It was overall a great little weekend getaway. Perfect for relaxing, with the lookouts surrounding the suburb. Not too far from the Three Sisters & Wentworth Falls. You have the Scenic World within the Three Sisters and you are also a couple hours away from the Jenolan Caves. Night time is beautiful in the cottage.

We booked 3 adjacent 2 bedroom cottages at Federation Gardens for a family weekend in November. (Ourselves, our 3 adult children with partners and 5 grand children.) The whole experience was excellent. Robyn was most personable and helpful without being intrusive. The cottages were comfortable and well appointed. The range of facilities made for an easy and comfortable weekend which...

My family have just returned from Christmas at Federation Gardens. We had a wonderful time with so much do on site or in the surrounding area. The hosts were friendly and helpful and we certainly felt welcome and at home. My family will be very happy to stay here again. Thanks for a relaxing and stress free Christmas.

This is a nice place to stay in the blue mountains, Close to Sydney. The house we stayed in was spacious and clean, but could have a bit of a more modern touch (Pictures and especially the lamps). But we loved the area and especially we enjoyed a nightwalk watching out for glowworms (very interesting and providing a lot of...

Overall I think its not good value for money. Kitchen was not so good. Bathroom was just ok. AC is only in living area so we had tough time in bedroom. There were no fans either. The bbq and ovan facility in common area was in very poor shape. This ancient ovan had spider webs inside. I wouldn't stay here...

I am sorry 'bd792017' that your stay with us did not meet your expectations. It was unfortunate that your stay coincided with the heat wave being experienced by Sydney and the Mountains earlier this month as normally the air-conditioning in our Lodges is more than adequate. Being the Christmas period our BBQ and oven were used extensively by our many...

Love how you can feed possums next to your cabin at night. Enjoyed feeding birds with seeds given by reception in the mornings. Beautiful set up of bonfire, heated pool, BBQ area and games for all to enjoy. The cabins were my favourite as they are in their own setting with beautiful views and peace and security. Loved feeling like...

Our experience was very laid back and enjoy every minute staying there. It was Exactly what every holiday should be, somewhere to just zone out of all the busyness. The grounds are well kept, everything clean and tidy. Perfect for families and couple retreats . Will definitely be back when we visit the Blue Mountains.
