Only stayed one night, but was impressed with rooms. Great views and feel. Beds a bit dodge but fine. Front desk staff were great and brekkie hit the spot. Only downside is we didn't have dinner there as friends said it was wonderful, unlike Sutton forest inn.

I found the property to be beautiful, the rooms were a little bit tired so a little spruce up would go a long way ! Found the Inn was great with an open fire and a great selection of local wines. Food was nice and in my opinion above normal pub fare. Had the cook your own steak which the... More

We stayed for 2 nights. Our room was lovely and warm with a beautiful outlook. It was clean and comfortable. Unfortunately it was tired and in need of a revamp. Our door couldn't be locked from the inside which we prefer to be able to do when we are going to sleep.The door also rattled terribly in the wind so... More

Recently stayed for one night for 3yr anniversary. The room was flawless, amazing amenities provided, clean, classy, very large tub, great design and layout of room overlooking lake. The staff were soooo friendly. 100% recommend and 100% going back. Do not hesitate! Great price for very very high value!

We drove up here on a Sunday - it was very cold 7 degrees. The Restaurant was booked solid and one of the girls told us there would maybe be some tables in the bar lounge area. We found a nice cosy table with comfortable lounge chair right in front of an open fire. The waitress and bar staff were... More

Stayed for Mon & Tues nights. Room was well-appointed , clean , good outlook with a nice view over green space and private pond with Gazebo. The only real issue was a lack of communication re the amenities and an embarrassing moment at dinner. 1) We could not get the TV to work, apparently there was a 'Kill Switch" next... More

I have recently stayed for 4 nights with a friend. Our room was very comfortable with a beautiful view. Krista on reception was so helpful and very professional, she made us feel very welcome. However, I feel the standard of communication at the Inn was lacking and I was put in a very embarrassing position. We had paid $40 between... More

We would recommend Briars if planning a trip to Bowral. All the staff were attentive and very helpful. The motel rooms were spacious, the bed was large and comfortable, we also found our room very quiet. The aspect was just beautiful, getting up in the morning to a scene of mist on the lake and the wild life just wandering... More

We have returned to this lodge several times and love it. The rooms are modern, clean and well appointed, and through our French doors, overlook a wide expanse of countryside with ducks strutting up to meet you before they plunge into the sizable lake that is on the property.Beds very snug ... hard to leave! I love the historical Inn... More
