An absolutely beautiful place to get away with your partner or for a sneaky get away by yourself. Spectacular views from a beautiful, self contained lodge - very clean. The owner was wonderful and made our stay even better. Would recommend to anyone!! Felt like a home away from home but better

Such a beautiful spot to have a honeymoon. Very clean, quiet and peaceful location. Spa was awesome and bread was delicious. Marjorie was lovely to deal with. If you want a get away this is the place to book. We will be back for our 1year anniversary.

Extremely private cabins with personal spa hot tub on a secluded verandah overlooking bushland...wood heater ( and reverse cycle air conditioning as it can get very cold). King size bed and double shower...excellently maintained and Marjorie was a joy to deal with🍷Great base at Tolga for all your Tableland adventures and would definitely recommend

Allawah Retreat was utterly wonderful. We had a secluded cabin to ourselves and it had a fireplace and a spa as well as all the usual wonderful amenities (plus a BBQ even though there was a kitchen too). The complimentary port was also delicious! It was clean and stylish and wonderful. The location was perfect - set out in the...

After a VERY busy Christmas period in our business, we spontaneously booked for 2 nights at Allawah. We knew it would be good because we know of the retreat and had already heard good reviews. We did not expect the beauty and the total relaxation to be as great as it was. It was though. We live just 10kms away,...

My partner surprised me with a weekend to Allawah Retreat for some R&R. Was great to relax in the spa on the balcony. Beautiful views! The temperature drops dramatically when the sun goes down so the wood fire in the cabin was necessary. The property has some great walking trails and is close to drive to so many other beautiful...

“Each extra dollar spent lifts you further and higher into the range, and the views just get better. But even the basic (if you could call anything there basic) retreat chalet was lovely.”
