There are 9 or so cottages set in the wilderness. It is a lovely spot and the Platypus/wildlife tour at night is a highlight. We saw 2 Platypus in the river with the aid of the guide. The indoor pool is heated and was a nice wake-up in the morning.

The accommodation appears to have been built some 30 or 40 years ago. It is acceptable but a bit lean on the creature comforts typically offered on newer built accommodation. The bathroom has been refurbished (well) but a lack of shower shelf (or shower 'buddy' basket) for soap etc., made the task frustrating. The bed was comfortable. The wood fire...

whilst appreciating the great views of Mt Rowland, Silver Ridge has seen better days and needs upgrading. The outdoor rustic tables and benches were not safe to sit on. The actual cabin provided all required but certainly not luxurious.

Loud colours not condusive to calm atmosphere. Beds in spare room not comfortable. Bathroom clean. Kitchen well set out. Lounge and dining area spacious enough.No sign of...

The cottage was not clean. Cobwebs on the bathroom light/heater, in the living area and in the rooms. Looks like the cobwebs have been around for a long time. Very dated furniture and dated decor in the cottage. We found broken kitchen supplies. You would think that they would check for damaged items in between guests. We got no toiletries,...

From the moment we checked in John made us feel at home. The little cottage given to us was nestled underneath a fantastic view of Mt Roland. The cottage itself had everything you could ask for. A tour or the property at night and an introduction to all the night animals was also included for free! Well worth the stay...

Great place to stay, family owned and managed. The cabin was very well appointed and presented as spotless and the family were very friendly and welcoming. There was ease of access with a car park right at the back door of the cabin so the bags were straight from the car into the cabin. The views of Mt Roland and...

On arrival I was a little taken aback at the state of the room considering the advertised price. The carpet was badly stained and the room was in dire need of renovation. However we made the best of things and found it to be rather comfortable. The bed was new and very comfortable. The rest of the furniture needs replacing....

Self contained cottage about 11kms from Sheffield at the base of Mt Roland. Greeted by a Pademelon when we arrived, so set the scene for plenty of wildlife. Lots of bird life. Cottage was well stocked, although a little dated.
