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.

A couples breakaway, the room or I should say rooms, as the kitchen area is seperate to the bedroom & obviously the bathroom. Th e kitchen had a dining table with 4 chairs, microwave, huge air fryer/oven, large fridge, toaster, kettle all the kitchen necessities. The bedroom a queen size bed ( comfortable) bed side tables on each side, reasonable sized tv ( wall mounted) 3 seater lounge, side tables, coffee table. Excellent reverse cycle air conditioning. Bathroom is large, although the hot water does take some time to come to temperature. The accommodation rooms, free standing cottages are rustic but clean & very comfortable, wake up in the morning to birdsong & no traffic or neighbour noise! Lovely outlook over the grapevines, the staff were very friendly & helpful.

We booked the “Walk, wine and stay” package in a medium size room. We arrived early and was quickly checked into our room as it was ready by the friendly lady on reception.

We stayed in the servants quarters 27 which was spacious and comfortable. The building is 200 years old and obviously restored to keep its charm. The kitchenette had everything we needed to have basic meals with a microwave, fridge, kettle and toaster.

Our tour around the estate was with Bruno, who has worked at the estate for a long time. He was very knowledgeable and shared lots of interesting stories as we wandered the historic buildings and checked out some convict artifacts.

Our walk ended with a wine tasting and cheeseboard. The tasting was not rushed and the cheeseboard was very generous and delicious!!! After the tasting we selected our bottle of wine to take back to our room to enjoy at our leisure. Of course we also purchased plenty to take home.

Sadly the on site restaurant is not operating through the week (post Covid) so we had to venture out for dinner. Lots of options within a short drive. We decided upon Chinese but it is take away only (post Covid) so we grabbed some drinks and dessert before heading back to our accommodation.

The estate is 200 years old and full of history…. it is so much more than a winery. The old buildings give the accommodation lots of charm and character, although (clearly from other reviews) some people may just consider it old and rundown…. the history and original buildings are magnificent, internally the rooms are completely refurbished with comfortable amenities. Our room had 2 two seater lounges, dining table and 4 chairs, tv, basic kitchenette, outdoor table/chairs, queen bed with bathroom that had a good sized shower with plenty of hot water.

The highlight of our stay was the tour, it made our stay!! Learning about the convict settlement and history definitely added to the atmosphere and charm of Coolangatta Estate.

All in all a really lovely stay and we would definitely stay again.

Came for lunch with my daughter. It’s a beautiful spot, gorgeous view from the restaurant, and a relaxed atmosphere inside with a piano player .
Main meal was delicious , but dessert was a letdown. It was a tasting platter , and quite a few elements tasted a bit stale . Probably why they were all served warm ( even the cheesecake) to compensate. A selection of cakes , but no cream or ice cream served with it. And when we asked for coffee , we’re very surprised to be told they don’t do coffee !
May have been a post Christmas, post Covid issue, but it was a bit disappointing. Wouldn’t stop me coming back, the staff and location were lovely , so hopefully just a bad day!

Location, perfect, wines, perfection not to mention to food. Limited choices but done very very well. Accomodation clean neat tidy bed was super comfy. Breakfast and late checkout a bonus. Highly recommend that you take the time to visit.

We booked a couple of nights here just to get away from home and were very pleasantly surprised. Their website shows a whole rang of converted buildings turned into hotel rooms but the basic choice seems to be a "village room" which is basic or a "mini suite" which gives you a lot more. They are allocated when you arrive just like hotel rooms and you drive to your room and park nearby. We only booked a plain village room but this included a huge and very comfortable bed, soft furniture, dining table and minimal kitchen facilities. The furnishings and bathrooms are all new and clean, the air conditioning and tv all work fine but these are all quaint old historic buildings not a state of the art shiny hotel. We loved it. Also the room door opens on to the gardens which is lovely but the hotel warns that some of the smaller creature might want to join you in the room so you have to be understanding (lizards not spiders so all harmless). All of this means the air is clean and the ambience is quiet so relaxation is easy. Unfortunately right now their restaurant only opens on Saturday nights so we could not try that but their are several little towns within ten minutes drive or you can bring in wine and a pizza which we did one night. The roads around are not exactly busy so getting places is easy. This place made such a change from a normal boring hotel that we enjoyed it very much.

