Reviewed 27 May 2014

My husband and I stayed for four nights and absolutely loved it! So romantic and cosy, it really was the perfect getaway. Robyn would have to be the best host we've ever come across. She went to such great lengths to ensure our stay was as good as it was - and she really made it special. From the wine, port and chocolates, to the fireplace being turned on before we arrived back so our room was always warm, she did a fabulous job. It's rare that you feel so at home on holiday but we most certainly did. Leura is a beautiful town and we wouldn't want to stay anywhere else there! The location was ideal, very close walking distance to the main street. Will most definitely be back. Thanks so much Robyn!

Hi Sam and Lauren, Thank you for your amazing review. Delighted to hear you enjoyed The Terrace and Magical Manderley. It was a pleasure to have fire on for your return each day and glad you enjoyed the bubbly, port and chocolates.

We are always pleased to hear you found your stay relaxing and peaceful - our guests do enjoy the quiet garden setting just a stroll to lovely Leura Village.

Thank you again and will look forward to welcoming you back to Magical Manderley in the future. Best wishes. Robyn

Just returned from Magical Manderley! My husband & I head to Leura for a weekend away every year. This year we decided to stay closer to Leura village & decided on this wonderful establishment. Run by the delightful, friendly & attentive Robyn we were glad we did. The "Treetops" apartment was delightful with opulent decor & so very cosy. Recommend this place highly hope to return to the welcoming arms of the hostess!

We have been staying at Magical Manderlay for many years now and if we were only allowed one word to describe this pristine accommodation, it would be "PERFECT"! The owner, Robyn Piddington is always delightfully cheerful and nothing is too much trouble for her in looking after her guests, many of whom, like us, keep returning year after year. We always stay in 'Treetops', a beautiful one bedroom apartment overlooking a perfect setting of lush trees and garden settings. We think of it as the most comfortable accommodation one could wish for and despite knowing how special it is, each time we step inside we always think how lucky we are to be spoilt by Robyn. Aside from being so tastefully decorated and furnished, guests want for nothing in terms of abundant provisions including generous food supplies and treats. Importantly, the location is brilliantly positioned within a very short stroll to Leura Village and surrounds, so we rarely have need to use our car. Our warmest thanks to Robyn from Richard and Renata.

Magical Manderley is a beautiful and restful B&B in Leura town. We have had the pleasure of staying here every year for the last 5 years. Robyn Piddington is our host and she leaves nothing to chance. The units are immaculate and well stocked with so many goodies. The bedding is sumptuous and rooms tastefully elegant. Very conveniently located as well, with a short stroll to the great shops and restaurants. Only wish I could come and stay more often. Thank you for your amazing hospitality Robyn.

Room Tip: 2 levels. One unit upstairs and one downstairs. The upper unit is larger. The lower is a garden unit...

My wife and I were introduced to Robyn and Magical Manderley some time back and are so grateful. We have have stayed in the terrace suite a few times and it never dissapoints. Apart from the immaculately kept building and tranquil grounds, it is Robyns attention to detail that sets Magical Manderley apart from everyone else. The location is fantastic being a short walk to Leura mall so that we can stroll home after indulging in one of the streets beautiful restaurants for dinner. The suite has all you after including spa, fireplace and Robyns touches ensure a special stay. The outdoor area is perfect for breakfast and afternoon drinks, just so special. Robyn, you always make our stay so delightful, you are an amazing lady and your Magical Manderley is a true expression of you. After a weekend with you, we feel revived and ready to take on the world again. Belinda and Tony

Room Tip: No tips, Robyn will take care of you

I don’t normally write reviews but having had such an enjoyable stay at Magical Manderley, I felt compelled to! We are a young Irish couple that was visiting the blue mountains for a long weekend. We stayed at “the Terrace” apartment, a beautiful and romantic open plan apartment. The spa bath is a very welcome addition after a days exploring the mountains! Considering the Terrace does not have full kitchen facilities I was expecting having to dine out each morning, however we found the breakfast provisions provided by Robyn more than adequate to set us up for a days exploring.

Manderley location is ideal, a short stroll to the many shops and restaurants of Leura and a great base for exploring the wider Blue Mountains region. We hope to stay again!
