Absolutely worth the trip !! Superb food and wine and impeccable service. Nothing too trivial or difficult. We had the 5-course degustation - with the incredible 'added extras' and the amazing matched wines, it was more than enough - divine ! Stay overnight if you can justify it - breakfast is beautiful and the kitchen tour is well worth it....

We were so looking forward to our stay at the Royal Mail. The highlight was to be dinner which had been booked well in advance directly with the reception staff. We arrived in the dining room at 8.15pm to discover that the a la carte menu was not available. The only choice was the tasting menu which we elected to...

Dear Sammy , Thank you for your feedback. I would like to note that I personally spoke with you prior to your departure from the Royal Mail and as you mentioned, I committed to following up once I had spoken to all team members to gain some clarity about your experience which is very much at odds with that of...

Much has been written about this wonderful hotel in the Grampians in Victoria. I don't want to repeat what others have said. The only disappointment we had for the whole weekend was that our room did not have a full mountain view which is what we expected when we booked. The hotel should tell guests when booking that some rooms...

Beware when booking this hotel that the charge for the first night will be deducted immediately and that they do not take cancellations lightly ! After booking on the previous morning for two days we called in at 11.30 am and asked to downgrade to one day but were told we had to cancel 48 hours in advance -- which...

I spent last weekend at the Royal Mail with a group of friends and had such a great time I felt compelled to write my first Tripadvisor review. Our accommodation was the Mount Sturgeon Homestead, which is a very elegant old squattocracy era home that has been thoroughly restored. On the outside, the restoroation is meticulously authentic to the original...

What a beautiful location and a magnificent place to stay. The view from our room was stunning; we had kangaroos, birds and a garden of beautiful Australian natives on our doorstep. The food was delicious and the wine list extensive. Couldn't ask for more!
