I have read the reviews of other travellers as well as the responses from management and feel that there is a huge market being missed out as well as constructive criticism not being taken. When we arrived, Friday 10 July, we were greeted by the gates to the hotel being closed half way with a sign saying that they were... More

Thank you for your comments and we note that you found our building Beautiul and Grand. That she is. Our Gardens are very well established and are amazing to wander through and we are pleased you enjoyed our large spacious rooms that are super warm and comfortable. Since our purchase of the hotel late last year we have undergone and... More

A visit for lunch yielded the hotel under rennovation with lunch only being served (reservations required). A delightful day with beautifully presented fare, really tasteful table and serviette decorations and helpful staff. Apparently the hotel has been closed and is now only opening for weekends. The lolly and gift shop are not in place at this time - however the... More

Many Thanks for your kind words and lovely review. We are doing some major works within the property and are making the Grand Old Manor "Grand" again. We are pleased you enjoyed your luncheon, having sourced our produce from the Highlands. We are definately looking at bringing back the Elegance and Grandeur to the property and look forward to seeing... More

We were at Fountaindale with two other rooms full of friends and family for Xmas in July in 2014. I understand the place has since changed hands, so pls keep in mind that my review is a year late! Personally, I had a fantastic time. Fountaindale is/was grand, run down, but still glorious, in her own unique tired old way.... More

Our weekend in Robertson was exactly what we wanted and The Fountaindale Grand Manor made it better than what we'd hoped for. A beautiful grand house. Steeped in history. Open fire places, a spacious, comfortable room for relaxing in not just sleeping. Beautiful rooms to share but so large that you feel like you're the only ones there. Lisa and... More

Our group had a wonderful experience , they are renovating this grandeur place back to its former glory that I remember as a child . We loved our stay and I will be bringing the Sydney Gourmet foodies back again soon.

My partner and I stayed over the June long weekend for 2 nights. We couldn't get a room with an ensuite and were told we'd be using the shared bathroom facilities which was fine by us. When we arrived, however, we were put in a huge family room with 4 beds right at the end of the corridor (as far... More

What an amazing opportunity to cash in on the Sydney market but completely missed. Are the owners totally cash strapped or lack an opportunistic mentality? Probably both. Big room and very little bar heater for the southern highland cold. I am generally not a fan of the overpriced mini bar but I want the choice to say no! No phone... More

Hello Michelle, You may be unaware of the history of this Grand Old Manor house and the change of ownership recently. We havent had a "Michelle" staying with us lately, so I'm not sure when you may have stayed? The building is now under new management and if you have been there over the years, you will notice a lot... More

Set amidst beautiful, lush gardens in the rural Southern Highlands of NSW ~ what a beautiful old manor house to have High Tea! The staff were pleasant but not overly attentive - there weren't many guests but I think it seemed understaffed and once we were given our High Tea they didn't come near us to offer refills etc.and we...

My husband really wanted to treat me on our weekend in the Highlands. We sat in the lounge by the fire while Rachel served us a lovely High-tea. It was quiet, calm and indulgent and we loved it. Thank you

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
