My partner & I decided on a weekend away during school holidays to wind down and relax. We chose the hideaway as it was one of the fair priced options at this time of year, it was central to most places we wanted to get to and looked beautiful. We were not dissapointed! We felt as though we had the... More

Very average room for a premium price. When you pay this much for a room you do not expect to find that there are more coat hangers than parking spaces - that the room and bathroom are basic, that there is no real milk, no tissues, no bottle opener, only a mirror in the bathroom. I could go on -... More

This property needs a lot of work to be acceptable. Breakfast was included in the price, we chose to go elsewhere after the first morning. The property looks impressive and the rooms are designed to a view over the mountains. The pool looks inviting and well maintained. A feature is lots of books in rooms and common areas for those...

The retreat building itself looks lovely, it has a wonderful country feel to it, and the view from the rooms (I believe all the rooms overlook the backdrop) is beautiful. It is extremely peaceful overlooking the Blue Mountains and listening to the birds echo through the trees. The main areas of the accommodation are well presented, and the fireplace with... More

Room was large and clean but very old fashioned with furniture and fittings needing a total update. The views are very good. Parking is shockingly inadequate and it took 10 mins to get our car out from the hopeless mess of badly parked cars. The place is overpriced for what it provides and we were very disappointed with the whole... More

Rooms were basic, and the whole place is in need of refurbishment. Breakfast was included and was not great. Home made bread was inedible. Not at all what we thought we were getting for nearly $200 per night.

This stunning homely accommodation is perfect to get away from the bustling city. I stayed 2 nights and went home completely recharged and rejuvenated. The room opens out to the Blue mountains , a lovely pool area and the beautiful sounds of the Australian bush. Crickets sing at night and the morning greets you with the sounds of roosters and...

My daughter and I planned a mother daughter weekend and I booked a hotel on WOTIF, I put in 4 star as the criteria as you may know you have to pay for a mystery hotel before you actually see it. My daughter and I arrived at the Hideaway at about 4pm on the 9 July 2015, the place was... More

At first my wife had reservations of staying here as the reception and building looked bit older and as others have noted quirky or as having old school charm, but after we switched from upstairs to downstairs room and enjoyed our first 2 nights as we originally booked we added an extra night as we relaxed and appreciated the hotel...
