My partner and I headed up to Montville for a weekend getaway, and treated ourselves with a stay at Narrows Escape. It was really lovely - the cottage was gorgeous, the rainforest outlook was beautiful, and we had everything we could have needed. The breakfast hamper lasted both mornings, and then some - we had more food than we needed....

Even with one of the wettest few days we have had the Narrows was a wonderful place to stay! We used it as a base to enjoy all the local food and attractions, and the team in Escapes looked after us brilliantly. Well set out cabins, great facilities and the breakfast and welcome hampers were perfect. Staff are there if...

An overnight stay just isn't enough... While this was a quick getaway for just us two, after the first few hours in the cabin we knew we should have booked another night and also that we'd be back. Very private cabins, totally serene location. We love local produce and Kevin sorted it well... our hamper was devoured. Then off to...

We stayed here after our engagement and could not believe the quality of service. Loved every minute of our stay. The cabins are self contained and come with a beautiful hamper of local fresh produce. Beautiful scenery. So peaceful. Our only complaint was that we couldnt stay longer. We will be returning to Narrows Escape Rainforest Retreat.

Loved our stay and the personal card that was left for us. We enjoyed all the personal touches roses, chocolates, port and the breakfast hamper was fit for royalty. Loved relaxing in the hammock beside the stream. We dined in as the cottage was too good to leave.

Hi Leanne K, Thank you for your review. It was a pleasure to meet you both and to supply the little touches to make your stay wonderful. Relaxation is what we aim for while you sit by the creek and listen to the wonderful bird life. The sounds of silence in the rainforest is magic. Hope to see you again...
