That's us just home from our 4th stay at The Hideaway. Gets harder to leave every time!! It truly is a special place for us, made even more so on our last night with a clear sky full of stars to gaze at from the hot tub. Thanks everyone, we will see you again soon

So good I'm writing this mid-visit. Excellent welcome with our fresh bread, local jam, local butter, and tattie scones. Excellent getaway for those who are manic busy with work, business and kids to reconnect, relax, unplug and refresh. The facilities are excellent - Bosch oven, smeg fridge and micro. Super comfy bed. Key thing here is the privacy and luxury....

This was a return visit for us - given the opportunity to get a couple of nights away from kids and couldn't think of anywhere better to escape to! If you're looking to get away and just relax, catch up on sleep and/or spend couple time then this is how to do it in style. We wanted peace and quiet...

I felt like I had walked into a scene from "The Holiday" the cottage was to die for so peaceful and private the hot tub was a great feature! The warm homemade bread and strawberry jam was so tasty. The bath in the bedroom was so lovely. The sauna and fire was so romantic! I loved how it looked vintage...

It might seem a little pricey if you were interested in booking this venue but my advice would be it's so so worth it. You forget about the world around you and melt into the sheer bliss of this venue. I found this wonderful little place on Trip Advisor when I searched for outdoor hot tub. I thought a hotel...

This was our third visit to the Hideaway Experience, but our first in The Honeymooners. We had a fantastic time. Everything was perfect from the hot tub to the sauna. The wood burner was a real highlight this time - the other times we've visited have been in the summer. Already looking forward to our next visit. A&V

Years ago I remember reading about the Hideaway, and after dropping numerous hints to my fiance, I eventually booked it myself. Now there's no denying it, the Hideaway is expensive, and compared to some local competitors, you can find yourself sceptical about whether it's worth the money. Let me tell you now, it is. The Hideaway is in a different...

Just back from a night in the Romantics Hideaway and it was excellent! Sitting in the hot tub in the snow was absolutely sensational! The log burner was wonderful and the shower and sauna room were just brilliant. Great service and such wonderful views. We will be back!
