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 spent two nights experiencing hospitality that was better then exceptional. Having visited many B&Bs over the years throughout the work, "The Laurels" was by far the most genuine and professionally delivered. Linda and David not only warmly welcomed us with enthusiasm with family like hospitality but continued throughout the duration of our stay. There attention to detail was meticulously presented in all respects. This also include thorough local knowledge as well as worldly experienced conversation. Outstanding functions included the wine and cheese served at 5.30PM each evening in the drawing room with all guest present together. This was abundantly accompanied with with relaxed conversation initially introduced by Linda which felt much like a relaxed family gathering. The breakfasts was a cumulative experience of superb culinary art created by David and attentively presented by Linda. Our room was well appointed, appropriately sized, notably a comfortable bed ensuring a comforting quiet sleep. The on-suite was extremely clean and well ventilated. There were also many thoughtful extras accompanying the provision of tea and coffee. "The Laurels" provide elegant old fashion service and hospitality. In the surrounds , the perfume of the magnificent roses and other varieties of colorful flowers that were blooming at this period of the year made ambling around the gardens an uplifting experience. "The Laurels" is highly recommended as a destination to enjoy Kangaroo Valley which is located about 2 hours car travel south of Sydney New South Wales Australia. We look forwad to our return visit.

What a gem the Laurels is - a beautiful historic house surrounded by rambling private gardens and beautiful pastoral land. The interior is a collectors dream with incredible antiques and interesting furnishings throughout. Hosts Lindy and David truly spoil their guests with wine and snacks in the room, a complementary wine and cheese cocktail hour and an incredible cooked breakfast. Rooms were very comfortable and well appointed. This is definitely a hidden gem.

A beautiful home with two lovely hosts, Lindy and David. Room was great, bed was nice and the pillows were fantastic. Great breakfast the next day which featured scrambled eggs, mushrooms, lovely toast and juice. A lovely spot to hide away from modern society

A step back a few decades to a traditional B&B where the hosts are happy for a chat and provide evening snacks and a drink. Many of the accommodation we stayed at in our trip had no human interaction when arriving or leaving, so was refreshing to be greeted and farewelled by Lindy. Enjoyed our overnight stay here and the cooked breakfast. Many books and old furniture are a highlight of the residence.

Lovely home full of beautiful antique furniture, with very welcoming hosts. Our room was large & comfortable with all amenities. Breakfast is served at an impressive dining table with china table ware. Lindy cooked a great English breakfast & was happy to tell us about the history of her property & the Kangaroo Valley. She also offered us cheese & wine the previous evening but unfortunately we didn’t make it back in time from a walk around Fitzroy Falls.

Lindy and David have a beautiful home and were such great hosts. They made us feel very welcome and gave us some great tips for walks and how to access them given there were a number of roads closed following the floods earlier this year. And so many books! Thank you for an enjoyable stay.

I stayed at The Laurels for a birthday weekend with some friends and family and it was a sublime wonderful experience. David and Lindy were so caring and helped me with so many requests putting together the weekend. They were attentive to every detail: emailing about how to enter the valley after the recent land slips and road damage; providing their dining room and cutlery for a private dinner even though it was extra work for them; allowing mobile masseuses to be brought on site; providing wine and a delectable nibbles platter every night; and of course the delicious breakfasts cooked by David every morning. It was just SO NICE, I didn’t want to go home.

The Laurels was a great country escape - Lindy was the perfect host. We enjoyed chatting with her and other guests for wine and cheese, as well as during breakfast. We also enjoyed exploring the garden on the property and just relaxing in our room. It's a short drive to town for restaurants and also an easy drive to nearby bushwalks.
