We took relatives visiting from abroad to stay at Bells at Killcare as we'd heard so much about the place. Granted, the property is beautiful but I was a disappointed with the experience. Whilst the room was beautifully appointed, our bedding was very musty which I found quite unpleasant. Dining at the restaurant was also an extremely poor experience (service... More

Gorgeous accommodation, which is spacious, beautifully decorated and cosy. Living area makes it easy to relax and the bathroom is amazingly spacious and well appointed. Breakfast buffet was to die for, amazing croissants and lots of options! Would highly recommend.

Really enjoyed our stay at Bells. Quality of the accommodation was very good, service was excellent and the food (particularly breakfast) was exceptional. We weren't that enamoured with the Central Coast per se (although as we visited out of season that may be a little unfair), but Bells itself was lovely. I really want to stress just how good the...

This is one place that has never let me down. Always came away super impressed. The thought that goes into small little things, the absolutely high standard of service, the warm and comfortable ambience and last but not the least - the food! And I am a vegetarian - yet the food that I get there each time is just... More

We recently stayed just one night (our anniversary) and purchased the Escape package. This entitled us to the 5 course Degustation menu for Dinner anf full breakfast. The accommodation was great, a fantastic king size bed, two person spa and slow combustion fire were the highlights. Dinner at Manfredi's was truly exquisite with the food and service worthy of it's... More

Bells accommodation is great. Staff are good and the rooms are well cared for. The bed we had was enormous. However, the same thing cannot be said about the restaurant associated with the hotel. We have now tried it twice and have not really been happy either time. Thinking the first time may have been an exception we tried it... More

What a shame you did not experience all that is fabulous about Manfredi at Bells. We pride ourselves on excellent service and an outstanding food and wine offering, with Stefano Manfredi writing and producing the menus and dining experience. Please let us know when you are in next time and we will make sure you find something on the menu... More

A stay at Bells will make you feel like landed gentry. That said, if you're not the type to sit back and enjoy the scenery, you might find it all very boring. I came to Bells to attend a conference there. The grounds are truly stunning, like something out of a movie, with buildings that are both elegant and inviting.... More

Thank you for your feedback. I'm glad your conference went well & you loved our property. It's a shame you didn't get to use your cottage fireplace or reverse cycle air conditioner. These are in every room type. Killcare and surrounds offer plenty of activities such as stunning coastal bushwalks with view back to Sydney. The walks also showcase some... More

I was lucky enough to win an overnight stay so was very excited to try out this luxury hotel. We arrived late on Friday afternoon our room was lovely but freezing - would have been a nice touch to have the heating on.

Dear Kerri, Thank you for your feedback. It's a shame your expectations were not met. We are very disappointed and have addressed the correct department of your feedback. Our cottages and suites all have Espresso di Manfredi coffee that is freshly ground and stored in lovely sealed jars. These are not old. Our staff are professionally trained and often receive...
