Saffire had a lot to live up to, and it delivered the superb experience all the rave reviews promised. From the very moment we stopped the car, until we checked out. The staff range from warm, curtious and efficient, right up to the simply outstanding. The suite was as beautiful as its view of the bay and mountains beyond, and... More

Returning for the third time, it just gets better and better. The staff, food, wine, location and activities are first class. We only arrived back in Australia last month after a luxury cruise in Alaska and trip around the Rockies in Canada staying at the beautiful Fairmont hotels. Absolutely nothing compares to Saffire in the level of Customer Service that... More

Staff were the BEST. Nothing was ever a problem. Extremely helpful, attentive to make your stay as comfortable and relaxing as possible. Welcomed on arrival before we got out of the car. Taken inside, given a welcome drink, checked in and confirmed details. Arrive at 2.00pm but not late enough to have missed lunch. Lunch was probably the best meal... More

We went with the sneaking suspicion this could not be as good as we had heard. Well, it is. From the greeting to the goodbye it is personal and polished. The staff are professional and friendly, empowered by a management style which allows them to make decisions on their feet. This way a guests request is less likely to fall... More

It is an exclusive and expensive place to stay. The newly built lodge overlooks the Hazards Mountains, Freycinet Peninsula and Great Oyster Bay. There are only 20 suites all of which have views of the bay and the mountains. The rooms are spacious and all the modern gizmos are there. The design of Saffire is distinct.
