Such a unique stay and incredibley romantic!! Owner was very welcoming, but then left us to explore the property! Bungalows have been positioned so well, feels like you are the only people in the world! It was lovely to share a spa, over looking the mountains. The view was spectacular, from Mt warning to coolangatta up to surfers paradise. My... More

The view from the cute, clean cabin was outstanding. You can see Mt Warning and the Gold Coast and the sunset was amazing. The cabin was functional and clean with a fire place and comfy bed. We were however a bit disappointed with the 'five star' touches, or lack thereof. Definition of five star is "Outstanding establishments characterised by luxury... More

This place is absolutely magnificent. Although a small venue with only 6 bungalows, the respect of our privacy was greatly appreciated. The panoramic views and special feeling you have of being on top of the world made our stay extremely memorable. We booked for 2 nights, but ended up staying for 3 because we loved it so much. The owner... More

My husband and I jut spent a Saturday night at penny ridge retreat and overall was very disappointed. Although the luxury bungalow was gorgeous, clean and well appointed (despite no telephone, re used bath products, rusty outdoor setting), the retreat offered NO five star service what so ever! We felt like we were spending the night in a ghost town!... More

Penny Ridge is an amazing location, and one of our favourite places to visit on the Tweed Coast. The rooms are modern, attractive and very appealing. The beds are comfy and the bathrooms are perfectly designed, allowing you to lay back in the 2 person spa while enjoying the views of the Tweed Valley and coastline. We love staying here,... More

A group of friends decided to have a well over due catch up and we decided to have a weekend retreat with a range of activities. Penny Ridge was a great choice as we could have a day on the golf course, a day by the pool / tennis courts and fantastic dinner and lunch over looking one of the... More

I was thinking not to write a review because I don't want other people discovering this hidden gem!! But in any case, we love this region of NSW and at Penny Ridge we really got to experience the beauty of it. The views were amazing and we were nestled in our cabin in the middle of a plantation of citrus... More

This place is amazing! From the moment we arrived to checking out, we were impressed with Penny Ridge. The service was first class and the room was private, lush and a big winner with my lady. We felt like we were a million miles away in our own piece of paradise on top of the world. But when we did... More
