My partner and I took the Romantic Escape Midweek. Fantastic. Our spacious (very clean) room was a cosy, warm, winter getaway overlooking the lake. Upon entering the room was a local bottle of champagne and chocolates. A beautiful touch. We had 2 breakfasts and 2 evening meals. The evening meals were hearty the breakfasts appropriately healthy. The eye fillet steak... More

We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights with breakfast included, described as a buffet breakfast which would have to have been the poorest selection of any hotel I have stayed at. And to make matters worse the food was almost cold, you could not really even call it warm. We could not face it on the second day but... More

At $256 or was it $228 or was that $190 anyway the card says $256, things should work. WIFI with 1 bar or less is not WIFI. A Stereo that offers ports to plug in your phone should then allow you to play music and 3 Foxtel Channels is not 8 Foxtel Channels. If you ask for these things to... More

The bathroom that we had was quite modern and had a separate shower with glass frame.The bed was especially comfortable. The restaurant had an adequate menu however, it was self serve and you have to order at the... More

We got married at Briars in the first weekend of March 2015 and it was absolutely perfect! The day was clear and sunny and everything went to plan. The accommodation was really nice as i stayed in both the twin room and the bridal suite and both were quite good.

I've visited Briars Inn on many occasions this was the first time I've experienced their accommodation. We arrived around 4pm. Check in was very quick. What a delight to be able to park right outside the door to our accommodation. The room was clean but could probably do with updating. But that said, it was well equipped with a sofa,... More

We stayed 2 nights to attend a wedding on arrival it all looked beautiful and we were looking forward to our weekend in the highlands. Rooms are set out well but need updating. Bathrooms are dated with the shower over the bath and annoying shower curtain. Every time you turned the bathroom light on the exhaust fan came on as... More

it was a wedding that drew us to Briars and the convenience of not having to travel after drinking wine at the wedding. The setting is lovely and the room had a great view toward an artificial lake. A pity that it was raining so we were not able to explore the property. The room is comfortably appointed with plenty... More

After reading recent reviews I was worried the Briars had gone down hill. It was just as I remembered it. Only difference the WiFi now actually works (and is free) Great rooms, great grounds, great restaurant / inn. All in all a very enjoyable stay and head and shoulders above similarly priced motels.
