This was our 3rd time back to Lavender Majestic and it was even better than the first 2 times. We even requested our favourite Butler (Andrew), who did not disappoint us with his funny banter! And we met Jim this time round too – poor guy had to experience a weird game of Charades but he was a good sport! As per usual, everything is thought of – the fire is going, robes are heated up ready for when you get out of the hot tub, cheese platters are prepared and drinks never empty! Plus ladies, you don't have to clean up after cooking a big dinner. And the massage therapists were some of the best we've had so far. As for local restaurants, we'd recommend Leura Garage for lunch on the way up and Fumo Restaurant in Backheath for dinner on the Fri night. We used Blue Mountains Maxi Taxi service so none of us had to drive – very easy. After experiencing this amazing place 3 times, we worked out it's so much better to go out the Fri night and stay in and cook on the Sat night after the massages and relax into the afternoon ie. you can literally stay in your robe all day! Thanks once again for a great experience!
Had a wonderful night's stay with a friend and four more lovely guests. A truly relaxing experience. The staff were genuinely welcoming – on hand at a moment's notice, yet discreet enough to be unobtrusive. The house was rambling but also cosy; the food provided was rustic and delicious, including breakfast cooked to order. I loved being pampered with an expert facial, followed ay a welcome soak in the spa pool. The high-end toiletries added a real luxury touch. Perfect place to relax, chat and share a laugh and glass or two of wine with a friend, group of friends or – in our case – group of soon-to-be friends. Highly recommend.

Sea change in the experience!
We were 6 girls on this getaway mission. Leaving behind the mommies in us, our kids and our husband’s and tally everyone’s busy calendars was a hard one to get through. Finally we managed to get through all that and managed to book this property 5 months in advance. We knew we had to make this happen! And we had really high expectations of the level of comfort we receive, which was reasonable when you pay a top amount! We wanted to be close to families and not travel too far, and wanted to spend more time at the destination than the journey. So Lavender Majestic was it.
You may have read our earlier review where we weren’t happy about the 3 points I raised (refer below). But oh boy what a sea change there was over the next day. Our fairy (discreet butler, Jim) turned every stone around to make sure our stay was as comfortable as possible.
Our stained bedsheet was promptly changed after a sincere apology. Turn down fairy arrived in the night, ensured all the rooms smelled beautiful, the fire place was on and the room was toasty for us to play some games in the lounge room in the night, he even left goodies on each of the beds for us rejuvenating souls. The owner of the property, Nicky offered us a bottle of bubbly to compensate for the spa, thoughtful indeed.
Jim, our fairy / butler served us wine and cheese as we lounged in during the day. Next morning he served us breakfast on the patio, which was just beautiful. We loved every bit of that morning breakfast, birds chirping, fresh air, soulful food, our fairy and surrounded with friends - blessing. If we could give 11 out of 10, we would.
One of the girls requested that the Jacuzzi in the bath tub be filled at 7 in the morning before she has breakfast, and our fairy ensured it was done, with candles, scrubs and perfect temperature water, another 11 on 10 experiences. We were so impressed with his services that we offered him our bubbly we received from the owner.
Jim’s special touches, attention to detail, being our lovely photographer, ensuring our experience was all we had expected and more, we never really wanted to leave this place. A big thank you to Nicky for opening up her lovely home & for all the little extras that made it so extra special.
Our weekend away will be treasured forever.
Warm regards, The Girls, Xx

It’s our first night here, hoping for a beautiful weekend getaway with girls. Not impressed with:
1. Bed has big stain. Can’t seem to attach the pic.
2. No turn down service before bed (only the lit candles were blown). Turn-down fairy had not visited our room, no arranging of the bedding and no leaving of chocolates and spa products.
3. After arrival, we were told - Spa is not working for the whole of weekend. To be compensated with some bubbly.
Not thoroughly impressed. This weekend hasn’t started on a good note.
Let’s see what’s to come over the rest of the weekend.
From the moment you set foot on the property till the end it’s perfect in every way. The relaxing essential oils oozing throughout the house just makes you stop and breath. We came with excitement and left with expectations exceeded. Filled with hilarious moments and some solid conversation we had the BEST time, the most relaxing weekend EVER. Andrew was perfectly matched to the needs of our group with a wonderful sense of discretion and a bloody good sense of humour. Very hospitable very professional. Thank you from all us girls.
Lavender Majestic is absolutely beautiful. Having a butler made such a difference and the choices for high tea, wine tasting & massage were just amazing. The hen was extremely happy and the rest of the girls too.
There were seven of us for my 50th Birthday weekend - had a blast. From arrival to leaving we had an amazing stay. We self catered, and our gorgeous butler Mandy looked after us so well. Serving our cheese platter, prepping the spa and providing warmed robes as we got out in the cool night air. The property is an amzing mix of old and new, perfectly decorated, spacious and cosy at the same time. We all had a massage each in the treatment room which was very relaxing, and walked into Katoomba for a little retail therapy. Our evening were full of laughter, chats and games (and a few drinks!!) by the fire. Nicky who we booked with was so lovely - nothing too much trouble and all my questions answered! Highly recommended!!
enjoyed it sooo much, just laughed and relaxed all weekend, beautiful house, butler is a fantastic idea, recommend highly
