Large studio overlooking vineyard.
A wonderful stay in a comfortable large studio. Deck had views over vineyards. Quiet location as our room was along Gillards Rd of the property. Basic and filling breakfast included, the muesli was delicious. Pod coffee machine available too. Pool was welcomed on a summer’s day. Close to great vineyards. Restaurant on site didn’t offer any takeaway/room service but did offer to make a takeaway burger for $34. So funny! Plenty of other great quality and affordable restaurants in the area. Didn’t appreciate being phoned at 2:25pm on day of check in giving us the hurry up to arrive though. Check in is from 2pm to 5pm.
