Stayed at The Royal Mail Hotel Mt Sturgen Cottages with two other couples last Fri. Sat. Nights.We arrived Fri. Night and had a trouble free booking in session. Booked a cellar tour for Sat. afternoon for all, and a garden tour Sun. morning for the wives. Settled in to the beautiful cottages that supply everything you could want, and lit the fire that was all set up ready,and went to the hotel bar for dinner. Great food, hot wings with soft blue cheese sauce, scotch broth, chicken parmajama,and steaks were all excellent. Toured up through the Grampians to Halls Gap and a lot of villages, and got back for our cellar tour which was ok, 26,000 bottles of wine and we only got offered one white and one red to try, but Dennis the guide really knew his wines very well. W e celebrated one of the groups 60th b/day with the degustation meal, but got our waitress (Whitney) ,who deserves a special mentIon for putting up with our rather noisy group, to help select the wines for us,and we loved every course and wine. Next morning our wives did their kitchen garden tour with the 3rd year apprentice chef Abbie and really enjoyed it saying she was very informative. Once again, thanks Whitney for your excellent service and great sence of humour and also the young lady that picked us up and drove us home in the bus and made sure everyone got back to their cabins ok. We found everything ran smoothly all weekend, and left after our late checkout,very happy with the stay and all staff
