Wilderness Wonderland

Posted Aug 5, 2016 on Wotif
Pros: The staff and room were amazing. Incredibly welcoming, as well as understanding and went above and beyond my expectations.
Cons: Even though the rock pathway is one of the nice features of the Grove, it tough on your feet, especially if you're wearing formal shoes.
Location: The Grove is at the peak of Main Water Road, overlooking the ranges. Gallery walk is a must, as well as the many hiking trails available.
Lisson Grove is amazing, the scenery both in the resort itself, as well as close surrounding areas are magnificent and I can't wait to go back. We started our stay in the Abbey Cottage, however I personally found the bed too hard and couldn't sleep, so we got moved to the Gamekeepers Cottage, which had a much softer bed and was able to get a great night's sleep the last two nights. The Gamekeepers Cottage also is the only cottage with a veranda, which is handy if you happen to be a smoker, as it was quite a wet stay, as well as cold. Would recommend to anyone who likes the mountains, rainforests, cold weather etc.

Pros: Fireplace in the cottage
Cons: Our booking confirm listed to receive welcome hamper on Fri&Sat, that wasn't the case - misleading info; the issue handled poorly by the management

Thank you for your lovely comments Joanne. Yes, that little spider was a tricky one. I'm sure he knew when we were coming with our spider catcher and went into hiding every time.

The perfect getaway

Posted Oct 7, 2014 on Hotels
Great hosts, comfy bed, beautiful surroundings and quiet which is what you want when you want to escape the everyday chaos. We stayed in The Abbey which was very nicely decorated & Oh so comfortable. The supplied breakfast plate was ample & delicious plus we had freshly baked bread, with an assortment of spreads, and freshly squeezed orange juice delivered to our cottage each morning. The hosts & their staff were always friendly & accommodating, we couldn't fault the place even if we tried. Honestly, stay here & you can't go wrong.
