My husband & I just spent 3 days at peppers to celebrate our 1st Anniversary. We walked away thinking where else we could have gone for $1200. The views of the Gold Coast & bush surroundings were lovely. The highlight for us was the fire place & spa bath in the treehouse pool villa, which we have enjoyed at other... More

My Husband and I held our wedding here at Peppers Ruffles Resort in May of 2011 (it has taken me a little while to get around to this review!) This is the PERFECT destination for a wedding. The location will simply take your breath away. The service is impeccable. The owners John & Jan are incredibly decent & Jess our... More

We stayed for 3 nights and while the location was nice and the rooms OK-nice, for $600 a night it was below par for the standard expected at this end of town. It felt a bit dated / plain for a peppers, look still good and a reasonable standard, we just expected, well, more...

Stayed in Garden Villa 1 for a 1 night getaway. It has outstanding views from the deck. The room was spacious with several comfortable sitting areas. Bathroom was great size for two people. The spot is quiet and the night time view of the lights of the Gold Coast amazing. We sat by the pool in the late afternoon and... More

We stayed at the Garden Villa room no 2@ Ruffles Lodge & Spa 2nights for my partner's birthday weekend. We arrived around 7pm and checked in at the restaurant (as the reception was already closed that time). The room was pleasantly equipped with the necessities. The view was absolutely magical and we loved waking up with that heavenly view. It... More

The location of this property is perfect - away from the built up coastal strip - set in high amongst trees with fresh cool air. The view from the Treehouse spa/pool villa is wonderful from both decks - as is the view of the coast from the restaurant and pool. The accommodation is large and beautifully designed - particularly the... More

I would like to thanks all of the staff for making my stay with my daughter Cassandra for her birthday a memorable time. We stayed in Villa 3 the views where gorgeous. The hamper which was delivered was beautiful as well as the strawberries and wine. Our meal in the restaurant on Wedneday night was mouth watering and good service.... More

We were amazed how quickly the scenery changed from beach to rainforest on the 30 minute trip to Ruffles from the centre of Surfers Paradise... you would think you have travelled for hours. Set amongst leafy tall trees the Lodge & Spa have amazing views from every angle. Reception was quick and friendly, and the villa was easily equal to... More

We cannot thanks Ruffles enough for the perfect getaway they provided. The service was fantastic, the views were amazing and the room was wonderfully luxurious. Admittedly we snapped up a fantastic price for our lovely treehouse villa otherwise we couldn't have afforded to stay (bearing in mind that we're in our early 20s with average-paying jobs), so if finances are...

Was surprised by my partner when he took me here for a weekend in June. The weather was cold, raining, but it didn't matter with our room.... We cracked open a bottle of wine, turned on the fire, and relaxed, even enjoyed a luxurious spa bath. AMAZING! Dinner in the restaurant that night was very nice, very private and we... More
