We stayed for a fun weekend in the school holidays. We were a party of 4 kids & 6 adults, and all fitted in comfortably! The spa was definitely a hit for all, as was the gorgeous open log fire! The house is set in beautiful bush with birds visiting our balcony often! The house is perfectly located in Olinda... More

After staying at other retreats/ b&b's in the area and receiving much better service at nearby competitors, I was quite disappointed with our stay at Lochiels. The room/ cottage my partner and I stayed in was nice but it looked different from the online photos and it felt cramped. The scenery from the back windows was lovely but I felt... More

However we provided you with a 50% discounted voucher for local cafe, Ranges at Olinda. Fortunately our many guests before and after that have stayed with us have thoroughly enjoyed their... More

We felt right at home from the moment we stepped into the 3 level cottage. The heater was turned on for us, the fireplace was set up and ready to be lit and the owner, Alan, was friendly and accommodating, ensuring we had everything we needed and asked us to call him if we had any issues. Every window had... More

We stayed mid week at these luxury 3 story deluxe appartments. Our service was exceptional in everyway. We could not fault it in anyway. Very clean, and a warm on arrival in apartment, as it was super cold outside. Alan is such a gentleman and Brad looked after us for our sensational breakfast/brunch.

We have just returned from a wonderful weekend at Lochiel Cottages. Our tri-level cottage set amongst the trees was luxurious, clean, warm and cosy. We enjoyed a delicious lunch and breakfast at Ranges Cafe/Restaurant (vouchers were provided), it was just across the road from our cottage and had a great menu selection.

A beautiful two nights away in at Lochiel Cottage was amazing. The Original Cottage was well appointed, spacious, very clean and very relaxing. Alan was friendly and very accommodating. We enjoyed this trip with our primary school boys. I would highly recommend a stay here and we are looking forward to returning!

We stayed at Lochiel in March and realised that we forgot to leave a review. We loved every minute here and would not hesitate to stay again. Loved the fire place and looking out the windows to the surrounding rainforest. Everything was spotless and modern. A great relaxing weekend away.
