What can I say other than absolutely breath taking and stunning. My partner and I went for a romantic getaway and loved it. We stayed in the dreaming villa and it was beautiful. The service was top of the line which was very pleasing as you never actually see anyone face to face like when you check into a motel.... More

The reality of this place is that it is very nice. Nice location, comfortable accommodation. But it is so far from a $350/night accommodation as to be very disappointing. For example, the first thing you should know is that this is NOT a bed and breakfast. It's a bed and $30 voucher for food to cover two people for two... More

We had two nights here at the Hideaway Spa in early November. It felt like a complete break. It was lovely. The massage therapist Loretta who can come to you was amazing - best massage ever and I've had heaps. The villa was beautiful. Very secluded, and we saw heaps and heaps of birds and wallabies across the valley and... More

We had a great stay in the Spa Studios. The place was clean, secure, and the pool fantastic with great views. Loved the peace and quiet. Some great seating areas outside especially down by the dam. Highly recommend.

We have just returned from staying at Blue Cliffs retreat in the Hideaway villa. Was just perfect! A lovely retreat that allows you to reconnect with nature and each other. The spa was divine with large glass windows that looked out to the beautiful natural surroundings. Such a quiet, peaceful place, listening to the birds and frogs was delightful. The... More

I booked the Dreaming Villa at the last minute. There weren't many places available & I'd seen the poor reviews & was worried about the issues that I would find. Opening the door to the villa, my partner and I were AMAZED! This place is fantastic! The pictures really don't do this villa justice. It's larger inside than what it... More

We have such a high standard of villa and keeping them clean and fresh. We are so please to have the updated comments of guests who couldn't fault the cleaning, loved the 'fantastic' spa bath that looks down to the creek valley. The comment regarding the bathroom door is one we occasionally receive and when we check it out with... More

We booked a last minute, much needed weekend away and decided to treat ourselves at Blue Cliffs... we arrived at night but due to the very precise, easy-to-follow directions emailed to me, we had no trouble finding the retreat and the Dusk Villa. Although the solar lights were very helpful to find the stairs, it would have been nice if... More

What a lovely review. We will take on the helpful suggestions and keep improving the internal and external experience for guests. Spider webs are cleared with every clean, but they can be fast little web creators (certainly faster than the web designers we have used!). We will keep vigilante! What a lovely story of your experience. Thank you. More

If your looking for a place to switch off and hear the beautiful sounds of the country well this is the place you want to be at. From the time we drove into the property we could feel this was going to be amazing. And it was in every way! A very BIG credit to the owners....

Firstly, if you're looking for peace and tranquility, you'll love this place. All you can hear are the birds and the babble of the creek. You're in a valley in the middle of the bush, so if silence bothers you, don't stay here. However, if you're arriving after dark, you'll have no hope of finding the place or your villa.... More
