Stayed 2 nights at end of Dec so a bit late in posting. This is a fantastic and unique place to stay - miles away from rather chintzy B & Bs or large soulless corporate hotels in area. The rooms are funkily done out and have large bathrooms. with a big balcony to enjoy the views ( and kangaroos hopping around at dusk ! ) . The concept of the food is well thought out with a fully stocked fridge for breakfast and a wide range of prepared meals if you decide to stay in rather than sampling the areas many good restaurants. Nici the owner is so helpful and really went out of her way when I had to make an unscheduled trip to the local hospital one night. The overall area is great for discovering the local vineyards and cannot really be beaten - yes it might seem expensive on the surface for a B & B, but thats not a fair comparison and it is value for money and a real one-off.
