“We loved it and we will be back”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2011

Best time was had by all we hired only the downstairs of The Lodge. Could not ask for more was a winter's Friday night when we arrived but this did not bother us as we had wood already for us to stoke up the fire. The spa and sauna just topped of the night and I would have loved a game of pool just did not get around to it, did however set up the pool table for a game of pool and everything was in tip top shape all the balls and cues.
I am unsure what the first reviewer is used to obviously staying in a five start at the ritz.
We will definately be back thanks for making our stay at The Lodge one to remember.

Stayed here in June with wife and three kids. Our host made all the necessary arrangements for after hour check-in and left us a nice bottle of bubbly too.

We loved the log fireplace and sitting around it in the cold winter mornings and nights. The warm wood finish in the cabin also created a warm ambiance.

Kids loved the nature. Walking about in the surrounding areas in the morning and evenings, we saw many birds and a few wild kangaroos. One kangaroo even paid us a surprise visit, outside out kitchen window in the morning.

Will return in the future.

This property is advertised as luxiourous it most definately is not! It is old and not very well maintained. The plumbing is not sufficient to service the 18 people it says it sleeps. The furniture is more suited to a backpackers - very old and in need of repair. The bedrooms are more like dorms. The advertised spa and sauna are not in particularly good working order and does not make you inclined to use them as they are in a room which is bascially a shed, with some very dogdy artwork. The outside of the property is unkept and uncared for, with broken playground equipment and old and dirty outside furniture. The balconies are filthy and again filled with broken furniture. OK if you want a wild party or a student weekend but not a great option for the family. Beware of wildlife, possum in the sauna, bats in the dinning room and maggots in the laundry!! You have been warned.
