“WHAT A FIND!”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

After receiving our gift voucher for The Bower from our clued up bridal party, we knew we'd be in for a treat! AND WE WERE NOT DISAPPOINTED! As teachers we were keen for some down time, with minimal thought required and we got that and so much more. It's funny how the little things make the difference but they really do... The music playing as we walked into our Bower, our electric blankets on, fire ready to be lit, and an amazing spread ready for breakfast, not to mention the best bath tub I have ever had the pleasure to soak in, we knew we were in the right place. The privacy that comes with each Bower being tucked away within the bushland is second to none. We loved the local walks and the unique experience of getting to know the friendly local wildlife.We truly had the rejuvenation we were after.. We will be spreading the word!

Hi guys,
We're so very glad you enjoyed your stay courtesy of the bridal party. No doubt [in your profession] you were relieved to have a 'kid free zone' and a secluded place to de-stress after the big day !
Thanks so much for your support and recommendations. We'd love to see you back for a significant anniversary ??
Kind regards,
Mark & The BowerBirds

We had friends recommend this place and it didn't disappoint. It was a such a tranquil little get away. If you are after a romantic and sneaky get away for a couple days then this is the place for you.

Mark, the owner was a pleasure to deal with and went out of his way to accommodate us.

Thanks and we will be back again soon.

It was a pleasure to 'host' you guys [even though as you know we don't see much of our guests [between arrival & departure].
We'd be very happy to see [and any of your friends] for another romantic getaway at The Bower.

5 STARS is not enough to rate The Bower. No words can do justice to describe the beauty of THe Bower. You just have to book and stay yourself to understand what we mean.We stayed at The Red Bower twice for a WHOLE WEEK, committed do return EVERY YEAR until Mark and Sue retire,
Mark and Sue are wonderful hosts with attention to details, right down to generous breakfast provisions, good range of T2 teas. T2 teas, mercedes in the tea world!!!! coffee machine and pods, AND the CRISPY CROISSANTS WITH JAM!!! **sigh**
Just love the two shower heads, big DEEP spa looking out to garden, heated towel rails, romantic music playing thru the speakers in bathroom...
if anyone is reading this, stop reading ! you're wasting time. get on Bower Website and Book a weekend. Be forewarned....weekend is not enough !!!

Room Tip: we stayed in The RED Bower only.....looks really lovely thru the bush as you drive to the RED Bower...

I can't praise The Bower too much, it is a special place and if you are travelling nearby make time to stop here. We stopped for 2 nights but wish we had booked longer, from the welcome by Mark to the first step into the "cottage" everything was perfect.
They try to think of everything you might need from food in the fridge to music playing as you walk in, it's all there.
Then there is the peace and solitude as nobody bothers you and your nearest neighbour is 100 mtrs away. The wildlife is all around you and the walks are well laid out and a must do, just ask for a map from Mark.
To sum up we will return even though we live in UK as this place is a one off!

Thanks Loftylad,

Many of our guests say they'd wish they'd stayed longer and we really hope that the Bower continues to justify that ! Hopefully the wildlife wasn't too close by, and was well mannered ! :-)

We'd love to host you again on your next trip, and the pricing with our multi-night packages [available from our own website] is designed to make longer stays more cost-effective for our guests.

Could not have asked for a more relaxing, romantic setting for our 'Babymoon'. The Bower was just perfect and we really appreciated the extra special touches such as the candles and the welcome breakfast hamper. We stayed in every night for a BBQ as we enjoyed being in the room and the bush setting so much. It most definitely deserves the 5 star rating from other reviewers. We will definitely go back!!

I'm really must apologise to all the other hotels, resorts and accommodation that I have given 5 stars to. On this scale you are now only worth four. Or perhaps, it would be fairer to allocate 6 stars to the Bower At Broulee.

Just read the other reviews below; this place is just the perfect haven of tranquility, beauty and luxury that all my other travel choices all fail to replicate.

The welcome, the privacy, the quality of the fittings, the decor, the bed, the bathroom, the fire, the breakfast, the veranda, the touches, all faultless...unless you nit pick the nits of nits.

A heated bathroom floor anyone? Nah, don't do it, leave it as it is. I love this place, as much as the Kookaburras love their sausages...so be watchful when you fire up the barbie.

Hi Fozzybronze,
We're humbled by your very generous feedback. I guess we took a punt when we designed The Bower and [against conventional wisdom] decided to space each building at least 100m apart and retain enough vegetation to maintain a screen for the privacy of our guests. This does seem to make the degree of privacy we can offer somewhat unique and as you've observed, we did invest heavily [some told us we'd over-capitalized] in build/finish quality so we could offer the highest level of luxury to our guests.
Your feedback is very much appreciated !!
Kind regards,
Sue, Mark & the team
