No go herePosted 20-Sep-2016 on Wotif
Cons: Put it under new ownership.
Location: Poor road access - too far to get adequate food supplies in.
There were no meals provided as per the advertised web site. Upon arriving and finding that the restaurant was not functioning and then dished up a heated pre cooked meal that was very sub standed was very disappointing. Contact with the owners who don't live on site revealed the restaurant would be open the following night with a qualified chef as I had organised a group of 10 people for a surprise birthday celebration. The menu provided displayed a large selection of organic meals from entree's to deserts - we were provided with one course of a very ordinary Indian meal that was pre cooked at another location brought in and it was not even heated properly. One staff member refused to serve the meal from embarrassment. The two staff on location are employed to work outdoors, but told to work indoors when they don't have the necessary qualifications to perform these duties. Nor do they have the necessary qualifications to work in a kitchen, prepare meals or serve same. There does not appear to be any proper health and safety checks regarding food. The reception area is not staffed, restaurant and amenities area are not adequately heated, management uninterested in any form of customer service, unhygienic bathroom areas, poor lighting in accommodation and two members of our group suffered tick infestations. Accommodation is very over priced with health and safety issues not taken into account. Overall a total embarrassment to take a group of friends to.

Not what we expected...Posted 26-Sep-2015 on Hotels
Very average service from NEW management(from not finding our booking, not being in the type of accomoodation we were booked in, having to move room the next day and the list goes on). Their main website's not up to date with the changes so we had misled information about what to expect. farm animals probably need to be looked at, the chickens have got no coop/hen house-collecting eggs each morning is to look everywhere since they lay anywhere. We had a decent stay and started to settle and enjoy the surrounds after we move to another room the next day. What was to be a fully relaxing break from the city was not to be, with all the issues faced. Probably will go back again if management sort out and handle these issues effectively. (we aren't the only ones having such problems).

Pros: Great customer service, the animals were very friendly, great holiday for a young family
Cons: Kettle had residue and the dirt road would be difficult in foul weather
The bush walks are great, the owners and very active in maintainence and the feed is free and you can have fresh eggs if the chickens have laid some.
