This was the second hotel of the 5 day road trip with a group of friends.Room was ok but needed a good going over, What was the worst thing was the price of everything $13 50 for a glass of Heineken,$27.50 for breakfast and $45 dollars for a smorgasbord which was very very basic, dryed out ham etc, they claim...

We stayed for two nights (Saturday & Sunday) in March 2017. The hotel is undergoing renovation and was also full as they had weddings booked. The hotel was very noisy on Saturday night. You could hear people in the corridor and doors banging until the early hours. Soundproofing needs urgent up-grading. The room was a bit run down but the...

So much to do here from the cafe with driving range and lovely spacious grounds to the pool, spa and games area. The service was a little disorganised with our breakfast order not being collected overnight and our access card stopping working at 10 when we had an 11am checkout but generally they are spot on I would suggest if...

Great value for money. Nice modernised set-up within an older complex. Has had good investment. Clean, smart rooms looking towards a cool looking pool. Amazing (but pricey) restaurant and bar. Would definitely stay again

Could do with a little bit of spruce up but for an overnight stay it's good. The indoor pool was lovely to have a swim in after a long day at harvest. Sound proofing between rooms could be improved specially with noisy neighbours

“I stayed in Room 502. It was very modern yet warm and friendly I think that the quieter rooms front the central grassed area with the pool.”
