We had our wedding ceremony here back in 2005. Suzanne was amazing and looked after us so well. Her mother n law showed us around her little house, it was the most amazing place. Our room looked over lake Hayes, will never forget this beautiful special place. Hopefully we will get back there for an anniversary.

Wow, amazing venue. Very authentic and artistic especially with the welding works. Staff were pleasant and food was 10/10. I highly recommend this for events such as weddings and parties. Just be careful on the dance floor, low ceiling so if you are very tall (>200cm), you will be limited

This was the setting for our nephews wedding. The gardens and chapel are beautiful, the views breathtaking. The restaurant is spectacular with metal sculptures and features, exposed wooden beams and views of the mountain range. Attention to detail is outstanding. Outside is a gorgeous garden with ponds and bridge and more views. The meals were excellent and service great. Could... More

We stayed here two nights in the Cottage. The pictures don't do it justice. A big king size bed upstairs and the ensuite has a big dos with Windows that open for views of the lake Hayes and the ski fields. Breakfast was cooked for us each morning. This is a perfect couples location.

Greeted at the grand front door by the lovely Giselle felt like being welcomed home to our very own alpine paradise. We were instantly whisked away to our Stonecutters Cottage, an indescribably stylish, cosy and romantic setting with the most incredible views overlooking the vineyards, lakes and snow capped mountains. Wine and cheese (delicious!) were promptly delivered to our door... More

This is sort of two reviews really. My wife and I stayed two nights attending a wedding. If you enjoy lodge-style accommodation then you will love Stoneridge.
