“Tall Trees, Kangaroo Valley”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

Had a great time staying at Tall Trees. Everything was really well presented and the log fire was a real bonus for the winter nights. Shaye, the host was very helpful and friendly. Would highly recommend a stay here.

Spent our one year anniversary in the tree house (looks like lots of couples stay there according to the guest book!):

Location
Walkable distance to the main high street although make sure you take a torch at night. Kangaroo valley is beautiful and enjoyed canoeing down the river.

Accommodation
Beautifully decorated in African style. Love the 4 pillar bed with the netting - reminded us of Africa! Separate building from other rooms so very quiet with nice balcony. Well equipped kitchen with cafetiere and ground coffee provided.

Food
Breakfast provisions provided (bread, eggs, ham, mushrooms, tomatoes, fresh juice, cereal and milk) to cook yourself on hot plate at your leisurely pace.

Other
No internet connection/wi-fi. Two person spa bath although the jacuzzi wasn't working fully and is very loud so we didn't use it. Own car park.

Hi - thank you for your review and glad you enjoyed your stay.

Apologies for the spa bath, I have checked it and it appears to be working fine, the jets can be used individually and from what I can see some were set into the off position so would give the impression that they weren’t all working, I shall leave a note in the room information explaining this for future guests. Unfortunately the noise cannot be reduced as there is a motor that runs the spa located under the bath.

Thank you for your feedback and I hope to welcome you back again one day.

I was booked to work in the Kangaroo Valley and the B&B was booked by my employer. I have never stayed at a Bed and Breakfast before so didn't know what to expect. On arrival the the beautiful property Shaye warmly welcomed us and showed us to our room, actually both rooms were free and she allowed us to chose which one we preferred. There are two decent sized rooms both with bathroom and a large shared living room with books, fireplace, fridge etc. There was also a television in the room and a lounge and we used this for relaxation. Shaye gave us our breakfast card to fill out for breakfast the next day and then pretty much left us to out own devices but offered assistance at any time we needed. The breakfast sounded too good to be true so we were excited for the next day. The property is very close to the main street with restaurants and the local pub which serves food 5 till 8pm. The area is beautiful. We needed to have internet access and with Optus we had no problems at all. I had a very peaceful sleep. There is a breakfast room which overlooks the beautiful gardens and when we came out of the room in the morning it was set for breakfast. This breakfast is one of the best I have EVER had - I travel for work so am used to hotel/restaurant breakfasts and this surpassed them ALL. We left for the drive back to Sydney very full and after a lovely long chat with Shaye. You will feel at home at this B&B. The website is a great representation of exactly what you will get. Shaye is a great host.

Spent a very pleasant weekend away with my girlfriend here in December 2012. Stayed in the treehouse. The room is very clean and comfortable. Moderately-sized. Personal touches with obvious attention to detail in the room were very welcome. Being a converted storage room above a car garage, the room has a little bit of a 'better homes and gardens'-budget-home-makeover feel, rather than genuine luxury. There was some noise at night from the fridge and road traffic. Despite this, I found the room perfectly comfortable and inviting (and personally was a big fan of the faux-leopard skin bedspread)! I think this is a very good 3 1/2 star room transformed by the five-star service from the host, Shaye. She was very accomodating and approachable yet never imposed unduly at any time during our stay. Would certainly recommend this place to others.

Hi Hitch2011

Thank you for your nice comments and glad you enjoyed your stay here at Tall Trees B & B, it was a pleasure to have you stay and I try my best to provide the best service that I can and it is always greatly appreciated when people take the time to compliment this so thank you again.

I would just like to clarify for future guests that you arn't staying in a coverted storeroom. The treehouse was purposely built as a self contained unit, with a balcony - there is no garage below only a storeroom which has a rollerdoor so easily mistaken as a garage so no noise will be heard from an engine. The treehouse is as advertised on the website - a themed african room and has been decorated as such and has always been one of our most popular and rebooked rooms. Our location being only a minutes drive from the centre of the village and being situated on the main Moss Vale Road there is traffic noise but this drops to a minimum at night. To get total silence accomodation needs to be booked outside of the village itself.

my friend and I stayed in the Garden stuido which whilst small had everything we needed. I found the price very reasonable in comparison to other accomodation in the area with similar or less features. Shaye was an excellent host, we arrived late which was not a problem for her, unfortunately for us all the restaurants were closed and there was no where to get dinner so we ate out breakfast supplies for dinner. Shaye happily offered to replenish any food we needed for breakfasts the next two days since we had eaten it for dinner. I would definitely recommend the Garden Studio as the best for couples, it is the most private and you can cook your own breakfast. the fire place is a really nice touch which Shaye had light for us everyday. it is within comfortable walking distance of Kangaroo Valley town (even after a few glasses of wine and a big meal). all in all a good stay

We spent the long weekend in the Garden Studio and we cannot recommend it highly enough!
The Garden Studio is separate from the house, and we had our own little garden with a swing! The room itself is very well set out, with a roaring fire place (lit before we arrived so it was nice and warm), a TV/DVD player (and DVD's to borrow from the guest lounge in the house), a little kitchen with a very well stocked fridge with breakfast supplies (bacon, eggs, mushrooms, sausages, tomato and bread to toast...as well as orange juice and tea/coffee making supplies). The Bed was wonderfully comfortable, and the bathroom was super clean with a huge 2 person spa bath! It was so quiet here...we didn't here a peep from anyone! We had such a wonderful time here, and Shaye (owner) was lovely and extremely helpful! We will be back for another fabulously relaxing weekend!!

Room Tip: Garden Studio is private and wonderful!
