We stayed at Castlereagh for two nights in March and it was the most magical experience of our honeymoon. The service was fantastic, the food delicious and the gardens beautiful. It really was like stepping back in time: high tea on the verrandah, pre-dinner drinks in one of the two sitting rooms, four course meals with excellent argentinian wine and then port. Our room, Tate, had a four poster bed and wonderful views over the garden and down to the lake. You even get a great view from the claw foot bath! The stay includes a fascinating tour of a local tea factory and on the way back we got the chance to visit both Norwood (huge pool) and Summerville (floor to ceiling picture windows looking out over the terraced garden over the lake) which are equally gorgeous bungalows, although they are all different. We would love to go back.
