Absolutey fabulous. The setting was magic & we had a wonderful stay over two days. Believe me one night isn't enough! Undisturbed in a magical setting & we thoroughly enjoyed it. It is our intention to experience the other themes.

From the moment it was booked and the phone conversation with the owner you feel like they are really willing to do whatever they can to make your stay really great and when we arrived they not only met that expectations but took it to another level.

We stayed in "The Castle" and that is simply spectacular in what you have in that living experience from your own Projector and surround sound to a fireplace and personal 6 foot plunge pool with waterfall with fully working self contained kitchen and then you go upstairs to the four poster bed with a massive two person (two shower head with individual controls) shower, toilet and double spa bath. The bedroom opens up to a nice sized balcony with banana lounges overlooking the natural surroundings.

You can just lock yourself in and stay there the whole weekend or come and go as you please to see and do the many variety of things that you can do on the mountain including a lot of novelty shops and restaurants as well as many choices of wineries of all varieties.

Apart from the obvious luxury and quality that has gone into the accommodation it is superseded by the service that is given not only by the owners Cheryl and Nick but the staff in general where you have been programmed to accept average everywhere else they give you excellent as their standard and for me was what made the difference from being a good holiday and an excellent holiday.

My wife and I would highly recommend this as a destination for either a Romantic or Relaxation holiday or quite easily both as you are guaranteed to have a great time no matter the reason.

Room Tip: If you can afford the extra than go with either "The Abbey" or "The Castle" as y...

We are extremely lucky to have a small team of excellent staff. We value them highly knowing that their input into our guests experience can make the difference between a good escape & an amazing time away. Life is so hectic for us all now, that when we do have the chance to escape, it needs to be special. We try very hard to meet that standard. We want to thank you for your comments and want you to know that they are passed on to our team.

From the moment that we arrived we just loved it. We stayed in the Tir-Na-Nog cottage,(Irish). We loved everything about it, just the right size for a cosy few days together. The open fireplace and the double spa were awesome. We also ordered a full breakfast hamper every morning and they were great. Cheryl is very helpful in lots of information around the area and couldn't do enough to make sure our visit was wonderful. Lisson Grove is very central to everything and we could have spent more time up there, from walks to visiting the many wineries and the gallery walk etc. This was our first time staying on Mount Tamborine but won't be our last.

We are pleased to let people know that recently our stay at Lisson Grove was amazing. My wife and I decided to get away for the weekend for a simple get-a-way to relax. " Wow " there are not enough words or adjectives to describe the wonder and amazement my wife and I experienced. It is everything you would expect and more, with service to match. Without the distractions of every day life, this luxury boutique resort offers the ultimate romantic escape for couples to escape and unwind. The newly established Castle is a must to experience with its genuine open Log fireplaces, double spa baths, indoor pool, Air-conditioning, projection theatre system with beautiful furnishings and lush Bath Robes. Lisson Grove will rejuvenate and refresh your mind body and sole leaving you with the sensations of an unforgettable experience. A must to stay with its gorgeous surroundings private and a perfect romantic place to stay.

Stayed for weekend Winter getaway. We were so looked after by Nick & Cheryl, there's nothing they won't do to ensure you have a great stay. Nick even rang me on mobile to make sure there was nothing else we wanted. There wasn't. The cottages are so nice, fireplace great, very comfortable bed, cosy & warm. The cottages are situated in a little village setting, garden surrounds are beautiful. We were supplied with a breakfast hamper with lots of goodies, sparkling wine which was great too when normally hotels give you the cheap yucky one. Nothing to fault. Had friends stay in Baden and The Gables which were lovely too. We will revisit. Thanks Nick & Cheryl

Room Tip: The Abbey, Gamekeepers Cottage. The Gables are somewhat smaller but so cute.

We stayed at the Gatekeepers Cottage, it was very cosy, loved the open fire and huge spa bath off our bedroom. There were a few improvements they could do, like having a buggy to take your luggage to your cottage as you can't park next to your cottage, there is a designated carpark so you're left to lug everything yourself, not sure how that can get them the 5 star rating? It would also be great if they opened up a restaurant on site so we could both relax without having one of us drive somewhere for dinner. However overall it's a great place for couples and the open log fire was lovely, definitely go in winter to take advantage of the fireplace. Customer service was great too, staff very friendly and helpful.
