Great setting atop the beautiful Mt Tamborine. Within walking distance to some excellent wineries and restaurants. The accommodation sets the scene for a romantic getaway or just a chance to unwind. Lovely staff!

We recently moved to the Gold Coast and decided to celebrate my wife's birthday at Mount Tamborine. We had no idea about suitable lodgings and surfed the web hoping to find a good place to stay . Well, I can now say that sometimes pictures do tell the truth because staying at the Escarpment Retreat is truly a beautiful experience... More

I can speak very highly of everything single aspect of Escapment Retreat, from the staff and friendly service, the services they offer, the room and atmosphere, the views!! We are new parents with a 10month old and it was the first time leaving her with the grandparents... We were staying away for our anniversary and really needed some R&R, but... More

Second visit to this retreat and it was as good as the first time. Quiet and peaceful would be a good description with extermly good accommodation and very friendly staff. We stayed for three nights this time and this was just right. Check for Seniors deals when available as they can be very rewarding.

Absolutely fantastic. Only down side is that we didn't stay long enough to really take advantage of all The Escarpements facilities (2 nights). Also loved the fact that we were a short walk from the St Bernard Hotel where we had a wonderful meal. Will definitely be back for a much longer stay.

Peter and Tessa are wonderful - they gave our stay that personal touch and no effort was spared. Really interesting couple who are an asset to The Escarpment! My only negative is that the rooms are a bit dark - some color needed. Great breakfast and good coffee. We will be back!

We stayed there for our daughters wedding and had our two daughters and grand daughter with us. We had a fantastic visit and the photots taken from the huse were just magnificent. We found it to be very quiet and serene, even with our Grand Daughter, and the views went on forever.
