“Relax and unwind”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

We had a nice relaxing time. A perfect destination anytime of the year. It was nice just to be able to wake up, have breakfast and go straight for a horse ride. My daughter and I went for horseride and my 2 year old son even had a go on the horse. My husband enjoyed being able to play golf amd it being on our door step. Also The Oaks Ranch it is so close to many local attractions, like Mogo Shops, Mogo Zoo ( a wonderful zoo), batemans bay and there is so much more to discover, we ran out of time. Thank you the family enjoyed their stay and I also came home relaxed. xx

This place has such potential! The views and surroundings are absolutely amazing however I found the buildings lacked in character on the inside. I felt very ripped off when I walked into our room. It felt like a really out of date motel room, almost like an old backpackers hostel! It was so run down and bland. The staff are absolutely wonderful but I'm afraid there's no more positives! The toiletries supplied are so bad in quality & the heater in the room didn't do much at all. I honestly think if they did a massive reno inside & showed some love to the place it would wrack up a lot of $$$. I would never go back, even for $80 p/n. Extremely disappointing.

Thank you Jazz22 for taking the time to post your feedback on the Oaks Ranch and Country Club. I am sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your stay at our 3 star property, We strive to give all guests a true Ranch experience rather than a stay in a hotel room- we offer great food and coffee, the opportunity to play golf on our on site course or take a trail ride on one of our beautiful horses or just sit by the pool and enjoy the wide open spaces and amazing views.
We always tell guests that if they have a problem with anything during their stay to please let us know so that we can rectify the problem, had we known that there was a problem with your heater we could have replaced it with a new one.
I am currently reviewing our complimentary toiletries as we are finding that many guests are bringing their own, particularly when they have specific requirements.
The owners of the Ranch do have plans for renovation in the near future which will involve make overs for all the rooms whilst retaining the Ranch charm of each.
We love being able to share this amazing property with guests from all over the world and all walks of life and hope that you will return in the future.

My wife and I spent a couple of days at the Ranch in March 2013. We enjoyed the magnificent views from our doorstep and the peace and serenity that the Ranch provided. The golf course although not long provides a challenge for all standards of players. Keating, the donkey, provided us with a bit of fun whilst feeding him and there are many other animals around including kangaroos which come very close to the accommodation. Tess and her team are very accommodating and made our stay most enjoyable. The food was good, the coffee great and being able to have a glass of wine or beer made for pleasant evenings. We are going back with friends later this month.

A great place for the whole family , all ages. The staff was so friendly, Outdoor barbeque area suited our needs to cook and sit outside looking at the rolling hills. Enjoyed the golf course, the location so idealy placed for local attractions. Rooms are a little dated but neat and clean. Great views and so many pluses including all the animals and horse back riding for the all.

My husband and I spent a couple of nights at the ranch, and we enjoyed every minute. It is so quiet and peaceful, with only the sounds of nature. All the animals on the ranch are beautiful, a well as the wild ones. Tess and Terry and their family are so warm and welcoming and will help you with anything. We visited Batemans Bay, Moruya and Mogo - plus Mogo Zoo. It is in a great location, only a short drive to anywhere for a visit. A beautiful place to stop, stay and have some quiet time for yourself.

My hubby and I spent two great nights here. The ranch is beautiful with superbly kept grounds and ample wild life. We booked Sunday and Monday night so it was just us and another couple at the ranch. So the ranch was pretty much ours...along with the cat Keira. She checked us into the room and stayed with us the entire time.

Must give 100% for service. Tess was awesome; she checked on our ETA around 3 pm because she wanted to take a dip in the pool and didn’t want us unattended on arrival. She also made the yummiest and I think unique Satay Chicken Pizza. She is so friendly and welcoming, I felt like she had been my friend for years.

We didn't get to ride the horses because there were massive thunder storms on the weekend and grounds were wet. The golf course looked fantastic but none of us are golfers or were interested in sweating it out the next day. We took dozens of pictures of Kangaroos at the ranch who seem quite used to people. One of them was lying in the drive way at night and didn’t bother getting up at all so we just drove around him.

Rooms and Bathroom are not fancy, just comfortable and functional as on a ranch I guess. However, the main building, bar and pool area quite nice. Batemans Bay is ten minutes away with some nice cafes and few restaurants.

Room Tip: We got a free upgrade to the queen room which was nice sized. Standard rooms are small as noted by a...

Nice dirve and after a warm welcome from Tess and Terry we were mixing with the locals and having a ball. Next day nearby oysters and water for lunch and had to eat at Oaks again because we felt like being at home.
Clean, comfotable and warm. Great bed and the surroundings are peaceful and tranquil.
Loved the golf in a typical country course and we are already planning our next visit to see our new friends again.
Thanks Tess and Terry we had a brainstorm to come here and will be back.

Room Tip: Just ask Tess and she will sort it
