Fantastic! We (2A & 2C) stayed for a long weekend recently. The staff were fantastic in communicating with us in the lead up to ask if we wanted any additional supplies such as bbq food, wine, cheese platters or breakfast hampers, as well as to ask what our required bedding configuration was. When we arrived everything was ready, and the staff had kindly left our kids their own breakfast bags with cereal, juice, fruit and colouring in packs. We really enjoyed ourselves, so peaceful and quiet, yet wineries and other things to do just down the road. Will be back! 4fromMelbourne (Trip Advisor – June, 2019)

showcasing another local – hargreaves hill pale ale 

Keeping true to our philosopy of promoting local, we are delighted to now feature Hargreaves Hill Pale Ale in our Mini-Bar. 

A true phoenix from the ashes tale: Hargreaves Hill is the Victorian craft brewing scene’s great survivor. When bush fires tore across the state on Black Saturday in 2009 this brewery in Steels Creek was destroyed along with most houses in the region. The following weeks saw an outpouring of support for Hargreaves Hill from the craft beer community. And, just six months later, a new brewery was re-established in Lilydale, with a larger brew length, greater process control and improved bottling facilities.
