“Excellent & quiet B&B”
Reviewed 22 January 2014 via mobile

The young couple running this B&B were thoroughly accommodating. The room was spacious, airy and clean. Also a good size de suite. The only downside was that there was no air-conditioning, but a ceiling fan. Would not want to be there on very hot nights. The cooked breakfast was delicious and there is a good sized billiard room in the games room. I would highly recommend this venue to my friends and would definitely stay again. Thank you very much! Gina, Melbourne.

We only stayed here for one night but it was exactly what we were after. Yes the rooms are a little dated but it adds to the overall feel of the place. We enjoyed the friendly, family atmosphere. The host Ronnie is always at hand to help with any questions. It's only a short 5-10 min walk to the village where there are a few nice places to eat and shop. A nice place if you're after a quiet getaway.

Only a short drive from the village, but the Hideaway Retreat feels miles from anywhere. Lovely views over the escarpment, refreshing swimming pool, friendly 24 hour onsite service from Ronnie and Damien. Frequent overhead visits from yellow-tailed black cockatoos, crimson rosellas and king parrots. Onsite chickens means the breakfast eggs are extra delicious and fresh and bread is home-baked each day. Rooms are 3 star but clean and comfortable. We had a really relaxing stay and considering how busy the Blue Mountains can get (5-8 Jan) we were really pleased at how quiet and peaceful our rooms were.

Room Tip: Upstairs (Freud wing) for the best views, downstairs (Mozart wing) for poolside access

We stayed in early January to get out of the city. The property is quirky and looking out the window is straight into the valley, with a couple of trees in front . We didn't use the pool as it was raining during our stay but it's directly out the window. The only thing I didn't like was how high the bed was (only doubles on property) but my partner loved it. Would definitely come back.

We had our wedding there and had family and friends stay overnight. Everyone was impressed with the venue and the wonderful friendly staff and family that run it. They were so helpful throughout the whole process of organising the wedding and were so amazing on the day. We were so happy with the venue and couldn't have asked for anything more. Thanks guys

We attended a wedding here and stayed overnight. The views of the mountains are gorgeous and by being so close to nature, it's a good place for a weekend away from the city.

Ronnie and Damien were also wonderful hosts, who made the Retreat a bit more like home.

This review is a bit late - we were there in April 2013. The hosts are really friendly and will help out wherever possible. We appreciated the wine glasses by the fireplace and the help choosing a takeaway option. The rooms are comfy and open on to the pool area, garden and views over the valley. Breakfast was very good, and we enjoyed seeing the owners family and kids there with us. The games room was well stocked for the kids to find something to do, and the range of books in reception for the adults was eclectic, with something for just about everyone.
