We stayed here for the weekend and loved it! The rooms are clean and simple but well appointed, with mini bar, tea and coffee etc.

The views from our balcony were amazing, looking out to rolling green hills and the ocean!

The restaurant looked lovely and the food smelled fantastic but we didn't get a chance to eat there this time. Will definitely check it out next visit.

We can't wait to come back!

We had a very nice stay here. Beautifull view on the ocean, large room, delicious dinner ( excellent bolognese spaghettis!) and very good wines. Also, you have beautifull paintings in the lobby and the corridors that proves you that you are in excellent company!
A lot of things to do around, like seeing the whales, playing golf, riding horses, beautifull walks, nice little towns, surfing of course, beautifull beaches....
We would love to come back!

Room Tip: Rooms with view on the ocean are just perfect.

Hi Athena & Michael.

Thank you for the honest and positive respond.

We are aware of the limited height access to car park, and we manage all the big cars on our front platform, which has no height limit.
Regards the staircase in the centre of the building, it join the different levels, and in some ways it is a journey that take you from reception level to restaurant level and then to your top level room.

Anyhow, we are glad you enjoyed your time at Park Ridge Retreat, and it is very nice of you to recommend it to other.

Best Regards
Mosh

Clean and comfortable room with a balcony and a distant view of the ocean. Friendly and helpful staff. We were able to have a late check out which was great. It is located in the centre of town which is great for eating out and only a short distance from the beach. There was a nice restaurant and the food looked good but we didn't get the chance to try it. The only negative was the noisy air conditioning unit when we switched it off and opened the window we were kept awake by other rooms outside units despite that we would stay here again.

Hi Iha.

Thank you for the positive review, and sorry it took us so long to respond (we are just recovering of the summer holidays period).
We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed the dinner in our restaurant. The restaurant was reopened just before Christmas, and all feedback are welcome. It is our way to better ourselves.

Hope to see you again sometime in future.

Best Regards
Moshe

What a beautiful time my partner and I had last week at Park Ridge Retreat!

The guy [who we discovered was the proprietor], who greeted us on arrival was very welcoming and made us feel very much at home. Great room, simple decor, very clean and priceless view from the balcony looking towards the ocean

We opted for the the special 2-course dinner with a free bottle of house wine. We enjoyed well-cooked fresh food with options being salt & pepper squid and smoked salmon & rocket salad followed by Mediterranean-style chicken or succulent rare rib-eye beef.

The holiday was a last minute escape from Sydney for the weekend and we will definitely be back.

Hi Sokoni.
Thank you for the review.
Very impressive of a guest to study the menu so well, I suppose you are a person in the food industry. I am glad you enjoyed your meal, and also our special meal promotion, which include the complementary bottle of Chatsworth Estate wine.

Wishing you all the best and hope to host you hear again.

Moshe
