I have enjoyed breakfast at many 5 star hotels around the world and this is the BEST ever. Eggs cooked to order, coffee on demand, freshly prepared food that is always being replaced, most attentive staff I have ever seen make this an experience not...More

Really disappointing meal for price. Sent my main back as wasn't cooked. Dessert was average at best. Wine glass literally broke in half in my hand was so poor quality. I've eaten in a lot of similar restaurants and this place needs a serious makeover....More

A surprisingly refined menu, a good wine list and a knowledgeable sommelier took this out of the average range of resort restaurants. My steak and my partner's fish were both beautifully cooked and attractively presented. Service was attentive without being a nuisance.

This would be an OK option for families and friends looking for a meal but it was a far cry from the fine dining experience we were expecting. Too many people, kids running around and staff were run off their feet.

Beef is first class and perfectly cooked - a little over salted for may taste. First class wine list

We had the new menu on the first night and our entrees were amazing. Would be great to have a few more options for the main course as it wasn't as impressive. Breakfast was also well done.

vegetarian choice was poor but like us she had heaps of side dish food and all of the side dishes were great. The steak was mouth watering. The others had chicken or lamb and everyone enjoyed their meals

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Interested in driving up the valley from Newcastle with a group to have breakfast. Is it possible to book in for breakfast on a Sunday morning. Is it buffet style? What is the cost?

Response from Eric T | Reviewed this property |
Not sure if you can book as we eat there when we stay at the hotel and we just walk in. You can always ring and try, if they don't take booking, just come a bit earlier as the restaurants fill up from around 9am onwards.
