Tried contacting Rainbow Retreat for a bed but they did not reply. I suspect my age was a problem as it is mostly for young backpackers. A bit more searching found the Grey Gum Lodge. A converted old house. On arrival our host (sorry mate have forgotten your name) went over in detail the events and sights that were going... More

Hosts, Darren and Stuart run this charming etsblishment which is situated a pleasant 10 minute stroll from the center of town. Our room was spacious, beautifully appointed and had everything we needed for our overnight stay. The bed... More

We spent two nights at grey gum Lodge and we are very satisfied with our experience. The lodge is only at a ten minutes walk from the town; our room was clean and comfortable, the staff has been very friendly.

I so wanted to like this place and at first look I did but unfortunately it was lacking some necessary things. There was no hand towel, no face washer and no plug. Room 5 has the worst bed I have ever slept (or tried to sleep) in. Every spring could be felt and it was as hard as a rock... More

This little country style lodge has everything you need for an overnight stay .. clean and polished, it's very welcoming. Rooms are adequate, with comfortable beds and views out over the surrounding countryside. No meals available, thought there is a kettle for tea or coffee and a frig in your room.

Stayed here for a week while doing a course and although I left early every morning and came back late, very impressed with the lodge and service of the owners. Will definitely stay here again next time I'll visit the area.
