Only got to spend 1 night here and it was utterly fabulous. 1st off we got upgraded to their suite and it was just perfect. Jon was a lovely host and Jackie the housekeeper makes a great breakfast. Definitely coming back for 3 nights to celebrate my 50th. Suite was very roomy and decorated tastefully for the romantic in me.

This is the second time I've stayed at Arabella, and the experience has been great on both occasions. It's very quiet despite being on a main road, and wonderfully decorated and furnished. The common areas are comfortable and make for very interesting browsing. My room was Tallowood, a new room built on the side of the hill, with a lovely... More

Early check-in. We stayed in the Palm room, and although next to car parking, and located on busy road, completely soundproof. Exceptionally clean and comfortable. Large bathroom with generous supplies. Help yourself to plunger coffee, large choice of teas, cookies & fruit. This place is very beautiful with lots of things we didn't have time to use, such as the... More

I have stayed at Arabella's multiple times over the past few years, and it is still wonderful. Each visit has been for a different reason and the welcome, quality of the accommodation and little touches keep getting better.

Lovely outlook, beautifully appointed and very clean. The owners have great taste and the decor is superb - French provincial style (no chintz). We stayed in "Tallowood" a self contained area downstairs with its own entry and felt very secluded. The view is lovely and the verandah is great for lounging. Lovely continental breakfast served in the main house. The... More

I can't say enough nice things about Arabella. Our room was immaculate. The bed, linens, and pillows were super comfortable. We had a great night sleep - it was so quiet and peaceful. The common areas are wonderful - indoor seating, outdoor seating - everything is thought out really well and it all gels into a great stay. Top it... More

Loved this place, we not only had our toddler stay but our little dog also. We had a lovely room down stairs.it was quiet and welcoming. The furniture and layout was beautiful and felt homely. The food in the morning was amazing and we had two kitchens to choose from when we cooked our dinner. I would stay here again.

We stayed in the Teatree suite which has a large bathroom including a spa bath (which we did not want or use). However, the bedroom is quite small, smaller than one would expect at this price. There is a great balcony with views over the treetops towards the sea. The bed is comfortable, but the wi-fi leaves a lot to... More
