For a 4.5 hotel, Karriview Lodge is fantastic. Staff are friendly and accommodating.
Upon arrival, they served us with cake and coffee. Even my toddler was served with yummy cake and a baby chino.
The accommodating admin and (Cameron Diaz's look alike :) ) assisted us and let us choose our preferred room as we have a little mate. Olive's 2 is great since we have a loud toddler. It has a private balcony facing Karri trees and large enough for us 3 though it didn't have a spa bath in it (I love spa bath). The toilet's is not that good and the floor looks like vinyl. Unlike other 4.5 accommodations, it doesn't have robes or slippers or lovely smelling toiletries. The room itself is very much different like you are really on a retreat! The room looks clean too. It's only the toilet that I don't like. The main door is directly facing the olive trees and is almost at the golf course. The view is very relaxing and very green. I have found a spider on my pillow cos it is situated near the forest. Also, one thing I hate is that on the second day, somebody occupied the next room and gosh they were noisy! Like there is somebody walking on the roof or something. I don't know if it was the occupant or the way the room was built adds up to the noise they make.
The restaurant has a fantastic view and the chef and his staff are very friendly. Good food indeed! Breakfast is continental. I am just surprised that they offer very limited options for the buffet and you've got to pay for your eggs! First time that I have encountered such. We had lunch outside as
we explore the other parts of the region. For dinner, the firewood pizza is my favourite soo yum! And the canapés most of all the chicken liver parfait, I could eat those alone! The salmon and lamb chops were all good too! The chef made my toddler's favourite neopolitana.
The chef is friendly and his staff were good too! I am happy that when I arrived the restaurant on our last day, our table was all set and with a high chair.
All in all, Karriview is a good place to stay. Nice place, good food, good staff and most of all child friendly (even though they don't provide cot, you have to bring your own). Will definitely come back.
