The hotel is in a lovely location and I found it easy to get around the area to do a couple of walks and some sightseeing. The negatives for me were: - breakfast. I paid $28 dollars for what was supposed to be an 'early bird' price, but this is the same price as advertised in the room. Not sure... More

My husband and I were part of a party of eight who had booked for the Christmas in July dinner. For the price of $90.00 per head and a drink bill of $75.00 per couple it certainly wasn't value for money. The food was less than acceptable, being a buffet which offered very little selection of food that in two... More

This my second stay at the resort and I was highly disappointed this time. When I arrived there was no parking and I had to park in paid parking on the street when I was advised there was free parking in the resort complex. I booked to eat at both Darleys and Echoes over the two nights and the first... More

Lilianfels is very well located near the Three Sisters and has great staff and facilities. The restaurant Darleys is very good and has a very good local wine list Not cheap but well worth the price and very comfortable

We found this hotel to be nice but very average and not worth the money. The hotel was fully booked and there is only a limited amount of free parking. They charged $15 for valet parking. The decor is dated which works in nice with the feel of the hotel however the amenities and rooms are very basic with nothing... More

Me and my husband stayed at Lilianfels for 2 nights. I booked the winter package, but as soon as I checked in I didn't liked our view so I ask for an upgrade if they have available. One of the front line staff showed us a deluxe valley view and it's worth it. But we stayed on level 1 so... More

I spent three nights here recently running a workshop for our employees. Apart from the beauty of the building and quality of the food, staff were excellent in helping out with any request. I'd like to come back with my wife and spend a week here.
