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.

We knew before we booked that this would be special. How special we could never have guessed! From the moment we arrived until (sadly) we had to leave, the entire experience was absolutely top shelf. Splendid rooms, with every conceivable inclusion, all replenished daily. A fridge full of a mountain of breakfast delights, coffees and teas of the highest calibre. Sumptuous fresh towels every day, and a great log fire awaiting us on arrival. And then there is Robyn, our host who became our treasured friend over the duration of our stay. We have never felt so welcome and absolutely at home on a holiday as we did here. Manderley is an experience everyone should have the chance to enjoy at least once. Thankyou so much Robyn. We look forward to seeing you again before year's end. Fondly, James & Hannah

Property's Favourite Review
I didn’t know I was stressed until I arrived with hubbie at Manderley and immediately felt the worries of the world melt away. The relaxation started as soon as we walked up the driveway and were met by Robyn, the most adorable, attentive host who ushered us into another world of ambient tranquility. Robyn provides the most superior service and her gorgeous property (we stayed in the Treetops suite) was so charming, so luxurious and so relaxing. Everything has been thought of and more. Little personal inclusions (such as foods to cater for a gluten free diet) and a genuine friendly welcome started our 2 day experience in the heart of Leura but tucked away from the street, so you felt completely private and secluded. The suite was spacious (really much more than just a suite) and cosy at the same time. It was warm and inviting from the moment we climbed up the stairs to arrive at the sanctuary. The provisions were more than generous and the decor is exquisite. You can tell host Robyn just loves her business, her beautiful property and also, her guests. For a private and quiet getaway for a couple, but so conveniently located to all the upper Mountains has to offer, you can’t go past Manderley. We can’t wait to book our next stay.

Our dear guests, Thank you for the lovely Review - appreciate it very much. So good to hear you were able to relax and rejuvenate at Manderley for your getaway. Having restored Manderley in 2000, we are indeed very proud and enjoy meeting our new guests and many regulars. Never any trouble to include some little gluten free provisions in our complimentary breakfast things - bread, cereal etc. - its a pleasure. Always nice to hear our position is appreciated by guests - away from road, in a garden setting and just a stroll to popular Leura Village, great restaurants, galleries, tea rooms etc. and our European style decor. Take care and hope to welcome you back to Manderley in the future. Best wishes. Regards, Robyn

So perfect once again, always look forward to coming up to Magical Manderley and seeing Robyn. As always TREE TOPS is so beautiful as the preferred room for us and will never disappoint. Robyn is a fantastic host as always along with all the generous products and gifts that she supplies. The place to stay if you want a special memory.

My hubby and I had a the most romantic and memorable wedding anniversary at Leura’s Magical Manderley. Thank you to Robyn for your warm welcome and your special touches to make our anniversary weekend away special. From the sweets, classical romantic music playing on arrival to the Terrace and inside the terrace. Candles lit, roses. Complimentary sweets, cake and a little bubbly to go with it. Thank you for the little tour of the terrace on arrival. Robyn you’re a special lady and we hope to see you again in the near future on one of our next bookings in the terrace. Maybe we might try the treetop house next. I would thoroughly recommend the Magical Manderley for your next stay.

If you're planning a getaway to the Blue Mountains, you must stay at the Magical Manderley. Robyn is a fantastic host who provided everything you could have thought of to make it such a magical experience. There was champagne, chocolates, cheese and crackers, sherry, bacon, eggs, juice - the lot! She even surprised us with a carrot cake upon arrival. Every detail was well-thought out. All towels provided were fluffy and soft. The place was beautifully heated, in the heart of Leura which was convenient to get to the shops but yet quiet and peaceful. Thank you for such a wonderful stay!

Mandalay offers an oasis in the Blue Mountains. Robyn has created a beautiful venue that offers a comfortable, quiet relaxing venue to rejuvenate or use as a base for touring the district. Mandalay id located within east walking distance of the Mall, quality shops, cafes and a great restaurant: Mr Collins. The facility is impeccably furnished and equipped. Robyn has generously added snacks, chocolates and breakfast food that add a very personal touch to her warm welcome. Her attention to detail, cleanliness and comfort are out of this world ! We recommend this venue without reservation!

This is a truly exquisite property and Robyn is the most welcoming but discreet host. Everything you could desire is here on arrival including champagne, beer and sherry and of course lovely chocolates and sweet treats. The fridge is stocked with provisions for breakfast and everything you need for a short break in this truly magical place. Luxurious fluffy towels and high end toiletries are perfect for a pampered short break. The host, Robyn, is a wealth of information about local restaurants and cafes and does everything to make your stay truly memorable. This is the only place we will stay in the Blue Mountains and we have recommended it to our family and friends. It really does live up to its name of 'Magical Manderley'. Thank you Robyn for a wonderful short break in this special place.

Luxury indulgence, from an experienced expert, in the best part of town! "Manderley" nestles in beautiful gardens in a quiet, refined street just a stroll away from Leura's stylish shops and restaurants. A great base to explore the Blue Mountains any time of the year, with everything you could possibly need - yummy breakfast treats daily restocked in the fridge - along with cheese, wine, and chocolate as well. We were thoroughly spoilt! Robyn's lavish hospitality - tout comfort, in five star accommodation - is a hard act to beat. "Treetops" is a stylish apartment, boasting top-grade amenities (including a well-equipped kitchen) hosted by someone you'll be delighted to meet! Whatever you do, make a visit to Manderley. Thank you, Robyn. We'll definitely be back! With much gratitude and affection DAVE and EILEEN
