The atmosphere is lovely, it a gorgeous country setting however the dining is terrible. We were there for lunch and the food was very bland and almost like a fast food stall and there is a very disappointing salad bar with dirty utensils which I would advise you skip. Such a disappointment, this could be so much more if only... More

Stayed for one night to help break up a long road trip of the Southern Highlands. Did not expect to find a place of this standard in this area. Reception staff very friendly and helpful. Room was very adequate, although a little stuffy on initial entry, but was well appointed, clean and had everything that we needed. Opening the rear... More

Great hotel. Staff were excellent and service second to none. Lovely country feel and personal service. Stayed for the Bong Bong cup and the evening at Briars after the cup was excellent. Great Party. Highly Recommended.

We checked in to this beautiful and spacious room with great optimism. Lots of good lighting which is often hard to find. It was lovely to have older style fittings which seem much more substantial than newer style to our thinking. Outside was a lovely lake, birds busy so we were well rested and relaxed when we went to dinner.... More

I was there with a party of 15 on a Saturday night for dinner and drinks. I thought a first glance the meals were overpriced. My daughter and I ordered the pork roast(sitting in the bain marie). All meals were served,mine came last even though it was in the bain marie and did not need to be cooked like others... More

We stayed here for a wedding, lovely big room, comfy beds. Great view from room over the gardens. Room was clean, a little outdated. One little point was the toilet seat didn't fit the toilet. Restaurant food was really tasty we had dinner and breakfast here.

This place ticks all the boxes it is very clean and the staff are fantastic the room has a super view of the pond with beautiful... More

Again we had our annual cousins reunion at Briars in the Bong Bong room. This separate room allows freedom to enjoy each others company in some what a noisy room of chatter. The small children can also enjoy themselves without disturbing other diners. The food was delicious being able to choose from an extensive menu. Service was great given that... More

Well appointed rooms, friendly staff who are very accommodating and best of all a great restaurant on site with something for everyone - the bonus was an extensive wine list. Great value for money - have been before and will come again!

We were a little disappointed by the room on arrival, not that anything was wrong per se, but more that it was a little older and a bit tired for the price. However on the conclusion of our stay we decided we would go back to Briars in a heartbeat because of the entire experience. They have the most awesome... More
