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. Mentioning it was our Christmas party at the time of the booking, our table was decorated beautifully and included the all...

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. The location and accommodation was superb with beautiful vista views of the forest and far distance from the restaurant and secluded immersion of the surrounding...

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...
