I have read some of the previous reviews, and simply cannot understand some of them. Our stay at Torpys , in the Historical 1830's house was superb. Andy the owner, went above & beyond in making our stay enjoyable. The house is OLD... so of course it is not pristine and fresh as a new Hotel of 5 Stars would... More

We are on a charity cycle tour around Australia and Torpys Eco Retreat kindly donated us one night accommodation as we passed through Braidwood. The proprietor, Andy, was very friendly and went out of his way to make us feel welcome. The Eco Lodge offers discounts to eco-friendly travelers and those trying to reduce their carbon footprint – such as... More

We had a really good time at Torpys Eco Motel. The place is really unique and the owner was very kind. Got a great sleep, after an unbelievable dinner down the road at the Paydirt Eatery. Very good value for money!

The rooms were very clean and as advertised in period furniture. The hosts Jacki and Andrew not only made me feel welcome but treated me as part of the family. The first noticeable point is the Historic appearance of the building, being painted with White Wash. Upon entering all floors are polished timber and converted gas lighting in the major... More

If your looking for 5 star accommodation, then this is NOT the place for you. We came with the intention to camp on the lovely field out the back of the motel, but Andy offered us a room, if not taken by 8pm, at half price...which was very kind and thoughtful of him. When we got back at about 10pm,... More

We stayed at Torpy's on the weekend of 7th Decemeber 2013 for a wedding. We had only a booking for the Saturday night and at the last minute decided we would like to stay the Friday night too. Andy went out of his way to fit us in and he provided us with helpful advice for the trip to Braidwood.... More

Torpy is a creep. He stalks the hallways at all hours; day and night. He has a flashlight hat that he loves to use as he creeps around at night. He cooks up chook at 2.30 in the morning. The heaters there are paper thin; you basically freeze for the night. There were red hairs in the sink??? The whole... More

AVOID THIS STRANGE AND DIRTY PLACE AT ALL COSTS!!!! I don't even know where to begin. We had one of the most awful hotel experiences ever here (and we are frequent travellers). The room was dated, stale smelling, old and disgusting bathroom (the toilet hadn't been cleaned and there were faeces and urine in and around it), old and smelly... More

While not the most luxurious place I have stayed in, it is true to its heritage character. The rooms for us in the house (3) we're warm and comfortable and we managed shared bathrooms. Andy gathered up chairs and glasses when we decided on a glass of wine between the wedding and reception we were attending. The garden needs a... More
