I will be honest. We have been here before, but previously stayed in the homestead. Last week we stayed in the garden apartments. The presentation was clean and the peace and quiet alongside the outlook was great. The grounds are well presented with grass slopes and a pond with ducks and other wildlife scampering around. If you want quiet and peace here is the spot. The apartment… clean, tidy and comfortable. Good bed and pillows. Even with the heater system running it was a bit cool for my wife. The apartment was a bit tired and a few things were broken or in need of maintenance. Not deal busting stuff but noticed. Had to drop the rating a bit as a result if my observations and experience this time Did not detract from our level of relaxation and how much we enjoyed our overall visit.

The location was absolutely beautiful, it was lovely and quiet we didn’t hear a single guest our whole stay. Unfortunately the bathroom was a huge let down, there was mould everywhere. We spoke to the manager and she was extremely helpful and gave us a partial refund because of the conditions. The room was lovely but the cleanliness of the bathroom was a shame.

The accommodation is truly lovely. The downside is the closest parking was about a 70m walk from the room.

A lovely stay in the original cottage; beautiful lawns, gardens, and bush surrounds. Shame about no breakfast offered; I thought that's what the second 'B' stood for!!??
