We enjoyed a magical 3 night stay at Hillcrest Retreat. A secluded cottage with its own private garden and a view into the mountains in the distance. The cottage was perfect size, the log fire was very warm and set a romantic mood. The spa was perfect size and very relaxing. The self contained kitchen had everything we needed and... More

We spent an amazing 2 nights in the fabulous cottage; celebrating our wedding anniversary. We had such an amazing reception; met by the owners and our own personal 'security' puppies and beautiful ponies. A fire had already been lit for us and fresh baked bread was cooling on the kitchen counter. The bed had been laid out with red petals... More

Clive and Tracey made us feel very at home, made sure we had everything we needed and they keep the property immaculately clean. Hillcrest is in a beautiful location, surrounded by peaceful hills, not too far from Murwillumbah for restaurants and also close to a selection of lovely national parks. The breakfasts each morning were delicious and very generous. We... More

My husband and I have stayed at Hillcrest twice in the past year for long weekends. Tracy and Clive are fantastic hosts. Clive's breakfast is amazing (this is the only place I've ever been offered 2 or more courses for breakfast!) and we love the little extras, such as chocolates left in our room when we're away and port in...

My husband & I returned to Brisbane yesterday after spending a wonderful weekend in the cottage at Hillcrest. When I read the reviews before we left I must admit to being a little sceptical and thinking that nowhere could possibly be that good . Now I can say from my own experience that it certainly is. From the moment we... More

My 88 year old mother & I travelled from Brisbane to Murwillumbah to take in the Margaret Olley exhibition at Tweed gallery. Fantastic. Settled warmly into Hillcrest. Spectacular views, wonderful ambience. A couple of fab breakfasts catering to my coeliac needs and wonderful driving thru spectacular scenery . To be recommended.
