Great get-away
We have stayed here three times before with the first two being excellent, but the third disappointing after it changed ownership. Now it seems to be back on track. The grounds are again well kept, the rooms clean and comfortable, even if you might have to wait a while for the hot water to come through. Beds are extremely comfortable . A lot of families came to spend the Christmas holiday and children had a great time with a staff member obviously designated to entertain them. Meals were buffet style while the hotel was full, so nothing gourmet but a plentiful and well presented variety. On our first day we ordered from the menu. when there were few people. The pool is lovely, and very clean, but be prepared for the low temperature. The management thoughtfully provided entertainment each evening (singers, dancers, acrobats) and offered organised excursions (bird watching, nature walks) to those that wished.

Lovely place
The staff here were exceptionally attentive and friendly. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. Hotel needs upgrading in some respects, but the idiosyncrasies are easy to overlook because of the positives. beautiful gardens and surroundings. Very peaceful and serene, isolated (in a good way) location. Will visit again.

Peaceful and relaxing
We really enjoyed our stay. It was the perfect place to relax because of the views and birds, but simultaneously a productive place to get work done because great wifi. Meals were excellent. Staff were amazing, attentive without being intrusive. Ambrose was particularly kind. It was nice to be near town but away form the hustle and bustle and noise.

The hotel overlooks a beautiful lake, has a pool to cool off in and the food/ service was excellent. Maybe some people would think the bathroom was a bit dated but it all still works

Vor 120 Jahren bestimmt eine gute Unterkunft!
Wenn Sie noch niue ein Hotel gebucht haben, das schon vor 20 Jahren hätte abgerissen werden sollen: Das Jacaranda ist ein leuchtendes Anschauungsobjekt! Die Lage ist zwar ansprechend und auch das Personal ist sehr nett, aber ansonsten ist es eine Lotterbude!
