I stayed here with my partner for a romantic weekend away for our anniversary, The owner was wonderful, the cottage was, cosy, romantic & peaceful. We loved the open fireplace & the loft style bedroom along with the spa we enjoyed with a bottle of champagne. It was a fairy tale experience & we would most defiantly return again.

Upon arrival we were met by the most hospitable, warm and kind heart manager! Taken to our cottage, through what seemed to be as lovely as a fairy garden! And as soon as you enter the doors, you can wave bye bye to your all worries and embrace the ambience of the surroundings. We have stayed at many places but... More

We stayed in one of the cottages for some 5 weeks whilst awaiting settlement on a house we had purchased nearby. The setting reminded us of a European woodland, the cottage of a gingerbread house, spotless, cosy, warm and welcoming with gorgeous views in each direction out into the garden, even from the spa bath. Tucked in to our beautiful... More

Really nicely built cottages that are very fairy tale-ish. We had a very large fire place in our cottage that was lovely to sit by. The kitchen was self contained and there was a large spa upstairs that looked out into the gardens. Very nice for a romantic get away..

Piffle to "aussie weekender". I recently stayed at Forest Glade Olinda and it was certainly none of the things descriibed by this person. It was clean, charming, quaint, beautifully set in a gorgeous garden, and private. I have a sneaky feeling that "aussie weekender" is the sort of person who likes to complain about things so they can score a... More

What can I say? It looked lovely on the website, but not so inviting on arrival. First impressions: dank, dark, dusty and musty! After booking what we hoped would be a romantic weekend away, we arrived to discover that the place had seemingly not been stayed in for a while (it certainly smelt like that) and had not had a...

Jan R, Owner at Forest Glade Olinda, responded to this review

In response to this review listed on 16th March 2012. At Forest Glade we endeavour to offer couples a getaway that is secluded, private and cosy. When running a business there are constant variables at play, and if something is not up to standard it should be immediately brought to our attention. (If, for example, a meal is served cold...

Three double story European Style cottages, each completely private and self contained. A very welcome change, as many Bed and Breakfasts in the area seem to be Country themed. Each cottage has an open fire, central heating, air conditioning and a double spa bath. Cottages are completely hidden from view of the road and each other by lush bushland. Basic... More

“You don't need to choose a room. All the cottages are self contained. They're well spaced out from each other, so there's no problem with privacy.”
