I was attending a conference at Bowral, stopping here because this was also the venue for the conference. The room was OK, quite clean but basic with a decent bed and ordinary bathroom. There was no desk in my room was proved to be quite annoying as I needed to do some work. I suspect I was in one of... More

Appreciate the review. Although not the most positive of review I will make sure to address all of your comments to the Kitchen team, as i am sure they will be disappointed in the review. I would be very interested to hear which conference you were with so that we have a more firm idea on the particular day you... More

A mid week escape to Peppers Craigieburn in Bowral is a delightful adventure even in unrelenting rain. The room is well appointed and the staff attentive. The car park is a little inconvenient in the rain being away to the side of the hotel buildings. In fine weather I am sure it is very pleasant to walk the short distance... More

Thanks for the review It certainly has been a week to remember when it comes to rain fall, our golf course is a water park at the moment. I am glad that the rain had not affected your stay, as long as you got a spot next to the fire you would have had a relaxing visit. The flowers will... More

I stayed over the weekend and though the whole thing was a bit disjointed, some good points others bad point. Checking in was great, smooth and fast, but the room was a lot smaller than I was hoping. And the car park had seen better. The lounge was welcoming and warm with its fires going but over time got very... More

We stayed here one night without kids, yeah! It is an old guesthouse and as such we expected the room to be small especially after reading the reviews. We were pleasantly surprised that is wasn't that small, we have stayed in a lot smaller all around Europe. The cosines adds to the experience. If you want a more modern hotel... More

Thank you kindly for the feedback. You are correct in the fact some of the 100+ year old rooms within the property are not exactly what you would get in a normal modern hotel. However we are not a modern hotel, we are a historic part of Bowral which I believe is the reason most of our guest come to... More

My wife and I stopped off in Bowral on our way to Tasmania, staying at Peppers, the Hickory Rest was excellent value, the local Shiraz beautiful, chef taste platter great. The room however was small, bathroom tiny. imitation period furniture in foyer a let down. All in all a okay place.

The room is really tiny for $300 per night. The facilities are great though..the lounge is very nice and cozy with big couches and fireplaces. I went just 1 day after they had snow in Bowral.. the grounds were covered in snow at that time and it was really beautiful. Their buffet breakfast is pretty good.

Thank you kindly for the feedback. The snow that fell was the first fall in 3 years, and it stuck around for three days which was amazing, and the best place at the time was in front of one of our fireplaces. Look forward to welcoming you back to the property Tom More

So the rooms are not magnificent - small bathroom - but the service IS ! Peppers craigieburn is in beautiful Bowral and although it is only a couple of hours from Sydney it is a different world once you step into the doors of the old homestead at peppers. Warm fires in the guest lounge which somehow seems intimate and... More

Recently my friends and I spent a fabulous weekend at Peppers Craigieburn Bowral.. Wonderful place to relax and enjoy the ambiance. Rooms were comfy and cosy and the public areas welcoming. Dinner both nights was lovely but the breakfasts were to die for with top marks going to the two older members of staff Wayne and Diana. Will be back.

I stayed here with my partner for a weekend. I thought it was quite expensive considering how dated it was. Package included breakfast which was standard and uninspiring. I could hear the TV and conversations between the guests in the next room and they weren't shouting. The service was friendly enough at reception and the kitchen and bar. There was... More
