My boyfriend and I had a very romantic and relaxing weekend away at Bells. We treated ourselves to the 'Escape Package' which includes a degustation dinner at Manfredi's and also an a'la carte dinner as well. The food was absolutely amazing as was the service. I highly recommend going to dinner a little earlier than booked and having a cocktail...

We went to this place for may mothers birthday as it was her choice. I had been there previously when I had been given a voucher for my 50th birthday from my family and I should have insisted we go elsewhere based on that experience. I understand it is difficult to get staff in regional areas of Australia but within...

I recently stayed at Bells and it was exquisite, the villas are beautiful and the staff were very friendly, kind and genuine. My sister got married at Bells and all went smooth!

This is our second stay at the property, last visiting in December 2013. We don't know of another short-break property of this standard, within easy reach of Sydney. The private garden setting sets it apart from other hotel-like experiences and the individual cottages are delightful. We appreciated being acknowledged as repeat guests by the friendly and professional staff and the...

Bells is in a lovely setting on the central coast. Pretty views and beautiful gardens. The villas are well appointed and nicely furnished. They are fairly quiet but you can hear neighbours if you are adjoining another villa. If you are a vegetarian, don't expect much from the restaurant - I had the same grain salad served up three days...

Everything was perfect, the venue, the food, the local surrounds, but it was the friendly, helpful and welcoming staff that made it a truly special weekend. We ate like kings and then walked it off on local bush walks before relaxing in the room with a glass of wine in front of the fire.

I expected a lot, when invited to a celebration lunch, in a private dining room, as I have heard so many wonderful reports, regarding Bells, & coming all the way from an area like Noosa, this restaurant did not disappoint.

Had the most relaxing weekend away at Bells. The accommodation was really clean and comfortable, and the property was just so beautiful - we really loved our Lakeside Villa. The service at reception and at Manfredi's was professional, but not stuffy - just really friendly, knowledgeable and unobtrusive. Our two Manfredi meals (one in the restaurant and one room service),...
