Really enjoyed our stay. King room was well appointed with lots of space. Fantastic outlook over the grounds and lake. We were entertained by a family of ducks, Mum, Dad and 10 tiny ducklings. Only 1 hour drive from the Hills district in Sydney. Breakfast at the adjoining Briars Inn was average, a positive was we didn't have to drive... More

In writing this review I am only referring to the Bistro not the accommodation. We have stayed at Briars for many years and always enjoyed very comfortable accommodation and a great meal in the bistro . For our final night of our holiday we decided to return to Briars on our way home. The accommodation once again was as we... More

The bistro was bustling and busy (always a good sign), but the positives ended there. The roast pork was dry and the vegetables were either undercooked or cold. The chef recommended that the salmon be cooked medium rare - well if that was their version of medium rare, I'd hate to see what we'll done looked like. Thought that it... More

It was as usual great food, service, atmosphere and company. The only point I think that needs to be watched is the barman with the glasses needs to watch the patrons who are next to be served and not just serve the next person to arrive at the bar. That's it, other than that a great afternoon was had by... More

We stayed on a Friday and Saturday night in July and were not sure of what to expect due to mixed reviews. Anyway we were very pleasantly surprised. The room itself was super clean, very large and well designed with large doors opening onto a private terrace and lawns leading down to the lake. The location next to the pub... More

In cold and windy weather Bowral is still good for a conference. The Briars has very helpful staff and very good catering for a conference. It is important to have food that keeps members alert all day. All good there and good quantities too. Plunger coffee was average, could be better beans and made stronger. Dinner menu was very good... More

This is a great little spot, conveniently situated just outside of the township of Bowral. The rooms are comfortable and, although a bit dated now (you have to stand in the bath to have a shower), they are clean and well designed. Everything has been thought of, from extra blankets and pillows, to biscuits to have with your tea, and... More

I love this place. Peaceful,close to both Moss Vale and Bowral. The pub is next door and has wonderful food. The bed is very comfortable. The room is large with a good sitting room looking out on the peaceful grounds. I love hearing the coot and the fountain.

We enjoyed everything about our 2 night stay. The room was spacious and very nice, clean and cosy even though it was very cold outside. Was nice to be able to eat at the restaurant on site and be able to have a drink by the open fire in the old pub. Every room looks out over a lake where... More
