We visited as gift from our kids. It was disappointing that the restaurant at Pethers was not open either night we were there. We also experienced lack of service when we thought we would settle in for the afternoon on Monday to find the DVD didn't work after phoning reception and leaving a message we did not hear back for...

A wonderful greeting at reception and we decided we did not want to go out for dinner so dined in both nights. A small menu &we do not eat big meals so some may find the portions small but for us they were perfect. Enjoyed the breakfast basket that was delivered each morning. We were looking for a nice quite... More

Loved our stay at Pethers, very relaxing beautiful room with huge spa. Staff are lovely and friendly. A cute little breakfast delivered in basket every morning which is great, tea and coffee and milk which is available very nice. There is no phone service which I understand out in middle of rainforest. Heard there was wifi but wasn't made of... More

We were surprised and awed by the quality and serenity of the accommodation, considering there are 10 rooms here it felt like we completely secluded, apart from the possums running on the roof at night. The complementary breakfast every morning was a treat and being able to have the fire on every night at no extra charge was a luxury.... More

My husband and I were keen for a kid free getaway for our wedding anniversary and after lots of research decided to book at Pethers. We are glad we did. It offers luxury accommodation and the restaurant offers beautiful food. After leaving a house full of noise and chaos and arriving here to the sounds of birds and nature, it... More

Loved Pethers, views outside our room were restful and uniquely Australian. Even saw a pademelon one day ( looks like a wallaby). We are in the restaurant and it was phenomenal, food was beautifully presented, staff were knowledgeable and friendly esp Katie our waitress

We stayed at Pether's for a few nights after our wedding to wind down and have a bit of a "pre honeymoon". The Treehouse is just glorious and well equipped. We loved waking up to such a stunning view and making good use of the spa bath. The delivered breakfast every morning was simply lovely and the staff, in particular... More

Our wedding ceremony and reception at Pethers was perfect in every way. The rainforest setting is absolutely magical and so peaceful. Everything was set-up and arranged flawlessly and absolutely exceeded our expectations. Thanks to the staff and the most beautiful location we had the most amazing wedding day. The treehouses are unique and so private and romantic. All the food... More

Stayed for a night at the Pethers earlier this week and the tree house interior is huge and spacious. The view from the room outwards to the balcony and forest is simply breathtaking and amazing during the day. As night falls, we had to switch on the fireplace to warm up the sizeable room. The bathroom is separated from the... More
