Nice resort 3rd time for us

Spacious room with huge and spotless bathroom, double sink which was awesome. I liked the opaque glass walls separating toilet and shower from the rest of the bathroom. Foxtel or movie channel option would be an advantage, offering only sport was disappointing considering its a 4 star establishment. The grounds and views from room were breathtaking.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
We stayed in a one bedroom spa suite, with a balcony providing some amazing views of the resort. Staff were very friendly at check in. The bedroom, living area and bathroom are nice and spacious. The bed was very comfortable. Robes and slippers were provided for after a shower/spa bath (no bubble bath provided though, so BYO). The TV has a selection of free movies available to watch. Free parking on site- it would be beneficial to allocate a parking space to each room for proximity purposes, as they get taken up quite quickly. There are wine tasting available each day at the resort, which is free for guests. Jenny accommodated us at our wine tastings and she was great!! Very knowledgeable, humorous and attentive, despite being very busy at the time that we attended. We really enjoyed her service. :) In terms of winery tours, only one was running at the time of our last minute trip and it was booked out by the time we arrived, so make sure you book early if you can. Alternatively, it's easy to do your own if somebody is happy to drive. There is also the option of taxis, but no Ubers in the area. There was no free local area shuttle, as stated under the property amenities (the staff member was not aware of this when we inquired at check in).
