We enjoyed our private room with fire place and spa and views over the valley. We could see the birds on our balcony and the wallabies from the balcony. We enjoyed the Segway safari and tree top walk as well as other bush walks around. And special thanks to Mick O'Reilly.

Thank you for your feedback John & Katherine.
We agree, the valley views and relaxing by a fire is the perfect way to relax while on the mountain.
We will pass on your thanks to Big Mick, he is certainly quite the storyteller and the gentleman of the mountain.

Recently visited as part of a deal for 3 nights. We had a great time. Lots of bush walks. Wonderful bird talks and flora and fauna to see.
Breakfast was included and it was fantastic. Get there early or it could be a little cool. Lots to select from and even to order eggs and omelette.
The place to unwind and relax as there is no tv. But that's what we wanted. Free wifi. Pool, spa and sauna. Room was older but all we needed.
Very friendly and helpful staff.

Thank you for your feedback marki59.
Sounds like you let the mountain environment relax and unwind you during your stay.
We are currently in the process of refurbishing our rooms, and already have some rooms completed.
We look forward to seeing you again soon.

I don't even know where to begin. My partner and I arrived for a weekend for our anniversary. From the minute we arrived to check in the staff were unwelcoming, rude and made me instantly feel uncomfortable. The group next to us got all this information about what to do, where to go the hikes and we got "here's the wifi password. It doesn't work sometimes but we can't change that"

The room was old and run down. There was no tv in a room we paid almost $200 a night for and considering there isn't a lot to do at night around the "resort" you would imagine you cause hire a DVD at least.

Again the staff were rude when we went to the bar for a drink and a light dinner. Considering you have no other choice but eating at the restaurant and bar you would think you would want to make it a good experience. Especially when the accommodation and travel is not cheap!

The food for breakfast was cold and tough. The best part about the whole weekend was the lovely toast man. THE TOAST MAN.

Not recommend and won't ever return!

Good afternoon Shayla,
I can only apologise for the experience that you had on your recent visit.
This feedback is not of the standards that we pride ourselves on. As can be seen from other comments, we are usually praised very highly for our level of customer service. It would seem your experience was very contrary to this.
Once again, my apologies.

The villas are luxe. It's a bush walkers and bird lovers paradise. The spa is amazing. O'Reilly's has lots of great activities that would suit couples, families and team building groups. The surroundings are just beautiful.

Holidaying in the area and did a day trip to Canungra and O'Reilly's. Canungra Tourist Information Office gave no information about the dreadful road conditions to O'Reilly's and when we got there the Cafe had closed at 2.30pm (no mention of this on the website) and the bar didn't open until 4.30pm. This information was dragged from a very unhelpful man on the reception desk who clearly felt it was beneath him to interact with potential guests in any way, shape or form. There are better places in the Scenic Rim to take in the views etc.

Good morning,
My apologies that your experience was not as you, nor we, would have hoped.
The road up the Mountain received some damage from Cyclone Debbie but is rapidly being repaired by the Department of Transport and Main Roads.
I just needed to clarify a couple of things. Our Café is described in detail on our website under "Dining" as follows: 'Full a la carte is available 11am - 2.30pm with light options from 9am - 4pm.' The Bar opens every day from 4pm. Happy hour/s 4-6pm.
I am sorry you did not discover this information but trust it may be valuable to others in the future.
Regards,

Brendan Long
Retreat Manager
