The spa pool is nice, as are the free kayaks (there are only two). The facilities are clean and comfortable. The layout of the place is strange. Our room was a double on the 2nd floor with a private balcony (nice!) but the bathroom was on the 1st floor, accessible only by going outside, downstairs, around the building, and through the kitchen (not so nice). The reception doesn't seem to be manned all day. We arrived at around 12:30pm, but no one showed up until 3. The place is far but peaceful.
Be aware to bring some food with you. The location is nice and at a lake, but if you don't have a car it is not that good to stay there as it is far away from Picton and you need a shuttle. Quiet place.
