Terrace Downs Resort
  • Our terrace villa was lovely to stay in.we took our own breakfast things and had a great dinner in the restaurant - tried the thar and the hare - both delicious and staff service was helpful and attentive until we had ordered, however they did not come back to refill our water classes (i would have liked a carafe on the table if they could not check us regulary) the salad bar and dessert buffet were pathetic. The daughters and i had a hilarious "spa" in the bath with our togs on - i agree with other reviews that a proper hot tub would be great - we had taken our togs expecting one to be there. (a pity the boys couldn't fit in as well!!) the golf was average considering the frozen conditions but enjoyable all the same. Would go back again but for a longer stay as one night was a bit rushed. But i do recommend to ring and check to see what was available before you arrive as it's a long way to find food if a wedding takes priority over other guests and i was disappointed that the archery was unavailable and us girls had nothing to do at the resort while the golfers played - so we went for a trip out to mt sunday (awesome views!). 5

  • Absolutely lovely place to stay but there was a wedding & we were not informed that the whole place was booked out - so therefore couldn't eat there! also could not check in til 4.30 as villa not ready & we arrived @ 3pm - got told to go to the kirwee pub to wait! miles away so we waited outside in the freezing cold drinking our own wine - not anything from terrace downs except sorry! probably won't go back v poor customer service - the wedding took all priority & we felt like we were just a nuisance!!! by the way they had emailed me to remind me about my booking a week prior with absolutely no mention of the fact that we would not be able to eat there & food elsewhere is miles away - poor poor organisation form thier end. . 1

  • The venue is awesome, acommodation is great - always very clean, beds very comfortable for us, feather pillows etc, and if you take some simple food to this fully appointed kitchen and just dine in the comfort of your own awesome apartment with the view,spa bath etc..you will not be disappointed. On the rare occasions we've had to rely on the service wev'e had some hilariously entertaining experiences this time in Tilleys but this time they compensated us heavily and we felt they're learning who its about....there seems to be a staff training / satisfaction issue. Avoca Fine Dining has been replaced by a steak house, although pricey had wild Thar (delicious)and Hare on the menu.. our waitress was lovely, the salad bar was sadly lacking and boring with 3 options. We absolutely love the aprtments but still wary of the service in other areas. 5

  • Terrace Downs is just idyllic, what ever time of year you go :) The horse riding was fantastic, something my littlies could do (not alot there for kids otherwise). I feel it could benefit from a pool and hot spa looking out on the mountains. The food from the restaurant was great. Good service but internet was down when we stayed. From prev stays there, it is usually up and running no problem. Can't recommend it enough :) 5

  • Fantastic accomodation, the villas are awesome. We were looking forward to trying the new grill pizza bar and was disappointed the grill was not open, it had major cracks through the pizza oven, doesnt look like there is any hurry to fix it. Having stayed before we took our own food as the other restaurants are pretty disappointing, average food that is overpriced and confused. 5
