Awesome place for a Tai Chi retreat, beautiful surroundings great bush walking trails really great large rooms for meetings, great lounge area, little nooks everywhere for spot of reading or quiet dreaming out the windows. Room spacious enough and had everything you need, really loved the wombat on the bed. I had dietary requirements and food and service was spectacular....

Spent three days here for work. Location is beautiful although the dirt road going in is a bit hairy if you meet a car coming the other way! Rooms are clean but small. Conference facilities and meeting rooms fantastic but the ongoing issues with Wi-Fi connection were terrible and made work difficult. Staff were friendly and happy to oblige requests....

Love this place. We have used it on a number of occasions for business meetings. The choice of meeting rooms is great. The food is excellent and the service all round first class. It is close enough to the city to be accessible but when you are there you feel a million miles away from the hustle and bustle. The...

I stayed here for a work conference. The food was very good and varied with the staff being friendly and very helpful. The downstairs rooms have very small bathrooms and can be noisy, the upstairs rooms have larger bathrooms and are not so noisy. Great location to breathe in the country air with the bonus of not being far from...

The location is off the normal roads down a dirt track. When we found the place it was locked with no one in sight. The car park was empty. To all intents it appeared deserted. After ringing the contact number and not getting through to anyone, we tried calling Agoda who managed the booking. Again a lengthy process to speak...

Our daughter had her wedding here yesterday and what a wonderful day it was. The ceremony was held on the lawn with a backdrop of the beautiful trees the Dandenong Ranges are famous for - although I believe if the weather hadn't been so kind to us it could have been moved to a room with a lovely view inside...
