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.

The area is stunning! Views amazing and serenity beautiful! Our room was small but that was ok. Problems would have been fixable! Shower cubicle was very dirty and mouldy - lack of cleaning. There was nowhere to place shampoo etc but on the floor of the shower - no thought. There was no toilet brush available - rooms were not serviced at all - even to emptying bins or changing cups and glasses. Loose mats were just a trip hazard. Bed was very comfortable and it was just disappointing that with a bit of thought and effort the place could have been so much more comfortable and clean! PS better lighting from the car park needed.

First impressions are great, the gardens and buildings look beautiful. The roses were out and created a fabulous display. Unfortunately thats where it ended. The room was less than impressive not at all like the website. The bathroom needed a good hard scrub to remove mould from the tiles, it was also in need of some serious repairs, broken tiles etc. The tea and coffee making facilities were in a common area, all well and good for through the day, however I dont want to get dressed first thing in the morning and traipse to a public area to make a cup of tea. No TV in the rooms either only 1 in the common room. For $220 per night I expect quite a bit more. We wont be returning.

From the moment we turned off the Hume Highway into the driveway of Eling Forest Winery, we were taken away by the lush gardens and charm of the estate. Carol greeted us and took us to our room, the Bridal Suite, which we had for the weekend. The room was spacious and intimate, with a picturesque view across to the lake. We then strolled down to the Cellar Door for a wine tasting with Michelle, who was full of knowledge and excitement. Their wines were delicious and it was lovely to learn the history of the estate. We booked the spa which was located just behind our room, under a gorgeous oak tree completely immersed into the garden - a must do!! All rooms on the grounds were booked for the night yet we hardly saw anyone, it felt as if we had the whole place to ourselves. There were plenty of secluded areas you could relax and picnic, or read, away from crowds and noisy groups you may find at other bed and breakfasts. We had requested dinner at the estate to avoid having to drive anywhere and we were so glad we did!! We had authentic Udon chicken noodles - a perfect portion and a complimentary cheese platter. The coffee at the cafe was delicious and the ladies who worked there were so smiley and friendly. Definitely don’t leave without having a coffee! It was a beautiful and relaxing weekend and I highly recommend to stay - the photos on their website don’t do it justice. Michelle was so accommodating, friendly and her hospitality was delightful.

I’m in Canberra and my 2 besties are in Sydney. Years ago, we decided to schedule 6mthly catch ups rather than just getting together whenever an ‘occasion’ arose! We initially started nominating somewhere new each time. Was told about Eling Forest so decided to try it. It is fabulous!!! We have now decided to just make this ‘our place’. Can’t fault it, food is awesome, lots of variety from a toasted sandwich to roasts, risottos, pasta....amazing sweet options too. Lovely veranda with umbrellas outside, fireplace inside. Obviously a winery, so can include that too if you like. Don’t miss this place, half way Canberra/Sydney, whether you want lunch or just a cuppa.

Great half way stop from Sydney to Canberra. We’ve been been here several times and always found the food and service good. The bacon and eggs and sourdough are delicious and the tomato full of flavour. The fruit tart is full of flavour. The fire was on when they opened and was very welcoming. They also have toilets....good to know when breaking up a trip

Ahhhh Second time I’ve stopped here for coffee, when I’ve checked your website to see if your open and you’re not!! I’m sure the 4 cars driving in behind us would have also been annoyed. Best call ahead if you’re planning to stop here.

Made a random stop for a 5 min break which ended being almost an hour. We enjoyed the grounds and the atmosphere. Service is good, but food could do much better for the price. Overall great place to stop when on a long drive

I have never had to write a poor review - however I have never had such poor service in all my trips around the state for horse competitions. Booked 2 rooms at Eling Forest Winery within 2 weeks of arriving. At the beginning of the week leading up to our stay we were experiencing severe weather patterns and was concerned event would be cancelled. Rang and had to leave message to call me back. 3 days later rang again, no answer, left a message. Also sent email, as the event had been cancelled due to safety concerns. FInally on the afternoon of our arrival I receive a call wondering when I was turning up - really - you don't check your messages and you are in the hospitality/tourism/functions business. All I have been offered is that when I book again, which would then total just under $1300 I can have a discount of $180. Maybe you should improve your customer service side of the business before it's too late. Keep my full payment, you may need it.

We were made very welcome. Steve was very knowledgeable about the wines and their history. A beautiful relaxing place to visit. Highly recommend. The olives and beer pickles are also worth the visit . The grounds are very picturesque and the history of the buildings is also very interesting.

This establishment is on the Hume Highway just before the Illawarra Highway heading South andJust after heading North. It is a great stop off point from the Highway and is halfway between Sydney and Canberra. Excellent coffee and meals with the opportunity to indulge in the winery at the same time. A much better food alternative to the big yellow arches just down the road and a great outdoor area for the children to have a break from the car. Nice people and great service and would recommend to any traveller looking for a stop 2hrs South of Sydney.
