My cousin got married here last year, the day before the wedding they had to actually clean the barn where the reception was going to be. They where there for hours! The day of the wedding the bride and groom had their wedding photos in front of the fountain. That also was disgusting! The photographer they hired had to actually...

We used this lovely homestead, barn and gardens for my husband's 50th birthday party. The caretakers of the property (Peter and Stella) were exceptionally helpful and welcoming. A fantastic evening, great weather and company. Our group was easily accommodated in the main house, with extra beds in the ballroom. The caterers were able to take over the kitchens, and we...

We stayed in this hovel over Easter and It has to be the filthiest most disgusting joint in Australia outside of the local tip! The owner Jeffrey was to supply breakfast but it turned out to be half a bottle of left being juice that previous guests (victims), soft brown apple slices, old grapes and a plastic jug of stale...

My partner and I unfortunately paid for a room before reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. I note that Geoffrey has put responses on Trip Advisor saying he "was away". Well I can tell you very clearly that he was there every second of the day so he can't run away from this review so easily. I was told the...

Do not stay here!! I went here with my boyfriend as we had a voucher from living social, we paid $50 extra to stay in the tranquility suite. Point is it was so gross just in the entrance of the foyer we waited at a crooked desk that I suppose they call reception for 30 mins and no one came....

The review mentioned refers to a period of time when I (Geoff the owner) was abroard on holidays. Casual staff were employed at that time. Upon my return I found the property in a discusting condition which was upsetting to say the least for me. As a result of the condition the casual staff were summarily dismissed and I have...

The worst, dirtiest place I have ever stayed in or seen in Australia. I am not sure how this place stays open. Keep well well away. Disgusting absolutely filthy, with a leaky roof that had a bucket on the floor to catch the water.

My husband and I spent a lovely relaxing weekend at Wagon Wheels two weeks ago. We found it to be a relaxing and enjoyable break. Its a farm stay, not a 5 star hotel. Geoffrey is a real card and has some amazing stories. The animals were awesome, bought quite a few apples and carrots and became friends with them....

My Husband & I had a Living Social Voucher and stayed in the ‘Tranquility Suite’. To say we were unimpressed with the state of the Accommodation is a huge understatement! We are attempting to get a refund, or at the very least get a refund on our next voucher. That’s right...we were stupid enough to buy 2 of them, thinking...

We bought a voucher long before we saw the reviews so we were a bit concerned. However, we were pleasantly surprised. While some of the negative comments are true, it depends on what you were expecting. The place is unusual and not the cleanest but this is part of the laid back but friendly approach that Geoffrey, the owner, takes....
