We had the most wonderful long weekend at Secret Valley Escape. The cottages were nicely decorated, the view was amazing and we made good use of the hot tub even in the death of Winter. We enjoyed it so much we didn't leave the properly for 4 days. The breakfast basket was great and we had fun attempting the bread... More

Had a fantastic weekend here - no dramas at all. Be prepared with the helpful navigation instructions and you will find this property with ease. The cottage was very neat, clean and well equipped with thoughtful candles, cooking items (even those extras i.e. aluminium foil, paper towel, olive oil), mosquito repellents and extra towels for the jacuzzi. Bring along food... More

My partner and I needed a weekend away and this delivered. The new property manager is a character and very friendly, the alpacas also. Spending a few hours relaxing in the hot tub with the sounds of the bush is my kind of relaxation and the home made bread for breakfast was great. We will be returning in winter to... More

If you're are looking for a place to relax and can do without all the creature comforts of a five star hotel.... this is the place. The location is private, peaceful and scenic. Our cabin had views of the mountain ridge where you can just make out the houses of Mount Victoria village, which seem to teeter on the edge.... More

What a fantastic place to escape inner city living. After a nice drive from Sydney arriving at Secret Valley Escape mid arfternoon, we were greeted by staff and was informed our spa cottage was waiting for us. As the kangaroos came out to graze we were enjoying the tranquility of the valleys on our private balcony in the spa. We... More

My wife and I have very little opportunity to get away together and it had been over 18 months since we had some alone time. This was just what the doctor ordered being a true escape especially with no TV (but DVDs if you want to watch them). If you just want to escape from the hussle and bussle, sit... More

First off I have to say that this place meets the pure definition of a getaway. On getting there the road on my GPS went from 'unnamed' to no road at all. The arrow was travelling over a green screen and I knew were weren't in Kansas anymore. The last lot of roads getting there are unsealed, but in good... More

My husband popped the question in the spa whilst on a romantic weekend here in 2009.. we decided to come back this year for a celebration of sorts and were TERRIBLY disappointed. Whilst the setting is lovely in it's seclusion with a lovely jacuzzi.. i found the owner to be dismissive of delivering a poor breakfast weekend basket of only... More

Just booked a one night stay!. The property was good but lacked charisma. Highlights are Spa, Spa and Spa. Its best ever Spa and temperature is maintained at 38.5 which is awesome. Location is good but the maintenance is not that good. For the price of $330 per night with out breakfast, its definitely expensive. It got a funny 19inch... More

We booked a weekend Secret Valley Escape for a luxurious winter-mountain-retreat-with-fireplace experience away from the tourist crowds that clog a lot of the more well-visited places in the Blue Mountains these days. We definitely enjoyed ourselves. The cottages were located in the middle of a huge area of remote woodland that we did a couple of very nice walks over,... More
