The cabin is very spacious and well equipped with airco, a very comfy large bed, a luxurious couch, induction cooking and even a decent chef's knife in the drawer. The fully meshed balcony is equipped with BBQ so you can enjoy the view without being bugged. Only remarks I can place is that the lakeside cabins are pretty close to...

This B&B is located in a really tranquil bush settle, complete with Visits from baby possums and sharing your breakfast balcony the local Cockatoo, it's truly a special place! Little touches like fluffy robes and port and chocolate made us feel particularly spoilt. Breakfast is cooked freshly and individualised to your liking, they really go the extra mile to make...

I spent 1 night in cabin #6 with 2 friends. The room, kitchen and bathroom were modern with an AMAZING shower. The view of the woods was so peaceful and, sitting on the deck, we felt like we were in the middle of nature. Their was a generous bottle of complimentary port which we very much enjoyed, plus a pod...

This is a luxurious, quiet retreat. Each stand alone cabin is completely private. Lovely places to walk in the bush. A great stay when catching up with Brisbane friends. Sitting on the decking enjoying a drink as the sun set was so relaxing.

We spent a wonderful weekend at Mt Cotton Retreat. It was just so easy to book and, when we turned up, we were greeted and made to feel welcome and we settled in quickly. Set amongst nature, the nature reserve on the property means we got to see a range of birds and animals. The room we had was Art...

Thanks so much RozM for your beautiful review and for taking the time to let us and others know. The Art Deco cabin is also my favourite so very glad you liked it. The bedhead was made from old pressed metal ceiling tiles which gave us the inspiration for this cabin. Great to have you coming back so soon to...

Spent 2 nights with 3 friends. Paid almost $800 and feeling very ripped off. Breakfast was disappointing, the eggs were terrible and there was no English breakfast tea. The fly screens on the patio were ripped, some holes were covered in tape. One of our bath towels was full of holes. The place was difficult to find in the dark,...

Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback and I'm sorry that our experience didn't met your expectations. I just wanted to take the time to respond to your concerns. I think your group accidentally booked for 2 guests staying where there were 4 of you, so I can understand that you were expecting the rate you...

We spent 3 nights here last week while visiting friends in Thornlands. The cabin was comfortable and stylish, the bush setting is beautiful, the breakfast was great and the staff friendly and helpful. We loved the dog too. I would highly recommend the Mt Cotton Retreat.

A group of 6 of us stayed in a suite in the main house for 1 night as we were attending a wedding nearby. We did not get to spend a lot of time at the retreat. The queen beds were comfortable & the rooms clean & spacious. Some people slept in the single beds which were located quite high...

Thanks Princess Leo for the lovely comments and feedback. Yes our alcove single beds are quite unique and so many of our guests love the idea. They are higher than your standard bed but not as high as a top bunk (approx 1m) so we don't recommend them for young children and those who may find this height too difficult....

A funky place to recover after visiting "A day on the Green" at Sirromet Wines. Mt Cotton Retreat staff and service were very accommodating with a shuttle service to and from the concert venue at the winery and a late checkout the following day. The Eco Cabins were thoughtfully appointed in a beautiful tranquil bush setting. I cannot say enough...
