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

We arrived freezing from the golf course at 3:30 Friday. Our rooms were ready for us. I love the modern rooms at Briars! you could live there. You walk in on one level and the lake view is a delight. The lower level or the room is a cosy lounging area with a round table cupboards and hidden fridge. Outside... More

To review this establishment it is necessary to split it into two sections. The accomodation is owned by a different group to the restaurant. Our room was of good quality, $159 double. The bathroom could do with an upgrade, fittings and shower could certainly be better. To eat at the restaurant which is in a different building but only 20... More

One of the main reasons for us to stay at Briar's was - apart from the room - the dinner at the restaurant. But times change, sometimes not for the better. The list of appetisers has shrunk to 4, and the previously innovative selection has disappeared. The vegetables/salad selection was equally poor. But the worst part was my crumbed fish... More

Whilst the room was clean and neatly presented it was just a motel room although the split level gave it an upmarket feeling and more space if more than just two people. The issue was the heating as it was the start of winter with a cold snap that Bowral is well known for - the problem was the wall... More

The room itself was extremely well designed and appointed. The bistro within the inn however was quite disappointing and would only rate as ordinary "pub food" - although the staff were friendly and polite.

We stayed two nights for a friends' daughters wedding, the staff, the room, everything was great. We had dinner at the Inn on Friday night, fantastic food, great staff, the place was packed.
