We had the infamous (?) villa behind the garage as we booked at the last minute - last in, worst dressed. The villa is nicely decorated, clean and well appointed. The queen sized bed is comfortable, there are bath robes to use, a dishwasher, toaster, microwave, Bose mini sound system, De'Longhi coffee pod machine and internet cable. The surroundings are...

We stayed here in October 2014. The villa was very nice and the kitchenette equipped with state-of-the-art appliances. Breakfast was provisions in the small villa - very nice. However, unfortunately, the spa tub was not working and for us, this is a prime factor in our choice of lodging. The reason I have given two stars is we had a... More

This beautifully set property was a warm welcome after travelling inter-state. Spacious rooms with lots of light were inviting and provided a secluded opportunity to rest before taking on the wineries in the Valley. Greta and Tim were great hosts and helped meet all our needs as well as pointing us to re-select a few estates. I'm looking forward to... More

If you pay attention to any of the negative reviews on this site you are in jeopardy of missing out on a truly special experience. Lovely scenery , away from busy roads , yet near to everything . The villas are nestled into the bush in the most subtle way . Tim and Gretha s attention to detail is second... More

Because of a mix up at another B&B, we found ourselves at Araluen Lodge at the last minute. Gretha was so accomodating and helpful after our long 4 hour drive. We booked in for 2 nights but wished we were able to stay longer. The room was large and the bed huge and comfortable. Everything was very clean, and having... More

wow...luxury villa & lodge....a massive dissapointment.. You see a photo of a majestic villa on the net, you book it and what you get is an inside room with a broken door which you can see inside from the outside, no keys. (you can help yourself into my room if you are a guest of the lodge anytime you like!)...we... More

My husband and I recently had a fantastic 2 night stay at Araluen lodge in September. The villa was clean and very well appointed. Heated floors and towel rails in the bathroom made for a pretty awesome spa. The bed was large and comfy. We enjoyed relaxing both inside and out on the deck watching the antics of the resident...

Had a great weekend at Araluen Lodge. Great room, great setting and Gretha's hosting skills were excellent. Felt welcomed and comfortable. Winery and restaurant suggestions worked for me. The continental breakfast was good in a sun filled breakfast room on a winter morning overlooking the well kept gardens.

The area the villas are in is beautiful. Rolling hills and wonderful Australian bush. However, we did not see much of it as our villa (number 3) was tucked behind the garage with very little outlook. Some of the others were on high ground with balconies and I could only imagine their view, but not for us. Our villa itself... More

I had organised a surprise night away for my husband & I to relax.... My husband had no idea we were staying over night somewhere and as we drove into Araluen Lodge we drove into an Industrial area which was their personal shed with work utes and nowhere to really park.
