Amazing property with excellent facilities. Individual rural accomodation several km from Gulgong but just a short trip to town. Included facilities are BBQ area, swimming pool and communal fire pit complete with firewood, firelighters and matches. Altogether a wonderful stay.

Clean beautiful accommodation. Just what we needed after our long drive. The slab hut decor was stunning and suitable for our needs. Staff friendly would definitely stay again

Lots to love - saltwater pool, glass wall to bathroom, cleanliness, outlook, crockery etc good quality... But: *Bedding too hot for summer - duvet cover not quite enough for night. *Only one bedside lamp. *Microwave inconvenient with no Stop function. *Invading swarm of minute ?beetles, not harmful but v. plentiful - perhaps a can of insect spray could be left. (This all said for, perhaps, next visitors' greater amenity. We loved the place.)

The location and building set-up and surrounds were of high quality. The condescending notices regarding use of bedding and washing of dishes smacked of boarding school mentality and were threatening. There was no hand-sanitizer anywhere in the accommodation.

Thank you for your review. It is disappointing to receive a review like this. Regarding your comments of condescending notices. These notices are house rules that are commonly found in most accommodation facilities. Hand sanitizer is not required in all the cottages/studios, as they are not common areas and as you would have found, there were sufficient toiletries supplied. It is also very disappointing that you yelled out for our other guests to hear your comments at our staff who often go out of their way to ensure our guests are comfortable.

This was a beautiful place to stay, very secluded with an amazing view.
