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.

Not worth the money!! The WiFi did not work, dust and an old sock under the wardrobe, an old sponge supplied for dishes, cupboard where the fridge is was very dirty. We had a three night stay and were supplied 2 coffee bags. So if you want more than one coffee pack your own. Info pack was not updated since 2018 and we constantly got a message bank when trying to reach the owners. Grounds are lovely and the location very convenient.

Lovely stay! This was our second time to Gilgara. Sometime between the first and second stay it has changed ownership, but I have to say nothing was too much effort for the caretakers. We stayed for 6 nights for my partners 50th birthday. I had arranged a few things to be delivered to the apartment before our arrival along with a small bunch of balloons that needed to be collected. Jenny was only to happy to pick these up for me. It was all beautifully arranged in our apartment on our arrival. The apartment was clean and comfortable and all amenities provided. Wifi worked perfectly. The only negative I would say is that the kitchenette is poorly designed. Having the stove hob right next to the sink is not a good idea and not ideal for putting wet dishes on. And maybe upgrading the tv to a smart tv. However, our stay was perfect in every way.

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.
