We enjoyed almost every aspect of our stay at Briars last weekend. It's situated only a few minutes from Bowral in lovely surroundings.
The room size and layout are great, however it would appear that the housekeeping staff are not up to scratch. One couple in our group had 'suspicious' stains all over their bedspread, and we had small stains on ours. After showering on the first evening I grabbed a 'fresh' towel from the rack only to find that it had a large amount of dried snot or mucus in it, obviously from a previous guest! Additionally, on the first night we had a glass of red wine each, and when we returned the next day both glasses had been quickly rinsed and turned upside down near the tv, still showing red wine marks from the night before!
The reception staff were fantastic however and attended to any issues we had immediately and were very embarrassed and apologetic over the bedspreads and towel.
The rest of the hotel is very clean and well looked after, and we enjoyed one dinner and two breakfasts in the restaurant.
At this stage I would not recommend the hotel to a friend, purely based on the cleanliness issues of the rooms. Hotel management need to re-evauate their housekeeping staff because if the rooms were clean and better maintained then it would be a fabulous place for a weekend getaway.
