Often it's the attention to detail that can make such a difference when you stay somewhere. Without spoiling anything - I was really surprised with the little extra 'things' that went into making our stay romantic and enjoyable. On arrival our room was heated up and the log fire was ready to go. The accomodation is clean, cosy, and the... More

It was so lovely to receive this feedback KKAdventures - it is really pleasing to know that the little extra 'surprises' we put in the Cabins made your stay with us just that bit more special. What a shame you had to squeeze in some sight seeing as well :) We look forward to welcoming you back again when next... More

It's the perfect little getaway amongst nature to cosy up with loved ones and relax in pure comfort. The fire place made it extra romantical. We would like to return one day with our kids and enjoy the surrounding area as a family.

The room was cozy and clean, with the heating already on upon arrival. Clean, private and really enjoyable. The hotel is a stone throw away from some brilliant eateries, 1 km from some of the most breath taking views the mountains have to offer, and the people are friendly. A definite return from me!

We are so pleased Angela that you enjoyed your stay with us.

Its unfortunate the weather didn't allow you to do much bush walking or sight seeing - however, we are pleased you still managed to have a great time during your stay with us. Sometimes bad weather is a good excuse to simply stay in your Cabin in front of the log fire, enjoy a luxurious spa bath and just unwind.... More

3rd trip to the Couple Cabins and not a disappointment. Pros - close to great mountain bush walks / lookouts (with a spa bath to recover!), quite, clean, nice job on refurbishment, log fire, close to everything, helpful staff. Cons - don't have any, great stay.

Got to love it when a guest only has pros to list about their stay - so thank you! It is also nice when a guest who has stayed before notices the refurbishment we have had done recently - we are pleased you like the result. Yes, bush walking is great here in the Mountains especially when you know you... More

What an amazing quiet and beautiful place to stay and rejuvenate. From the minute we checked in Julie was lovely and gave some great advice on local walks around the mountains. Our possum cabin was so cosy with the heater already turned on and the fire ready to go. It was warm, ambient and we even found some yummy rocky... More

Shame we are only staying one night. This spot offers seclusion for couples, family holidaying amongst the most picturesque bush land setting you can imagine. We stayed in Possums, couples accommodation, these offer wood fires, fully equipped kitchen, large comfy King bed and sitting area, all with the most fantastic bush setting. The cabins retreats are situated away from each... More

We only stayed one night, but would definitely stay again. The sweet candies and notes welcomed us. The bathroom was appointed with extra plush towels and toiletries. Our own little private possum came out at dusk to be fed his little packet of food left for him by the owners. Our room had a heater, a fireplace with plenty of... More

Very clean and comfortable property. The gas fire kept us warm and toasty through the very cold July weather. The kids loved the games room, badminton, tennis, heated pool, but their favourite was toasting marshmallows over the fire pit. Great walking tracks in the area.

Yes our new gas log fires are fabulous for warming our Family Lodges - and swimming in the heated pool in Winter is a real novelty for the kids. There is nothing like sitting around an open fire toasting marshmallows - especially when the weather is cold outside! Thank you Catherine for writing this review of your stay with us... More
