My husband and I recently stayed in the King chalet, overlooking the vineyards, in this beautiful piece of paradise. It was a very relaxing getaway with a large comfortable bed, well equipped kitchen and spacious bathroom - everything we look for in a perfect holiday stay. The location was fabulous too. We will definitely be returning. chris
Loved the location of the estate, really felt like we were in the middle of the bush. There was amazing wildlife around our cabin most days. Wonderful walking tracks around the estate. Our cabin offered a small bbq outside and a large spa bath. Downside was that reception is only open until 5pm. No additional blankets provided, the bedrooms do get cold at night as the heating is only in the lounge & dinning area. Bathroom bin wasn’t emptied from the previous guests. Fresh linen bags were dumped outside one of the bedroom windows early in the morning, waking some of the occupants up. Lovely place, would stay again during the winter (but will bring own blankets).

We had our wedding at Eight Willows Retreat in May 2021 and had a great experience. Our bridal party and the majority of our guests stayed on-site. Eight Willows Retreat is an excellent wedding venue. There are a few ceremony areas on offer and plenty of stunning photo locations on the property. The reception venue is fantastic and well managed. The on-site accommodation is of a high standard and very comfortable. Will definitely stay again. Sarah Byrne
Peaceful and relaxing and spacious accommodation. Comfy beds and well equipped kitchen plus homely wood fire. Yvette Hannebery
Wonderful place surrounded by beautiful wineries. We loved watching kangaroos hopping around the property. The only thing that requires improvement is customer service. Woman working in the reception was unfortunately very rude and unhelpful (-1 star). Rose Liu
