We had originally booked a weekend away that we had to cancel at the last minute due to unforseen circumstances. Lynda and Peter were most accomodating in understanding and changing the booking. We were then able to enjoy a wonderful weekend in the most relaxing surroundings complete with wood fire, hot spa and spacious accomodation.

We decided to have a mid week break and for a change headed for the hills instead of south to the usual Margaret River area. It was a glorious drive through the hills, everything was so green. We stopped off in York as we hadn't been there for a while. Great town and heaps of history. We arrived mid afternoon... More

Just spent an amazing weekend at Black Wattle Retreat in the Belvedere Cottage. From the moment we (friend and I) drove in the gate looking at the quirky little sites along the way I had a good feeling about this place. We were welcomed by the lovley host Lynda who had everything ready for us on our arrival. The cottage... More

Thank you Sian and Simon for coming to stay. I wish you had mentioned the spa, its so simple to turn it down a notch. I generally show people at check in but as it was a last minute arrival and I was not there, we skipped that part. p.s. my name is LYNDA. See you again More

Instruction were very helpful. We stayed here when we had a hot air balloon flight booked. Owner is lovely. We had a massive, well equipped house that would be prefect for a whole family. Loved walking around the surrounding bush. Beautiful, relaxing spa. What a great weekend! We will definitely be back :D

We obeyed the sign that said 'if no one answers follow the balcony around to the right'.

I have laboured over how to respond to this review. Quite simply, I made a mistake with the arrival date of the guests. I would NEVER not make arrangements to meet someone when they arrive, if I could not be here, I would organise for someone to do that job, its just manners. What these guests did was to break...
