I managed to book The Sanctuary for a one night stay on a Sunday night to celebrate our 14th wedding anniversary. We were very very impressed by the overall establishment. We are seasoned travellers and have stayed in many Bed & Breakfast establishments here and in different countries...I would recommend The Sanctuary to anyone looking for quiet seclusion, exemplary 1st...

Christina and Owen have done a great job of creating a couples retreat on the Springbrook plateau. The Sanctuary is in a great location within walking distance of Purlingbrook falls and 3 local cafes. We spent the day walking the circuit below the falls in misty rain and came back to the cottage for a hot bath and time in... More

We stayed here for one night and enjoyed our stay - the apartment is very spacious with a large ensuite and wrap around deck. Suggested improvements to make this a truly 4 star establishment would be some lovely complimentary toiletries and to serve breakfast as advertised.... we were disappointed that a fresh fruit platter was not served. The setting is... More

We stayed for one night at very late notice when we were stranded in the pouring rain. We must be the luckiest people! The welcome was warm (especially from the beautiful, sweet natured dogs), the cottage is charming, gardens are gorgeous, breakfast fantastic. Essentially you get your own private cottage adjacent to the owners' property. Loved every second; the only... More

The Sanctuary was recommended to us when looking for a relaxing getaway and they were spot on. From the moment you arrive everything is beautiful. The photos don't do it justice it is just a special place. We booked the package which included flowers, chocolates, champagne, dinners and pampering products just to name a few things. It is well worth... More

My wife and I have just spend 3 nights at The Sanctuary with the most charming and helpful of hosts, Christina and Owen. The living room, fantastic bathroom and excellent bedroom are all in a separate building reached by a small walkway - this gives a terrific feeling of being really well looked after, yet being able to have our...

Best B and B my partner and I have stayed at. The gardens are beautiful and peaceful, the cottage is private and serene. The photos done do it justice. As soon as you walk in the door of your coat Tate you relax - everything is perfect, immaculate and cosy. We loved the bathroom with claw foot bath, chandelier type... More

My husband and I visited The Sanctuary last week for a mid week holiday. When we arrived we were amazed with the beautiful gardens and house. We personally love the 'Queenslander' style and this place was an excellent example. Christina and Owen were wonderful hosts and no request was too much. They were very nice and the food was in...

I booked this B&B based on the fact it consistently received the highest rating of 5– all I can say is that this rating is correct. We were greeted by a friendly lady who took us thro the cottage to explain all, and then served us freshly baked scones with fresh cream and real lose leaf hot tea, whilst we... More
