“Relaxing Getaway”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

This 5 star hotel is a great base to explore the Blue Mountains while relaxing in the comforts of a high quality hotel. The restaurant provides an excellent choice of meals, especially the degustation menus. The indoor pool and spa facilities were also very good.
The rooms were comfortable with a very high sleep quality.

Hotel is in a great location but not five star.
Thought the lounge could do with refurbishing .
Was a bit upset when we paid top dollar for one nights stay and in the morning my daughter asked for a Cappuccino and was told it would cost extra .

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for reviewing your recent experience at Lilianfels Resort and Spa.

We are constantly working on projects in the Hotel, and the lounge is on the agenda for early next Year, whilst still looking very impressive we are going through all areas in the Hotel.

We have now installed Espresso machines on our breakfast buffet, but like in most Hotels we do charge for Coffee’s not produced on these machines.

I hope you will understand my position, and I will be able to welcome you back in the near future.

With thanks,

Ralf Bruegger

One night stay with a friend and a young child. Luxurious, large period lounge area with two separate fireplaces, though difficult to get service and tables cleared. Lovely looking room with matching pink and white bed curtains and wallpaper, however, not for the faint-hearted. Lovely large bathroom with nice products. We had to make several reminder phone calls for the same housekeeping items. There is a sense of luxury and comfort in the resort and spa. Breakfast is one of my favourite indulgences, breakfast here is just OK, but I was well informed in advance by other Tripadvisors and longer staying guests, so I was not disappointed by expectation. Locks on bathroom door would be a useful addition. Overall a nice experience.

This hotel is a pleasant journey out of Sydney into the Blue Mountains and is very well located close to ECHO point and outstanding views across the Blue Mountains. Staff was helpful. Valet parking is extra but useful as they are on a confined site. Our room was adequate. The hotel has an indoor and outside pool. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious. There is an onsite restaurant but it was not open on the Sunday night we were there. It is very well reviewed but seems very expensive.

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for reviewing your recent experience at Lilianfels Resort and Spa.

It’s great to read that you liked the Hotel and our facilities. Yes, Darleys is closed on Sundays and Mondays, but we have Echoes across the road and Lilianfels lounge if you like to stay within the resort.

Have a great week, and I am looking forward to welcome you again soon.

We had a romantic long weekend up at Lilianfels without the kids.

The property is excellent, rooms fine, and bed so comfy we spent most of our time there ;

For mine the only downside was perceived value - it is expensive to stay there. We didn't bother with the breakfast (went into town instead) and tried the Devonshire Tea one afternoon and it felt like they were skimping. Not major issues, but when you are paying over $400 a night we expected the opulence to extend the whole way.

Overall we had a good time, and would consider going back if we could snag a deal.

Great location but very mixed levels of service, some staff had their finger on the pulse and were only too happy to help, others you felt had no clue. For example we had difficulties with a dinner reservation but amazing service reserving a car spot. Trying to spend Saturday evening in front of the fire with a pre dinner glass of wine was a nightmare as there was a function on, non-hotel guests flooded the living room and noisily took over the whole space. This made it hard to get service, hard to hear my husband chat and no access to the cozy fire as function guests crowded around both open fires. Certainly not relaxing. This happened on my last visit as well, but a smaller group and slightly less invasive.

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for reviewing your recent experience at Lilianfels Resort and Spa.

I am sorry to hear that your experience was dampened by the functions group on both visits. Most of the times it’s a wedding having some drinks before they move into their functions room for the dinner.

I hope you will accept my apologies, and I am looking forward to welcome you again soon.

This place is so lovely in winter, the fireplace cracking while you sit and read the morning paper. Sipping on your first coffee.. The rooms are very nice indeed, it feels like you have been sent back in time, there are a few things that should be replaced, but this gives the feel and it has the modern necessaries. The back drop is breath taking.. Waking up in the morning and seeing the fog clear over our trees! it is something that you cannot replica back in the city.
You are only a 5 to 10 min drive away from the local shops, cafe's etc or another 15mins to the trendy Leura shopping strip... Wonderful cafe's and Deli's there as well to stop for lunch.
The staff are very nice and accommodating and the SPA is wonderful.
We visit here every year for a weekend retreat..
