The property was beautifully maintained and clean. Very quiet, peaceful and private. There was nothing I didn't love.

Loved the quiet, leafy location and outlook. The facilities were good, loved the spa and sauna. Bed very comfortable, and it was great to look out through the treetops. Also, the breakfast - served to our room - was fantastic. We appreciated the late checkout too. One thing to be aware of is that the venue would not suit anyone with limited mobility. Access between floors is via a steep spiral staircase. The bedroom is on the top floor, the bathroom (and toilet) two floors down. So, while I understand the retreat has been built to maximise the outlook, there is a compromise in terms of the practicality of the venue.

We arrived late after work around 7:30pm - it was a cold night and when we walked inside, it was beautiful and warm, music going, it was extremely romantic. We had such a cozy stay. Breakfast in the morning was wonderful, felt like we were at home. We just needed to remove ourelves from society which is exactly what was achieved. We will definitely be back! Thankyou so much for a relaxing quick getaway
