Room very clean however the following were very disappointing no tissues, no air conditioning only a fan to try and keep a very hot room cool, could not have the bar fridge cabinet door closed due to overheating of the fridge when turned on. No housekeeping performed during our stay. Beautiful setting very quiet and peaceful but need to lift their game on housekeeping.

Pleasant and convenient and we will stay again. Look forward to trying out the bigger rooms next time as we had the very cosy loft. Beautiful grounds and lots of places to sit in the gardens.

Pros: The fascinating history of the building and its ambience. The meal we had in the restaurant was fantastic.
Cons: People skills course for John, instal hand rail to loft bedroom all the way to top, bathroom maintenance, restore garden to former glory.
Location: Tulip Festival, Open Gardens, Mt Gibraltar Reserve, Milk Factory Gallery, Dirty Janes Warehouse, Fitzroy & Minnamurra Falls, Devonshire Tea, Berrrima
Stayed here 2008, a wonderful experience. Now in 2017 a great disappointment. Loft room dangerous to access as stair rail does not go right to top, shower screen doors off tracks, basin taps sprayed guests when on any more than a dribble. Garden has been neglected. John, the owner, was the only staff member we saw in three days. Sadly he lacks good people skills and upset members of our group. His rudeness and sarcasm were unacceptable.

What a nice surprise!

Pros: Ambiance and open fire
Cons: Great food and careful presentation. Recommend a more heartier menu.
I was very surprised how well this hotel presented - wonderfully restored and retaining original character with modern convenience.
