Reviewed 6 October 2013

stayed as a couple october 2013 for 2 nights. Disappointed with the room as it was small in size and basic but clean and modern. However For the price we were paying I would have expected a better room standard. Location is really good right on the golf course and nice gardens and common areas with fireplaces etc. Buffet breakfast was excellent but dinner was average and expensive. Staff were nice and helpful. Would stay again but only if we got a better deal pricewise.

Thank you David for providing feedback on yours stay. Being built back in 1887 the main house rooms are not as large as those of the modern house of today, I am sorry the size was not to your expectation. Pleaseing to note you found them clean and modern and you also enjoyed the gardens, the golf course and lounge areas. We do hope you will visit with us again.

Kind regards
Robyn & Team

We have just returned after a two night stay at your hotel and whilst the vista is beautiful at Craigieburn the amenities are more than lacking. The rooms are small, ill equipped and lacking decent storage. We were not supplied with a new bathmat or soap for our second night. We fully understand that Craigieburn is a treasure in that area but the top floor really deserves a full upgrade to match the quality of the downstairs floor. We felt that the obligation to pay extra for a decent cup of coffee with breakfast really is a sad reflection on the standard of your hotel. You need to find the balance between the old world charm and the overall requirements that your visitors expect in this day and age. We definately would not recommend this venue to our friends

HI Amanda
Thank you for your feedback and taking the time to speak with me today. I acknowledge that you felt the room did not supply enough storage for your articules during your stay and that this was also lacking in the bathroom. With regards to the bathmat and soap had you contacted Reception this would have been replaced straight away. However I am very sorry that this was overlooked during the room service. With regards to the coffee It is common practice in the industry to charge for espresso coffees with standard coffee being included in the breakfast charge. As mentioned we have improved on the coffee standard since your stay. Once again thank you for your feedback.
Kind regards
Robyn & Team

This hotel is in a very pretty location overlooking beautiful gardens and a private golf course and not too far from the town of Bowral. The room (in the Elms Wing) was modern and very clean if a bit on the small side. I am sure they have larger rooms elsewhere in the complex - some opening onto verandahs.

The breakfast room overlooks the gardens and is light and airy. There were not enough people there for a buffet breakfast so we were offered a la carte, which was very nice if a bit slow to arrive. It is also a bit expensive at $44 per couple or $58 if you do not advise the hotel the night before. A little steep if you only want cereal and toast.

My husband and I stayed for only 1 night at Peppers Craigieburn whilst travelling home from Canberra. The Southern Highlands was a place we have been meaning to visit and were so pleased we made the effort on this trip.

Peppers Craigieburn is not for those who expect modern conveniences but if you enjoy the peace and quiet of the country and olde-worldly charm, this is the place for you. Our room opened onto a communal balcony, very large, with views over the gardens and golf course. We enjoyed sitting out here having a coffee with no other guest using this great space.

We did encounter a problem with an exhaust fan in the bathroom. It did not turn off for quite some time after using the bathroom, then came on by itself. As it was rather noisy, I contacted reception. The woman I spoke with was very pleasant and within a few minutes, had arranged for us to move to another room, with the same access to the verandah. We were happy with this arrangement, especially when the tariff for the room/breakfast was reduced.

I would gladly stay here again and would love to spend more time exploring this very picturesque area.

We stayed at Craigieburn for a friend's wedding, which was also hosting the reception. As a part of the wedding package we stayed in a Moreton wing room. On a previous trip we stayed in an Elms wing balcony room (much nicer). Service is fine, but a special mention for a waiter at the restaurant by the name of Wayne. Excellent service and the perfect balance of friendly and funny without crossing the line. Rooms are fine, comfortable king bed, bathrooms on the smallish side. The buffet breakfast is excellent! Overall a very pleasant experience.

Room Tip: Ask for an Elms wing balcony room

Visited Montforts restaurant and hands can say its become one of my favourites already. Food was of an exceptional delicious standard and service was second to non! Wayne, Marcus and Mikayla were wonderful in looking after our table. Would recommend it to all. I had the tunnel mushroom for entree, fillet Mignon for main and the Fig Parfait for dessert and could not fault any dish, it was all first class!
