We used the gym, pool and spa, which were also very good. The wedding was lovely, the place is an ideal set up for... More

We headed to the wine festival and stayed for three nights. The location is a good change of head space from Sydney with the cottages providing space and privacy. Recommended for a taste of the country. We had a problem with the stove not working but the issue was quickly resolved

I've been to brackenridge around 4 times now and each time the cottages are in a worse state and the service at reception is extremely poor. When you pay over $700 for a weekend I expect the cottage to have a good standard of chattels and be cleaned to a very high standard. Not only were there around 20 dead... More

Stayed here over the weekend and the staff were absolutely lovely and definitely the highlight of the accommodation. The setting of the retreat is incredible and the layout and decor of the rooms were very nice. Visited the spa for a facial on the stay and the lady was lovely! Highly recommend this accommodation.

Leeann was amazing. She was so helpful with everything that we asked. Her calm manner was very reassuring when we were organising the 3 days remotely. On... More

My son and DIL treated me to a Nourishing Journey Spa under the caring hands of Julia. Not only do I feel completely relaxed, my dog thinks I am delicious. I have been through a bit of a rough patch but now feel much restored. The room was very clean but did not look clinical. It was warm and comfortable.... More
