Parking limited. Cost $430 3 courses for two. Food beautiful. Pretentious. Service poor. Staff friendly. Waited far too long between courses. After prompting, sides for the mains arrived more than half way through our main course. Wine ok. Paid too much for no more than two glasses in total. No refill of glasses . Dress code not enforced. Guy next...

This hotel is amazing and an unexpected pleasure reached from a narrow road but overlooking the spectacular Whale Beach. Our family group arrived 15 minutes early for lunch on a busy Sunday but our table was ready as were the army of service staff. The cuisine is French and judging by the accents of the staff, they were all recruited...

We have just spent a night at Jonah's to celebrate our 30th Wedding anniversary. From the moment we arrived to our departure the next day the staff proved to be welcoming, friendly and professional. The rooms are well appointed and private yet still providing endless views over Whale Beach. The food and wine were first class and the wait staff...

I couldn't fault the service, food and overall experience of this place. We booked the dinner, bed and breakfast package which i would highly recommend. The view from the room was amazing. Food was excellent, staff was a level above any other hotel I've experienced. We will definitely be back!

We arrived from Sydney airport early in the morning. We were told that check in wasn't until 14:00 (which is normal), the lady on reception was kind enough to give us a beach bag with towels & directions to a number of really nice beaches within a 3-5 minute drive from the hotel. We stayed in room 651, which is...

We've been wanting to return to Jonah's for about 15 years and finally made it over the weekend. Staff are friendly, professional and never too busy to have a chat (thanks Bridie!) We had the dinner bed and breakfast package and we can't complain about the portion sizes, in fact, it was probably a bit too much! Not sure if...

I just spent 3 nights at Jonah's and found it to be a jewel in Palm Beach. It is a small intimate hotel with wonderful personal touches. The sunrises are magical - makes waking early a treat! The only had the breakfast service, which I chose to have on my balcony with the birds chirping above. The food was beautifully...

We were lucky to be given a gift voucher for a night at Jonah's. We had been once before for a birthday lunch, so were thrilled to be able to stay there. The staff were really friendly, welcoming, and helpful - including being really lovely about a problem we had with other guests. The ocean view from our room was...

My wife and have been blessed to stay for the past 9 days with family in palm beach. Tonight we visited Jonah's. Just 100 feet down the road. I guess my expectations were somewhat less than the experience. This is truly a beautifully located boutique hotel. The views of Whale Beach are spectacular. We checked out the menu although we're...

Travelled from Dublin, Ireland to visit family in Sydney. For years my family have been going to Jonah's and have celebrated everything from weddings, engagements, birthdays and special occasions here. It took us about an hour to drive from french's forest to Whale beach. The drive up to Jonahs is so beautiful. The staff were super friendly, we were sat...
