“Absolutely fantastic in every way!”
Reviewed June 29, 2010

I stayed at Witches Falls Cottages for one night during a leisure trip. The cottage was beautiful, from the modern spa bathroom to the beautiful back yard area and cozy main room with fireplace and complimentary port and chocolate. Service was absolutely excellent. David helped us out with whatever we needed, always with a smile. I would absolutely recommend this location to anyone traveling in the area.

If you're looking for something special, this is the place to go. Your own private getaway with amazing food, service and location. David and Daniela are warm and friendly and the best bit - their chickens lay fresh eggs daily! Will be back.

Such an amazing place! A completely hidden gem on beautiful,
mount Tamborine! The staff are so caring, and lovely,
and the BBQ Breakfast option is the best! I have uploaded photos of it.

If you want a relaxing, spacious, comfy hideaway this is the place
to have it! Thanks you Daniella & David!

Witches Falls Cottages is a perfect place to stay when you need to getaway. It is quiet, private and has such a welcoming atmosphere. David and Daniela are so lovely and accommodating. The Breakfast with warm freshly cooked bread delivered to your door with your own private garden BBQ to cook up a feast was great fun and a nice point of difference.

Comfy bed, great spa and yummy chocolates. I would recommend witches falls cottages to everyone.

I just wanted to acknowledge to the world how wonderful the management at Witches Falls Cottages were to my best friend (bride to be), and her 2 bridesmaids (myself included). I had organised for Ripple Massages to come to our suite at another pre-booked accommodation property on Mt Tambourine ( end of Alpine Terrace) and the girls from Ripple received a very hostile reception due to the property having its own day spa. I had pre-paid for this service to give my best friend a beautiful surprise to prepare for her wedding the next day. There was no understanding, empathy or flexibility given to us from the property and we were forced to find an alternative location. The girls from Ripple took it in their stride and reassured me that they would do everything they could to fix the stressful situation. David and Daniela from Witches Falls Cottages came to the rescue! Not only did they allow us a guest room to have our massages in, but they provided a full service, including Bath Robes, Towels, use of the beautiful outdoor spa, amenities and wait for it.....Champagne, port and chocolates!!!! My friends and I were so overwhelmed with their generosity and hospitality that I am planning a trip to Mt Tambourine in the near future and will be definitely staying at Witches Falls Cottages.
Thank you David and Daniela. You saved the day!

After deciding last minute to take my partner away for her birthday, i came across Witches Falls Cottages. As per usual i had a read through the reviews on Trip Advisor and booked a room.
David was helpful and friendly on the phone and more than happy to accommodate us, even if it was for only one night. We arrived to the magic of the area and we were cheerily greeted by both David and Daniella at the reception.
After giving us some information on the local area and things to do we were shown to our cottage. David gave us a brief run down of the cottage and we never saw him again until we checked out the next day.
Highly recommond Clancy's for an Irish pub meal and also spend some time at the lookout.
The breakfast hamper hit the spot. The bread was crusty and warm and the food excellent.
After reading some of the reviews i was wondering about the breakfast hamper. I agree the OJ was warm and my partner didn't eat the cereal provided but there was more than enough food to last us most of the day.

I don't feel that the breakfast hamper provided is a reason to not recommend this establishment. and if this is the your biggest concern maybe a few more days at Witches Falls should be on the cards.

In summary, i highly recommend these cottages for some special time away. Pack the car with some Wine, Beer and OJ and make the trip to Witches Falls - you won't regret it.

I cannot speak highly enough of the Witches Falls Cottages from every angle. From the staff to the location and from its character to the attention to detail such as the port wine on arrival, the gorgeous hampers and even the provision of umbrellas and a torch to light the way to the nearest pub along a dimly lit mountain road...

Sometimes you need to escape to a place like this where you can lay in the spa tub under the stars and shower in the morning with a view of a tall eucalypt through the bathroom's glass ceiling. We even booked massages with Ripple Massage and the therapists came to us and treated us to two hours of bliss. Ask for Veronica and Jess :)

Whether you're newlyweds or have been married 20 years like us - do yourselves a favour and go up the mountain - you'll be glad you did!

I think often that pictures speak louder than words so I will add a selection to this post.
