    There are very few workers in the hotel. It takes long time to get any assistance after I call from the room. It is cold to walk to the restaurant for the dinner from the villa. It is not worthy to be a 5 star hotel. Disappointed.

    Very good

    Open fireplace in room.

    Having to pay for coffee even though breakfast was included.

    I guess just the close proximity to a function I attended at Hope Estate

    The value for money spent.

    The customer service was absolutely fantastic. Rooms and facilities were beautiful. Restaraunt food lovely and staff exceptional. The Day Spa was gorgeous and incredibly relaxing. We felt extremeley welcome at the Chateau Elan, we were very well looked after and relaxed. Highly recommended to all. All staff were a credit to the hospitality industry.

    Restaraunt food a little over priced.

    Very good

    Nice big rooms including kitchen and dining area, brand new hotel. Also the on site restaurant was good.

    Big USA style development site of the Vintage was lacking passion and intimacy.

    Fabulous

    The facilities such as pool, gym and tennis courts and golf course were great. Great view from the room. The one bedroom was spacious. Staff was extremely friendly.

    The rooms would benefit from being more clean.

    Breakfast was not that great. The staff at the cage where you have breakfast were not helpful and poorly presented.

    Everything - modern, luxury, great service

    The toiletries did not look brand new which was surprising but this is a small issue which did not affect our trip

    The first thing that struck me and my wife was the friendly and helpful staff. They are great crew and a breath of fresh air. Another few positives were the room size and design, the fit out and use of room space(i.e plenty of storage and shelving and bed backing to the bath). The room also had plenty of light. We stayed in the Cairo room which was not over bearing but tastefully displayed. When going to a hotel for a restful weekend the bed is very important and this bed was the bomb. We had no trouble sleeping and the massage feature was great.

    Yes sadly the room service menu is very basic and does seem to give much of a choice for someone who requires a gluten free diet. Also in the curry I ordered I have pieces of cartilage and not I was not too sure what would be in the next bite. I reckon you could easily bump up the quality and selection on the in room menu and of course the price aswell. I think in reflection to the room prices guests will have no dramas in paying 35-45 for a main meal if It was of decent quality. Breakfast was great, thankyou.

    The Chateau Elan was a beautiful place to stay, the staff were brilliant! Every thing you could want was there, with a very well stocked minibar with wines and beers all reasonably priced. The linen and bathtowels were divine! The rooms/villas had patios that faced onto the golfcourse where in the afternoon kangaroos appeared and feed. We could not fault anything during our stay.
