Our suite was private, spacious (large enough to entertain other guests, either in-room or on the verandah), more than adequately furnished for a couple, and tastefully decorated. Lots of nice touches like the quality house-made toiletries (but don't souvenir the left-overs unless you want to fork out around $25 each - buy from reception to indulge in at home). The extensive grounds are beautifully kept and well-designed to wander through and relax in without disturbing anybody. We enjoyed dinner at Manfredi's, but to us it was 'heavy', with both of our entrees and mains doused in excessive oil/butter. We would have appreciated a lighter touch to better showcase the fresh ingredients. Breakfast was comfortable, on the restaurant verandah overlooking the gardens. But the experience was a bit hit and miss - for example one of us received perfectly poached eggs (to order, extra cost), the other received a pair of billiard balls. The range of buffet options was adequate rather than great. Top-notch bircher meusli, though. Service not attentive enough for a property of this quality and price (plates not cleared, not asked about a second cup of tea, depleted stock not replenished etc.). Pastries were heavy. This is a wonderful retreat in one of the most beautiful parts of Australia. Plan some local walks, starting with Maitland Bay if you're feeling energetic. Overall, Bell's at Killcare is most delightful, but the dining didn't quite make it for us on this occasion.
