Stayed at Tree Tops with my partner and really enjoyed the surroundings. The inside of the cabin was modern and clean. However - the communication with the staff was non-existent. We were never given a check out time in all 4 modes of communication (not on the website, not in the emails, not face to face, and not posted anywhere... More

We could take it or leave it. Not what I would call value for money. It was nice, but not fantastic. Especially for the price tag. I think there are better value places elsewhere, but I guess it's up to people's individual tastes.

Stayed here recently and the place was just beautiful. It was a 3 bedroom with large living area, outdoor spa and sauna. We enjoyed using the facilities like the tennis court, spa and sauna. Wish the gold course was more maintained, very hard to play with no green. Apparently the jets in the spa kept up some of the people... More

We stayed this second time in Black bean whereas previously we were in Kookaburra. Again we booked it through ravensbournescapse as others have done. The houses are in a great location and well kept. It is easy to find (I'm not sure why other have had difficulties) and they are well furnished. We preferred Kookaburra to Black bean as it... More

My partner and I have recently returned from a night at Tree Tops Cottage at Sketches Resort, which we booked directly through Ravensbourne Escapes.com. Sketches Resort was easy to find, being located directly on the Esk-Hampton main road. It is in an idyllic location, nestled at the top of the mountains, and a short drive from both Ravensbourne and Crows... More

The cottage was just as described on the "Ravensbourne Escape" website. Very cosy and immaculately clean. The hot tub was great - we did not experience the spa jet noise problems described by previous reviewers so they may have rectified that problem. The bed was very comfortable and the cottage was nice and dark in the mornings which allowed for... More

We stayed at Tree Tops which we booked through Ravensbourne Escapes from 30/08/12 to the 1/09/12. The property was extremely hard to locate, directions where not great and the chalet did not have a number or name on it. The Chalet was neat, clean and lovely itself however the first night of staying there we had no hot water (we... More

We just stayed at the Tree Tops Cottage at Skecthes Resort, which we booked through Ravensbourne Escapes.com and it was perfect. Very clean and tidy. We loved the jacuzzi on the deck. It had everything we needed along with a relaxing setting overlooking the native bush whilst the beautiful coloured parrots fed on the season's berries. A perfect romantic weekend... More
