Cedar Lodge Chalet was superb. Well equipped, warm and comfortable. Everything you could possibly need is provided. The view of the valley by day is truly peaceful and the stars at night are aplenty. We thoroughly enjoyed our week by the fire and exploring the nearby national parks. The kids' favourite - the swings!

Stayed at Kintail at Ravensbourne Mountain Resort and couldn't have been happier with our experience. The staff from Ravensbourne Escape were friendly and helpful and went out of their way to ensure that our stay was comfortable, well organised and we didn't want for anything. The views from Kintail's main living room, deck and spa in the main bedroom, were... More

We had the pleasure of getting away last weekend to what a friend described as "Toowoomba's best kept secret" I stayed at Tree Tops chalet at Ravensbourne Escape Mountain Resort for Friday and Saturday night. The location and accommodation was superb with beautiful vista views of the forest and far distance from the restaurant and secluded immersion of the surrounding... More

We've stayed in over 40 cottages/cabins and were starting to think that they are all getting over-priced for what you get compared to other accommodation styles. We are also sick of flash websites and a lower reality, but this time we were not disappointed. Kookaburra Kottage was great value. The spa was large and worked, the fire stove was romantic... More

I don't usually go for the wedding anniversary thing, but being married for 20 years sometimes requires a bit of extra effort. I got the teenager's sorted, organised the finances and set the date.

Stayed at Tree Tops with my partner and really enjoyed the surroundings. The inside of the cabin was modern and clean. However - the communication with the staff was non-existent.

We are sorry that you did not feel you had good communication. Unfortunately you booked through an overseas listing that was not up to date, we were not aware until your booking came through that this was still active. Because of this our ability to communicate with you was very limited. Our website and confirmation emails clearly state the check... More

We could take it or leave it. Not what I would call value for money. It was nice, but not fantastic. Especially for the price tag. I think there are better value places elsewhere, but I guess it's up to people's individual tastes.
