This property, although a little run down, is in a beautiful setting a short drive into Kiama & an even shorter drive to stunning waterfalls. Our kids loved the pool, spa & tennis court but were a little apprehensive about the vegan/vegetarian breakfast. If we ever visited the area again, we would be happy to stay here again.

Customer service let the place down, such a shame it’s a lovely place. No replies to email enquiries, then when I finally was able to get hold of staff they changed my bookings around on check in and we were not able to attend a yoga class which is what we were there for so most disappointing. We were supplemented with a complimentary steam session which was nice but still no sorry our mistake etc. being nice goes a long way

We only were able to stay for 1 night over a weekend- we got in quite late - and not having room details with me had to use the after hours call. The staff were extremely prompt, polite and helpful despite the time of night. The room was very clean, well appointed and functional. The beds were definitely comfortable!

Not overall happy with the experience with the cost I paid for a night. It was run down, hot water was not hot and very basic accommodation. Towels were small. I would not recommend this to other people for the cost of a room. Very disappointed.
