    4/5 Good

    Lovely private natural setting. Loved relaxing in front of the wood burning fire . I would highly recommend Tracy’s mobile massage service for a perfect revitalising weekend.

    What you see is not what you get. Dirty......

    We were very disappointed. A total let down, the place is nothing like the picture. It was dirty and unhygienic, rang the manager, and they said that they would send some one to clean, we did not accept because the cleaning that needed to be done would have taken many hours, sent him photos and he apologised. We told him that we were not staying due to the condition. After 2 hrs drive, and a couple of months of looking forward to this couple of days on the weekend that was meant to be special, it was huge disappointment. The road down to the room is a dirt track, we came in a sports car, and the exhaust got slightly damaged. They should have advised that you need suitable vehicle. We ended up staying in a small motel in town that was very clean and hospitable. The manager even though we did not stay and he had the proof of the condition of the place, would not refund. Absolute theft. False advertising, must be a photo from when the place first started. I feel for anyone else who have been treated the same, or those who may have booked for future stay, they will be very disappointed and let down. This should not be allowed.........

    5/5 Excellent

    Quiet Setting

    The room was absolutely perfect! The bed was super comfortable and the spa bath was a great feature. My partner and I really enjoyed the property which was very quiet and relaxing. We enjoyed attempting to row out to the middle of the lake on the boat. We even saw wildlife in the morning around the property! My car didn't enjoy the driveway too much as it's a little rocky bit we just took it slow, next time we will take the 4x4! Very close to town which is just a short drive. Close to everything but far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet!
