As Stoneridge has only four rooms, all of equal amenity, facilities and views of the Lake, in rare instances a booking of short duration can preclude a booking of multiple nights, whereby a room occupancy cannot be reallocated. In such circumstances, Stoneridge reserve the right to reallocate a room should the above preclude another booking.
Stoneridge does not offer self-catering facilities.
Breakfast is included and other meals can be provided by prior arrangement.
Breakfast is served from 7.30am - 10.00am.
Due to the inherent risks to children on the estate, children under 10 years of age are not catered for unless part of a ‘Lodge Booking.’
- Extra guests: adult $125 + GST, child $75 + GST per night.
Children above the age of 10 are charged full tariff.**
**This fee is applicable when extra guests are confirmed at time of booking. If extra guests are added to a room less than 24 hours prior to arrival, 50% of the room tariff will be charged for each extra guest.
Functions & Events Venue
- Stoneridge does periodically host dinner events at the south west end of the building. Whilst we do not anticipate any disruption to guests' enjoyment of facilities and amenity, as a courtesy we nonetheless wish to make guests aware of these.
- Stoneridge operates a boutique vineyard which requires vineyard work to be undertaken at certain intervals and avoiding direct sunlight. Vineyard work is organised as best possible to minimise any interruption or inconvenience to guests.

- Check in is from 3.00pm and check out is by 10.30am on the day of departure.
