Had both dinner and breakfast. Both good. Breakfast a better value since it was a buffet. Prawn salad was very good.

Excellent friendly service. Meals were lovely and atmosphere was very quiet and serene. Décor was very classy and tasteful. The wine list had some excellent local wines from the Coonawarra and Mount Gambier region. I look forward to returning and sampling more.

Also my friend and i ordered the same and her meal was twice as large as mine. We both had salmon and hers was... More

Two things I would change height of chairs to table a bit low, and also add a screen between reception area and hotel lobby area to dining area, as this is fine for... More

We are here as part of our stay both breakfast and dinner. For dinner, I was pleasantly surprised, I didn't expect anything too fancy but they sure delivered. However it's not the finest dining I've had but it was a good choice. Even the side dishes were deliciously mouth watering, try the deep blue mash you'll love it. I'll upload... More

We ate breakfast here everyday of our stay. Great buffet selection which was replenished regularly. We ate at different times during breakfast and always plenty to choose from. Good quality food.

Agree with a reviewer below. The breakfasts are great with fantastic bacon cooked to perfection. Dinner was not as good. I was not that that happy with the steak as it seemed tough even though it was scotch fillet. The chicken parma was not the best with the sauce tasting a little like a cup a soup packet mix. The...

My wife and I visited this restaurant about three or four times a few years ago and at the time we placed this restaurant up there with Daylesford's Lake House Restaurant (which regularly wins big awards). We expected similar when we went there for our birthdays in early March (on a Sunday). The layout hadn't changed, but first impressions set... More
