This resort is obviously in a very special location in a wonderful part of the world. It was refurbished in recent years but the rooms need work again. We stayed in an Arkoona room. The bathrooms are very dated and don't feel clean with old grout and scratched tiles. The bed we found quite uncomfortable. Everything else was OK, but it doesn't add up to value for money given high rates especially when you pre book. Stand by rates for our first night were 25% less than we paid because we pre booked. The design of the accommodation is unfortunate and mean you need to keep curtaining closed most of the time to have any privacy. This means you can't take advantage of the bush view and can't get maximum ventilation with windows open as the walkway is straight outside the room.
We ate in both the pub and the restaurant and found both satisfactory with friendly service. Prices were fair except for beer.
Do yourself a favour and drive to Blinman for lunch at the pub. Great drive, excellent cheap food and cold beer - perfect.
The sunset from Stokes lookout is amazing and only a ten minute drive.
