Nothing was too much trouble for the staff at Peppers Craigieburn when we held our 5 day conference there. From reception to restuarant to function staff everyone was kind and courteous and only too willing to help. The rooms are functional and comfortable and mine had a beautiful view over looking the golf course. It was great to sit out there on the Verandah in the morning with a cup of tea and look out over the view.
From a function perspective the greatest plus for us was the range of breakout spaces around the venue. During the day our groups could sit outside or find a cosy spot by one of the three fire places to gather and chat.
The food was excellent, however there was a lot of it - more than our group could eat! Another comment I recieved was disappointment in the lack of gym facilities, however many over came this by running or walking around the local area in the morning and found that very enjoyable and a great excuse to get outside! A few members of the group played golf in the mornings too and enjoyed that immensley!
I had read some previous comments regarding the long corridors and steep stairs, however I think that this part of the experience when staying in an older style house with character and the too much modernising would ruin the ambiance. Someone to help people with bags though may be helpful as a future consideration.
I throughly enjoyed my stay here and our overall conference experience and would not hestitate to reccomend this resort to anyone.
