I don't like giving poor reviews (the majority of my reviews on this site are positive) but this visit was such a disappointment. We walked into sound of loud sports commentary and barely a greeting. We were on holiday and happy but the man (Andrew)...More

No ambience at all and no engagement from the server for wine tasting. He is kind, but offers no direction nor insight on any tasting at all, much less the four labels sold there. Quite skippable.

This is such a lovely spot for wine tasting. The wines were excellent, and the view of Hanging Rock makes a magnificent back drop. The person conducting the wine tasting was very knowledgable of the wines.

Hi Lewis, Thank you very much for your enquiry. I'm afraid we haven't had accommodation here for nearly 10 years. To make it worse, the people who bought it are now using it as their home, so it is no longer accommodation... More
