We stayed at Tanwarra Lodge during the last week of July. Accomodation is just perfect, beautiful and clean but there was one very important aspect missing here, friendliness and service with a smile. This sentiment was felt throughout our stay and by all the members...More

About
Description
Tanwarra lodge is on Turon River, just three kilometres from the historic village of Sofala, Tanwarra Lodge has strove to be the best accommodation venue in the district and was proud to be awarded a ...More 41/2star rating from AAA Tourism.We are a family run business made up of a husband and wife team of Warren and Sue Hill who personally built Tanwarra Lodge from the ground up over the past fifteen years and live on site.We strive to make every guest, whether it's overnight or a week, come away from their stay with us feeling like we do, that the Turon Valley is one of NSW best kept secrets.When you come here most people comment on the peace and quiet and just how good it is to hear the sounds of the water over the rocks in the river and the birds in the trees.One of the best things about Tanwarra Lodge is its size or the lack of it; it is a very small intermit accommodation location with the Gust House normally only sleeping four people in two private bed rooms both with their own unsuits and no children allowed. In addition the Guest house has all the luxury appointments such as Ducted Air-conditioning, heated bathroom floors, heated towel rails, Open fire place, outdoor six person heated spa, Wi-Fi internet connection, TV, phone connection to the main house, spectacular views of the Turon River and country side, not to mention the native Australian animals.The other accommodation is the Riverside Cabin which is set closer to the river and about one hundred meters from the Guest House which can sleep two adults and two children. Included in the Riverside Cabin are the following: - Large covered deck with table and chairs, BBQ and Spa Bath, Air-conditioning, TV/DVD, CD player, phone connection to the main house. Less
