It's a beautiful property, nestled among gorgeous gardens and native animals and just looking online photos, it does look fantastic. Until you realise, once you get there, it's right by the main road and traffic noise just overpowers the feel of tranquility, quietness and it's not secluded. We live in inner suburb of Melbourne and our street is more quiet...

Hi Ally, thank you for your feedback. What you have described with road noise is really unusual as this is not normally a problem at all and we are usually described as incredibly peaceful! We are also set down from the Tourist road in our own little hollow surrounded by luscious plants and lovely tall trees. .. We know there...

Linden Gardens is an amazing place to stay. The resort is beautiful, the staff are lovely and it has everything you could hope for. The Gallery Suite has been upgraded and is totally beautiful and comfortable. It is also accessible to anybody now as they recently refurbished the suite and made it accessible for wheelchairs. Beautiful place for a getaway...

We are truly in awe about how amazing our experience was, and highly recommend Linden Gardens Rainforest Retreat to any couple looking for a romantic night or weekend away. We arrived late after work and after reception was closed, so did the self check in which was easy to follow. When we opened the door to the Gallery Suite, we...

I have stayed here twice. You won't see anyone else at check in or throughout your stay. Each cottage is quirky and lovely to relax in the spas. The beds are huge. Nice having a coffee machine and also toaster in your room so you can toast your bread for breakfast.

As soon as you walk in you feel relaxed and at home. Fire going, beautiful lighting, music and those delicious chocolate muffins. 1 night would not be enough, definately 2 night min needed to relax. Breakfast was great. Had a wonderful time.

We had a fantastic lodge which was beautifully furnished with beautiful views. Check-in was easy, it was all set up for self service, with a magnificent cooked breakfast delivered at the time we requested. Romantic and relaxing stay, highly recommended.

My partner took me here for our anniversary in 2013 and it honestly took my breath away. Everything was perfect and the room was very cosy and romantic. We enjoyed using the spa and having in-room massages. My partner ordered the cheese platter and had arranged to have rose petals arranged on the bed and both we're done beautifully. I...

This is a must for the romantic weekend getaway. Cosy setting tucked away in the mountains surrounded by nature. Relax and unwind in the luxurious spa and feast on a mouth watering continental breakfast. A return visit a must!

My husband and I stayed at Linden Gardens in February and I must say it was perfect. We stayed in two different cottages and I could hardly find a fault in either of them. The cottages are absolutely gorgeous. The owners have done a spot on job creating a perfect romantic setting. The king size bed and linens are so...

My girlfriend booked a night in the gallery suite for my birthday and I must say the room was absolutely beautiful and very well presented for our stay.

Hi Igor, we are really pleased you found your room beautiful and enjoyed our scrumptious breakfast! Regarding the door, we are very sorry you had a problem with that, we have jumped on to that right away and had it fixed. It was unfortunately caused by a little bit of movement in the door due to expansion and contraction from...
