    Pleasant Retreat

    Improvement could be made on the grounds. A pleasant sitting place could be created for the back garden of the ground suites.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Rooms were terribly noisy all night. Slamming doors Other guests shouting and kids screaming up and down corridors. On a positive note - very central location

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    loved that it was not in the hub of the city but still accessible to all the attractions. Loved the peace and quiet and the feeling that we were in a little place of heaven, far from the madding crowd. Loved the staff and that they ALL made us feel that we were the most important guests. Everyone from the check-in to the people who cleaned the floors, would stop and smile and ask how the day was going. Breakfast included too...and a full buffet, hot and cold and all presented with a smile. Can't beat this place. We'll be back

    Another good stay.

    Really enjoyed another good stay, having been there multiple times. Although a little isolated specifically, it is located well suburb-wise for the people we want to visit.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Our suite was really comfortable with a cupboard kitchen, separate lounge area and a most comfortable, wide bed. Just have ear plugs ready as you may get noise through the night from highway traffic. But do not let this put you off. Great value for money, a straight forward drive from the airport and riverside, parkland grounds.

    The property is good, the kitchen staff is amazing. The However it would be great if the property had a gym. One thing I wasn’t happy about is that the bed linen wasn’t changed until I asked for it, even then it was partly changed.
