“Forest Loft - Romance and relaxation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

My husband and I recently celebrated our 10 year anniversary at Falls retreat. We stayed in a forest loft studio which was fantastic. Lovely gas fireplace (which we used as it was unseasonably cold and wet), huge spa in bathroom comfy king sized bed. The location is lovely - really close to the falls and the conservation hut and many bush walks. Also short drive to Leura and Katoomba. The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful. The one change I would make would be to add coffee plungers or small coffee machines (maybe pod style machine). Instant coffee (apart from being undrinkable) doesn't really match the rest of the "upper end" style of the accommodation. However we will undoubtedly be back - maybe try one of the family style apartments next time.

Great for nature lovers who are in the mountains for bush walking. Close to entrances for all the Wentworth Falls walks.
Much more room and privacy compared to B&Bs or resorts in Leura.
Can get "heat and eat" breakfasts delivered to your fridge each day. The quiches perhaps should have different fillings each day for variety. Kitchen fully equipped with dishwasher. The little note in the kitchen was no trouble at all. It is very common to see the extra cleaning charge displayed in holiday apartments. I doubt if they would ever charge you unless you left the kitchen in an absolutely disgraceful state. I am sure the whole apartment including the kitchen gets a full cleaning after each stay anyway.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in a 1 bedroom ground floor apartment.

We often stay at the FMR when taking a weekend break to the Blue Mountains. The units are beautifully designed with fireplaces, very comfortable beds, thoughtfully equipped kitchenettes and most luxurious spa baths. The retreat is in a quiet peaceful part of Wentworth Falls and close to beautiful walking trails, while being only 5 minutes drive from Leura. We recommend this establishment for a short stay in Wentworth Falls.

We were welcomed by Aaron & as we had arrived early he suggested some activities to do while we waited to check in. Wentworth Falls National Park is just a few hundred metres away! The apartment was well equipped, modern, clean, comfortable and had bush land views. Perfect for a getaway from the busy routine of city life.

This was our second stay at this resort, and we were not disappointed, it was still immaculately clean and well presented and the staff are very friendly and helpful. I would not hesitate to stay here again nor to recommend it to my friends, great apartments in a lovely setting and close enough to everything, yet away from the usual touristy hustle & bustle. Lovely place to stay.

We stayed at Falls Mountain Retreat for 3 nights during the recent school holidays (husband, myself, one teenager). The apartments are very modern with a full kitchen, huge bathroom with 2 person spa bath, air conditioning, 2 x flat screen tvs, washer and dryer, dishwasher and gas log fire. We had one king bed plus a comfortable sofa bed in the lounge room.

The apartments are in a quiet area very close to the falls and edge of the national park, only 5-10 minute drive to Katoomba and Leura. There are also some good eating options at Wentworth Falls only a few minutes drive from the apartments.

Only issue was that we could not work out how to turn the gas log fire off..although being the middle of winter it wasn't really a problem to leave it on all day.

All in all a very nice base from which to explore the Blue Mountains.

Room Tip: ground floor apartments have their own private courtyards which would be nice in warmer weather

Without doubt if you are looking for a modern place to stay & super close to the Wentworth falls hikes this is for you. We stayed in the loft apartment looking out onto the courtyard & trees. The gas fire was lovely & added to the romance of our weekend. Some not so good points, the 'king bed' is actually 2 singles pushed together. I made this distinction to the host. He came to look at the room & saw for himself housekeeping had not put the 'topper' on & the beds looked disheveled. I wouldn't want to be in the floor unit though. It looks very dark & there would be limited privacy if there were people sitting on the balcony above. Also, the massive book of rules was a turn off & a bit steep to charge $50 if you don't wash up your tea cup when the room cost $350 per night. Also, water got everywhere with the big spa shower & the towels are cheap & tiny.
