A lovely peaceful setting, we were in the White Room, perfect hosts - they even organised 3 kangaroos + joey to hop into the garden for breakfast! From the moment we arrived to when we left everything was A1.

We booked 3 nights at Darnell as part of a last minute getaway during a break in medical treatment. It was just what we needed, restful, very comfortable and very friendly hosts. We were met with a delicious afternoon tea and the breakfast each morning was very well presented.
