Stayed in the Opulently decorated Dame Melba suite. Parked the car and walked everywhere. The wonderful owner has thought of every possible luxury to ensure you get thoroughly spoilt! Breakfast was delicious and eating it in our room with the sun streaming in was pure bliss.

Thanks for taking time to post a review. Yes the Lumberjack cake has been a hit and many more have been made. A guest recently requested carrot cake, so that has replaced the Lumberjack Cake. Xmas is around the corner, so guess Xmas Cake will be out in December. The weather has warmed so guests are enjoying breakfast in the...
