Rated 5 out of 5 by from Private, Great Sunsets and Quiet The stay at Pippin Tops was amazing for the family 5 nights and 6 days. The rooms were spacious as well as the bathrooms. Relaxing at the pool with the sunsets and kangaroos running around was really beautiful as well as the quietness. Our say at Pippin Tops was incrediable and relaxing, away from the city.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Remote, relaxing location Pippin Tops was a great relaxing family holiday. Pool was excellent as the weather was very hot. Bathrooms were modern and clean, although the family room was a little disappointing. Great breakfasts on the balcony overlooking the dam and hills.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peace and luxury Property was clean, easy to access far enough away to feel we "got away" but close enough to wineries and towns of interest

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peace and quiet We wanted somewhere quiet and away from it all. This was certainly that and more. Beautiful setting with spectacular sunsets. Great bedrooms with unbelievable wide open showers which was perfect for my disabled wife. We would recommend Pippin Tops for a great holiday.
