It was a beautiful family holiday home in a nice location. It would have been a much better if the weather was good. We’ll definitely be back there

Family trip
We had a family stay and enjoyed our visit. Quiet location, 2 bedroom loft cottage. We found the accommodation to be spacious and well situated. We enjoyed the surrounds and wildlife. Pleasant and welcoming staff. Kids enjoyed outdoor and covered pool. Our main issue was around cleanliness and we felt the bedding could have been better cleaned. The use of clean sheets wrapped around a quilt that did not appear to be washed was not what we expected. There was makeup spilt on the carpet. The crockery was not optimally cleaned. Staff were helpful when we advised of the broken items in the kitchen and let them know the makeup spill was there upon our arrival. We were happy with our courtyard and balcony overlooking a nature area and the gardens and communal areas were well maintained. We enjoyed the boat trip from the local company on Lake Macquarie.

We loved our stay. It was excellent and we will be returning. One suggestion/request...could the heated pool be kept a little warmer in winter? Otherwise we enjoyed the restaurant, loved the outlook of our townhouse and generally we’re very pleased with our stay.

No Wifi in the rooms despite Expedia entry that promised free Wifi. Manager claimed it was Expedia’s fault and we were left to suck it up. Luckily for us, mobile reception held up so we could watch what we wanted in the evenings. The rest of the resort was as expected. A little isolated but a nice spot on the lake with activities on site and a heated pool - great in the cooler weather!

Convenient for weddings or parties on site. Comfortable and convenient with parking right outside. Need a bit of updating and a new mattress. Most convenient location for onsite wedding. Quiet with beautiful gardens and lake views.

I enjoyed the location, amenities and proximity to the lake . Unfortunately, we couldn't use the indoor pool with my kids due to a raucous group of men drinking alcohol and swearing plus the outside bins for the property was filled with maggots.
