We arrived around 4pm and were told there was no electricity. We had a long drive from the city and accepted the room as long as we could have a spa. I asked Tania if the spa worked and she assured us it did and told us there was hot water. We turned the tap to fill the spa and... More

My partner and I spent a night in the Arnica Loft yesterday, and it was absolutely delightful! When we arrived it was pouring down outside, so it was wonderful to step into the Loft, where a fire was already going and candles had been lit. The Loft consists of two levels. On the ground floor are the sitting room (with... More

We travelled all the way to Mount Dandenong,( about 10 kms) and were well rewarded for our troubles. Generally a trip to the Dandys is for lunch or a picnic but this time we went as tourists. Arnica views is at the top of the ridge within a short stroll of the lookout. This then sets the scene for the... More

We went to Arnica Views for a birthday celebration. The suite was spotlessly clean and well appointed. We were in one of the downstairs suites and which looked out into the bush surrounds. It was during a wet chill burst of early Spring weather but we were warm and cozy inside. We felt really away from it all there, until... More

Thank you for yet another wonderful stay at Arnica Views. We had stayed at the beautiful retreat earlier in the year and made it our first pick in our recent weekend away. Tania our host on both occasions was very warm and friendly and had also upgraded our room at no additional charge, after our room had been double booked... More

Day 1: Tania telephoned us with the news that power was out, so our room would not be ready till after 6pm. We had plans for dinner, so that was okay, though I would have preferred to be settled in during daylight. Originally check-in was for 3pm. On arrival, the office was closed but there was a welcome notice. First... More

Thank you for your wonderful feedback in relation to the beautiful presentation and detail of our rooms, and yes the location too is ideallic and peaceful. We have seven stunning retreats, all of which are private and stand alone, other than the two Arnica Suites which have the Sunset Suite on the top level. There has been substantial sound proofing...

My husband and I are just back from a 1 night mid week stay at Arnica Views. We stayed in the Barn Loft and found it to be very quaint and comfortable. When we arrrived the gas log fire was going and several tea lights were burning and the lovely ambience was completed by having tasteful music playing. Extremely happy... More

My husband and I spent two nights at Arnica Views during the first week in August . It was a special treat for my husbands birthday. And what a treat! Everything during our stay was absolutely perfect. We loved our spacious (and very clean) room, the beautiful four poster (which was very comfortable), the huge spa bath, the birds outside... More

Definitely not suitable for young children. The manager was rude, in hospitable and patronising. When we arrived we realised it was not suitable and the room was not as advertised on the website and really not our taste. We asked to leave, but our 3 night accomodation would not be refunded. We were made to feel unwelcome, asked to be... More

Whilst the review was made in March 2011, the booking related to a stay in the July 2009 school holidays and was made through a third party provider. Arnica Views is a retreat that provides a luxury and romantic retreat for couples looking to escape, and we agree the property is not generally suitable for children. This is stipulated on... More
