Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Property's Favourite Review
Once again i get to write about this truly magical place. I went to Manderley last year and stayed in the Terrace Apartment. (See earlier review.) This time we stayed in the "treetops Apartment". WOW. I really thought you could not top the Terrace but the Treetops is at another level again. From the room, the King size bed, The kitchen with everything you need to cook in if you so desire, the inclusions like eggs, bacon, cereal, milk, bread, drinks, etc etc etc. The spa was magical and so relaxing. Plus all the extras that are on offer at no extra charge like port, chocolates etc. Robyn, the hostess is such a wonderful human being, gracious, friendly, helpful with lots of information about Leura that we may need. I can honestly say it was one of the most pleasurable experiences i have ever had. There was nothing i could add/need to make the few days we spent there any better. If you want a truly romantic location with just about all inclusions, this is it. Magical Manderley truly lives up to the expectations that are spoken about. I would give this wonderful place a 6 Star rating. See for your self. I guarantee you will agree. Henry

Thank you very much Henry for your wonderful Review. We were delighted to welcome you back to Manderley - this time to 'Treetops'. So pleased you enjoyed the large spa (same as in The Terrace) and the little complimentary extras on arrival. It was a pleasure to have you both again and hope you may return - perhaps in Spring when Leura is stunning. Take care and our sincere appreciation and very best wishes. Regards, Robyn

We have just returned from a 2 night stay with friends at Magical Manderlay Leura. Robyn our host made us feel so welcome and our apartments were lovely . She catered to your needs so well from chocolates on arrival to full breakfast requirements . Set back off the road making it a very quiet location and a short walk to Leura Mall. A must for anyone wanting a quiet getaway. Thank you Robyn we enjoyed every minute

We had a lovely relaxing weekend and wonderful stay at Manderley. Truly Magical it was! The accommodation was lovely with gas fireplace and huge spa bath along with plenty of soft towels and a super comfy bed. Also being only minutes walk to Leura shops, cafe's and restaurants the location couldn't be better. The warmth and generosity of the host, Robyn was above and beyond. Nothing was too much trouble and lovely treats were provided for our enjoyment including an abundant supply of fresh breakfast goodies. We will certainly be visiting again and often. Thank you Robyn.

We have been returning to Magical Manderley for several years. Arriving each year is as good as returning home! As always our five day stay was perfect in every way. We enjoy the spaciousness of Treetops, the comfort - (love the fire), kitchen facilities and the many extras thoughtfully provided. Manderley is perfectly located, an easy walk to Leura village but very quiet. Robyn is the perfect hostess, around to answer any questions on where to visit etc. but never intrusive. We have booked again for our usual August visit next year. Thank you Robyn for ensuring yet again that Manderley never disappoints us. Jill and Robert

Absolutely the best luxury couples accommodation in Leura/Blue Mountains. The Tuscan ambiance and beautiful gardens set the stage for Robyn to spoil us just a little more. The self contained kitchen offers the best in comfort and will return you to Magical Manderley on a regular basis.

My experience with Magical Manderley's was nothing short of exceptional. The value provided by Robyn come in the form of a professional & personal touch every step of the way. The service, communication and elegant accommodation made the trip very special. Highly recommended for anyone seeking to escape the daily hustle & bustle for a rich and relaxing holiday. Without a doubt the most positive experience I have to this date in the hunt for luxury accomodation.

Magical Manderley. Our home away from home. Robyn Paddington made us feel so welcome and embodies the true meaning of the word hospitality. Complimentary breakfast supplies, cheese and bikkies, fruit, juice, sparkling water, beer, sparkly, cake, biscuits and chocolates. And she topped up our chocolates, and sparkly! We knew when she’d done the housekeeping to bring fresh towels when the lamps and heater were on, the candle was lit, a newspaper and music playing. Robyn is a gem. So friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The self contained unit Treetops is so cozy and well appointed with nothing missed and attention to detail. Even an umbrella at the front door. I can’t recommend Magical Manderley enough and hope you get the chance to experience Robyn’s warmth and hospitality. Nicki

Always happy to present some little extras on arrival and top up for longer stays. Although Manderley is self-contained, its a pleasure to keep an eye on used towels etc. Take care Nicky and would be wonderful to welcome you back here - perhaps in Spring when Leura is stunning.

Robyn welcomed us like old friends and made us feel at home. Our room was warm and comfortable. So many lovely touches, including a cake, chocolates and generous breakfast supplies. All amenities were of a high standard including large fluffy towels plus the latest magazines. Leura is a wonderful destination for a mid week break and dinner at the local pub 'Alexandra' on steak night was a bonus. Thank you Robyn for my beautiful birthday gift...another special personal touch.

Absolutely fantastic - from the stylish & lush furnishings, comfortable beds, couples spa, to the welcome drinks, snacks, and breakfast supplies included with the room, Robyn has considered absolutely everything required for the perfect romantic getaway. And if you decide to leave the room, everything you need is a short walk or drive away. Cannot recommend Magical Manderley highly enough.
