I am at odds with most of the reviewers but it depends on what type of place and weekend you are after I guess.
Paying $160 for the night I expected a little more of the "suite" which we was advertised - in reality it was a smaller than average room which was very outdated in terms of decor. Even the iron had seen better days as it was so caked that we couldn't use it.
There is a limited feel of privacy as you could hear all noises from the bedrooms on either side. Also Monica tried to organise breakfast so that all the guests could eat together. I understand this makes it a bit easier for cooking but I didn't really want to get up for an 8:30 breakfast on a Sunday on a weekend away... That said - we compromised with a 9:00 start and the other guests were lovely.
The cheese and champagne on arrival and the port and chocolates before bed, as advertised on the web and in the brochure in the room, were nowhere to be seen which was a disappointment.
If you stay here you must like dogs - we do so that wasn't a problem and the dogs were so well trained that they wouldn't come into the rooms or kitchen. Very cute.
