Cottages were very nice, large living area and bathroom, complimentary cereal and toast in the room for breakfast. We had a spa bath that was huge and fantastic, good water pressure. Nice, quiet location near a few restaurants and cafes. The gardens are lush and beautiful and make it feel like you're the only one there, couldn't hear a peep... More

Stayed here with my husband and daughter. We were all extremely happy with our room. It was clean and located in a nice quiet area. The continental breakfast provided was much more than most guests would require. I am not sure if it was just the night we stayed but the car park and first section of the path to... More

Not clean, not luxury and over priced. I did not like looking out to a concrete walled courtyard and the bed was uncomfortable. The bathroom was a let down as shower over spa ( small bath compared to other establishments ). Agree with Ishka poster re quality is perceived by the customer. TV was the size of a postage stamp...

Mr David S, Thank you for your review. Being aware of your personal connection to Ishkaa, the previous contributor, I feel your support of her review is not unusual. It is interesting that you marital status is not mentioned in your review of Eden House Retreat. It can however, be ascertained from the shared name and specific reasons for holidaying... More

The old saying of quality is not what is claimed by the provider but what is perceived by the customer stands up in this establishment. They advertised the room as a luxury villa with 2 person spa bath with kitchenette. We arrived 6pm first night with our keys in an envelope outside reception area. We found our villa which was...

At Eden House Retreat welcome and value guest feedback. We consider feedback offered and make appropriate changes if required........ There is another familiar saying; "don't believe everything you read". Sadly, I feel the attached review is an example of how anonymity and lack of accountability can be misused. My name is Siobhan Boyd, manager of Eden House Retreat. I am... More

Eden house was unexpectedly lovely. Beautiful Spa room. King bed with great linen and great mattress made for a great sleep. The room was appointed well. The continental breakfast was generous but basic. We managed to get in a massage treatment after travelling, pleasant and relaxing setting the mode for the stay. We will diffidently return. for an extended stay.

Perfect location to tour Atherton Tablelands. Lovely room, with lots of nice touches to make you feel at home. Loved the jacuzzi! Sadly the restaurant was closed on the days when we stayed. Local area is great for walks and wildlife. Peterson creek walk was amazing

Had a great weekend, very impressed from the beginning, arrived at 2 o'clock from a long drive, even though the kitchen closed at 2 they kept it open for us for lunch which we ordered a chicken Caesar salad and Thai beef salad, both were yum and well priced. We hired a spa villa which was very private, great size... More

Perfect place to stay when you want to get away from the rat race. Lovely rooms with nice touches like breakfast baskets and port. Recommend you have a massage to relax you then just sit back and enjoy the ambience of the place set in a beautiful village. Restaurant worth a look too.
