We recently spent our wedding anniversary and New Years Eve in a king suite. As a person confined to a wheelchair, I can recommend the wheelchair accessible suite which we previously stayed in. This time we had access to two rooms, the second being an adjoining standard room that had a bathroom with wheelchair access. I would only book a suite as the standard room only has a bed, no where really to sit, and besides the suites are fantastic! Rae's restaurant has great food, although it's disappointing that Accor member's can't use their Advantage Plus card for breakfast or on weekends. The cellar door is well worth dropping in to.

Lovely location in the heart of the countryside. Every room has a beautiful balcony to sit out on, & enjoy fantastic views. Lovely ultra modern rooms, with all you need. The superior rooms with rond spa bath & glass walled bathrooms are particularly nice. Good fine-dining restaurant (2 courses 55AUD). The only downside is that the breakfasts are overpriced at 30AUD, unless you get an inclusive deal. But you can always buy your own & eat it on the balcony!
Overall highly recommended.
