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.

Spent a very relaxing two days in this tranquil place set in a little rainforest corner. From the time we arrived we were made to feel welcome and offered our complimentary glasses of sparkling wine and yummy chocolates. Our host suggested we may want to have these on the side deck overlooking a lovely little creek flowing through the property.... More

It was such a amazing place to stay, we stayed in the 'Edge House' with beautiful view of the Mt Tomborine. Three bed rooms, one master bedroom with a large water massage bath tub, I like it especially with the soft water up the mountain which is good for the skin. Big sitting room, fully equipped open kitchen, big terrace... More

Despite Cyclone Marcia and constant rain, we spent 3 delightful days at Escarpment Retreat and enjoyed every minute. Our hosts, Tess and Peter, couldn't have been more helpful and the accommodation and rainforest surrounds were breathtaking. Thank you for a lovely restful stay, and for three magnificent country breakfasts!

My first trip up to Mt Tambourine and I was surprised with Valentine's couples massages at Escarpment. This place is to die for; slightly hidden in rain forest its hard to believe the craziness of Surfers Paradise is so close by! The staff were very friendly, the massages were amazing and I am just dying to go back and stay... More

Have been to the Escarpement a few times but it appears to be getting a bit tired. Love the fireplace and the large open tub in the bathrooms - it's very well set up for a romantic escape. Unfortunately everything just needs a bit of a freshen.

Such a beautiful views over whole mountain, either sunshine and sunrise. Took my canon camera with me, full in motion of romantic and enjoyable. Holding strong suggestion to be there and away from busy work, totally relaxing. Fell like paradise.
