The Chalet is a lovely place to stay, being a cross between a guesthouse, B&B and art gallery. Built in 1892 and added onto since by several owners, it is different, quirky and has character. It is "olde world" Blue Mtns style accommodation. We stayed three nights and enjoyed ourselves. Meals & breakfasts are well priced and the restaurant draws... More

Being not terribly interested in the Arts most of the decor was lost on me. I found it to be depressingly like staying at my Grandmothers house back in the 1960's. All kitschy and too many dust collectors around making the place look untidy. We were looking for romance and instead got drab. Disappointing and David was terribly bad mannered... More

Dear Phil, I am very sorry to hear how much you did not enjoy your stay. We do try to let people know of the art collection with the photographs shown on our websites and booking sites along with the description that it is a private art gallery. I understand this is not to everybody's tastes, but as you can... More

Easy location, but certainly a peace of mind. The cozy but spacious dining room near the fireside and alot of arts and sculptures collected from around the world are adorable.The rooms are decorated with beautiful arts all over added a meaning of life and togetherness. Me and Bini (my wife) really had a memorable stay

David took the time to share with us his beautiful art collection as my husband has a few lovely pieces. He was most helpful in heating up our take away (and washing up after us, thanks David). Our room was a delight, tastefully decorated, a real home away from home. Our inclusive continental breakfast was adequate as we are only... More

Absolutely loved staying here. Spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated, The Chalet was a delight and so romantic. Surrounded by art on every space of wall, antiques from a bygone era, the dining area, lounges, our room and hosts were wonderful. Wished we could have stayed longer, our ensuite again so clean and gleaming had a love brass footed bath which was... More

We only stayed for one night but the charm of the historic house with walls covered in art of all tastes made us feel comfortable and relaxed. The owners were very accommodating, yet did not hover or crowd you. The room was clean and beautifully decorated, the bed very comfortable with extra blankets to snuggle under. In the bathroom was...

This was a last minute decision to sat here and we weren't disappointed. Although it was only for one night, David was an excellent host, with nothing a problem. We had a family, which was very clean and comfortable. Dinner was delicious, a good variety is offered and between us we had most of the menu - all good. We... More

What do you do when your house is no longer big enough to contain your artwork collection? You open a seven room guest house that also serves as an art gallery. We happened upon the Chalet when up in Leura for a couple of days and it was wonderful. Our host David was very friendly and helpful. The rooms range... More
