Reviewed September 2, 2011

Owners Rude and Difficult to deal with, Rude unhelpful attitude , Accomodation is very outdated and not state of the art products as they boast about. Didn't feel welcome especially in another persons backyard very uncomfortable. I wouldn't stay again and wouldn't recommend others doing so such a complete disapointing experience.and certainly a costly mistake on their behalf as i write reviews for a international travellers book. My friends were looking forward to hearing about my experience and would have considered having a few relaxing massage sessions for a hens night as well as having accomodation for their wedding night have changed their minds and have found much nicer accomodation else where. if one can't manage self control running a business they are going to lose thousands of dollars via word of mouth..

Bizarre owner extremely difficult to deal with. The behavior was at times very funny if it wasn't for the fact that we were paying for the so called 'therapeutic' treatments in the small tacky shed in a pensioners back yard.

Something is wrong here - looks deliberately libellous. There is no 'tin shed'? rather an expensive 1 1/2 year old luxury extension to the existing hydrotherapy and massage rooms, which houses a $60,000 Aqua Massage machine, Foot Pedicure spa chair, heated massage chair (similar to those in the cottages), Oxygen therapy machines etc? Brick? Crystal chandeliers. Ceiling roses - all new??
