It's a semi casual restaurant. You walk up to order and pay but from then on it's table service. I was tempted with a beef pie while my partner chose the roast pork. Our guests had the roast pork and barramundi. The is a very extensive choice and ours was all very good. A table near us seemed to be...

Set adjacent to the original Cobb & co. Coach House, Briars, the motel has a lovely view over the original flats of the farm which was attached to SCEGGS MossVale, as was Briars part of the same school. The room has a layout that is a pleasant variation on the standard country motel. Clean & bright, with a dining/lounge area...

This place was amazing. Staff were super friendly and the room was huge and very romantic. Great location from Bowral and berrima. Not very vegan friendly. But the pub has a great beer selection and the gardens are lovely with ducks and gazebo

Very clean, quiet and spacious accommodation overlooking magnificent gardens and small lake. Bed was comfortable and nice seating area.. A lovely restaurant adjacent to accommodation with open fire places. We had a lovely stay and we'll be back!

Stayed at the hotel to attend a friends wedding. The rooms are beginning to age but they are clean and have a lovely view of the gardens and pond. We went to the restaurant for dinner and it was great! The Szechuan prawns were amazing and the band playing on the night were talented and loads of fun. The next...

Nice country location. Good outdoor are for drinks and the kids area is great. Our entrees were ok but our mains meal was really bad and the service was poor. Expensive meals for what we were served. Probably would not go there again. Extremely disappointing. If I visited again it would only be for an afternoon drink and snack.

Spent 3 nights here in October and found our room to be rather cold and drafty caused in part by the French doors at the rear not sealing although locked. Bathroom also very chilly. The shower itself and hot water were fine. Very noisy exhaust fan. There was a functional air conditioner but the old wall heater in the bathroom...

Really liked the rooms which all look out on a lake with bird life, flowers and trees surrounding it - creates a tranquil atmosphere. The room was an interesting set up with lots of space and a separate area for sitting which looked out through double glass doors at the view. Sort of 1970's style but brought into our time...

Called into Briars by chance travelling from Melbourne back to Nth Coast. We just wish it was closer to our home as we would become regulars. Very spacious room with great outlook and very well appointed. Rooms are 2 tiered and open out to well maintained gardens and lake. Restaurant and bar very good, dinner have breakfast but enjoyed evening...
