Booked 3 nights to celebrate my wife's birthday. The weather was not good (foggy and damp), but the resort is excellent. Great location. Great restaurants. Darley's is worth the experience. The staff are friendly and helpful. Met at our car and baggage taken to our room. Excellent martinis in the Lounge. Lovely indoor heated pool and massages at the day... More

The resort overall is very impressive. Very tastefully renovated the hotel boasts the Victorian grandeur of a bygone era. A great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of Sydney life and spend time talking leisurely walks to the the three sisters or echo point or simply laying around in the laws reading or enjoying their sumptuous high...

Many years ago when I was studying for my travel degree I saw Lilianfels featured on a travel show. I added it to my bucket list! Finally this year I visited. BEST experience from check in to check out! The valet parking took care of the small parking lot which left us carefree. The rooms were very nicely decorated, I... More

My wife and I have stayed in this Hotel a number of years ago and enjoyed it so much we decided to revisit, this turned out to be a very bad decision. This rated as one of our worst restaurant experiences ever! We ordered an entree of chicken wings to share they arrived obviously re heated from a previous day,... More

We got an amazing winter deal when we stayed last week. There were so many positives but it is not what it was when I stayed there many years ago. Lounge staff are slow and not very attentive. Food very overpriced in main hotel for what it was but Echoes was better food. Rooms were large, but a bit noisy.... More

Had a wonderful stay in Lilianfels last weekend. The nicest hotel we have been in in Australia or New Zealand and we have lived and travelled extensively in both. It reminded us of the finest five star paradores in Spain. Many thanks again Ralf and all staff, Barrie, Caitriona and Charlie Wharton

The location and my general overall stay was excellent, the rooms were large and spacious compared to city hotels. Service on the front desk was exceptional when i called down to ask questions or request more towels. However there was one wait staff that stood out from all the rest, by the name of Jack. He is an incredible young... More

Undoubtedly the best thing (perhaps the only thing) about this hotel is it's location.Throughout our stay at this supposedly 5 star establishment, with an exhorbitant five star tariff, we endured, firstly, a sleepless night when we were installed above the car-park entrance where cars were revving up the driveway most of the night. Then when we were moved, another disturbed... More

This place is beautifully situated and is classy, but lacks that something extra that one would expect at this level. We are well travelled and can't help comparing it to similar places we have stayed at in the US and UK. The manager would do himself a favour to stay at some of these top rated tripadvisor places, say in... More
