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

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

Room is large with twins bed and overlooking Echo guesthouse. Not sure about the wall paper, I think it is too busy for me. Large bathroom with separate shower but the shower pressure is not good. Breakfast was buffet style with selection of dried bacon and others. Service is not very attentive but okay. General experience is luxurious looking hotel... More

The hotel was disappointing for the room rate charged. Our room was well appointed but had no view and was a little gloomy. Breakfast was very disappointing as room was poorly furnished and no outlook onto the blue mountains. In addition, food on the buffet tables often ran out and was very slow to be replaced.

My husband and I came away for two nights mid-week. We had stayed at Lilianfels before a few years ago and I recall thinking then that it was expensive for what the hotel offered. The best part of the hotel is it's location. The rooms have not been updated for years but are a good size. There was no bath... More

Had a weekend away with girls. Everyone had a wonderful time. Ate at the fabulous in-house restaurant - good food and excellent service. We had high tea which was in keeping with hotel style. Only criticism was the buffet breakfast which was below the quality you would expect of this hotel.
