Attended a Christmas dinner at the hotel. It was nice however the Christmas hype of yesteryear was missing- we previously loved the Christmas trees outside of the hotel and in the grounds and at the front gate - all missing now. But for going into the hotel u wouldn't have known Christmas in July was being celebrated. At $69 per... More

It was to treat ourselves to a wonderful xmas in July dinner and we booked the best room in the place for our... More

Family of 4 stayed for 2 nights, including Xmas in July dinner. Hotel has a lovely 'old world' charm that really is hard to find in Australia. Yes you need to overlook the fact it's not perfect - old age comes to us all. It can be a bit chilly (bring a cardigan) and bathrooms are dated (but spotlessly clean).... More

We stayed at The Robertson Hotel last weekend in a party of four. I'll try to summarise as best I can without writing a 10000-word essay, but I'm sure I'll get carried away! Please bear with me, readers. My husband and I are very familiar with this lovely old place, having visited many times with our children when it was... More

Once called Fountaindale Grand Manor, and before that Ranelagh House, this property has reinvented itself as the Robertson Hotel (I understand they kept the monogrammed dinner service from RH and we're trying to come up with a name that would let them keep using it). Unfortunately, the new name makes it easily confused with the Robertson Inn (a pub, often... More

I recently stayed at the Robertson Hotel with my Mum and Sister. We booked through Bookings.com and couldn't have been more happy with the information and communication we received prior to our stay. We had a family room with ensuite which was everything we needed. The decor was updated but in-tune with the old world charm of the building with... More

When learning that a family wedding was happening at this hotel we were excited. We immediately booked a room as required a private bathroom. We emailed our booking as there was no answer on the phone. We then attempted numerous times to confirm. Many family members tried the same. We arrived on the day to find that the room we... More

Before this visit I hadn't heard of Robertson... a quaint little town where there are little gems scattered amongst the highlands. From the cheese factory, the corner bakery, vineyards, the Robertson hotel (recently renovated) for romantic getaways or weddings and the Roundhouse Yurt cottage which I luckily stumbled across in my search for a unique place to stay. I will... More

recently stayed for one night by myself (as part of a school/parent group) and was so taken by this beautiful hotel and its staff. I would definitely recommend for a girls weekend or a romantic escape ... drinks in the garden before a delicious dinner in the dining room, then retiring to the bar in front of the fireplace for...

A charming and historic hotel. Experience the great service from Lottie at reception. Don't miss seeing the railway station at the bottom of the beautiful gardens. Enjoy local walks including to the cheese factory. Nap in your large room then go downstairs and sit by the crackling fires and enjoy drinks and great dinner. Relax.
