We had a booking over Christmas that needed to be delayed....once again because of COVID-19! Damien could not have been more helpful, not more pleasant and understanding to work with. We now have new dates and can't wait to finally visit this beautiful location!
Some of the nicest views I have seen at any accommodation in Australia. The property in on a hill with insanely beautiful views of the bucolic countryside below. It was once used by the governors of NSW as a summer residence. We were in cottage 7 which had the amazing views just in front. Cottages 8 and Cottage 1 also face the best vantage but I think Cottage 7 was the nicest overall. The cottages are rather rustic as you might expect. Our room was a bit like walking into a period movie set but with modern amenities. The sculpture park around the grounds is really lovely and takes at least an hour to explore on foot. The location near Moss Vale was great and you can explore most of the Southern Highlands towns within 20 minutes by car. The included breakfast is supplied in the room and is not delivered. The English muffins with fresh butter and jam, muesli with plunger coffee, tea and OJ were more than adequate. Be sure to ask Damien for a tour of the premises. The billiards room is like taking a step back in time.…
We had the best time at Hillview, and cannot recommend it enough to everyone we know. Its a beautiful place to stay and a great location - convenient and close to all the major sights and towns. All of the photos we took of our cottage look like we stayed at a luxurious Downton Abbey - we just loved it. Plus super quiet and relaxing for those looking to wind down. Damien also gave us loads of history about the place and tips for local food and sights. You must get here!!!
We loved our short stay at Hillview in one of the lovely cottages, this property is stunning with beautiful grounds to enjoy the views, the wildlife and the area. The heating in the cottage was excellent for the winter season with electric blankets to snuggle up to in the evening, close to Moss Vale for dining and great to explore Sutton Forest and surrounding areas. Our kids (5 and 2) enjoyed running through all the leaves and seeing the resident kangaroos. We highly recommend and will be coming back in the near future.
Fantastic location. Lovely property with eclectic outdoor sculptures. Great period buildings. Huge suites in cottages with internal lining boards and original floor boards. Generous breakfast provisions. Comfortable bed. Good value. Efficient gas heater. We however were not put in the suite we had selected online that had a walk in shower. Our suite only had a shower over the bath and was obviously not as pictured on booking website. There was no sink or tub to wash dishes in and no tea towel. The centre light in the large living area was so dull that I was unable to read in the living area at night. We had limited contact with host.
