My wife and I stayed at Tallawalla Retreat while touring NSW. We were welcomed with a cream tea in the breakfast room which overlooks the extensive gardens and across the valley beyond. Our room was clean and comfortable, if not spacious, but there is also a large lounge area for guests with deep armchairs, TV and plenty of reading material. All very informal and we were made to feel at home, our stay rounded off with a well-cooked breakfast in the morning while we watched the birds in the garden. Thoroughly recommended.
