Great little spot on the south coast. We stayed 2 nights and had a lovely time. The activities were great fun although the tennis court could use a little maintenance. The local wildlife was amazing. The room was lovely and the staff was more than helpful.

We loved our stay here. The grounds are huge, set on beautiful bushland with walks, archery, table tennis, pool and spa etc - lots to do! Herbert and Elizabeth were wonderful, friendly hosts. It was only a short drive to beaches and around 10 mins out of the main centre of Batemans Bay. We will definitely stay here again next... More

First of all do not book a standard room! It is one of the smallest rooms I have ever seen. It literally had just enough room for a bed and nothing else. I arrived and was shown around by the male owner. I will admit it is a very peaceful place, quiet and away from the main part of town.... More

A total mis-presentation! First: This room is advertised as a small Standard Room to be occupied by only 1 person. The room is very popular for single people and is actually more often booked than our Executive Spa suite! Second: Andy did not tell me (male owner) that he wanted his fiancee in this room. Third: He may have introduced... More

Lovely place to stay to feel like your away from everything while being a 10minute drive from the bay, beaches and town. Elizabeth and Herbert were very welcoming and made it feel like a second home. Loved the archery, tennis and table tennis! The clay wrap and massages were exactly what we needed!! We chose a romance package and enjoyed... More

This hotel is recommended for those who want to take some time for some bushwalking or to sit around and enjoy nature. This is an ok hotel if you want to just spend the night since the basic room that we stayed in was very small and old, although it was clean. The price we paid for the room was... More

The Chalet Swisse Spa had very warm and welcoming staff, the serves and facilities was exactly what we wanted. The room and chalet itself had a very authentic Swiss feel to it. We definitely plan on visiting again. What was a spontaneous couple’s weekend away has become one of my best holiday memories.

We arrived at the Swiss chalet, after one hotel,lost our booking. The room was clean, and the bed comfortable. The only problem if you can call it that was the noisy animals that woke us at 5am, the birds were bpvery happy and let us know it! Ha ha, it was lovely and I wish we would have stayed longer...

Noisy Neighbors? Hi Morag, Thanks for the nice review but I still can't figure out why you say the call of magpies is too noisy ? Anyway, when you come next time I will give you a room overlooking the ocean, on the first floor. Kind regards, Herbert. More

Very relaxing and quite scenic in itself. Room was air conditioned which was a necessity given that we visited in December and a nice big bed also. Quirky in a way and very hard to describe in great detail but I'd certainly recommend.

When we looked for a place to stay for a few nights near Batemans Bay we weren't looking for anything special - but what we got certainly was. The Chalet Swisse Spa wasn't just a place to rest. It had a depth of character to it that only time and care can make, and it made us feel comfortable and... More
