This hotel is located perfectly for Gigrin Farm and the Eden Valley dams. Kevin and Liz were very welcoming and went the extra mile to make my husbands birthday very special. We enjoyed a fabulous dinner with amazing steak and our freshly cooked breakfast was enhanced by the local wildlife outside the window. We will be returning.
