Best place I've stayed in Tamworth! As a young lady travelling for business on her own it's important for me to find somewhere clean, comfortable and convenient. Sandy and Peter offer just that. The rooms are huge and each one decorated in a different theme. The common areas are also great, with a beautiful garden and an upstairs dining/living room... More

Always love staying here. The hosts are so welcoming. The (Japanese) room is great flowing onto the garden. Lounge dining upstairs is very funky. Nice relaxed dinner and quiet night. Fantastic breakfast the next day. Highly recommended. Located on the edge of town but still close to most town features. Amazing garden.

Peter and Sandy offered us a sublime experience. If you're after an escape from the city, a little retreat somewhere away from the big smoke and looking to be well-taken care of, don't think twice about staying here. We stayed in the Dungeon. I surprised my partner with it, and it sure did the job! The room is a ball.... More

Thanks Phil and Chris thanks for your lovely review, we also hate that typical smell, look and feel of the usual motels rooms and have tried very hard to avoid them and do something a little different on all levels. It was a pleasure to meet you both and we do hope our paths will cross again. More

After years of trying different motels in Tamworth we have finally found much much more than we ever expected. The Retreat is like an oasis in the desert. Spotless, uniquely themed and beautifully finished room, flawless 5 star service, lovingly cooked food a gastronomic delight and no main road truck noise at night!
