Beware when booking this hotel that the charge for the first night will be deducted immediately and that they do not take cancellations lightly ! After booking on the previous morning for two days we called in at 11.30 am and asked to downgrade to one day but were told we had to cancel 48 hours in advance -- which...

I spent last weekend at the Royal Mail with a group of friends and had such a great time I felt compelled to write my first Tripadvisor review. Our accommodation was the Mount Sturgeon Homestead, which is a very elegant old squattocracy era home that has been thoroughly restored. On the outside, the restoroation is meticulously authentic to the original...

What a beautiful location and a magnificent place to stay. The view from our room was stunning; we had kangaroos, birds and a garden of beautiful Australian natives on our doorstep. The food was delicious and the wine list extensive. Couldn't ask for more!

It was hot when we arrived but the room was air conditioned and lovely and cool. The room had sliding doors onto a private balcony...

Stunning mountain views, wildlife galore, breakfast provided and a total escape. Service was great. The place had real charm with period furnishings and real wood burning fire. Kangaroos came right past at night but the view of the mob rain fro. Your arm chair each evening was hard to match

We stayed in a Garden View room across from actual hotel. Room was very spacious, well appointed and clean. The only knock was that Wifi was not working although it worked well the following morning in the main building. Maybe this was due to the distance from main building? Breakfast was fantastic and plentiful but only one OJ with any...

Awesome kitchen and food (the best egg benedict i ever tried!) with nice terrace. Service was just a bit long. However the hotel was very disappointing for the expensive price: big room but lack of charm, quite average.
