“Some TLC required.....”
Reviewed June 12, 2012

Booked this Retreat for my husband, daughter and partner for 2 nights over Queens Birthday weekend. We were very disappointed with the decor, both rooms had rotten carpet in the corner of the room at the back of the showers. This had been covered with a piece of carpet with a rubbish bin on top. Carpet throughout the hotel was in need of some cleaning. I had booked for cooked breakfast, and the choice was very limited. The bacon arrived under cooked and the poached eggs over cooked. We feel the whole Retreat requires some maintenance (TLC) to keep it up the standard of a good location.

the location was a little bit hard to find when you first time went there,but would be much more familiar with it later on. The host family and staff were very friendly and breakfast was nice. very close to the towncentre and other villages. free wireless.

I surprised my girl with 2 nights away at The Hideaway and we were both blown away by the location, the staff and the overall venue. We spent 5 hours bushwalking on day one and another 3 on day two. If nature is your thing, then this is the place for you!

Hideaway was a lovely spot to stay in Wentworth Falls. Very quiet, lovely views from all rooms and very friendly staff. The beds are really comfy and the rooms are simply furnished but huge! We only stayed for 1 night but would stay longer next time to get our money's worth.

My family and I stayed here over the weekend as a small getaway from Sydney. This place is absolutely beautiful and has the perfect location! The rooms are cosy and the heating facilities are more than adequate (this is what I was really happy about as I was worried how our toddler would handle the blue mountains climate). We thoroughly enjoyed our stay from the moment we checked in, we had lovely french doors in our room which opened up to the pool area and the breakfast which we got with our package was very satisfying. This place was amazing, we honestly did not want to leave, so relaxing and tranquil. We are planning when we will be able to return and hopefully stay longer than one night.

This was a great choice for an ovenight stay in the Blue Mountains, the room was large, clean and comfortable and with wifi! The hotel's eclectic decor was interesting and unusual. The young couple mangaing the hotel were very warm, friendly and informative. The secluded location was quite beautiful in the morning with breathtaking views. The continental breakfast (included) was simple but ample. It fill bill exactly for a weekend get a way.

My Boyfriend and I spent 2 fantastic nights here. We arrived on the Sunday afternoon and were greeted by the Manager who took us up to the room which overlooked the pool and the valley. The Breakfast in the morning was refreshing and filling. The location was perfect for what we wanted which was to see - the Three Sisters and Wentworth Falls and also resturants cafe's and a cinema.
Overall, the Hideaway Retreat is simple, relaxing and the staff could not have been friendlier or more helpfull. I would definatley return if I get the chance...even if it is just to get away from the city.

Room Tip: All rooms seemed to be a good size and face the pool and valley.
