'Where to start? Everything was superb. We stayed for 3 nights and also had our wedding there. 

We stayed in the 2 new villas, not the Ashley Mackenzie. The location is breathtaking, whether your villa looks out over the lake or the Mackenzie basin, you will not be disappointed with the spectacular views. 8 of us stayed in 2 villas, both very well appointed and spacious, wet rooms with amazing views, huge bedrooms and a roomy but comfortable and cosy communal and dining area. Outdoor hot tubs also with outrageous views! 

The food was outrageously good - breakfast was tasty and filling, but the evening meals took my breath away. All freshly prepared and locally sourced, Tom obviously takes great pride in his craft, and did not disappoint. Outstanding. 

Despite this, it is the staff that made it all so special for us. Luke and Kaye have made such a fantastic place, and are very 'hands on', Anna organised everything for us and made sure our wedding - and the rest of our stay - went smoothly. Nothing was too much trouble. The other staff were friendly and helpful without being intrusive, and Tom is a very gifted chef who is also very friendly and happy to chat about the food, but also to accommodate any special needs or requests. Our children have a cows milk protein allergy, but were still able to eat like royalty. Finally, try the star gazing in the wine cellar. Unbelievable!'
