We had a fantastic lodge which was beautifully furnished with beautiful views. Check-in was easy, it was all set up for self service, with a magnificent cooked breakfast delivered at the time we requested. Romantic and relaxing stay, highly recommended.

My partner took me here for our anniversary in 2013 and it honestly took my breath away. Everything was perfect and the room was very cosy and romantic. We enjoyed using the spa and having in-room massages. My partner ordered the cheese platter and had arranged to have rose petals arranged on the bed and both we're done beautifully. I... More

This is a must for the romantic weekend getaway. Cosy setting tucked away in the mountains surrounded by nature. Relax and unwind in the luxurious spa and feast on a mouth watering continental breakfast. A return visit a must!

My husband and I stayed at Linden Gardens in February and I must say it was perfect. We stayed in two different cottages and I could hardly find a fault in either of them. The cottages are absolutely gorgeous. The owners have done a spot on job creating a perfect romantic setting. The king size bed and linens are so... More

My girlfriend booked a night in the gallery suite for my birthday and I must say the room was absolutely beautiful and very well presented for our stay. The breakfast was delicious and loved everything about it. The only big issue we had was the front door wouldn't lock, when we arrived and picked up the key after reception hours... More

Hi Igor, we are really pleased you found your room beautiful and enjoyed our scrumptious breakfast! Regarding the door, we are very sorry you had a problem with that, we have jumped on to that right away and had it fixed. It was unfortunately caused by a little bit of movement in the door due to expansion and contraction from... More

My wife and I stayed in the Garden Retreat. Lovely room, very well kitted out with a spa in the main room. The foxtel TV with movie channels was a really nice touch! The scenery was really beautiful, even though there were a number of rooms on the property it felt remote and private. We had an inroom massage as... More
