The place is ideally situated with huge grounds and a lake with ducks, geese and other birds within the grassy surrounds and under the huge gum trees. Rooms are well laid out and comfortable with all amenities in the bathroom. Nice place to stay.

My family and I were looking forward to a comfortable nights stay at Serafinos however there was a rave next door and the loud music kept us from sleeping. I'm a light sleeper and the sound was awful. Felt like there were speakers in the room. Nice venue/restaurant however this bad experience has turned us off. None of the reception...

A very nice and comfortable hotel / motel. Big rooms, plenty of closet space, a big desk to work on. Modern, very functional bathrooms. A centrally located pool, a big park with wonderful Eucalyptus trees. Lovely. Friendly staff at reception and a very good restaurant. I thoroughly enjoyed staying there.

A dozen of us stayed here for the night after a day out winery tasting. A great place to stay as the accomodation, restaurant and tasting areas are all at hand in a lovely country setting by a lake. Staff in the tasting area were well educated on the wines at hand and all staff were friendly. Only felt that...

Yes, Serafino seems to have been there forever, but we have never visited or stayed before- silly us! part of our visit did coincide with the great power blackout, but we could not have asked for more friendly staff doing their best to make us comfortable. The restaurant serves great dinner and breakfast and the wines are great. What more...

What a beautiful cellar door. Even more amazing accommodation. The room is wonderfully spacious, and I really liked the fact that there was a door at one end to the car park, and another door that faced out towards the three-sided rectangle of all the other rooms with the swimming pool in the middle of this space. We came for...

The accommodation is advertised at 4 star. It should be 3 star. There was nothing special about it at all. The room was large and clean but basic. The water pressure for the shower was poor. The outside surrounds were lovely though. I won't be staying there again. There was a power outage in the morning with no back up...
