It was a surprise weekend booked for a belated birthday from my best friend. We left the hustle and bustle of the big smoke and stopped off for dinner in Bowral. We arrived around 8.15pm at the Fountaindale Grand Manor as we drove up the driveway to the beautiful old hotel. On arrival we were greeted by Toby at the... More

I booked what I thought was going to be a lovely romantic weekend getaway with my husband, I paid enough for it! As soon as we arrived and saw our very expensive room, we started debating whether we should just drive home again. Awful, miserable shared bathroom facilities - this was not mentioned in the ad. Freezing room, we had... More

Dear Wenelle, Since your visit to Fountaindale back in July, the property has undergone new ownership and new management. The property was used usually for function purposes and exclusive use, so not the usual "drop in hotel envronment" you may have been expecting. Yes, it is a very old (90 years) Grand building that doesnt have central heating etc. It... More

Spent the long weekend October 2014 at Fountaindale. New owners of one week managed to highlight this Grand Old Lady's Charms. Bed was large and comfortable, feather comforter, large fresh white bath towels etc. etc. The present owners understand the need for upgrade and have great plans in store. Not withstanding run down condition, this hotel exudes charm and captures... More

I struggle to write this review as I know from reading the many reviews and owners responses that this is very much a labour of love for them so I'm sorry to give an overall negative review. Unfortunately whilst the building has fantastic bones and you can totally imagine the grandieur once it is done, its going to take major... More

We met family for our yearly reunion. This year we chose to have Christmas in July lunch at Fountaindale Grand Manor. From the time we walked in the door we were treated as VIP's every staff member we came across couldn't be more friendly or helpful We were helped with placing our gifts for family in a safe place along...

The rudest most unhelpful person running the place (carol). The simplest request was invariably responded to with a no. The building and location are fabulous even if run down. The "buffet" breakfast was watery scrambled eggs, poor quality bacon and stale cereal. Instant coffee only. The place was overpriced but if Carol had've been more accommodating and less incompetent I... More

We took a trip to the Southern Highlands today and stopped off at Fountaindale Manor for a Devonshire tea as we have done in the past. My memories were not disappointed. We had great coffee and hot chocolate, beautiful homemade, warm scones, fresh whipped cream and plenty of home made raspberry jam! Yum! This house is just charming and the... More

It is such a pity this old building has been left to rot. I have stayed in places a lot older and heaps better maintained. It looks like a cheap b & b in London that you pay half the price to stay. I hope somebody helps this old girl out, it could be an amazing place. The staff are... More

I struggle with these types of reviews and have taken time to write this response so I get write it not from the heart but in a commonsense type of view. Ignorance comes to mind when people do not do do their homework and find out facts before they write their reviews. Also honesty and writing all the facts goes... More
