Beautiful and quiet location. You really have a chance to switch off from city life. The bed is very comfortable with good quality linen. The spa was a nice way to relax at night and sauna was a bonus. The pool looked amazing too but we didn't get a chance to use it. That's our incentive to come back another time!

We stayed in dreaming villa, it was so relaxing and the views were divine, it was very secluded. The place nice and clean and comfortable. Paul and he’s team did all they could to make our holiday a memorable one. Will definitely be back and highly recommend.

Just perfect, everything we could’ve possibly asked for. So beautiful, secluded and relaxing, had an absolutely perfect weekend here. Lots of kangaroos near by and the lake is also beautiful. Everything was clean, and there were so many facilities like spa, sauna, heater, fireplace, electric blankets, kitchenette, we will definitely be back.

My partner and I enjoyed our two night stay in the Gatsby Spa Suite. It was exactly what I was expecting after looking at the website and reading the reviews on TripAdvisor. The accomodation is very cosy and the location is beautiful and peaceful. The bed was very comfortable and we slept very well both nights. I loved the bathroom with the massage shower, two person spa and sauna. Paul was very accomodating and made sure we had a great stay. The voucher for Larder (cafe) was very appreciated, we had a fantastic breakfast. The only negative was the accomodation could have been a bit cleaner. I noticed a few stains on the chairs and bed linen as well as some dead bugs in the corners of the rooms. Apart from that minor issue we had a wonderful, relaxing stay.

Spent a quiet long weekend in the dreaming spa cabin. Cabin was clean and modern with double spa, sauna and comfy bed. Open fire was great as the nights were very cold ( shame we only had enough kindling and firefighters for two fires) The facilities are on par with other luxury cabins we have stayed in around Victoria , however make sure you take everything you need eg pantry items and toiletries. Expensive without any extra treats! Would definitely go back.
