“A lovely experience”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

Using an accommodation voucher, I took my sister here for her birthday and we found it to be very charming, with more than a hint of luxury, The house and grounds are beautiful and the staff were wonderful, from greeting me by name at the door, to giving excellent service at dinner and in all other areas. Our food was some of the best we have had - innovative with perfectly cooked lamb and salmon and a lovely bottle of wine provided as part of the package. Continental breakfast was elegant and wonderfully helped by fresh squeezed juices, home made muffins, and other lovely options. We found it a joyful start to our food and beverage tour of the region - just about perfect.

Room Tip: Ours was lovely looking over the fields - but they all had lovely aspects. A little bit more size wo...

The Manor House looks like a very old and long established country manor but is a relatively new converted very large family home on a grand scale and set in beautiful grounds. The even newer Spa House contains accommodation and the on-site spa. All facilities are of a very high standard, well maintained and very comfortable. Our dinner was a multi course set meal with wines. The food was exceptionally good - varied and interesting and the wines pleasant but not outstanding. Small serves were appreciated with the number of courses and each was a treat.
Breakfast service was extremely slow, but it was supposed to be a relaxing time, so perhaps this should have been expected. Breakfast was good quality if a little pedestrian and not quite living up to the beat-up ("it will set you up for the whole day...").
For the price, there were a couple of rough edges, a few slips in meal service and a couple of neglected services (parts of the package that were not delivered) but overall it was a thoroughly enjoyable (but expensive) weekend.
Our Garmin GPS could not find the road number but Google Maps found the property and the nearest cross roads worked in the GPS, eventually.

Room Tip: Spa House and lakeside chalets are away from the main house if there is a group of party goers in re...

We stayed in the lovely Hotel for our 27th Anniversary. My wife enjoyed a welcoming massage treatment in the nice spa. We had a great meal with special treatment for dessert. Fantastic breakfast and the nicest room overlooking the lake. All the staff were courteous and attentive. We will be back again and stay longer.

Room Tip: The room with the spa overlooking the lake is fantastic.

We arrived and were greeted by a very gracious host who showed us the entire Estate. we were placed in the massage section. Two rooms and the massage rooms! Our room was about 75 metres from the main, [gorgeous] home. The room was rather warm, due to the fact that their was only a control for the floor, not the room. Fairly steep staircase as well! Decided to open the windows to balance the atmosphere and found their were no fly/mosquito screens. With the semi filled dam adjacent we were not prepared to take the risk with mossies!! Therefore remained a little uncomfortable.

Settling down for a relax we were disturbed with a staff member dropping off 2 bottles of water! Why was the water not in the fridge?

Had a nice meal in the brasserie, with an over priced and limited wine list. Nice but nothing special.

Over all for our stay I was disappointed. This was mentioned to the delightful person at reception. We mentioned that we felt away from the facilities of the main house by being in the spa area. She suggested that as the rooms were larger there, the felt we would like them better.

Great staff, nice food but undoubtedly better value is available abundantly.

Quick note about the bed, not comfortable at all.

Room Tip: Stay in the main house

Went there with a friend for dinner. It was warm evening and with long evening light due to daylight saving we sat outside. Staff were great - friendly and attentive. The food was also terrific, I had duck which was really tasty then we shared a cheese platter. Listening to the sounds of the water birds was a lovely way to have a slow dinner and relax. If you are staying in this area, I would recommend eating here for sure.

Room Tip: did not stay

My husband and I stayed here using a Groupon voucher. It was unfortunate that management did not allow us to book a Saturday night even though there was availability!!!
We were in a very small room overlooking the carpark. With the manor situated on such beautiful grounds - this was quite disappointing.

The room was comfortable, however, with tea making facilities and a jar of choc-chip cookies which was a nice touch. It seemed like the room had not been dusted for a long time, which was hazardous to my allergies, and my hubby had to do a quick wipe down. I also found the room quite chilly in the evening, but the beds/pillows were very comfy.
Continental breakfast the next day was minimal for the amount of guests staying (ie there were only 4 muffins!) but it was really peacefull to sit out by the lake and the service provided by Molly was lovely. It's a nice place to relax and explore the local area, however I think it's a little over-priced.

Room Tip: request a room not overlooking the carpark!!
