We stayed in Pademelon, a lovely timber cabin hidden in the woods. Although chilly there was an electric fire which soon warmed things up and there is also a wood burning stove for when it gets really cold. The kitchen area was well equipped and the whole place was very comfortable blue. The staff gave us lots of info about... More

A group of five of us stayed in 3 cottages for one night. Very informative and helpful reception guy who assisted us to quickly get organised for a walk from Waldheim's hut to Marion's lookout. Cabins were warm and clean and very comfortable. If you're looking for an experience different to the usual chain hotel/resort I would highly recommend this... More

I was highly impressed with this place. It's got the modern conveniences with rustic charm. There's enough privacy between the cottages and its peaceful and quiet. I would come back here in a heartbeat!

Where to start! After a long day hike at Cradle, arrival at the cottage is heavenly. Check in was easy, staff very friendly. Cottage tucked in away from the road so it's very quiet. Room is amazing. A wood burner as heating source is delightful. The spa bath is very relaxing and can easily accommodate two tired adults. The little... More

We have repeatedly stayed in Pandani and love the layout and space. It is happily situated amongst old trees and bushes. If you are lucky and keep your eyes open, you can watch pademelons, an echidna or wombat and many birds from the cottage. The gas fire is very practical to get warm quickly. The cottage is not new, but... More

Unfortunately we only stayed one night in this beautiful place. We stayed in the Telopea cottage which had a lovely fire, a full kitchen, dvds, books, a spa and a comfortable large bed. We were not aware of any other person in any other cottage nearby although I am sure there were people around. The cottage was spotlessly clear, the... More
