Having stayed in 5 star accommodation before I would have to say that we were privileged to stay in Collage, although it was a first, it most certainly will not be the last time we book The Frames.
From entering the driveway, noting that the retreat is gated, there is an immediate sense of security. We were met on site by owner, Rick, who introduced us to all of the technical features of the villa and providing information on the local attractions and things to do, before leaving us to settle in. (I had planned to do a lot of recreational activities - as it happens - I did not want to leave the villa).
We ordered the 3 course dinner for the first night and the Gourmet BBQ for the second night. The meals did not disappoint in terms of value and flavour. The delicious meals were abundant, but certainly did not go to waste.
Watching the sun set on the deck was beautiful. Being June, it was a little chilly outside, however an ideal 25ᵒC inside where we could relax on a very comfortable lounge and still take in all of the natural beauty of the River Murray. Although temperatures dropped below 0ᵒC, I still enjoyed an early morning swim in the heated pool (which was wonderful with the steam rising off the water). The swim was followed by a soak in the very warm spa, then more relaxing.
We would say, The Frames villas are the best facility that we have ever stayed in. We have no hesitation in recommending the retreat, and we cannot wait to book in a longer stay.
We would like to mention Cathy who was so helpful and easy to work with in booking the accommodation, and Rick who was wonderful (and a good laugh) for ensuring our comfort. Overall, Cathy and Rick had a remarkable and un-intrusive style of hosting our experience. They have built a very unique facility that accommodates to all of the needs, of those who want to relax in luxury.
Well done and thank you so very much. Cannot wait to see you soon!
