We had booked one night in the main house (the Grevillea Room) which looked great but upon arrival Lyn mentioned that the Donga was available for a very small upgrade and when we saw it we jumped at the chance. It was a wood cabin in its own part of the grounds with open air shower and spa, kitchen facilities - excellent. Lovely house, hosts and in great location. The gardens, wildlife, scenery - just superb. Our only mistake was booking just one night there - it was very difficult to leave! This is first on our list for places to stay if (when?) we get back to Australia.
