The retreat building itself looks lovely, it has a wonderful country feel to it, and the view from the rooms (I believe all the rooms overlook the backdrop) is beautiful. It is extremely peaceful overlooking the Blue Mountains and listening to the birds echo through the trees.
The main areas of the accommodation are well presented, and the fireplace with the surrounding couches is lovely.
The walls in the hallways are lined with books and decorative pieces, mostly musically influenced.
The rooms are OK, but nothing spectacular. The beds are double beds, so my Husband and I found it very cosy. The door handle to our bathroom was broken and the toilet roll holder was loose. The fridge was not plugged in and as very hard to reach the plug with the TV stand the was it was just under the power point. Linen, including Towels, were provided. The toilet paper we were provided was half empty (which was fine, it was on the holder, we understand that) but the 2nd roll was not wrapped which led us to believe it was a used one as well. We also found a note under the table in the room which was for guests that had previously stayed for a different wedding.
I was impressed with the supplied shampoo, body wash, massage oil, razor kit, comb, shower cap etc - most places do not provide all of those things and the product itself was lovely.
The staff were chatty and friendly and helpful. They were happy to help out in any way possible.
The swimming pool is well maintained and has chairs to lounge on around it on those warmer days. We were there for an evening event, so we did not try out the pool!.
As we were there for a wedding there was a mix up with the breakfast and we needed to provide the ingredients for breakfast and the venue provided the facilities such as a BBQ, commercial Toaster etc. I am not sure if this is also the case with normal stays. They did provide Tea and Coffee at all times.
The Hideaway Retreat has a lovely view and excluding the smaller imperfections, would be a nice place to spend a weekend away enjoying the peaceful Mountains.
