Enjoyed our three nights stay at Happy Valley Retreat in June 2014. Very relaxing and quite atmosphere, we stayed at end cabin facing forest. Great for romantic escape, clean, specious room with large spa and fireplace. Seen wallabies and different birds just off our cabin veranda while having breakfast. Would not recommend restaurant. Ordered medium steak, they served it overlooked... More

We rented a cabin which was nestled amongst the trees, a complete get away no noise bush views, ducks and rabbits,ahhh The cabin was nice, spa bath for 2 and a place you could spend a few days completely away from it all. The cabin was a little old with tired fittings in the coffee making area but that was... More

We have just returned from 3 nights at the Happy Valley Retreat/Granite Belt Brewery and Restaurant - chosen after a segment we watched on TV. I have read the other reviews before writing this review and agree with most of the comments apart from the Warm Welcome. Unfortunately the receptionist on duty was quite surly, unhelpful and indifferent. This was... More

We spent a few days here to re-charge our batteries, and enjoyed every minute of our stay. The owners and staff were extremely friendly and helpful, and we felt welcomed from the moment we arrived. They pointed out local restaurants and attractions in addition to their own (extremely good) restaurant. The cabin was fairly secluded in the trees, and included... More

Stayed here for the weekend and what an awesome place to be. The cabin was cosy and very clean. The place was close to all the attractions but also secluded enough from all the traffic. The staff were amazing and very welcoming, made us feel like we were part of the place. Have to say a big thank-you to the... More

We dined at the restaurant twice and the food and drinks were delicious. We were in town for a wedding and staying here was the perfect choice, we felt like we had a great holiday... More

We recently got married at Happy Valley and our nights accommodation was part of the package. We had a short golf cart ride to our lovely cabin. We had a nice hot spa that was perfect to unwind after such a long day. The cabin was small and cosy but just what we needed. It was very nice, quiet, clean... More

Hi Nicola, Thank you for your review on our accommodation. I'm really glad you were able to relax after your huge, happy day! At the end of the night, I love to have the spa ready and the candles lit for our exhausted wedding couples. It really is a big day. I hope you both enjoyed your honeymoon, and I... More

Beautiful location. Lovely cosy cabins. Clean and tidy and everything thought of. Close to the local town. The staff were fantastic, very friendly and professional. Highly recommend. There was a wedding there at the weekend and due to the noise which didn't bother us at all the staff were very apologetic and even gave us a free bottle of local... More
