You are actually IN the rain forest, with your covered deck and cabin completely surrounded by trees. Fantastic outlook from all parts of the room including the spa bath and all in total privacy and seclusion. I was unaware that there were other guests at the property until I went up to the main lodge for an excellent meal. We... More

This place is fantastic, set right in the rainforest and only for couples. There are only 10 units spaced far enough apart so it feels private and secluded. Huge trees all around with birds singing and the odd Paddy Melon fossicking on the forest floor. Rooms are huge, warm and very comfortable. There is a restaurant there, serves are small... More

Set in the dense rainforest, each tree-house is secluded, you feel embedded in nature. The rooms are extremely spacious and elegantly appointed with antiques. The staff are friendly, at your disposal on a need be basis. We had the massage package and I reckon it was worth every cent extra. A place just to rewind, have some of the wines... More

We had a two night stay at Pethers and loved it. We took cheese platter and wine to have in the front of the fire on our first night - nice way to unwind and ease into a luxurious weekend. So secluded we only saw other people at dinner on our second night. Close to Witches Falls walk for a... More

Room design is spacious and stylish. We had the feeling of being in the rainforest canopy. The small number of staff were pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was delivered to our rooms and the fridge included complimentary champagne! Disappointing that restaurant was not open but we we were aware of this in advance because it was winter. The local restaurants recommended... More

My now fiance and I hit on a great bargain of a two night two person stay through Groupon, and was it worth it? Good gracious yes. We were welcomed by a lovely cheese platter and bottle of chilled Brut in the fridge, and walked in to the treehouse to find a lovely fireplace, big, comfortable bed, beautiful spa bath,... More

My partner and I had a wonder time at Pethers. The rooms were very comfortable and warm during winter and the spa was great. Good location. We will definitely be returning for another visit. Great place. :)

The layout & room size were fantastic certainly not a pokey motel room, it was nearly 1/3 of a house. All furnishing were very comfortable as you could lay around all day looking at the rain forest right outside your window whilst enjoying the warmth from the gas fire.

I could not fault Pethers at all. Room, view, surroundings, location and staff were amazing. The fireplace makes the room so cosy. The location is good for shopping during the day with great restaurants.
