Everything was absolutely lovely (with the possible exception of a slightly blunt bread knife), warm and welcoming (without being intruded on by fellow travellers or staff). The amenities and atmosphere had a lovely old-world charm, without any ‘old&musty’ to it. Our room was beyond spacious and even gave us a bird’s eye view, through a gap on the leafy tree foliage, of the towers of Melbourne CBD in the far distance. it was well stocked, beautifully appointed and truly peaceful. We loved it!

Cute little cottage nested in the trees.

Pros: Location and warmth
Cons: Initial smell?
Location: It is 100 meters away from the observatory, on the same raod, so you can wander up there and not have to pay for a car entry. Kelly Cafe in Olinda.
We booked very late into the mid week school holiday for my partner and I and was loathed to pay the rate. However, we thoroughly enjoyed our visit, surrounded by mist and fog, but clear enough at times to see the city highlighted at a distance. A very romantic getaway in comfortable semi private surroundings. It smell of ax when pip first walked in, and mind the 4 poster bed if you're anywhere near 6 foot tall...

Quiet getaway in beautiful scenery.

I absolutely loved staying right on top of the Mountain at Arnica Views. Friendly staff, stunning location and very peaceful. My only complaint would be a couple of minor maintenance issues, but really, it’s nitpicking. A genuinely fantastic place for a quiet getaway. Will definitely visit again.

Quiet and Peaceful Couples Retreat

Pros: It was quiet and peaceful with nature outside your doorstep, feed the birds outside or sit in the spa inside, the cabin layout was perfect.
Cons: Nothing, except stay there two nights next time.
Location: Sky Restaurant about 400m up the road with amazing city views, craft shops, restaurants, cafes only a short drive away
The Barn was the ideal overnight getaway set in the tranquil nature reserve of the owner's property, only a short walk or Limo drive to the Sky restaurant with the amazing city views.
