I booked online out of season for a last-minute weekend out of town. A cabin in the mountains is usually just the same as the next, but Madison's was a delight. We were met at check-in by the lovely manager who, dressed in wellies, showed nothing but 5- star hospitality. We picked up a loaded basket for breakfast, included in... More

We are a family with 2 young girls, aged 7 & 10. We stayed at the train carriage for 3 nights, and the girls were thrilled to be staying in the carriage. The carriage was spacious with a double decked bed for the kids. Feeding the Alpacas and looking for eggs were activities the girls looked forward to everyday. The... More

We are a family with 3 teenage boys and we all stayed in a cabin very comfortably..something I was a bit nervous about before arriving. From the warm greeting as we pulled up the drive, to the end of our stay, everything was perfect. The breakfast basket was fantastic with cereals, milk, bacon, sausages, fresh eggs, mushrooms, tomatoes, bread, juice... More

We just spent a wet weekend ay Madison's Retreat, but cannot hold them responsible for the weather. We had an excellent maintained, roomy cabin with a wood fire place. Everything we needed was thought of, and the people that run it are so nice and helpful. It's a lovely spot in the forest in the Blue Mountains with all sorts... More

We took our train-obsessed son for his 5th birthday in September as a surprise. We had extended family turn up as a surprise too who stayed in a cabin. There were many squeals of delight about staying in a train carriage, let alone a bunk bed kitted out as a double decker bus. Which boy wouldnt love this! Add to... More

Not sure I have ever given 5 star for accommodation before. I'd probably rate this 4.5 star deducting 0.5 just because of the price. In saying that I could not find a thing wrong with this place. We stayed 1 night in cottage number 3. The place in under new management - Fiona and Mark. From the moment we turned... More

We booked Madison's for a weekend stay primarily because it was close to a function we were attending. We'd stay again. spacious cabins, lots of homey touches and the hosts are attentive and friendly. The breakfast hamper was generous, fresh and tasty.

After reading some bizarre reviews on this site from other people who had stayed here previously, I did not know what to expect. So this is what we did get 1. Fabulous converted railway carriage that had a super comfy king size bed, a London double deck bus bunk that the kids loved and a queen size sofa. Reverse cycle... More

We stayed in the refurbished train carriage with our 6 and 3 year old. The bunk bed was a hit and the novelty of staying in a train kept the kids amused for the whole weekend. The heated spa was used daily and many games of hide and seek we're played amongst the grounds. Highly recommended!

We had a wonderful time at madison's. Loved the farm and Alpacas, the heated spa was a big hit with my 5 YO. Only problem we had was there should be a curtain at the carriage window walkway where the bathroom is. Otherwise the bedroom & loungeroom carriages were very warm, maybe needs heating in the kitchen bathroom area -... More
