This is a real find in the cutesy world of Berry charm. The old world, chintzy charm of this village can really be overdone, but The Drawing Rooms, despite the stuffy title, is actually a great place to stay. (It takes its name from the nearby Drawing Room rocks formation). The guesthouse is fine if you don't mind dealing with other guests, as it has a communal area which is spacious and smartly comtemporary with a few touches of antiquity thrown in - the asian artifacts and the open fire are a plus. THe rooms are spacious and comfortable, with all you need (although be prepared: no phones, which is a plus if you want a break, but can be unnerving if your someone who needs to stay in touch, and mobile reception is tenuous). For a complete break, try one of the cottages which are self contained and away from the main guesthouse. The setting is very pretty, in its own spacious grounds and the outlook from all views really pretty. Clean, clever, contemporary and a really peaceful environment. Breakfast is included, atlhough again, for those wanting a real pamper be prepared although it's laid out you do your own thing (ie. own toast, etc). The property is in a great location as it is only a short drive from the main town of Berry, right near the KANGAROO VALLEY and not far from spectacular beaches as well. It's modern, new and the hosts are discreet. There is coffee and tea all day. This area is proliferated with guest houses and hotels but very few are as classy and quiet as this place. You won't be disappointed.
