Rated 2 out of 5 by from Let down by the small things The land is beautiful and house reasonable considering the set up for a large number. Was very disappointed the spa didn't work for us and similar to other reviews had a number of small issues such as dirty dishes in the oven and cupboard. Had contacted agent regarding spa at the time and received a response but also raised power issues to no response. Also provided feedback via email with no response after 5 business days.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from BE PREPAIRED This place has a lot of pros and cons. PROS - great spa, don't let anyone touch controls who hasn't read the instructions (typical boys) - huge property on amazing grounds - huge gas cooker and oven in kitchen - big heater in kitchen although using this at the same time as the dishwasher does trip the fuse - big bunk room with TV & bathroom and big heater (warmest room of the property) - pool & ping pong tables for entertainment with all equipment provided - plenty of HOT water - big spa bath in one of the bathroom although we didn't use it as had the spa pool going - plenty of cutlery, but recommend taking sharp chopping knives - spare gas bottle for BBQ - two fridges - plenty of seating - plenty of firewood provided - lots of cute sheep to watch I feel this place would be great in the summer time when not so cold and you can make use of the heated pool CONS - COLD!!! We stayed in June over the long weekend. This place looks like an old converted barn so absolutely no insulation. We arrived at 3pm and lit all 4 fire places and it didn't warm up until the next morning - Doonas are very thin and not many extra blankets if you have place booked to capacity, bring extra if staying in winter - no linen provided so we hired. Linen is old and miss matched and not worth the $30 a bed we paid. I'd recommend to take your own - the BBQ is old and rusted out so takes for ever to cook anything on it. We resorted to using the wok burner on the side which obviously hasn't had much use but not ideal when cooking for 16 people! - lists property as having 4 double/ queen rooms. One of which I needed to message the cleaner to actually find!!! It is in the pool room, which is noisy from pool pump and incredibly cold and a little creepy. It might be OK in summer but we didn't end up using it - some of the mattresses are lumpy from springs or very thin - we had to rewash a lot of the cutlery/ crockery before using as wasn't clean - two heaters were not working - the real estate company who are the agents are very nice but terrible on email - if you need anything best to call - not sure how thorough cleaning is as when we were packing up we found a broken wine glass under the bed in the en-suite room - room in main building can be noisy as the walls don't reach the roof

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great escape! Lovely location with great views in every direction. Lots of space and areas for all to enjoy. Well equipped kitchen. The games room pool and spa were wonderful and well utilised by our group.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent property Exceptional property. However, we would suggest a walk-in refrigerator to accomodate for the amount of food/drinks required for the max. guests over a long weekend stay. Another downfall was the inadequate spa. Otherwise, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, facilities are great, bunk room was comfortable for the kids, along with the pool and games room. Good property layout, clean property & fantastic views!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from FIVE STAR PRICE FOR BELOW BUDGET STANDARD!!! If you stay here be prepared to spend a couple of hours cleaning the place first. To note you will also have to buy the cleaning products as there are none at the property. Nor are there any cloths or sponges. There are only mugs and flutes to drink from. Cooking pots rusted and need to be washed. There is no basics in the kitchen...cling wrap, aluminium foil, bin bags or hand soap. The spa stopped working after the first day. Also buy drinking water as the tap water tastes like the pool. Location is nice and the view from the back deck is relaxing with lots of bird life and kangaroos early evening. One other thing, the description of 4 doubles should state that one of these rooms is next to the laundry and pool pump room (noisy and contains holes in the floor - unusable) Have stayed in better, definitely cleaner, accommodation for half the price.
