I arrived at Links House feeling flustered and unwell. I was greated by an angel - Michael who ensured my stay was very comfortable and pleasant and that I felt at home and welcome. After some home made soup, a great old classic movie and a good rest I felt like a new person leaving. I'll definitely stay at Links whenever I'm in Bowral.

Recently stayed at the Links with our good friends and we couldn't have been made more welcome. The rooms are clean and homely and the food was absolutely brilliant. Unfortunately my wife left her ipad behind in the room but, thanks to Lisa and Michael, she had it safety back within a couple of days. No surprise as the whole team were excellent and couldn't do enough for us. We will definitely be back. Keith and Marg.

We stayed at the Links House to meet up with friends from Melbourne who were in the Southern Highlands for a wedding.

The room was quiet, clean and comfortable and the staff and management couldn't do enough to make our stay enjoyable.

After lunch in town, we invited our friends back for a cup tea in the courtyard. We asked the staff for two cups to supplement those in the room. Not only did we get the two cups, but also a plate of biscuits at no charge.

Breakfast was delightful.

Our only regret? We should have had dinner at the Links. Instead, we went to the much over-rated Biota - see separate review.

We will be back

Room Tip: Room 12 has a cute balcony

Just returned from spending my 40th birthday at Links House. We all had the best weekend ever!! we were a group of over 30 and everything from the setting to the service was outstanding. Nothing was a problem. Our kids had a ball and were accommodated for. Michael "you rock!!" Lisa, Caitlin, and Sophie, nothing was a problem for you, and we are so grateful to you all for making the weekend as wonderful as it was. I highly recommend staying here wether it be for a quiet getaway, couples or with family or with a group of friends. Thankyou for the most memorable weekend. We loved every minute!!
Melanie, Terry, kids and our extended families.

We have just returned from a very comfortable two-night stay at Links House. Our room was large and light-filled, with a very comfortable bed, and we liked having the small separate sitting area. The bathroom is very small, as has been mentioned, but perfectly functional and modern so no problems there. Nice extra touches like free wifi, good selection of dvds, and really friendly and helpful management. Even gave me some fresh home baked biscuits when I asked for fresh milk. Lovely quiet location. Would definitely return on any visit to Bowral and recommend to others.

I had a group of 20 staying at Links House and it was amazing.
First the property is comfortable. The setting and gardens are outstanding.
I have experienced great service before but this was above and beyond.
We arrived 3 hours late for check in at 10.30pm. We asked to have dinner at 10.45pm. Dinner was brilliant, the service at 11pm was top class and with a smile. They continued to serve us through to 2am (long after they were due to close).
Nothing was a problem.
Michael you're a legend!
Forever grateful.

Just spent 2 nights at Links House. The hotel has a lovely ambience and the service is first class.
We stayed in the comfortable Links Suite. The room had a cosy gas fire which warmed the room nicely (it was particularly chilly the day we arrived). There is also an extra "plug in" heater and the bathroom has heat lamps so heating is more than adequate.

On the first night we enjoyed dinner at Links House' La Vida restaurant. Absolutely loved the food. Good choice and the service could not have been better. Friendly without being fussy. We also enjoyed our breakfasts there. Great selection of items on the menu. Definitely recommend to have dinner here at least once.

If you enjoy golf. Bowral Golf Club is across the road. We played at Moss Vale which is a 10 to 15 minute drive away.

If you are planning a dinner at Biota then I would suggest you ask the person at reception to organise a cab. It is a $10 cab ride away and definitely not worth it if you are planning on having a drink or two at Biota.

All together I would definitely come back to stay at Links House again. The only reason why I have not given it 5 stars is that the warm water was a bit temperamental. Generally it was good but from time to time it would go cold for a few seconds before returning to warm - not great but I would say just a minor irritation. That said it may be something Links House should seek to address as I notice some other reviewer also mentioned this.

BTW the ensuite bathroom to the Links Suite is actually very spacious.

Thank you Links House' friendly and helpful staff for a lovely stay.

Thank you for your review and we're so glad you enjoyed our restaurant and your stay at Links House.
We're sorry you experienced fluctuating water temperatures in the Links Suite. We actually thought the problem had been rectified as our plumber worked tirelessly for half a day on the project after a guest brought the matter to our attention a couple of months ago. Well, we'll be straight on the phone this morning and ensure the problem is finally fixed!
