Derek L TripAdvisor review

From arrival to departure we were very impressed by this resort which is situated in the most magnificent surroundings. The staff were welcoming and professional. The Villa was perfect, easy to access with a covered bay for our car. The restaurant staff, again were welcoming, attentive and clearly making an effort to engage with us. The golf course is well kept and challenging. I did comment on the poor state of hire clubs and was assured that new ones were on order and there would be no charge for the existing ones. All in all a most pleasant short stay. We would certainly return.

Beautiful Setting but Service Shortcomings!

disquemoshe Couples - TripAdvisor review

Spacious rooms and a beautiful property define Fable Terrace Downs Resort, yet limited services raised questions about the 'resort' label. Despite a prompt response to an incident in our room, it highlighted its limitations: nonexistent internet (we couldn't even assess speed as it never worked), a nonfunctional intercom, necessitating a direct call from my smartphone to report the incident to the reception, room cleanliness, limited service in the restaurant and bar, and a very basic breakfast. Overall, it was an experience that fell short of resort expectations.

Hi Disquemoshe Thank you for your review, apologies that the internet was not functioning correctly during your stay with us, this has been investigated and can be slow at times due to our location. Appreciate the feedback on the restaurant operation which has been discussed with the department Manager. All the best

Serene and therapeutic!

michelletippo Couples - TripAdvisor review

The views from the villas were absolutely spectacular. It was a peaceful retreat with a dinner that was a culinary delight. The slightly aged decor could be forgiven as the views from the balcony were so consuming. The beds were comfortable.

Hi Michelletippo Thank you for your review, pleased to read that you had a great stay with us and enjoyed dining with us and the wonderful views of the high country. All the best

All in all a very pleasing weekend stay

Andyroogolf TripAdvisor review

We chose Terrace Downs as a birthday celebration stay for the family, hiring a 3 bed house. The views were out of this world, we were more than happy with the accommodation, beds were enormous. We enjoyed the complimentary continental breakfast and our evening meal was great (very filling seafood chowder) in a warm cosy dining room with good atmosphere and good service. The golf course is brilliant with some of the most outstanding views you could wish for. All in all a very pleasing weekend stay

Hi Andyroogolf Thank you for your review, please to read that you had a great stay with us, and you enjoyed our golf and dining. the views to the mountains at this time of year are quite spectacular. All the best

Large, comfortable villa overlooking the golf course.

Sally A TripAdvisor review

We took advantage of a shoulder season special deal (May) and spent two relaxing nights at Terrace Downs (now part of the Fable group of hotels) The golf course was quite wet, due to recent rain but otherwise in great condition for the time of year. Both the golf course and clubhouse were unusually quiet, but the staff were very welcoming, attentive and efficient. We had two very good dinners and a light lunch in the clubhouse restaurant & made our own breakfasts in our villa (it had a full kitchen)

Hi Sally Thank you for your lovely review, great to read you had a wonderful stay with us and enjoyed our facilities. All the best
