meant we didn't use the beautiful deck area but this would be fantastic on a summers evening.
