So much has already been written about this place so I'll keep this brief - just GO! Seriously you will not be disappointed. If you're in Sydney then drive the extra couple of hours, it really is worth it and beats the hunter or blue mountains hands down. If your in the industry then definitely go, you'll learn lots from...

Although the Bower is a gorgeous location for couples, I found it a perfect location to stay whilst I was working for a couple of days in the area. It is extremely quiet, self-contained and has plenty of space to get some work done. The bed was also extremely comfortable. I also got to time to fit in an early...

The Bower at Broulee exceeded our expectations. We arrived there very late at night and the owners had put up signs to direct us to our Bowers. I thought that was extremely cute and sweet of them. When we arrived, I was surprised to see how spacious, clean and modern their bowers were. As we were here for Easter, they...

We have stayed at the Bower before and loved their Bowers. This time we stayed in their new Airstream "Bambino". It was a wonderful glamping experience set in a picturesque rainforest adjoining a pond. I have always loved the look of Airstream trailers and staying in this one was very luxurious. It has an expression machine, including shower and toilet,...

We've just had a lovely 3 day trip to the beautiful south coast and enjoyed a wonderful experience at The Bower. The accommodation was faultless and perfectly described on their website. Lots of nice little trimmings in a perfect bush setting in Broulee. The Bower was very well equipped and the spa was clearly a highlight, looking out to the...

They are also equipped with everything you could possibly need and more! This incldues oven, stovetop, microwave, fridge, TV, aircon/heating, basic food supplies such as olive oil, salt and pepper, and heated floors in the...

Hi Eva, Thanks for your review. It's great to hear that you found your getaway to be private and relaxing. That's exactly what we aim to enable. The 3 re-furbished satin spa bowers have enabled us to tweak our offering to include the under-floor heating and now all of the bowers have air conditioning and a separate show recess, in...

When you read reviews of The Bower I'm sure you'll be thinking "can it really be so good?" - I knew after booking our two nights that the premium price had set an expectation and when we arrived any worry of staying in a humpy in the scrub was blown away. The Bower (we stayed in the Red Bower) was...
