Driftwood is such an outstanding hotel that the weather is irrelevant (and, quite honestly, the forecasts sometimes seem to predict worse conditions than prove to be the case - which was our experience during our most recent visit to this gem on the Roseland Peninsula). It's easy to run out of superlatives for Driftwood. The breathtaking sea views, the delightful... More

This review is a little late. We stayed over the Valentine's Weekend which my husband had booked as a surprise for me. I was enthralled. The location is breath taking and we spent a memorable time walking and beachcombing on the private beach. The hotel is quirky. Not lush deep wallowing luxury as in some five star establishments. To us... More

From the moment we drove up until we left the service and food was amazing. When we arrived immediately asked if we would like tea or coffee in our room. When it was time for dinner we enjoyed drinks and detailed explanation with dinner and wine pairings at the lounge before even getting to the table. The restaurant manager Matthew... More

From the moment we arrived to the moment we departed the staff, service, hospitality and comfort could not be bettered. The rooms were clean and spacious, the food out of this world and the bar selection superb.

We spent a wonderfully special Valentine's weekend at Driftwood Hotel and it was so good we didn't want to leave, so we extended our stay. This is the second time we have stayed here and it was just as amazing as we remembered. From the welcoming staff; the beautifully, comfortable, light and airy rooms (we had 2 this time!) with...

Have enjoyed this Hotels offering for evening meals on a number of occasions over the past few years. Prices are not cheap in my opinion, but when I want to celebrate a special occasion, this Hotels Restaurant never fails to please. From the warm welcome and pleasant snacks offered with a drink on arrival whilst perusing the Menu, to being... More

We have just spent a delightful romantic Valentines weekend at Driftwood Hotel. Having just read "Wendy A"'s review I really must totally disagree with her comments. We chatted with several guests over the weekend in the cosy lounge and bar and all had the same view as ourselves, this is a lovely chilled, relaxed by the beach small intimate hotel,... More

This was our first and last stay at this hotel. My husband had booked us in for a romantic two night stay over the Valentines weekend . We stayed for only one night because there was nothing romantic or luxurious about this place. Needless to say it ruined our intended romantic weekend away. The hotel charges luxury prices but all...

We appreciate guests taking their time to write a review. Whilst we are very sorry that Mr & Mrs “Wendy A” didn’t enjoy their stay, it is very difficult to respond to comments which reflect the polar-opposite of other guest’s opinion. Fortunately the other 28 guests thoroughly enjoyed their stay, dinner and wines. Several expressed their relief when Mr &... More

Our weekend here was perfect. The staff were welcoming, the hotel beautifully decorated and the food was fantastic. On top of this, sea views from the bedroom and dining room, the local beach and sunny weather made this a fantastic place to stay even in winter. Despite it being the last weekend of the season, the staff were really helpful... More

Having eaten here very recently, I felt that this time, I would leave a comment or two for this beautiful, understated, discreet hotel. From the moment you walk into The Driftwood, it embraces you, the decor is stunningly done & the views from here speak for themselves. The staff are superb, quietly efficient, knowledgable about everything they are serving &... More
