Hillview is an outstanding property, so quiet and peaceful with plenty of space to explore and take in the magnificent views. Dotted throughout the property are many fabulous contemporary sculptures. We stayed in cottage 6 which had all the charm of the 1850s with modern conveniences. The bed was very comfortable and the rooms are spacious. We look forward to returning and enjoying the hospitality again soon.

We booked into Hillview for 2 nights because we were attending a family wedding in the area and it was conveniently located.
WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT
Firstly we acknowledge that this is a very old heritage cottage BUT that cant be used as an excuse for the terrible condition that this property is in.
The cutlery was filthy dirty with dried food sticking to the knife....in fact the one and only knife that was provided ! Several plates were stained with dried food , the doona was filty , the bed hadnt been made properly , some furniture was broken and handles were missing off drawers. and the bedroom door handle was not working.
Floors were dirty , curtains hanging off the rods, there was no toilet paper in the bathroom etc etc .
I told Damian that we were very disappointed with the accommodation but he shrugged it off saying that no one else had been concerned in the past ! We spoke to a lady working there and she was most apologetic.
Under normal circumstances we would have walked away BUT we had commitments soon after arrival , and there simply wasnt enough time to book elsewhere.
This place was a dump and I will be reporting it to authorities.

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.

Room tip: Cottage 7 - Earl of Beauchamp is the best room

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!!!
