My daughter and I planned a mother daughter weekend and I booked a hotel on WOTIF, I put in 4 star as the criteria as you may know you have to pay for a mystery hotel before you actually see it. My daughter and I arrived at the Hideaway at about 4pm on the 9 July 2015, the place was... More

At first my wife had reservations of staying here as the reception and building looked bit older and as others have noted quirky or as having old school charm, but after we switched from upstairs to downstairs room and enjoyed our first 2 nights as we originally booked we added an extra night as we relaxed and appreciated the hotel...

Warm, friendly and comfortable place to stay. Has a nice feeling of relaxation, great views of the valley. Great hideaway, but close enough to shops. Rooms are very spacious and comfortable with modern amenities such as iPad, large flat screen TV and updated furnishings. Charming entrance with fireplace and bookcase gives it a homely feel. Staff are very warm and... More

Perfect for a weekend away from the rat race. So much silence apart from the birds. Rooms are very comfortable with interesting decor. Continental Breakfast was quite filling, additional hot breakfast has large variety. Staff were like friends, nothing was a bother to them.

We visited the Hideaway Retreat for a wedding recently and we were pleasantly surprised by this quirky little place. Situated on the southern side of the railway and well away from the town centre, it certainly lives up to "retreat", and if famous quotations worked into walls, floors and balustrades sound interesting then this is the place for you. There's... More

"Quirky" is a good description. It also provides an adequate accommodation base, but is in a relatively remote position, and is showing its age in many areas. It's a bushland location, but you can still hear both the highway and the railway that pass behind the building. It's nothing too loud, but quite audible on a still night. The room... More

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.
