Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
The property is all about the location. It’s rustic and you have to accept that it’s a building from 1859 and it’s renovation is old too. It’s like staying in a farm stay and that’s ok but the lack of openable windows means the place smells dank. The oven was unusable (if not dangerous), the kitchen door is on one hinge and our food order was never received (although an email was sent). The place is run by like the heritage or vic gov so you it’s not professional. If you can accept this then you will find it charming. It’s the location and history you are there for and that’s great. For the price you pay though you’d expect at least 3 star accommodation.

A great experience being able to stay overnight within an historical precinct. Just you, the wildlife and the most amazing stars you'll ever see.

Had the entire property to ourselves. Absolutely loved the isolation and the view from our window was incredible. We even had a visit from the ghosts!! Loved it.