I stayed in Blacksmiths 17. The standard of the room was disappointing to say the least. One of the windows did not open. The sash of the window that did open was full of dirt and leaves. Basic cleaning should have removed these. The bathroom was too small to dress in. The toilet was broken, moved on the base and almost tipped me off when I was using it. The tiles around the toilet base were all broken. There were unrepaired holes in walls. I was not offered the option of purchasing the continental breakfast when booking so had to drive back into Nowra to a cafe. At nearly $200 a night room rate this standard was simply unacceptable.

Magnificent views and cute old fashion accommodation . Only stayed 1 night and was really impressed by this 3 star property. Yes the rooms are a little shabby but you are in the country! We stayed in queen bed in a little cottage. It has TV, microwave, toaster, kettle in the kitchenette which is perfect to enjoy a little something on your veranda. I would definitely recommend as it’s only about a 10 minute drive to Berry.

I had booked for Wine in the Garden for yesterday. Booked our table for 8 over the phone and was told in case of rain we would be “eating up in the restaurant”. They called to confirm our booking two days before our lunch and I was once again told that in the event of rain we would be “eating up in the restaurant” (as rain was predicted).
On arrival, it was raining, we were directed to sit at one of approx. 4 fold out picnic tables in an outside marquee while the large restaurant was empty. When I went back to speak to a staff member as to why we were not “ eating up in restaurant “ as I was advised TWICE in the last few days, I was given all sorts of pathetic excuses - we were a large group ( at which point I looked straight into the restaurant and could see they could most definitely accommodate tables of 8). When I pointed that out and questioned why we had to eat in an area resembling someone’s garage - while “the restaurant upstairs” remained empty I was told it was because we were an early booking and the later bookings would be seated in the restaurant. Both your staff members who spoke to me on the phone in previous days knew full well what time our booking was and still advised we would be “seated upstairs in restaurant” if it rained!!
Needless to say after driving 45 minutes to get there we got up and left.
Extremely poor operation - don’t tell customers one thing over the phone and then fail to deliver.
Won’t be back and won’t be recommending.

Family gathered for wedding January 2022.

My room was rustic, the bedside tables weren’t level, so items slowly slid off, even a glass of water teetered dangerously.

The cleaners clearly had difficulty raising their arms to clean the window sill in bathroom, as dead insects and bugs had been there for some time.

The air conditioning wasn’t functioning in my son’s room. He wasn’t able to open the windows as they had been nailed shut. The first night of his stay, woke in a lather of perspiration in the early hours in a stuffy hot room.

The room next door to my son’s contained an impressive water feature. The unit’s air conditioning leaked just inside the door, so as you walked in, water dripped on you. Clearly this had been an issue for some time as the room smelled of mould and the carpet was sodden. This room had not been cleaned for some time, as the sheets had black hairs all over them. Both live and dead bugs found throughout the bathroom.

As there were no additional rooms, my son stayed in the spare bed in the room next to his, he slept next to the water feature, which brought on asthma he hadn’t suffered since childhood.

Elderly relatives found a blue tongue lizard hiding behind the toilet in their bathroom. Luckily plenty of family around to assist, but if they had been on there own, it was difficult to find accommodation staff to help.

By all means have a wedding at Coolangatta Estate where the food was lovely and staff attentive. However, the accommodation suffers from numerous major defects requiring immediate attention to bring the accommodation to an acceptable standard.

If zero was an option I would tick that. For $224 a night for a couple you do expect some basic level of comfort. This was in no way forthcoming at Coolangatta Estate. As we checked in another couple were complaining about their accommodation and subsequently left. We should have turned around then and asked for a refund. We were in the Plumber’s cottage. A musty smell greeted us when opening the door. The room lights didn’t work. The bed was uncomfortable. The bathroom and kitchen needed an update. There was a lot of traffic noise from the nearby road. We had prepaid online. Over dinner at a nice restaurant I tried to convince myself I could stay the night there but when we went back to the room I reaslised I couldn’t. We ended up leaving and finding a room at Quest in Nowra which was clean and quiet with a comfortable bed and had a good night’s sleep which I wouldn’t have had at Coolangatta Estate! The Estate didn’t even call to see what the problem was as we obviously didn’t stay the night. I assume it is a frequent occurrence.

We had a basic Cottage room which I think they called the old workshops. The estate itself is very nice and you will still have a nice time there. Just don't expect a luxury stay as the price would reflect what you will be getting.
