We took up our Luxuryescapes.com voucher we had purchased earlier in the year to have a stopover in the Blue Mountains on the way to Port Macquarie. What a pleasurable experience we had. The room was very spacious with a king sized bed and a large bathroom complete with spa bath. It was clean and tastefully decorated. We enjoyed so many aspects of our stay - the generous breakfasts with so much variety (those yummy pastries and croissants, the Bircher muesli), the Devonshire tea, the cosy library and various lounges for relaxing or reading. The staff in the cocktail lounge and the restaurant were friendly, efficient and helpful. There were only a couple of things that stopped me giving this a five - lack of a shelf near the bathroom sink for toiletries and very poor lighting in the bathroom (difficult for shaving and putting on makeup). The lift is quite challenging until one gets the hang of it. We were surprised also that there is no one to help take up bags to a room if it is needed for elderly or disabled customers. Overall though, it is a wonderful spot to spend a winter break. The decor and the setting made us feel we were part of an Agatha Christie mystery.
