Great food, been eating there for many years due to the excellent quality, views and locale. The food is standard hearty Polish, lovely menu and extensive vodka selection which is nice to sample. The food portions are great. We return often, however we have always found the service to be quite abysmal . We waited 2 hours to receive our... More

Stayed here at Easter. The chalets are beautiful but barely surface-clean. There was a hole in the kitchen floor! Had to clean out the grill before using it and the bathroom corners contained fluff. The lorikeets were a delight and you don't have to feed them if you don't want them all over the veranda. The bed was queen-size and... More

Myself and my husband stayed at Polish place for our one year anniversary and it was such a great experience we return every year on our anniversary. The owner/ staff went out of their way to accommodate us and we found their friendly banter a refreshing contrast to other hotel staff we've encountered at other places. A minor hiccup occurred,...

I have just returned from a four night stay at the Polish Place and it was again simply wonderful. Seeing kookaburras in suburbia these days is a rare treat, so seeing and hearing them every day was a highlight for me. The owners, Phil and Ania Sowter clearly love this environment and also provide food for the many visiting parrots,... More

A great place to unwind with a great view and accommodations. The owners have found that magical place where they are helpful and friendly without being intrusive. Just relax and enjoy the view, with the bar and restaurant next door. Upstairs shower lacks water pressure & volume. Fantastic bed and kitchen facilities. Laundry machine in the unit is very convenient,... More

There is no doubt that the view is stunning but this place badly needs a make over and a good clean. Reception on arrival was cool, the breakfast hamper disappointing, road traffic noise constant through the night, and furry, nocturnal visitors distressing. To the hosts' credit I got a full refund but it ruined my long weekend as everything else... More

Dear Madam, Naturally we are disappointed that your experience with us did not go well but for the record we do take great pride in the quality and consistency of our product. The price you paid was based on two people with breakfast included and complimentary picnic basket. In our breakfast basket you had 4 eggs, bacon ( wood smoked... More

Chalets are beautiful, wonderful ambience , fantastic view, great hosts. This part of the review is not to be negative , having stayed at many cottages in Tasmania , some of their ideas would be great to implement to polish chalets , which I think they are lacking quite a lot . Breakfast basket very basic, I was disappointed ,... More

This is a lovely place to stay, very quiet, we stayed in the middle Chalet. Great view to wake up to in the morning. We ordered room service, the food was very typically Polish and nice. Everything was there that you need, dishwasher, microwave, hotplate, fridge. Although some of the chattels could do with replacing they are very dated. It... More
