Our third stay at Tea Trails and it is consistently excellent. We have stayed at Norwood bungalow, Castlereagh bungalow and this time at Summerville. All bungalows are terrific with Norwood being better for a big group (five to six bedrooms) and Castlereagh and Summerville being better for couples or two coupes, as we were this time. The staff are superb - friendly, polite, discrete yet always second guessing your requirements. The location is magical - overlooking the lake and its various calming activities and changes of light. The rooms are luxurious yet unpretentious - all needs catered for in generous servings of space and beautiful linens and furnishings. The food is superb and plentiful and the wines are excellent (we noted an improvement since our last visit in 2010). Make sure you take a tea factory tour with Andrew Taylor - great knowledge, presentation skills and sense of humour!
