“Probably the Best Hotel in Bundanoon”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

Bundanoon is a historic small and fairly isolated town in the Southern Highlands of NSW, with few amenities. It is a 20-30 minute drive to anywhere with better facilities, such as Moss Vale. If one were looking for somewhere peaceful and idyllic, one might think of Bundanoon, However, if you were staying at the Ravensworth (which is close to the centre of the town) your dreams would be shattered by the constant passing of huge freight trains just a few metres away.

That said, my wife and I stayed here recently, in a slightly decrepit unrenovated room, though it was quite comfortable and it did have most of the mod cons you would expect in a reasonable hotel. However, the walls were paper thin, and we could hear people talking in the next room until well after midnight. That, combined with the noise of the trains ensured we did not really get a good night's rest.

One of the best aspects of the hotel is the breakfast, which is full English (if that's what you want) and was a buffet on Sunday, and individually cooked to order on other days. Another good feature is the free use of a 9-hole golf course at the owner's other property a 15 minute drive away.

So, if you are planning on going to Bundanoon, the Ravensworth is quite a good choice, but don't forget to take your ear muffs.

Room Tip: See if you can book one of the few renovated rooms. They're much nicer.

June, 2013. Didn't see anything resembling the photos of the updated rooms, however, it is clean and comfortable and quite spacious. Air-con works well. The bed and linen was clean and fresh and made for a comfortable night's sleep. The bathroom is roomy, shower works well, but it is tired looking. Nice MOR toiletries. The layout is good so that you can dump your shoes and bags at the entrance without clogging up your room with luggage. I think it is little overpriced by $5-$10, but it is a good alternative if a local bnb is unavailable. It is a higher standard of accommodation than the Bundanoon Hotel, but it doesn't include any extras.

Room Tip: Ask for an updated room if you want more character.

May 2013. Kiama quilting group spent three very enjoyable days at Ravensworth......we have been coming here for years ..and this year we are just so impressed with the renovations the new owners have achieved since purchasing Ravensworth. We experienced wonderful hospitality ,delicious meals, the rooms are being decorated but very impressed with linen and cleanliness of rooms and heating and TV all working not like previous years . We used the conference room and dining room and both rooms beautifully decorated and the fire roaring in dining room made our stay so comfortable ....well done and we will be back next year ...we recommend Ravensworth to all and such a great location to experience the beauty of the Southern Highlands in Autumn

It now has new owners but nothing has really changed. The dining room is much improved but the rooms are 3 star at 4 star+ prices. Disappointed as told it was being revamped but rooms still the same peeling wallpaper and tired bathrooms nothing had changed except the tariff

Has been recently taken on new owners but nothing has changed except the price! Only advantage this Motel has over Bundanoon Hotel is air conditioning and TV in room otherwise only average. No bar or restaurant so have to go to Pub anyway so may as well stay there.

Room Tip: Try for room away from railway line side of building
