“MY 5OTH BIRTHDAY WEEKEND”
Reviewed 9 December 2013

Gorgeous place and so quiet and peaceful. We invited 2 couples from Gosford to join us for a weekend and were blown away by the view, serenity and the comfort. Owner is very personable and helpful and suggested places to eat etc. We even dined at Georges Paragon and he and his wife were there and came over to our table for a chat.
Plenty of brekkie provisions were provided also for both mornings.
Our four friends were very happy with the accommodation and it was great showing off part of our wonderful state to our NSW friends.
I was very happy with the place and would recommend it again and again.

Quiet, Clean and spacious accommodation. The scenery is beautiful, the beds are comfortable and to our great delight, had ELECTRIC blankets on the beds. This thoughtful addition was very much appreciated as the night we arrived was very cold (for us).
My elderly mother was kept warm and comfortable at night.
We have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending this beautiful retreat to anyone looking for peace and quite in beautiful surroundings. We intend to stay here again in the near future.
PS the bacon and eggs brekky was nice too!!

Room Tip: We had a room at the front of the property which, having a 91 YO mother, was very convenient to the...

I have not idea what the others have been smoking, but here is a truthful rendition of staying at Woodleigh. We arrived at 2pm and were given one of the far cabins along the tree line. Worth noting that 2 cabins are stacked next to each other, with one below. And farther along another large cabin has another cabin below.The walls are thin and we had to report a thumping to the manager when we arrived in our bedroom. Turns out the fan below was misaligned and was making a racket, which he turned off, then discussed reporting to his maintenance guy. The place is very shabby. The spa jets did not work and it became a giant bath. The taps are rusty, there are cracks in the window shades and the towel stand is peeling. The windows were dirty, the curtains are dusty and the place smelt of mildew when we arrived, which took an hour to clear. It has a certain country charm, but the wooden furniture was so tired and worn with scratches it felt like you were staying a mates rustic cabin, surrounded by the second hand stuff he got off ebay.The city view can be achieved, by walking to the edge of the garden and looking to your left while standing about 1/2 acre away from the cabins. There is a small viewing platform for you to stand on. Otherwise the vista is of the garden enormous garden and nearby mountains. Why did the owner crammed the cabins together and left all that open space, because it was cheaper. And that cheapness shows up again and again.
The bacon, eggs and toast for breakfast were great, but if your idea of a B&B does not involve you cooking breakfast, or doing the cleaning up (lest pay the $25 fee), then reconsider. The owner was friendly and genuine, however the swimming pool when I tried it was filthy with debris and when I left, prompted him to start cleaning it. Worst still at 12.45am I had to rudely go down and ask the people below to turn their fan back off as they had come home and it switched back on. So embarrassing, but we could not sleep with thump thump thump.
He says the place is almost constantly booked solid. Based on the glowing reports I have read I was enthusiastic too, but at $200 per night we felt the place was over priced, run down, worn out and they are coasting on their name. There are no late check outs (10am you go), and when asked what time he would like us to leave, he joked "7am would be great!". Which made one feel so welcome. They do not help with the bags and there are stairs. Even at the reduced $160 I would prefer to stay at home, it's quieter.
Finally he asked that we leave the key in the door, and go without giving any notice. KISS he advised us, great for him but also means that the customer has no chance to give feedback of their stay. So he stays oblivious, and even then I suspect he would respond very personally.
It's your money, it's for you to decide who is telling you the truth and who has been drinking the coolaid and smoking some great weed. Thanks for reading.

Room Tip: Try not to get cabin 5,6 or any of the lower cabins, the walls are thin.

My partner and I had a weekend away here. It was so quiet and peaceful with beautiful views. The bed has to be hands down the most comfortable bed we have EVER slept in whilst away on holiday. I would recommend this retreat for a no fuss easy, relaxing place to stay.

We had this trip planed 3 months in advance , so it was on , unfortunately the weather man could not help us , We phoned for directions and the Homestead was helpfull with there directions to the B & B , leaving brisbane for quiet drive into the country and Mountains
As we gained hight into the Mt Tambourine area ,down came the rain , as Woodleigh Homestead is on the top of the range the visibility reduced as we drove through the rain and misty clouds , we need a GPS as visability was low ,
Finally found the homestead and drove down the cloud swirling driveway , we where very welcomed by the caretaker ( Trichia i believe )

The room we had was a one bedroom which was great , the TV was small for the room size but the tv bracket on the wall showed that this must be a replacement and had not been replaced , we had breaky in the fridge as there where cooking utensils in the room , looking out the window the cloud was in for the night as visiblity would be 50 feet ,

Asking the reception of what to see we where given directions to where we would like to see , if this was a summer visit the place would be a bit better
The area was very quiet and easy to relax , opening the back door and all the birds in the area believe its feeding time and pop in to visit
With the amount of rain that fell there was the distant smell of excess water , we lost access to water on our departure due to power problems ,

overall a pleasant stay , the weather cant be changed , but with rain and mist we still saw what we wanted to see , had a good time , down the road is the St Bernards pub which has the St Bernards dogs in the bar ,walking around

remembering this is a B&B not a hotel the stay was good ( rain was the problem )
.

We recently had a 3 night stay and found the location excellent as we do not mind driving.
However in saying that, for those who do not like to drive at night in an unfamiliar area, I suggest having a main meal at lunchtime and something light for dinner in your room.

There are basic cooking facilities i.e. a microwave, electric frypan, toaster and cutlery/crockery. There is no stove top.
Lovely bacon and eggs were provided for us to cook ourselves.

Lovely views of the valley below and lovely to see two welcoming ponies and a young alpaca meet us at the gate.

The rooms are spacious, linen lovely and clean. I would suggest that new pillows would be a bonus for comfort.

Spent a relaxing day/night at Woodleigh Homestead. Must say that its location, with stunning views of the Gold Coast, and the resort grounds, are the highlights of the resort. We did enjoy our suite...spacious and comfortable, but a bit on the rustic side (could use a wee face-lift). Spa and gas "woodstove" added to the ambiance. Our hosts were lovely...very friendly and accommodating. Recommended for the romantic at heart who just need a night (or two) away..
