A very nice and comfortable hotel / motel. Big rooms, plenty of closet space, a big desk to work on. Modern, very functional bathrooms. A centrally located pool, a big park with wonderful Eucalyptus trees. Lovely. Friendly staff at reception and a very good restaurant. I thoroughly enjoyed staying there.

Serafino was fantastic overall! From the service at Reception, the accommodation, the restaurant (food was incredible!!), the breakfast, the wine tasting (yum!!) and the general ambience. It was all perfect!! I'm dying to get back there as soon as I can! Loved it!

A dozen of us stayed here for the night after a day out winery tasting. A great place to stay as the accomodation, restaurant and tasting areas are all at hand in a lovely country setting by a lake. Staff in the tasting area were well educated on the wines at hand and all staff were friendly. Only felt that...

Yes, Serafino seems to have been there forever, but we have never visited or stayed before- silly us! part of our visit did coincide with the great power blackout, but we could not have asked for more friendly staff doing their best to make us comfortable. The restaurant serves great dinner and breakfast and the wines are great. What more...

What a beautiful cellar door. Even more amazing accommodation. The room is wonderfully spacious, and I really liked the fact that there was a door at one end to the car park, and another door that faced out towards the three-sided rectangle of all the other rooms with the swimming pool in the middle of this space. We came for...

The accommodation is advertised at 4 star. It should be 3 star. There was nothing special about it at all. The room was large and clean but basic. The water pressure for the shower was poor. The outside surrounds were lovely though. I won't be staying there again. There was a power outage in the morning with no back up...

We spent one night at Serafino's. The unit was spacious and clean. The food in the restaurant surpassed everything we had enjoyed on the two previous days staying elsewhere on the coast. Our evening meal was delicious and slightly more innovative than I expected. Breakfast was superb too. Restaurant staff were friendly and were happy to answer questions and to...

Stayed here for a weekend of wine tasting. Found it handy, the bike path outside is very accesible to lots of the wineries and the town and a nice stroll/cycle. Breakfast only runs for 730-930 on weekends and was nothing special. Voucher for their cellar door only valid if you spend $100 on wine which didn't seem great especially in...
