The Hideaway Retreat
Reviewed 20 March 2015

At first my wife had reservations of staying here as the reception and building looked bit older and as others have noted quirky or as having old school charm, but after we switched from upstairs to downstairs room and enjoyed our first 2 nights as we originally booked we added an extra night as we relaxed and appreciated the hotel for what it is. A place to wind back and relax, and even though free wi-fi is available and with quality beds in each room (perfect height to give partner massage with free massage oil and hand crafted soaps provided) the older touches of the hotel and theming of einstein or mozart throughout are the feauture that stands out and gives the hideaway its charm and character. The hidden room behind the bookcase was a suprise we only discovered on last day which left me wondering what else I may have missed. The breakfast was simple but satisfying and the games room was a nice place to relax at the end of the day with free pool table, board games and xbox. As it is downstairs out of way we didnt have to worry about it closing a 9pm like a lot of games rooms and as blue mountains isnt exactly a night hotspot it was where we relaxed each night after dinner. But there was also fire place to relax if games arent your thing in reception area. The hosts were very friendly I highly recommend staying here as a nice retreat for couple looking to get away and rewind.

Room Tip: downstairs if smoke as door opens to garden but view is better from upstairs

Warm, friendly and comfortable place to stay. Has a nice feeling of relaxation, great views of the valley. Great hideaway, but close enough to shops. Rooms are very spacious and comfortable with modern amenities such as iPad, large flat screen TV and updated furnishings. Charming entrance with fireplace and bookcase gives it a homely feel. Staff are very warm and accommodating. Great value for money. Loved our stay.

Perfect for a weekend away from the rat race. So much silence apart from the birds. Rooms are very comfortable with interesting decor. Continental Breakfast was quite filling, additional hot breakfast has large variety. Staff were like friends, nothing was a bother to them.

We visited the Hideaway Retreat for a wedding recently and we were pleasantly surprised by this quirky little place. Situated on the southern side of the railway and well away from the town centre, it certainly lives up to "retreat", and if famous quotations worked into walls, floors and balustrades sound interesting then this is the place for you. There's also a hidden door...on the plus side, rooms are spacious and nicely furnished. The breakfast was excellent with cereals, fruits and house-made sourdough bread. The management were flexible and obliging. The biggest downside was the complete lack of sound insulation between the floors, and in our ground floor room heard every footstep and door opening from the floor above. My advice if you book in here, ask for a first floor room.

"Quirky" is a good description.

It also provides an adequate accommodation base, but is in a relatively remote position, and is showing its age in many areas.

It's a bushland location, but you can still hear both the highway and the railway that pass behind the building. It's nothing too loud, but quite audible on a still night.

The room we had was clean and basic; it may be a tad warm in mid-Summer. It was great to be able to have the fresh mountain air through the wide open window, but there wasn't a screen on ours, so we were visited by a few mosquitos.

Our "mystery hotel" deal included continental breakfast, which was very good. There's also the option of a cooked breakfast, which seemed quite expensive for what was offered.

We stayed here for location reasons. I'm not sure whether I would stay again; it was probably a bit expensive in my book for what was offered, even though we secured a room for c.$150 for the night.
