From the moment we booked our weekend away we knew it was going to be a great one. The excellent customer service throughout the booking process was second to none. We arrived on Friday and stayed in a suite with the most amazing outdoor bathtub....We opened the door to beautiful relaxing music and the scent of eucalyptus around the room. The evening platter and selection of drinks was fantastic. Breakfast and dinner the next day were amazing. Overall I cannot fault anything about Tumbling Waters. We will definitely be back, Thank you for one of the best weekend getaways in NSW.More

This place is simply amazing! Starting by the wonderful location with breathtaking views, we stayed at the Luxury ocean penthouse suite and it was beautiful! The room was top notch, beautiful decoration, very clean, with an amazing marble bath with the best view. Dinning on...the edge is a must experience, the dinner was great, we felt very comfortable as the service is not rushed, and we really have time to contemplate the view, the drinks and the amazing menu. Staff was very friendly and kind. Definitely recommend staying here as we are already looking forward to come back!More

First night out for months and definitely the place to start. Lovely 2 ladies serving us outshone only by the food. 100% recommend. We came for dinner but will return for a weekend. First class, thanks very much Karen and Jo.

My fiance and I stayed here for 1 night for our 5 year anniversary. We stayed in the Luxury ocean suite which has spectacular views of the ocean through a frame of dense Forrest. There is a carved rock bath on the verandah which absolutely...must be used, sitting in the bath listening to the birds and looking out at the ocean you wonder how this place can be only an hour from Sydney. It's like another world. I cant recommend this place highly enough.More

Great place to go if you want to pamper yourself, treat the other half or just have a break from the hustle and bustle of the city. The views were fantastic, we stayed in the bath house which had its own steam room and jacuzzi......Sooo good. Came away feeling so relaxed from this great night away. Breakfast was also great and the location is phenomenal next to a number of Bush walks, great beaches and a great ocean drive. Would definitely go back.More

Stunning doesn't cover the view from the restaurant.. simply breathtaking. Dinner started with an amazing share platter of prawns, salmon tartare, olives, vegetable samosas, cheese and tomatoes with bread. I would have been happy with that but then came the perfectly cooked steak with garlic...mash and zucchini followed by 4 mini desserts (chocolate tarte, steamed rhubarb, marshmallow with slices of mango and my favourite, praline ice cream). Breakfast was just as fantastic with a buffet style offering yoghurt, fruits, cereals, toast, pastries, omlette dishes and smoked salmon... just heavenly. Service was warm and friendly and both the evening chef and morning wait staff were chatty and welcoming. Definitely worth 10 out of 10More

We attended here for a friends wedding. WOW what a beautiful place, stunning views and the gardens were just lovely. The setting is superb. The meal was beautiful but I must add that the wait staff were the best I have EVER come across. I...noticed a couple of times that if they saw that someone didn't have a glass in their hand they offered to go and get them a drink. The staff were very attentive and whilst i was pushing a pram around trying to get a baby to sleep one even offered to go and get me a drink and bring it up to me!More

Great dinner. Lovely three course meal, really special. Wines were well matched. There is a selection of bubbles, white and red - but all were really good.

Amazing 3 course dinner. Could not fault the food. Just wish it was the food came out a little quicker as we were extremely tired for a big day exploring the area
