Hidden Valley Lodge is an unpretentious retreat set in a natural wonderland that is fantastic in the true sense of the word. I felt like I was in another world.
The River deck suite provides the perfect accommodation for a group of up to four people. Full kitchen and bathroom facilities are provided along with a cosy living area complete with TV, DVD player (DVDs available to borrow) and a stereo with a CD player and i-pod dock!!! The suite also has 2 separate bedrooms with comfortable beds and extra blankets for particularly cold nights.
Tam and Charlie are your hosts and they provide a warm friendly welcome and unobtrusive service. Fresh fruit, bread and yoghurt is provided daily for breakfast along with tea and coffee facilities. Hidden Valley Lodge not only boasts large, beautiful grounds but also an outdoor heated spa (which can be booked in hourly timeslots) and a hot tub on the deck (also booked in hourly timeslots). BBQ facilities are provided and meat packs can be purchased on site.
Although you will have to drive an unsealed road to get there, it can be done with a normal car (you do not need a 4WD). Do not let it put you off.
We were only able to stay one night, but i highly reccommend that you stay at least 3 or 4.
The most surprising part of it all is that the price is not budget breaking.
