“Million dollars view...”
Reviewed December 23, 2015 for a stay in December 2015

We stayed at this property overnight as a part of the family tour, all of us agreed that the view from the property is incredible...you cannot get it from anywhere else in the area.

Sadly, just like all of the older reviews had reported - the place pretty run down and it needs to be refreshed - the sky television was very out of date and it looked as someone had just plugged the new TV into the wall then forgot to tune the settings correctly. (it took us 20 mins to do that plus the TV remote was out of battery). We found cigarette butts and empty packets in the garden. Most of the amities are only for decoration purposes but does not work - eg No Gas in the BBQ and the telescope is broken. There are also a couple of doggy characters hanging out by the properties front gate (no you cant lock it) at the time we leave.

Otherwise the kitchen is fully equipped...(except for the fridge which keeps on beeping all night long...even after countless times of reset). The service was very friendly thru out our stay and at dinner service.

“The view makes this place!”
Reviewed December 14, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

The view is the reason to stay here! We stayed as a family and overall enjoyed our stay!

It certainly is an INTERESTING place, when we arrived there was no one to let us in, but the owner was keen to meet and show us around. The accommodation is tired and does need improvement to bring it up to other standards in the area. But the kitchen was fully stocked and the linen and bathrooms clean and of a 4/5 standard. Very strange outside space with a bar area and seating that look like they have been left outside in rain and sun for years.

It is quite a distance up the peak but the views are spectacular. No internet was available, not a big problem, but would have been a nice option. There is a restaurant on site, but we did not try it. (not many cars in the carpark, even on a Sat night)

Overall - Interesting place, for the cost there are probably better maintained places but unlikely to find a view that is comparable.

Best bits - The view!!

Could be improved - Quite a lot to the fabric of the building.

“Qwerky with a brilliant view”
Reviewed January 2, 2015 for a stay in May 2014

people found this review helpful

Stayed here at the beginning of May with two girlfriends. It was expensive, but ok split between the three of us. Fabulous views made this place worthwhile, especially the sunrise. But it did need some TLC, and a really good spring clean. At the time of staying there I do not think the property had been rented for some time. The kitchen lacked some basic utensils, DVD did not go, glasses dirty. Beds had no mattress protectors, just one sheet which was strange.

I did email them with a list of things to consider, so I would assume they would have taken note of the suggestions and made improvements.I would recommend this place if these minor things have been attended to.
