From the moment we arrived, up the lush garden path, to enter to room fire already lit we were impressed. Fresh eggs bread mushrooms bacon. New Candles every night. Beautiful surrounds. Host is amazingly helpful. would go back in an instant. Enjoyed ourselves so much we took the Monday off work and stayed another night

We had a lovely night there . The hosts were very accomodating and the place spotless . The log fire was really romantic . The home baked bread left outside the front door first thing in the morning showed the attention to detail only the best bed and breakfasts have . Definable number 1 and great value for money Alan...

We were welcomed to freshly baked bread, a lit fire place and an amazing spa bath! We stayed in the ever... More

I found this cottage while trawling through 50 odd places to stay in Blue Mountains with the intention of proposing to my now fiancee. This was it- perfect in the autumn, you can stroll through the garden with your SO as well and enjoy the natural surroundings. Seenuan, the owner, was more than hospitable providing fresh homemade bread, home made... More

We spent two nights at Secrets and I really wish it could have been longer. Set in stunning grounds are three self-contained suites. Upon arrival we were greeted by Seenuan. She is absolutely delightful and could not have been more welcoming. We were staying in the Maid’s Suite and Seenuan guided us there, explaining the facilities and amenities available. Nothing...

The accommodation was delightful, and the owner See (Seenuan) was so helpful and generous; she provided home-laid eggs and home-baked bread, local bacon and sausages etc. The 1920s environment was part real, part faux period, but very cosy with a wood-burning stove, very comfortable Queen bed and a large spa bath, which we'd never tried before but was fantastic after...

We stayed in the Loft suite. We were greeted by the owner and made feel so welcome. We were shown to our suite and on opening the door you could smell the freshly baked bread. There was a great breakfast supply from fresh eggs, mushrooms, tomatoes, fruit, cereals and yoghurt. Nothing was too much trouble. The room was very well... More

Stayed in the chauffeur's room with hubby for a two night stay. This is the only king bed room. Our friends stayed in the maid's room with a queen bed. There are three rooms total. Andre was very sociable when he was around, never saw his wife. Enjoyed having a kitchenette with breakfast accommodations, but the rooms did seem in... More

Secrets is such a gorgeous place to stay. Very old-worldy, quiet and peaceful. You receive a lovely welcome upon arrival, personally shown to your suite where you are shown your cache of fresh made bread and eggs from the property's own chooks. Beautiful rooms, large baths, decently appointed kitchenettes, bath robes and fire places - what more could you want!!... More

Had 2 nights in the Maids suite but looked at all 3 and would be happy to stay in them all. The new owners are such lovely people and are working hard to keep the standards high. This is not a place for people that want a modern hotel room- it has lace curtains and gold taps! It is old... More
