We loved our stay! Gorgeous property and a lovely clean room (we had the family room) with a certain ambience about it. Lots of space and I loved that we could cook in the room and it also included crockery and cutlery. We wish we could have stayed longer

Woolshed Eco Lodge...beware!
We chose this place because had a 9.0 Superb rating; however, it was far from that raring. Our room was one step up from camping! Just beds in rooms, nothing else to speak of. One of the rooms had no windows. The bathroom was on an open veranda, the sheets had not been ironed, so we wondered if they had been changed from the previous guests! There is ni air-con or hearing. I had one thin bed cover and froze all night. When we were leaving, the gate was shut and my friend got out of the car to open it. The concrete driveway was so broken up that the gate was hard to open. She fell because of the uneven ground, taking skin off her elbow, knee and foot. I went to the office (9.30am) and it was shut. Another guest came to our aid and contacted the Manager. She came with some disinfectant and bandaids but did not seem too concerned, did not take details onto a report, or offer a cup of tea to my friend who was in shock. I felt they failed in their duty of care. The motto not stay at Woolshed Eco Lodge!
