“Perfect again”
Reviewed 22 November 2013

In October last year we stayed two days at the Woolrich garden suite; this year three days in the two bedroom Woolrich Retreat cottage. I'm not going to say much this time around because my rave review last year, entitled "Perfect," could just as easily apply to the experience we had in 2013. We loved every minute of the stay. To top it off, this year, a lyre bird actually performed his dance for us just outside the kitchen window. Mary ensured that our stay was memorable and was very helpful in giving local advice. All the rooms were beautifully appointed and comfortable. One small matter: the mattress in the second bedroom was a little soft for our taste. But, overall, we have rarely experienced such splendid feelings of relaxation and retreat. We'll be back.

We recently stayed at Woolrich for our Melbourne wedding. The cottage was perfect, clean, beautifully appointed and the gardens are stunning. We had lunch on the verandah when the weather cooperated and in front of the fire when it didn't. Everything possible was there lovely crockery, BBQ tools, serving bowls,etc etc. I cannot fault the beautiful accommodation. The breakfast is absolutely amazing, very high quality food and plenty of it. We visited friends accommodation in the area of a similar price and nothing was comparable. Mary took extra good care and made sure we were organized without being intrusive. A magical spot, we will be back! Thanks

Our Family have just stayed here and it is simply perfect. We have stayed in Olinda a few times and this is by FAR the BEST! Mary is truly a gem, going out of her way to make sure we were comfortable. My children did not want to leave any more than my husband and I did. Beautiful cottage.. huge breakfast provisions, stunning gardens. What we appreciated the most was that our 3 daughters were more than welcome. This is a location that we found to be couples preferred but our children were welcomed with opened arms. Thanks Mary.. we will be back each October. The Wards, Horsham.

Thank you so much for your review. We love having children in the cottage and the woods are like a magic garden. Just occasionally you get a glimpse of a wallaby as I did yesterday! We look forward to seeing you again.

We'd driven down from the Blue Mountains in NSW and couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. The garden is gorgeous and what a treat to be able to wander around at leisure there and Cloudhill next door. The accommodation was fantastic with plenty of wonderful food supplied for more than enough breakfasts. Mary is a wonderful host aleays keen to see if anything is needed. The ample supply of firewood was great for the cooler nights. The bed was comfortable, kitchen well stocked and the spa a treat. It was so relaxing sitting on the verandah overlooking the garden and we were sorry the stay couldn't be longer than 5 nights.

This place is truly the best to rejuvenate all our senses and relax from the hectic schedule of the week. Mary is a wonderful host and takes care of her guests as if they were her family members... All the little things are taken care of... The jacuzzi here is the icing on the cake.. What a wonderful place to relax.. Would definitely return here again and again...

Thank you for your lovely words about Woolrich. We enjoyed having you stay and look forward to seeing you again - hopefully next time you'll get your steak!. Woolrich is about to burst into bloom. Well the daffodils are already out as are some of the rhododendrons and camellias but the next two months are truly glorious.

My daughter and I stayed one night in the garden suite, which was absolutely delightful. The garden the suite overlooks is magnificent & a beautiful spot to explore!!
We thoroughly enjoyed all the quality breakfast provisions & biscuits which were left.
The fire was set up and ready to light & the ample timber for the fire which was supplied kept the whole suite warm, and we didn't need to use the ducted heating.

My daughter described this place as 'magical' and she is quite right.

We go away for a girls weekend every year, my mum, me and 2 sisters. Woolrich is the best by far, the homely atmosphere made us feel instantly relaxed. You have thought of everything from the generous breakfast provisions to the wine, comfy beds,spa, lovely comfy couches to sit in by the open fire, just wonderful. We stayed 2 nights but wanted to stay longer so much so that we have booked again for next year. It is a beautiful spot, enhanced by wonderful accomodation, highly recommend.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
WELCOME TO WOOLRICH RETREAT In Woolrich's historic five-acre woodlands you will find our two luxury retreats where guests will enjoy the very best bed & breakfast accommodation available in the Dandenong Ranges. Privacy, open fires, spas, ensuites, decks with BBQs overlooking the gardens and free entry to Cloudehill Gardens next door. Walk, laze by the fire, relax in the spa or soak in the view with a glass of wine. The perfect Yarra Valley & Dandenong Ranges getaway. WOOLRICH COTTAGE Built in the 1920s, the cottage's Art Deco features have been retained and restored to create this elegant accommodation. Fine furniture complements the period architectural features such as the Art Deco leadlight windows. The cottage includes two bedrooms with large ensuites, so two couples can enjoy equal luxury as well as an indoor, four person Jacuzzi hot tub under a glass skylight. The lounge room has an open fire, and a bay window with dining table. The kitchen has granite bench tops and a farmhouse sink. French doors open up onto a deck with a BBQ and outdoor furniture for alfresco dining with garden and mountain views. GARDEN RETREAT In French Provence style, the Garden Retreat is perfect for one couple with its king-size bed and double spa (separate shower). Miele appliances in the kitchen, leadlight windows, in the bathroom and bedroom, TV with Foxtel and DVD and a lovely open wood fire in the cosy lounge room makes this an experience to remember. Outside, the balcony, complete with BBQ, and art deco table and chairs sits at the edge of a canopy of trees. Walk down the steps next to your retreat and open the gate to Cloudehill Gardens or go the other way into the Woolrich Woodlands with its meandering paths, lyrebirds, azalea maze and the dell. OLINDA VILLAGE Olinda is one of the major villages of the hills. It is close to the winery district of Yarra Valley and Puffing Billy, a steam train which goes to Emerald. It is the centre of many famous gardens. Just along the road is the National Rhododendron Garden, there are many other national and private gardens which are open to the public. You can go and pick raspberries and strawberries in season, visit the trout farm, or see William Rickett's sanctuary where he created sculptures honouring the aborigines. It is a delight to shop in the villages which is full of all kinds of shops with unusual things for sale. ... more   less
