My husband and 2 children aged 6 and 3 had a wonderful stay at Quingilly Ravensbourne Escape. The accomodation was comfortable and generous and the facilities including gas fire place and reverse cycle air conditioning ensured we were comfortable through the cool nights. Booking was easy, professional and friendly. Access after hours was simple with a key code at the...

We visited Tuskanas for Lunch. Our Meals were Perfect and the service was very friendly. We had Garlic Bread and two mains, steak and veg, and a Chicken Ceaser Salad. The view and gardens here are magnificent, a very peaceful feel. Definitely will be back.

The accommodation is stunning and the outdoor spa was perfect. The restaurant's meals were great value for money and you cannot fault the service. Even though we ran out of hot water on the last day, we are definitely going back.

We stayed at Forest Chalets, a few kms from Tuskanas restaurant, and came here for dinner. What a brilliant surprise! The service here is personal, professional and very special.

We were lucky enough to have a staff Christmas party at the Ravensbourne Escape. The staff were so accommodating and worked hard to fit us in on a busy day, finding room for us in a lovely private setting.

Cedar Lodge Chalet was superb. Well equipped, warm and comfortable. Everything you could possibly need is provided. The view of the valley by day is truly peaceful and the stars at night are aplenty. We thoroughly enjoyed our week by the fire and exploring the nearby national parks. The kids' favourite - the swings!

Stayed at Kintail at Ravensbourne Mountain Resort and couldn't have been happier with our experience. The staff from Ravensbourne Escape were friendly and helpful and went out of their way to ensure that our stay was comfortable, well organised and we didn't want for anything. The views from Kintail's main living room, deck and spa in the main bedroom, were...

We had the pleasure of getting away last weekend to what a friend described as "Toowoomba's best kept secret" I stayed at Tree Tops chalet at Ravensbourne Escape Mountain Resort for Friday and Saturday night.

We've stayed in over 40 cottages/cabins and were starting to think that they are all getting over-priced for what you get compared to other accommodation styles. We are also sick of flash websites and a lower reality, but this time we were not disappointed. Kookaburra Kottage was great value. The spa was large and worked, the fire stove was romantic...
