The special attention to detail and the extra luxuries like the bathroom aromatherapy products, chocolates, breaky basket, croissants and more , were just what we needed to completely unwind for our 2 night stay. Totally recommend and will hopefully be able to return sometime soon. We didnt really venture out. So good , we stayed put. Such a wonderful stay!

Thanks Fiona for your wonderful review. We're delighted that you didn't feel the need to venture out and just enjoyed the rainforest setting, next time you visit you must explore the restaurants and experiences just minutes away. Or not, of course! Looking forward to welcoming you back again soon. Best wishes, Mark and Joanne. More

I was given this very generous birthday gift from my work team. I booked another night to celebrate my husbands birthday as well. Jenny (host) booked us a table at a local restaurant which also provided a courtesy bus, where we enjoyed a lovely meal and even birthday cake! The cabins are private and exceptionally quiet, with many home style... More

We booked Narrows Escape to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary in December and were very excited to find it exactly as described. We were blown away with all the little luxuries and the room was comfortable in every way. I went for a walk each morning and a great way to start the day with the daily breakfast hamper and...

We only stayed but we had the most memorable time. Our cabin was beautiful - private, well-appointed, lovely furnishings, spacious...the list goes on. It literally has everything you need. The large salt water pool was a delight to swim in. I would thoroughly recommend this place to stay in with your partner, if you want to reconnect in gorgeous surroundings.... More

We stayed between Christmas and New year. The setting is fabulous, so quiet and peaceful, the birds are amazing to listen to and watch. The breakfast hamper, daily croissants and cheese hamper were a lovely touch. The hosts were very informative and welcoming. All in all a excellent stay.

We had the most relaxing time here at Narrows, we loved everything about our stay and would highly recommend. The brekkie hamper, hot croissants every morning, coffee, the cabin itself....we honestly did not want to leave. Hosts were very informative and friendly.

I was looking for a romantic weekend away to propose to my partner and I chose this place because of its romantic look. This accommodation certainly did live up to the photos. It provided the perfect setting for a romantic weekend; secluded, quite, connection with nature, minimal phone reception and stunning facilities. I think if you're looking to escape from... More

We stayed here for our wedding night and I cannot recommend this place more highly!! It was fantastic. The staff went out of their way to make it a very special night for us and were even able to accommodate some really specific requests my husband asked for e.g for the path to be lit when we arrived at midnight...
