Me and my wife spend a weekend at this hotel during May 2014.
Access roads are in a good condition with a few minor serious potholes. Road signs can be somewhat better but still good enough.
Scenery is excellent. Walks from the hotel is reasonable except for the Fern Tree Forest walk which was not clearly marked and I had to turn back eventually.
Food overall is excellent. It is a buffet which allows you to select what you prefer. The staff in general is very helpful and need a compliment.
Rooms are of a high standard and comfortable. We had a heater in the bathroom and room.
My wife went to the Wellness Center and was very impressed with the treatments she had.
Although there was no minibar it did not bother us at all.
I will recommended this hotel to anyone who is not ready to complain about every small detail.
