Verified reviewexcellent

A piece of paradise hidden in plain sight! Attention to detail, charming and efficient staff, and cuisine of the highest standard would have been sufficient but when combined with the amazing beauty of the gorge it lifts this establishment into the realms of exceptional. We enjoyed a wonderful stay and a have left The Gorge with a burning desire to return before too long.
