“A truly delightful place to stay.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2010

I stayed in one of the executive spa suites and what a delightul, character filled suite it was.
The king bed was so very comfortable and the room was large and very nicely furnished.
The complex/grounds are beautiful and well cared for...
It is close to Newcastle and well placed to travel into Sydney.
I am looking forward to my next stay in this beautiful accomodation....
