“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2014

This Retreat is really a Retreat. It is tucked away in wonderful surroundings in Wentworth Falls. Close enough to everything but still quite and peaceful. The smaller touches of the Fire already going prior to you arriving gives you a lovely feeling of coming home. Your check in is smooth and stress free. Excellent Staff. Wonderfully clean. You walk away appreciating the whole experience.

Room Tip: Any Type of Room is wonderful. However a loft over the forrest is beautiful.

I stayed here for business from October 2013-March 2014. Not only were the rooms always clean and relaxing, but the service and friendliness of the staff most impressive. They were extremely accommodating over cancellations and last minute bookings. They went to a lot of effort to ensure that not only were our stays comfortable, but helped with requests like providing a bbq area for a work dinner.
The area is very very well located in Wentworth falls, just a short 5 min walk to stunning viewpoints. Falls retreat is a beautiful quiet place to relax, and the professionalism of the staff is above any expectations.
The area is quiet and relaxing. You can't hear any neighbours. And the spa is a treat!
Definitely worth staying here during business trips or holiday getaways.

Stayed here on a last minute trip to the Blue Mountains.. Great price for the location! Just a 5 min walk to the heart of the wentworth falls, close to great bush walks too. Staff are friendly and very helpful. We stayed in a studio loft, which was upstairs. It had kitchenette (very basic), sitting area, king bed and spacious bathroom with spa bath which was great! Walking distance to little town centre but would need a car to get to Leura/Katoomba or the 3 sisters unless you had the time then you could walk I guess??? Would stay here again for sure. Oh but next time I would take my own pillow... Only thing that was a let down... their pillows :)

After my boyfriend and I realised we both had a few days off together we decided to book a room at the retreat for the same day. The drive up the mountains was gorgeous, and once we got to the retreat we were both really happy with the accommodation before we even got our keys. The rooms are so cute, they have a fire place and hot tub and a really beautiful and comfortable vibe. The rooms are really large and nothing feels cramped. It is so perfect for a romantic getaway!
The location was also great, we went for a bushwalk and the trail was in walking distance from the accommodation. Would recommend to stay here! Great memories of the lovely location and rooms. Good price too!

We stayed for three nights in these comfortable apartments with our children. The location is excellent and you can walk to Wentworth falls and the surrounding trails within minutes. Location is the strongest attraction.
The accommodation is organised into separate downstairs (one double bedroom, one bath room and long galley kitchen) and upstairs (studio with small galley kitchen and large bathroom) apartments, which are joined together for families.
We found it hard to contact anyone for help after hours - mobile phone number provided rang through when appliance wasn't working and message was not responded following morning. We had to chase up 24hours later. Not sure how things would be if a crisis.
Main issue is that the 'Retreat' sounds like a characterful idyll in the mountains - it actually feels more like a motel. All the apartments are built around a central courtyard/carpark where cars are parked, the accommodation is very generic and the place feels more like a mid-market chain than a 'Mountain Retreat'. Don't misunderstand - it's clean and comfortable, but don't expect character.

Room Tip: Upstairs studio apartments are spacious and airy but useless kitchen. Downstairs apartment has usefu...

On an impulse, and suffering from jet lag, exhaustion and hay fever from polluted Sydney city air, I found THE FALLS mountain retreat . Wentworth Falls, is one of the only villages remaining relatively unspoiled by overdevelopment.

From the first phone call and email exchanges with Tanya, it was clear that I'd found a friendly, easy and welcome solution to a 5 night stay. I chose a loft , simply and beautifully designed, with no noise except that of the wind through the forest trees enhanced by the songs of birds and cicadas.

Upon arrival Tanya showed me a map, nearby bushwalks, some recommended places to shop and eat. For future family visits I viewed larger apartments and each reflected the same relaxing design excellence , thought process and total simplicity and cleanliness.

My loft featured 2 balconies, allowing mountain air flow, superb tree views, quiet colours without gaudy paintings in poor taste, beautifully appointed bathroom with a large window informing the soak in the tub with forest view, a sweet minimalist kitchen facility with microwave/convection, coffee making facilities, dishes, and a bar fridge; sofas, work desk and dining area. All thought of, in place without a sense of being crowded.

The location is excellent for both short,quiet or longer strenuous bushwalks, or a walk to the commercial area of the village.

Although I'd like to keep this wonderful haven a secret so that there's always availability for me to return, it's an honour to share this recommendation and to say thank you to Tanya and to the owners of The Falls.

We arrived at Mountain Falls at 6 30 in the evening after having a horrible experience with a rental property close by. We were made so welcome and although they did not have any rooms ready, they quickly organised a room to be prepared. All the staff were friendly, very helpful and gave us ideas on where to visit. The location is excellent for visiting the Blue Mountains. After a miserable start Falls Mountain Retreat came to the rescue, I'm so glad we spotted their advert in a local travel newspaper. A big thank you!
