    Absolutely beautiful

    The slab huts were beautiful, well worth splurging on. As soon as you walk in you're greeted by the smell of timber which if thats your thing (it certainly is mine) you will adore. They're cosy, homely and have everything you need for a magical stay. My hut didnt have any towels when I arrived and there were what looked like animal droppings on the toilet, plus the toilet hadnt been flushed which was a bit weird considering it had a "cleaned" seal on it. Could be the plumbing though, I'm not sure. I found a few ants in the bed, likely just a problem with the area, the nature of the hut is that its not fully sealed so a few bugs are expected. Didn't bother me and I'd happily stay again.

    Loved this place, our stay was comfortable. The cabins were a little tired but did the job. Staff were lovely. Would definitely look at trying the slab huts or stables but we had our dog with us.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Don’t be fooled by the website. There is absolutely no privacy in the Slab Huts and they look in on each other so it feels very uncomfortable. It is like staying in a caravan park but in a very dark caravan! The bath tub area was awful.... no privacy and shabby outlook. Disappointing.

    Leave your car and take a nice walk into town on the Botanic Walkway, a 2.5 km linear garden between the town centre and the Australian Stockman's Hall of Fame and Qantas Founders Museum. Booked tours pick up and drop off from Saltbush Retreat which is convenient. Garden areas are very nice.
