The reputation of this hotel precedes itself and although I had stayed there some years ago, I wanted to repeat the experience. The wonderful hospitality, delicious restaurant cuisine and comfortable rooms in a serene garden setting. Strangely, I remember little of driving from Adelaide to the Barn just outside of Mount Gambier. As I pulled up to the property I remember being greeted by a lovely young lady who opened my door and offered to take my luggage. Although all of wishes were granted from the time that I arrived, I had trouble believing that I was actually there. I simply have little recollection of even eating in the award winning restaurant or sleeping in the comfortable bed. It is as if my stay was something of a dream like experience. Although I know that this is a fine hotel, when I awoke to a new day, I was back in Adelaide and I was having trouble even remembering visiting this place. Did I actually go there or was it just a illusion?
