4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Great accommodation, spacious & really comfy bed. We had a 1pm booking in the restaurant and told them we were being picked up at 3pm for a concert but didn’t get served until 2pm

4/5 Good

  • Liked: Staff & service

Beautiful views, spacious rooms, bit of a mildew problem in bathroom and bottom of curtains, restaurant has a food court feel unfortunately. Food is really excellent, but they pack you in to a small corner of the restaurant and it straddles a commercial kitchen/buffet feel versus the elegant, country, winery feel it could have with some investment.
