We have been to TLH on two occasions. We absolutely love the place. Friendly staff, great facilities and delicious food. We are coming again in October and we are all really looking forward to that. I fully recommend TLH to anyone. Can’t wait to see you all again.

We have enjoyed our bowling competitions at TLH Leisure Resort. We have stopped in both the TLH Derwent and TLH Toorak Hotels and both are good value for money. The food is excellent and the bowling competitions are well organised. We hope to return very soon.
