Good Hotel Guide Review
‘Wow! This was good.’ A regular Guide reader offered high praise after visiting Paul and Fiona Robinson’s ‘delightful’ hotel that gazes across Gerrans Bay on the Roseland peninsula. Inside all is airy and bright, with New England-style decor; outside is a light-washed deck, above a garden sprinkled with Adirondack chairs. The atmosphere is ‘stylish but informal’, the service ‘attentive’. Two rooms occupy a nearby weather-boarded cabin. ‘Our room offered a view over the garden to the sea, a comfy bed and seating area’, although ‘the bathroom was a bit small’. In the restaurant, Chris Eden has held a Michelin star since 2012 for a locally sourced menu, including such dishes as blonde ray wing, Jerusalem artichoke, samphire, sunflower seeds and thyme roasting juices. ‘Superb food – we ate in every night’ (although with slight frustration at paying extra for vegetables). Another reader wished the food was ‘a little simpler’ but declared the potato gnocchi with her John Dory ‘a thing of genius’. Breakfast was ‘excellent’. Overall, ‘it isn’t cheap but it is worth every penny. We will return.’ (Peter Anderson, and others)
