My husband and I stayed in the executive suite for a birthday weekend away. The suite is very spacious, the bed was very comfortable and the rooms were tastefully decorated. Lovely to sit on the balcony after a game of golf and watch the sun set. On a sadder note the fridge was full of water as the icebox didn't work so therefore no ice cubes and obviously not checked before we arrived. The balcony was also dirty with stains with lots of dead leaves and twigs and didn't look as though it had been cleaned in weeks and finally while there were comfy robes to wear, the towels weren't of the best quality and were quite disappointing. Only a couple of negatives as you expect the best when you pay for the best they have to offer, but it definitely didn't spoil a wonderful weekend away.

The new lodge rooms are absolutely beautiful. We originally booked a deluxe room, but decided to change to a suite as they have a balcony and are much larger.

The suite is more like a small apartment. The bedroom is huge with a king sized bed, which is a little hard but still comfortable. A large ensuite is off the bedroom which has a large shower and bath. There is also a 2nd toilet and basin in the suite. Plenty of wardrobe and sleeping space in the bedroom. The lounge area is again large and has quality furnishings. The balcony is large with plenty of seating and excellent views. There is often kangaroos just outside.

The brasserie is pleasant. Basic menu, which is more on the side of a lunch menu but the food is good. The staff in the bar are wonderful. They are pleasant, friendly and nothing is too much trouble.

The only downside, was the housekeeping. On one day our room wasn't done at all. They only do the absolute minimum, which is make the bed and replace towels. Occasionally they replaced the coffee mugs etc with clean ones. Never once in 9 days were basins wiped, tables etc. The sheets weren't changed at all. The carpet was never vacuumed. Management need to deal with this as we noticed the tiled floors etc downstairs in the common area were getting very grubby. On one occasion it looked like housekeeping had abandoned the place, the store cupboard was left open, rooms downstairs were opened and lights on which we turned off.

All in all the place is perfect. If you are a golfer it would be heaven to stay there. Housekeeping is the only thing that let it down.

Newly opened and comfortable accommodation in the beautiful surroundings of Riverside Oaks Golf Resort. This accommodation overlooks the driving range and the lovely golf course (which is 27 holes and shortly to be 36). Kangaroos abound which thrilled children!! The rooms have comfortable but slightly hard beds, air-con, tv and sofas/chairs/desks depending on which room/suite. Shower only in some but suite had bath and shower. Electric jug for tea-making and fridge. Bistro served enormous country-style cooked breakfast or delicious croissants. Their thin pizzas are just like the Italian proper version.
We had a special dinner in the restored old court house building which is beautiful and the food stunning. They also serve high tea during the day which we had instead of lunch. This makes a good venue to explore historic Hawkesbury areas such as Windsor and the oldest church in Australia at Ebenezer.

Room Tip: If you want a bath there are suites available otherwise the rooms are good and well-equipped.

Stayed at the lodge accommodation. Was there for a wedding so accommodation was dorm style. Had no problem with this except the lodge was a mess. The common area carpet was putrid black (stains everywhere). The walls had not been repainted in 15 years. Such a shame for a place that is beautiful in setting. By the way, the cooked breakfast was very ordinary . Would not recommend the lodge accommodation. We paid $170 a night for a room with an ensuite bathroom (the bathroom was not even in the room but outside... Not much point to that)...
