The room was clean and tidy and had everything we needed. We had dinner and breakfast at the River bend restaurant. Dinner was great and breakfast although limited in selection was...

My partner and I recently got married here, the food, atmosphere, staff & grounds were all superb. We'll definitely be coming back to reminisce. It's such a beautiful place to escape with friends and loved ones, or even a romantic escape for two.

Our room was clean and comfortable. All the staff that we encountered were both approachable and professional. We chose to eat at the restaurant on site and...

Fantastic place to stay in the town with a great range of activities to keep you busy! Amazingly welcoming service from the staff that service the facilities. Great views from every room. Early morning golf was a great way to start each day of our conference at the retreat. Staff were extremely helpful when retrieving lost property as well!

An interesting and historic town where Solomon Wiseman left his mark. The Retreat must have been the place to stay in its day, but it's getting a bit tired now. Cupboard doors that don't close properly, little bench space to boil the jug and other small but annoying issues took the edge off this stay. The general location, overlooking the...

This was the chosen venue for our eldest son's wedding. It was indeed a retreat for guests travelling from afar and needing a restful place to renew family connections, enjoy old fashioned style service and able to deal with the demands of hosting a wedding ceremony, reception and multiple guest needs. The setting on the river is tranquil, the pool...

A nice, green site which was relaxing for the most part. BUT, We got our kids looked after so we could take a few days away together and rejuvenate. Two of our three nights were like being on school camp! Weddings are held on site so throughout the night we had to deal with a steady flow of drunk guests...

I am so sorry that you were so badly impacted by a wedding held here and by wedding guests who obviously didn't do the right thing! We are a popular venue for weddings for the very reason that not only can you get married at a beautiful location by the water, but you can invite wedding guests to stay overnight...

It is not often that you look back on a short holiday break and realise that what you’ve just experienced has ticked every box for value for money, excellent service, fine food, a superb setting, tranquillity, plenty to do and very friendly and helpful staff.
