I was blown away by the incredible hospitality of this place. I’ve stayed in $6 a night hotels to $2000 a night, but this place knows how to make a get away personal and special. It’s the little things like personalised welcome notes, huge food baskets filled with local products and super friendly owners. It was a perfect place for my partner and I to escape from our busy work life and spend a couple of days relaxing in nature. We were greeted by lots of animals including possums and a range of birds. I appreciated given a bucket of birdseed to feed the birds instead of human food. That is a reflection of owners who care about their environment and wildlife. If I could choose to spend a place in a covid lockdown this would be it. My only negative which I spoke to the owner about was that he needs to update the photos on social media, but then again, no photo can really do this place justice! This place is worth the money!

We recently stayed at Narrows Escape for 2 nights and it was absolutely wonderful. The room was gorgeous, immaculately clean and very comfortable. Every small detail was thought of - right down to a bottle of Port, chilled wine, and high quality birdseed to put in the feeder if you wanted to attract birdlife to your balcony. A cheese platter and welcome food basket were beautiful and the evening meal BBQ hampers were top quality. The log fire was heavenly and a large range of DVDs and board games were available at reception for those who chose to use them. We will definitely stay again!

Booked a few nights here for a mini honeymoon and we could not fault it at all! The staff are so friendly, the room and the grounds were breathtakingly beautiful! Room itself could not be faulted at all. We certainly recommend this place and will certainly be booking more stays here in the future. Certainly a 10/10 for us!

We absolutely loved staying at Narrows. The hosts are wonderful and friendly. Nothing is too much trouble. The beds are super comfy! I love how the spa looks out in to the rainforest. The balcony is a great place to sit and watch the birds, there is even a hammock. The fire is brilliant for those colder nights and the instructions for lighting the fire if you have never done it before are pretty spot on! I highly recommend including a package if you are staying for a romantic get away the roses, rose petals and champagne on arrival are wonderfully welcoming and the couples massage and dinner delivered to your door is devine. The breakfast hamper and the hot croissants delivered daily were an absolute treat! 2 nights was not long enough!!

Dear SonyaJ35, Thank you so much for your sharing your experience at Narrows Escape! You are right, two nights (even for a mini Honeymoon) is not enough!! We do have a four-night honeymoon package which I highly recommend - perhaps for an anniversary instead? We are so glad that you enjoyed all the package extras, the massages are indeed divine! It was an absolute pleasure to host you both and we are thrilled that you enjoyed the magnificent birdlife and relaxing in the hammock. Congratulations again and we wish you both the most amazing life together. Best wishes, Ali and Xochi
