Peppers Craigieburn

Reviewed February 10, 2013

We have stayed at Peppers based on friends' recommendation. After all, we are very happy for what we had offered. Although they had big guest groups which made us worried about atmosphere and noise, but the hotel staff treated us professionally, so we had no problem at all. They have got a large open space and beautiful garden, which is next to a open green golf course. Very relaxing and beautiful hotel. Old but well maintained.

If we become picky, maybe the room size is not big, no gymnastic facilities, and no elevator... but it is still enjoyable after considering the beautiful environment and good service.

Their bar food was pretty good as well. Surely we would recommend this hotel to friends.

This has to one of my all time favourite hotels, we had a short stay in December 2012 and from the minute we arrived we felt welcome and relaxed.

Beautiful gardens and the character and charm of the building are really special. The food and service in the restaurant were top class.

Can't wait to go back for another break!

Room Tip: rooms that lead onto the large verandah are really beautiful.

A lovely country hotel for a weekend stay. Great room with a nice outlook, bathroom a good size.
Evening meal was tasty with a good menu selection. Not far from Bowral with some lovely shops and cares.

We stayed hear for our anniversary, location and views were very nice. The food was excellent, while the accommodation wasn't up to peppers standard. There was no air conditioning, bathrooms small with 1 PowerPoint to run light or hair dryer or shaver.

Recently spent 2 night at Craigieburn for my nieces Wedding.

Have been going to Graigieburn for the last ten years and find it very peaceful and relaxing.

The restaurant is first class with Breakfast usually included in the room rate.

Our favourite waiter Wayne will tell you some reallly funny jokes whilst you are breakfasting and Wayne is a Cragieburn institution having worked there for well over 20 years.

Excellent 9 hole Golf Course on the grounds and 2 Tennis Courts.

The rooms are quite presentable and have everything you need. They are not on the large side but if you get a room with a balcony there is plenty of space to sit and have a cuppa and read the papers.

Great Bar and outdoor area for early coffees or afternoon drinks.

Gragieburn is great for a romantic weekend for 2, or for a lrage group to relax, play tennis and golf all weekend.

Only a short drive into Bowral or a good 1/2 hour walk and also another 1/2 hour walk the other way to Centennial Vineyards.

Overall a good place to while away a couple of days and nights,

Room Tip: Choose a balcony Elms Wing Room

We stayed at Peppers in Bowral between Xmas and New Year. We were two couples and had two lovely, recently refurbished rooms in the Morton Wing. Bathroom was a little small, but overall the room standard was excellent. The grounds are delightful and ideal for a pre-dinner or post-breakfast walk. We had dinner in the restaurant and all four of us enjoyed a really tasty meal with great service. Reception service can be a little slow, but overall we had a very relaxing stay.

Room Tip: I would recommend the Morton Wing rooms

We were a bit concerned as I read past reviews on Trip Advisor after we had booked a special deal for one night in Dec. We were shocked as we walked to the front door from the car park as the accomodation to the right of reception looked more like a basic motel. We were lucky we had booked in the Elm Wing on the otherside of the resort. Our deluxe room was on the top floor and opened to a shared long verandah, we also had a separate window above our bed that had a great view over the resorts golf course. Rooms are not big, but were very clean and a good bed as well. We had dinner in the resort restaurant, Montfords and had a wonderful meal. Best steaks we had had in a long time.
Breakfast was a buffet, and had all the normal hot and cold food. Only disappointment was the coffee.
Overall would recommend this place.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the top floor.
