It was a beautiful place to stay and a very romantic setting. I went over the long weekend with my new girlfriend. It has a beautiful view of the lake, forest and city. Unlike other hotels on the south coast it is clean and the service (from Greg) is very good.

Beautiful location but out of town. The rooms were comfortable but decor was a bit like grandma's place and seemed a bit tired and in need of a spruce up. The only staff we saw (one person) were helpful and informative. Breakfast was disappointing - an additional $18.50 pp for continental breakfast with bad coffee. Could had a hot breakfast at a cafe in town for that. It was an OK place but not worth the money.

Thanks for the review folks. We are in the process of renovating our rooms and in the process we are slowly getting rid of the "grandma" decor. Being a family business quite often you will only see me in the guest relations and restaurant side of things but rest assured the other minions are hard at work behind the scenes. I also understand that coffee is a very personal thing, we freshly grind our beans daily and try to provide a product that most will enjoy. The continental breakfast also includes fresh fruit salad, our famous home prepared rhubarb and berries, fresh Greek yogurt, dried fruits, toast accompanied with a variety of preserves including homemade jams and marmalade's, a variety of cereals and muesli, juice and tea or coffee. I hope you will come back and check out our renovated apartments.

Very nice hotel located in an isolated and perfect spot near the lake. Very peaceful and relaxing. Rooms were spotlessly clean with a comfy king size bed. Kitchen is quite well equipped with everything you need. The owner and staff were magnificent always trying to make your stay pleasant. Highly recommended.

Lovely and secluded

The hotel is in a lovely, secluded area of bush but still conveniently close to town. Staff were friendly, the room was clean and the bed was super comfy! Breakfast the next day was good, it's great that staff help with local information if needed. A great place, we'll visit again.

Peace and quiet in an otherwise hectic world

The long winding drive down the hill adds to the anticipation and when it opens up to neat gardens with cabins and a wonderful vista of the lake you feel like you’ve arrived in paradise. Parking is easy, check-in easy and your room is nicely presented. Breakfast plentiful. Walking track along the lake and wharf to launch a canoe. The restaurant is only open in peak season and there are mozzies so bring some spray. Otherwise a really great place to stay.
