We took our management team and partners for the night as a thank you, we hired the barn restaurant area for our predinner drinks and a seated dinner. What a night !!! The staff everywhere where awesome from the initial booking, ongoing communication, front desk check in, afternoon drinks by the pool, evening dinner and breakfast, they couldn't have done enough for us. Thanks team we had an amazing time (late night drinks by the fire pit was definitely a highlight!) and the rooms were very comfortable and well maintained.

Dear GENERAL_MANAGER_DB,

Thank you so much for your wonderful review!

The team will be absolutely delighted to hear your management event was such a success. The campfire with a few drinks in hand is definitely a great way to top off a fun evening in the Barn, and it's great to hear the Hidden Vale team took such good care of you all.

We look forward to welcoming you again for another awesome experience.

Warm regards,

Claire

.We spent 3 nights here.
Food was excellent including the beef (rump and the Wagyu) which was as tender as can be!!
Service was fantastic. A lovely new team who were already hitting their straps. Professional but also warm / friendly.
We had a room with a lovely view but it was tiny........not even space to hang our cloths. Quite a bit of plumbing sounds and bumps from neighbouring rooms.
It is a beautiful peaceful location.

Dear 514grahamb,

Thank you for you review!

How wonderful that you were able to spend three nights with us at Hidden Vale. It's great to hear you were well looked after and had an excellent dining experience at Homage.

We're so glad you enjoyed the peace and serenity of the 12,000 acres we are situated on. We do also have a number of different room types including larger, standalone rooms that take in the wider views of the beautiful Australian bush.

We look forward to welcoming you again in the future.

Warm regards,

Claire

We stayed in a deluxe cabin which had an amazing open fireplace where we spent a lot of time relaxing looking out at the countryside. The food was incredible and the staff were so friendly. I'll be back again as it was one of the most restful and quiet places I've ever stayed at.

Amazing place! Spent a couple of days at a workshop here and loved it. The captive breeding centre is state of the art, the accommodation is brilliant - individual rooms in a larger cottage with old fashioned decor. The food was amazing - tenderest steak I’ve ever eaten. Not sure how much it cost, but I’d like to take the family one day.

We definitely recommend this property as a private peaceful getaway with all the comforts of a weekend of luxury. Hidden away, as the name suggests, is a private resort retreat for those who enjoy sensational food, sensational views and sensational service. From the moment of arrival to the sad farewell, we were greeted by staff who were attentive and friendly. The accomodation was comfortable with that 5 star appeal, the fireplace being an added bonus to warm up the cottage. Very roomy 3 room cottage with a front and back porch to relax outside. The grounds were immaculate and the whole environment was relaxing. Dinner was on another level! Each course was presented well and oh so flavoursome - have to say it was the best courses we have had EVER! The chefs need to be congratulated for sending our tastebuds on a culinary journey. We wish we could have stayed another night as our stay was too short - will aim for a luncheon on the terrace overlooking the valley below as our next venture to Hidden Vale. Thank you for everything.
