A very quiet location set in amongst the trees and water features (creek,pond and fountain). the staff are very friendly and relaxed. there was a log fireplace in the room a nice touch. a great time was enjoyed. The day spa was a real treat if you are into that. I would have loved to jump in the very clean... More

We have been looking for a good place to go for a short getaway close to Sydney. This was perfect. Didn't take long to get there but felt like we were a long way away. The cottage was very private. You couldn't see any other cottages from ours. Bathroom had a lovely spa bath and a big shower. It was... More

We stayed here just for one night for my husbands birthday and had an afternoon of pampering in the spa treatments rooms followed by dinner. All of it was wonderful and relaxing and we can't wait to return.

The room (lake view) was amazing, with a gas fire, balcony/day bed - just wonderful and very much up to five star standards. The meal and dining experience was top notch - and the property itself is beautiful and quiet. For a five star winter weekend getaway from Sydney, it is a winner. I'll definitely go back for a summer... More

Visited for our babymoon staying in the one bedroom cottage. The rooms are beautifully decorated and very private which is surprising considering how close the other cottages are and were clean and relatively comfortable with two large balconies. The accommodation and facilities are to 5 star standard and in line with the prices charged however the service provided at Bells... More

Had just one night here as a special break for my husband and I. Was just wonderful in everyday. Food at the restaurant was SPECULAR! Lovely park light setting, lovely part of the country. Wish we could have spent a week there!

Bells is nice. The rooms are specious and everything works but I'm not convinced it's worth 5 stars. It doesn't have a wow like some other 5 star places we have stayed. The small details let it down. The room was very cold when we first entered. The air con didn't appear to work correctly. No coffee machine. The torch,... More

We only happened across this hotel when exploring the north coast one sunday drive and booked a February weekend away. The service was top notch, we stayed in one of the larger 2 storey apartments which was lovely. The food was of course amazing...... not sure if we would return, not due to the quality of the hotel but more... More
