My hubby and I stayed here last weekend with our 2 and 3 year old. Split level set up good as kids went to sleep in the bed and we sat on the other level and watched tv. Room opens up on to large grass area with large pond with gazebo and tennis courts. Very pleasantly surprised. We stayed in... More

Stayed in the Disabled Room. Room very well appointed apart from the bathroom that could do with a refurbishment. Lovely relaxing and quiet environment. The access to the restaurant could be also improved but will be happy to stay at Briars again.

This old place in the Southern Highlands has a charm that is not easily replicated. The settings is unusual: the restaurant with a huge open verandah for eating outside in summer (attracting guests from all around), and the separate sleeping quarters. We have been lucky enough to have been given the suite which is right at the end (as long... More

We've stayed at Briars many times in their standard rooms but upgraded to the suite last week. The suite is aesthetically pleasant and even more spacious than their other rooms. However, there were three problems that are worth sharing. Firstly, the bathroom fan, which comes on with the light, makes more noise than many motorbikes. Next, the fire alarm which... More

We have been going to Briars for lunch for many years - the management (ownership) has slipped badly - food was well below any standards - it was "Christmas in July" and a massive disappointment - dried out meats, over cooked Vegetables and only saved by Ali the floor manager who apologized and refunded half the cost. Without her we... More

We attended this establishment for a wedding. The food we had both at the restaurant for dinner and breakfast was most enjoyable. The accommodation was good although a little overpriced. The wedding food, venue etc. was very good.

Check in was fuss free. Lady was nice at front desk. Bed was comfy with heated rooms overlooking a nice lake. The room had more than enough space. Dinner was expensive for a pub meal that started in the mid $30 range. Buffet breakfast was ok with eggs cooked to order. Id stay here again if the price was right.

We've dined here many times and enjoy the atmosphere. It's a great place for a group lunch with cook your own steaks and plenty of food choices. It's also child friendly. The outside tables are excellent in summer and the inside bars, with fireplaces roaring are great in winter
