I didn’t get the room that I was booked - the on advertised with photos was totally different from what they gave me. The room was just next to the public toilet of the hotel. The bathroom in the room was a nursing home bathroom and no very clean. I talked about this to the lady on the front desk, she talked to the manager and they said they can not help, even though when we showed to them the website were they advertised the Villa Suit room that has nothing to do with what they gave to us. Therefore, we did the check out and went to another hotel. Another thing, the food is pricey and not good at all. Not a five stars hotel standard at all.

Beautiful place to stay, with very welcoming staff. Loved playing croquet on the lawns and sipping champagne in front of the fire! Room was very comfortable, with everything you would expect. Indoor heated pool was a lovely place to hang out in the afternoons.

Special place to unwind

Great spot to relax at the end of our Tassie holiday. Comfortable throughout with helpful, courteous staff. Very different from a standard hotel with the well appointed library/games room overlooking the split level lounge room in front of the fire place. We were made to feel special by the staff and the building is superbly decorated and felt like we were staying in a Mediterranean castle.
