Needed some RnR and have chosen the Ecarpment as the photos of their room/villa look quite unique and relaxing compare to the modern hotel/apartment rooms. As I've arrived, I was warmly greeted by Pete at the front counter who have explained what is available on site as well as things to do around Mount Tamborine. I was then offered the... More

My partner and I booked in for two romantic nights at the Escarpment Retreat and were not disappointed. From arrival we had fantastic service being greeted at reception with a smile and two glasses of champagne. The accommodation itself is gorgeous - fantastic bathroom and bed and the fireplace is perfect for those cold nights. There are lots of activities... More

We 8 friends booked a villa at The Escarpment. We found we made an absolutely correct choice. We have a perfect getaway here. The resort is located in the botanical garden at Mountain Tamborine. It is 30 minutes’ drive from Golden Coast, and about 1 hour drive from Brisbane. We were granted a warm welcome, a glass of champagne and... More

We were stay in the beautiful cottage with couple of friends; it is the best experience to take a short holiday over there. At the counter, we were warming welcomed by friendly staff, and then we head to the 3 bedrooms cottage. We were surprised find fire wood was supplied, in the cold winter days, it is the best extra...

I organsied a ladies trip to Mount Tambourine and we decided to stay at the Escarpment using both the House and Villa accommodation. The Manager's at the Escarpment are absolutely wonderful. Nothing was too much trouble - breakfast, extra coffee cups, taxis, massages, everything was perfectly organised for us. The venue is gorgeous - the house being perfect for a... More

My wife and I recently stayed here for our honeymoon, what a fantastic location. With a warm welcome and a glass of champagne it was the perfect start to our holiday. All staff were polite and courteous. Walking around the grounds and the deck view down to the Gold Coast are little treasures within the complex. We also loved the... More

My sister was married at Mt Tamborine last weekend and as her Maid of Honour, it was my duty to assist with finding the location for the bridal party to get ready, that could also double as the honeymoon suite. Having stayed at the Escarpment previously, I had no hesitation recommending one of their villas. I knew the room would... More

My husband booked Escarpment as a treat for my birthday. He did his research on this very website and read all of the spectacular reviews. Unfortunately for me, and more importantly in comparison to the money paid for our two night stay, Escarpment fell slightly short of our expectations. Don’t get me wrong, Escarpment is set in beautiful grounds, very... More

We came to The Escarpment to rest and recuperate and it was the perfect place to do just that. We read books, went for quiet walks and enjoyed lying on the deck overlooking the escarpment. The breakfasts are delicious, the rooms beautifully furnished and the beds are comfortable with beautiful linen. Our villa had a beautiful double spa bath and... More
