It was so cold overnight. There was no extra blankets. Couldn’t leave the heater on as it was noisy. Needs a convection heater Noirot like at Cradle Mt Hotel. Overpriced for the facilities. Would be very pleasant in summertime.

Rooms are mostly fine but a bit overpriced. Bit annoyed to have paid extra for a lake view and got more like lake glimpses which was frustrating as there were a number of better view cabins that were empty. The real disappointment came at the dinner in the restaurant. The waiter was new and obviously hadn't been trained or provided enough guidance. The food was very over priced, which you could justify with the location if it was good food, but it wasn't. The steak was not bad but pretty basic steak with mash for $47! My wife got the kingfish dish but the fish was so overcooked it was powdery. Neither of us are too fussy with how fish is cooked but this was inedible. We had to send it back and wait for another dish. The table next to us both ordered 2 of the fish as well and also had to send it back. Most people in the restaurant were commenting on the poor food. The most frustrating thing is that there was no apology and were made to feel like it was just our opinion. They were more annoyed that we commented. Certainly wont be coming back.

Utensils in room were limited. One sharp knife which was not sharp, one wine glass… Included breakfast was disappointing, toasters were terrible, spreads for toast were marmalade or marmalade, one cereal choice, should have been milk at coffee/tea station, baked beans were awful. Basic breakfast choices really and staff not friendly. Won’t be rushing back to stay
