Location is great, and staff very attentive, getting me ironing facilities quickly, however a bar fridge is sorely needed so guests may store early morning breakfast if leaving early (or for anything else). Even the most basic Air BNB SC has this facility, and there is plenty of space for it. I stayed in December in an East facing room, and needed lights on at 3pm when I checked in, and again on a cloudy morning next day, as these rooms are dark. Despite this, thank you hosts for a lovely stay.

It’s a beautiful relaxing location, rooms are a little dated though. Small tv, the fan and air conditioning were very noisy and the door to the room was hard to close. Bed was hard, found it difficult to sleep. Shame because it is a great location, just needs to be updated.

Location was great, very easy to walk into Bowral to shops and cafes. Parking is free and plenty of spaces available. The room was very small and basic, but very clean. No fridge but tea and coffee making facilities are available.

Aloof service, dreadful bitter pod coffee from the bar, restaurant closed next morning so no breakfast available there (this wasn't communicated at time of booking or check-in), very thin old towels in bathroom, cobwebs in ceiling, front window was left open and only discovered in the morning after wondering why it was so cold and noisy, water from shower floods out to the bathroom floor, shower wash had run out, checkout was not available as receptionist couldn't access the office at 9.30am. Paid her the $8 for the awful coffees from the previous day.
