Fabulous experience

Pros: The beautiful location, thoughtfully appointed, quality establishment.
Cons: My snooker skills :) Apart from that, nothing. Springs to mind.
Location: Huge lovely grounds with intersting animals. Near a lake and a big town centre. Many tourist attractions bearby including thermal pools.
We were welcomed at the door by the fabulous James who is the epitome of hospitality. He and his staff made us feel so much at home in this beautiful place. Gorgeously appointed, relaxing and indulgent.

Pros: Service was outstanding, Tommy was very friendly and charming
Cons: These rooms are close to the kitchen so when they cook bacon you smell it straight away.Oh and breakfast $20 no egg!!!!
We drove pass and missed this place twice, the signage on road side needs to be replaced or put lights on it so that guests can find you at night
