I doubt if this place has changed all that much in 100 years. Lovely old building. Rooms were comfortable. Not as well maintained as it could be, but that's reflected in the price. A great weekend away.

Lovely old grand hotel. Cosy fireplaces. Great spot to chat with other guests. Nice rooms. Great heating for winter. Friendly staff. Very Quiet and peaceful away from the rat race. Mountain road a bit nerve racking.

We were promised the feeling of the grandeur of yesteryear. We were given that, but it was not polished. It was like on a budget, at the same time being charged polished prices. We do not like being taken advantage of money wise and that is what happened. The rooms were warm and comfortable, but it was the detail that... More

I have always loved Jenolin, especially staying at Jenolin house. Once the day trippers head home the valley becomes a quiet wonderland. We sat by the open fire, took apples to feed the possums and had twilight walks by the lake. Many folk criticise caves house for the slightly rundown infrastructure, but I love the old world feel, and if... More

Dorm room warm and dry but shabby and common room in need of a good clean. The caves are amazing. Vist was well worth the trip but the whole place has just a bit of a Faulty towers feel. The bill for the kids accommodation was more than the bill for the room ???

Very comfortable cottages. Beautiful spot set back in bush area close to Janolen Caves. Lovely and warm in the cold weather. Loads of wild life to see and a great playground for the kids. Good self catering kitchen facilities although lacking frying pan and dishwashing liquid as we had to clean up after ourselves before leaving. Otherwise we had a... More

We stayed at Caves House as it has always been a dream of ours. The room was very nice, clean with an old world charm. But that is where it ends, the rest of the Caves House needs so much work to bring it up to an acceptable stand, considering the price they charge. The carpet in the corridors are... More
