“The wonderful Manderley”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

My husband and I have been enjoying Magical Manderley since 2000. We elect to stay in Treetops, the upstairs apartment. It is so very beautiful. The furniture, fixtures and fittings are first class and the bed and bathroom are simply Devine. Thick, fluffy towels, gorgeous bubble bath gel, shampoos and body creames are popped at the end of your bed. In the well appointed kitchen there are plenty of provisions. Bacon, eggs, bread, milk, coffees and teas, lovely bottles of bubbles, aperitifs, chocolates - and then there are the treats, such as a lovely cake for afternoon tea or crackers and cheese. And of course there is beautiful Robyn, the owner of our home away from home. Robyn is the most warm, welcoming person we know. Visiting Manderley is like visiting a favourite sister, the love is in the detail. When we arrive (no matter the time) the fire is lit, the lamps are on and our favourite CD of Rod is playing on the CD player. I know we will be coming back for another 15 years! Thanks again Robyn.

Hi Kerri-Ann and Michael, What a wonderful Review - I am deeply touched by your lovey comments. 15 years enjoying Magical Manderley - where has that time gone!!!! I look forward to your returns each year and it is certainly like welcoming family. Your comments certainly inspire me to continue in tourist accommodation after 32 years and stay at Magical Manderley. I enjoyed restoring the property in 2000 and from memory you both were one of my first visitors. Glad you enjoy the Rod Steward cds - what a joy his songs are, and the books and dvds.

Thank you again - I appreciate your Review so much. Take care and will look forward to your return in 2015. Best wishes. Robyn

Such a beautiful place to stay. It's very relaxing & romantic. Room is absolutely beautiful & included are cheese, chocolate & champagne on arrival, as well as lots of breakfast treats. Romantic music, Dvd's & books are all there to enjoy, next to a cosy fireplace. It's the perfect escape & Robyn is such a lovely, pleasant lady. This is our second year at Magical Manderley & we will be booking again. Truly amazing & unforgettable!

Manderlay is a beautiful luxury hidden gem . The tree tops appartment is off the street & is very quiet for the best sleep you will ever have ! Robyn is a lovely lady & will look after you .
Manderlay is very close to the very tempting leura shops .
A real treat to stay in the Blue Mountains . And her dear little dog Plum is a delight !

Our stay at Magical Manderley was a wonderful surprise of warm and genuine hospitality with thoughtful details all the way. Our delightful host Robyn is so welcoming and enthusiastic about providing a fabulous experience for anyone who stays at her lovely property. We can only stay there now as she has spoilt us for anywhere else. We appreciated every detail of the provisions, the ambiance and the lovely decor of the Terrace and we can't wait to go back.

Hi Lisa and John, Was great to welcome you to The Terrace and Magical Manderley - was good that we had that odd night available for you.

Thank you so much and pleased you enjoyed your stay and the decor in The Terrace which is quite a romantic and cosy feel - our honeymooners often choose it and opening to the private terrace in Spring is great.

Will look forward to welcoming you back when your schedule allows - perhaps in Spring when Leura is just stunning. Best wishes. Robyn

We have just had our 5th visit to Magical Manderley and we cannot speak too highly of the accommodation or Robyn whose hospitaltiy and care is simply outstanding. Robyn ensures that every detail is perfect by providing everything you need to have a comfortable and quiet stay. We have always stayed at Treetops and really appreciate the decor, comfortable furnishings and cleanliness of the apartment. We have no hesitation in recommending Magical Manderley.

Hi Barrie and Cheryl on a great Winter day here in Leura.

Many thanks for your wonderful Review -hard to believe that this was your fifth visit to Magical Manderley - always so pleased to welcome you both and glad you enjoy Treetops - good Winter spot with its North facing windows overlooking the trees and gardens.

The Winter is flying by and we look forward to Spring now when gardens in Leura are great.

Take care and will look forward to welcoming you for your sixth visit next year. My best wishes and appreciation. Robyn
