I found Tops Organic Resort the apt place for a family vacation. We spent 3 nights and loved the fact that we all enjoyed it. Kids loved the farm animals, feeding the guinea pigs and horse rides. My little still raves about it. For me, I loved the 4x4 drive track they have. Most of all, my wife was happy... More

I really don't no where to start. To advertise as a 4.5 star retreat they should be reported to Trading Standards. 3 star would be generous. The 2 staff who seemed to run the place were pleasant enough but they were obviously completely out of their depth. The food in the restaurant was ok but very limited in choice and... More

The review has been read, and please note that the following has been rectified. 1. The netting of the screen door gets loose as some of the kids push them around. We do a maintenance regular and they have been sorted out 2. It is a country side, and pool will have leaves in, inspite of the fact we clean... More

We are a family of 5 (three young kids aged 3, 5, and 7). This place changed owners 6 months ago. The new owners are investors and have put a lovely young couple in charge of the retreat. Unfortunately there seems to be poor communication between the owners who take the booking and the managing staff. We ended up paying... More

I think you are being absolutely unfair in the above review. While we are open to receiving feedback, it is not acceptable for us to sit back and accept statements that are not true.. I do hope, that you release that in the event of venting out, you are in the process destroying a reputation and a business that takes... More

As a family group, celebrating a 75th birthday we were booked into 2 cottages for 3 nights, but stayed only one. Management refused to consider a partial refund, even faced with evidence that the accommodation was far below 4.5 star standard. The master bedroom facilities were bare minimal, with not even a hook for a towel, let alone a clothes... More

Dear Fred, It is unfortunate that you did not have the positive experience that all our oath guests have had.

We stayed at the retreat for 4 days over New Years. The location of the lodge is amazing and picturesque while the lodges themselves looked to be originally very luxurious but seem to have some wear and tear on the edges (e.g. covering the window of the bathroom with newspaper instead of curtains and gaps in the flyscreen to prevent...

Set in the beautiful Barrington Tops, we stayed for two nights over New years. Our cabin was set near the bush and we enjoyed sitting on our balcony and seeing the birds and animals nearby.

My family made the decision to travel to the Barrington Tops Organic Retreat over Christmas 2015. We stayed three nights in the loft cabin which was simply beautiful and well maintained. The wooden floors and exposed beams were stunning and the bathroom was classic period style - I particularly liked the complimentary organic toiletries. These cabins would better suit a... More

Lots of room to move around and beautiful countryside to see, which made for one of the most relaxed atmospheres I've ever experienced. Our kids couldn't keep themselves away from the guinea pig enclosure and really enjoyed the animal feed times and swimming in the pool. Management were accommodating, friendly and easy going. Generous facilities when considering the small number... More

Barrington Tops is a remote (no mobile coverage) eco lodge in the BarringtonTops Wilderness Park. If you are scared of snakes this is not the place for you. However if you like the zing that this puts into every walk then definitely a must see place. In the five days that we stayed there, only manages to see snakes twice,... More
