I stayed here recently for a wedding, so I was really lucky to see more than just the rooms at the resort. The golf course was stunning, staff were nice and the venue (which was held at the golf course) was beautiful. Also, it's a nice short drive to anywhere.
The real downside was the uncleanliness of the rooms. Stains, dirty bench-tops, mouldy shower...it wasn't very nice. Also, for the $100+ we spent a night for the room, we had to make up our own beds such as putting the sheets on, pillow cases on, doona cover on etc. You see some pretty horrible stains on the bed sheets, mattresses and such when you make your own bed, yuck!
In all honesty, I wouldn't stay here again only because of the dirtiness. I really liked the grounds and I like the venue and staff, but not again!
