Beautiful country Australian setting, watching the sun rise over the hills from your room. Kangaroos grazing on the lawns. Very pleasant owners and staff.

Small room but clean with nice outlook. Evening meal in restaurant was a bit like Fawlty Towers. One waitress (older lady) pretty hopeless. Waited a very long time for meal. We decided we definitely would be having breakfast there in the morning!

Thank you for your review. You must have been staying in the Cottage Queen room (our budget room) as all the others are quite spacious. We will have a word to that waitress. We appreciate constructive comments and how we can improve our service. Thank you.

Not sure why cars were not parked correctly, the car spaces are very large and directly in front of rooms. This is highly unusual. Every room has its own water heater.
