Reviewed 12 July 2014 via mobile

What an amazing place. You feel you've stepped into another world. Nestled amongst Australian rainforest you're surrounded with the lovely sound's of native birds, the sound of the stream trickling by. Once you walk into the cabin - the rosella, you instantly feel the warmth of the log fire burning, the beautiful food hamper of local products, a tasty cheese platter waiting in the fridge plus a complimentary craft of port on the bench. The lounge and bed was comfortable, the spa amazing, the hammock delightful (especially in the morning listening to the birds) and of course the breakfast. Michael our host delivered freshly baked croissants to die for. Take a pair of walking shoes and explore the walking tracks around the area. It is just a pretty area. We WILL be back.

Stayed July 2014, travelled as a couple

I took my mum and sister on a 'girls getaway'. We had a lovely time! It was tranquil and very relaxing! We enjoyed the convenience of the DVD selections and relaxed in the spa bath. We loved the extra pampering of the beautiful shampoo, conditioner and moisturisers that were in the bathroom. We couldn't wait to climb into the snuggly warm beds at night as well. No need to take breakfast - the hamper given to us was huge and the fresh croissants in the morning were delicious! Thanks Narrows Escape for a holiday to remember!

Great relaxing week. Excellent service, very friendly and accommodating. Food hamper was great - even accommodated for my food intolerances. Spa was fabulous with warmth from open fire and great winter comfort.

Absolutely Magical :) Michael and Karen made us feel right at home. Even for a 2 night stay we could switch off and relax. It felt like we where in our own private forest cottage with all the 5 star conveniences. Will be making this a regular trip. Thank you so much

“Thank you for your amazing hospitality. This was by far the BEST "getaway" that we've had, and we can't wait to return! The croissants were amazing, very lovely! The couples massage was a wonderful luxury. And the dinners Michael cooked were first class! Do you have a way to stop time, so we can stay longer? Loved the port! Loved the strawberries!”

Hi Peter M,
Wow, wow! – High praise indeed! “The Best!” We are truly humbled by your kind review and we are delighted you enjoyed your stay and all the little extra touches...including the delicious dinners served directly to your pavilion. The best way to stop time again might be to steal away for another short break and let the team at Narrows Escape spoil you all over again...the port, the croissants...!!! the sounds of the rainforest...See you soon.

Our stay was beautiful! The room was delightful, with a fire place AND aircon, the setting is peaceful and relaxing and Michael and Karen do everything in their power to make your stay memorable. Every little thing is thought of and the food was exceptional. Beautiful breakfast and dinner hampers. Why go to a restaurant when you can have restaurant quality, reasonably priced, absolutely delicious food brought right to your door?! Loved it!!! Hope to be back soon.
