4 friends and I stayed in the Pine Lodges for 2 nights. We arrived after 5pm, and the key was left as arranged - so easy. The cabin was perfect - everything we needed. Very clean, with lovely linen and towels. Great to relax on the sunny deck, and take a dip in the pool. We didn't have time to... More

We booked into the 'Hideaway' as a base for the 6 Foot Track. The cottage was clean, quiet and warm on what was a cold day. The welcome at reception was good, as was the dip in the pool (just a tad cold)! A really lovely location, with comfy beds and a warm, welcome. Thank you.

Scored big points with the family as the 'Hideaway' exceeded all of our expectations by far. The cottage resort is excellent value and is very attuned to being a part of the Blue Mountains. All the other hotels in the 'Big Blue' can't come close. Cottages surrounded by bush with carrawongs and lyrebirds to be heard nearby. Spacious, comfortable self... More

Hi Ted, thank you for reviewing your stay with us. We are so glad your family enjoyed it here - and although you didn't get to see our lyrebirds you were able hear them.

This is the best family resort in the Blue Mountains, Sydney Australia. We have been coming for many years for family and extended family functions, and we have recommended the Federation Gardens to many of our friends as well. This is a very comfortable, venue and may well be the best kept secret in this beautiful part of regional Sydney,Australia.... More

I recently stayed here for a girls weekend away and was absolutely impressed with the large rooms, generous lounge and kitchen. The grounds were well kept, the pool is 24hr and perfect for a midnight swim! The games room and tennis courts were a nice bonus. The service was wonderful for our after hours check in and assisted us with... More

Hi Amanda, so glad you enjoyed your girls weekend away with us. Yes late night swims in the heated pool are really popular with guests - even on those cold winter nights. We hope to be welcoming you back again soon. More

What a wonderful getaway. Beautiful Blue mountains at its best. Enjoyed the peace and tranquility. Our cabin was very clean and comfortable. The resort offered lots of amenities that are great for families. The wonderful lady at reception was just great. Perfect place for families. Only stayed overnight but wished we'd stayed longer. Will definitely be back.

Beautiful little cottages close to Blue Mountains bushwalks and views. We stayed in one of the 2 bedroom suites which was charming and light-filled. We will definitely return! It looks like a good place to set up camp for day walks, and also has a pool, tennis court and bbq facilities.

Would return in a heart beat. Loved my stay and was extremely romantic for my wife and I for Valentines Day. Beautiful scenery, extraordinary peaceful, excellent night sleep to boot. I recommend this place to everyone who wants a break from the business of work and life in general. Escapeism is Thi magical place.

We had a perfect weekend getaway, and the stay at the possums hideaway was definitely one of the highlights. The cottages are quite secluded with fantastic views of natural bush-land, perfect for a quick trip from busy city life. The staff were fantastic, super friendly, but allowed enough privacy to enjoy the surrounds ourselves. Location is great very close to... More
