These lodges are beautiful but they are dark inside and you do get a slight musky smell, we overheard other diners at breakfast complaining to the front of house about this. Our cleaner was amazing and was always smiling away. We felt there was a slight push from the front of house to book dinner there and book excursions through...

I cannot say enough about their incredible staff, housekeepers, ground staff, servers, reception, management - they were fantastic, so pleasant and helpful - nothing was too much trouble! Our little cottage was amazing, beautifully decorated, luxurious bed, freestanding bath, glass ceilinged...

Absolutely superb. Colonial style main house with rondval type detached accomodation within the beautiful gardens. Swimming pool (too cold when we were there) but really wonderful place to stay. Superb food, quiet, peaceful and really excellent value for money would not hesitate to stay again should our paths take us this way again

Phenomenal service and such a beautiful place! The attention to detail was fabulous. Comfy bed and divine breakfast. Stayed one night and felt well rested, wish we could have stayed longer! Travelled with a 9 week old baby, the camp cot was set up when we got to the room and there is a babysitting service if required. Thank you...

This is a quiet location where the accommodation is set in your own lodge situated in the beautiful grounds. These are well appointed and extremely comfortable, I can personally recommend number 15. The food was delicious and the attention to detail was second to none, one guest was surprised to find that his car had been washed for him prior...

We mostly enjoyed our stay at Hunter's Country House. The place is located very conveniently to get to all the local attractions we wanted to visit. It is close to the main freeway but is deep in the forest (about 1 km to the gate) and the territory is big and beautiful. The family house was nicely done (a bit...
