We spent only 24 hours away from our kids on this getaway yet returned feeling refreshed, relaxed and incredibly happy. I suggest booking a package that includes dinner at the restaurant and massage/facials

Great place for a lunch - atmosphere, food, wine, service - what more could you ask for. Went for my wife's birthday and she wanted to have the a la carte combined with items on the "Sunday Special" menu. No problem. In fact nothing was a problem with any of the staff. Would not hesitate to go again!

We were extremely pleased with our stay at Bells. The food was first class in the restaurant, and the night we had room service we were blown away when the chef and waiter arrived together to set out and explain the meal, which was excellent. The lakeside suites are very spacious, with plenty of storage, great big bathroom and all... More

Gorgeous tucked away spot in Killcare. Stayed 2 nights for a weekend which included breakfast for a family wedding. Not cheap by any means, but a beautiful spoil in the cottage we had near the lake. The cottages are all different and beautifully done. Lovely fires that heated perfectly and a verandah to sit out on. Set amongst bush so... More

We understand that Bells are “trying” to achieve a luxury escape close to Sydney surrounded by beaches. Unfortunately, apart from the restaurant, they truly fall short. Lack of service and generosity: We have no objections in paying high tariffs…however if Bells are going to charge 5-star prices, they need to deliver a special experience, and the experience at Bells was...

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!
