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.
