This is a very comfortable inn on a gorgeous site, surrounded by beautiful grounds. We are taking a mandarins road trip up to Cairns, and rather than stay in a typical Gold Coast 4-5 star beach hotel, we tried this inn. It was a great decision. This is indeed more of a B&B than a 5 star hotel (think Ten...

Thank you for deciding to take a detoir/detour. We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and your visit to our beautiful mountain. All roads may lead to Rome as they say but some are far more enjoyable than others. We were very happy to be part of your journey. Your enjoyment is our reward.

We had a wonderful stay at the Escarpment Retreat. The suite was very spacious, and we really enjoyed the sitting area, the massive bathroom with the great view from the bath tub. We truly felt as if we were in the middle of the woods and miles away from any town. Listening to the birds singing in the morning was...

Absolutely loved the escarpement retreat, our accomadation was nestled next to a water pond and stream which made for a very relaxing enviroment listening to the water run over the rocks and the crackle from the real fire place. My partner had one of the best massages they have ever had and the included breakfast was yummy and filling. There...

I have read the majority of the reviews and my view differs slightly. But only slightly. The room we had was lovely, old style furniture so quite dark but a romantic four poster bed, comfy sofa, little kitchen and a beautiful big bathtub for two! There was a balcony with table and chair. The balcony in room 2 wasn't private...

We stayed here for two nights to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Rooms were spacious, it was great to have a fire place in the room, breakfast was lovely and Carolynne was a great host. We also enjoyed the massages in the day spa. It is located almost next door to St Berards hotel which is handy but is about 15...

My sister and I drove out to Escarpment to each have a 1hr Body Bliss Massage. When booking our massage, the lady on the phone to start with was not particularly pleasant. All she took was my name and my credit card details for the booking. There was no confirmation email, text or phone call. The retreat itself looked really...

High ceilings, comfy bed, comfy sofa. We stayed in Villa 4 right at the end. Place was quiet and peaceful - perfect for a getaway from the bustling city. It has a natural fireplace, something I do not get to 'play' with normally. Breakfast was awesome.

It was the second time my boyfriend and I visited this retreat and it was clear why we chose to come back again! The villas are just beautiful, they are cleaned daily while you are out and they are just the right size.
