Looking for something a little different than the run of the mill hotel. Try the Hideaway Retreat. Set in the majestic Blue Mountains this hotel offers an opportunity to relax in comfortable and pleasant surroundings with little touches of uniqueness, like their home made sourdough, or the bottles of red left by the fireside table one evening with a sign...

An amazing and original place to spend some times in the Blue Mountains. The staff is friendly and the place is just magical. There are some small art pieces pretty much everywhere, the view is beautiful and you are in the middle of the Blue mountains which are totally amazing. Thank you for this stay guys. I loved it.

Don't expect 5 star luxury and you will be rewarded by 5 star service and warmth. Wonderful small and friendly management where nothing is too much bother. Very helpful creating a homely and welcoming atmosphere. Would recommend to anybody.

Prices in the Blue Mountains are grossly exaggerated. There doesn't seem to be any way around this. although my future plan is: don't go! I was really sorry that the huge amount of money I paid got me such a basic place. Yes, there is some fun quirky artwork, and the sourdough bread for breakfast was excellent. There was a... More

I'm just gobsmacked. A review giving us 5 stars for location and cleanliness and 4 for service but smacking us and the mountains in general for being expensive? Rest assured we know how expensive running a business like this is and do everything to provide great value to our guests (which most see clearly). Now after the years we have... More

I was very disappointed with this hotel. It is self rated as 4 star but I think that is being extremely generous. A 2-3 star more likely. The building, pool, location and view are terrific but that's where the positives stop. On entering, the foyer is cold and lacking character. There are candles burnt out and not replaced, no care...

It was with baited breath we waited for this review to pop up over the internet. Please remember to secure one of our king rooms you only need to book one. We can not guarantee availability of one if the cheapest, discounted standard double rooms is booked to save money then a demand of free upgrade to a premium king... More

Nice Hotel with about 20 rooms. Looks like it may be close to highway and railway on the map but it is very quiet and backs directly onto the bush with great views over the valley. Staff were helpful and nothing was a problem. Very nice continental breakfast served with homemade bread. The room was clean and the bed was... More

What a lovely hotel hidden from the town in Wentworth Falls. The views were amazing and it was a very peaceful location. The hotel itself had a really nice vibe and we both felt very comfortable staying there. The hospitality of the owners is lovely and very friendly. The room was quite simple, but very clean. Would stay again.

The Hideaway is not walking distance to town so plan on driving. It is in a beautiful setting with mountain views and bushy surrounds. The building looks ok from the outside and the foyer included a lovely lounge area with a fire and reading material. The rooms are a good size with a double bed and a single bed. the... More

Thanks so much for leaving a review of our home. Perhaps next time you would like to give one of our newly renovated Monarch King rooms a go. We have been gradually upgrading all manner of things across our little piece of the world and these new rooms are fantastic (although our standard rooms as you noted are great too!... More

We recently held our wedding at the retreat and we must say, amazing. Damien, Ronnie and staff went above and beyond to help us out with our wedding preparations. The day of the wedding was amazing. Damien had ensured that everything was perfect for our big day. The rooms were clean, beds comfortable and location outstanding. Thankyou so much again.
