The place was so beautiful. There was heaps of things to do like toasting marshmallows by the campfire, bbq, tennis, badminton, indoor swimming. Julie and Michelle were so friendly and very helpful. Highly recommended!

There is so many beautiful little touches and suprises to staying at Possum's Hideaway. We stayed in the cottages twice now. They are rustic and cosy and so peaceful and relaxing. The wooden verandahs are lovely to sit and have a coffee. The fireplace was already lit when we walked in, making us feel so welcome. The facilities such as... More

This place is beautiful and cosy and warm. The tiny gifts left with little msgs and fireplace were romantic and we had 3 different possum friend visitors return over 2 nights for berries! Would recommend :)

We are so pleased Clare that you enjoyed a relaxing romantic stay in one of our Possums Hideaway Cabins.

What a perfect getaway. Was expecting good things, but what we got was far beyond that. Little extras like a sweet on the pillow, and candles in the bathroom were small touches that made it memorable. The fireplace was even full of kindling ready to light. The grounds were beautifully manicured and staff very friendly. I would definitely recommend it... More

Cabin was smoking hot inside with the fire place... Even tho it was below zero degrees Celsius outside we were sweating balls. Possum knocked on the door on our second evening looking for some more muesli but we didn't have any. So we gave it a toke on the spliff being passed around and he soon left with the munchies...

Beautiful location and very well located for Blue Mountains and Scenic World. The bungalow was well maintained and well equipped (including very efficient gas fire and air conditioned heating, microwave, complimentary tea bags, coffee and marshmallows to toast). The back up facilities were fine. We did not expect that the only oven would be communal under a central canopy. However... More

Often it's the attention to detail that can make such a difference when you stay somewhere.

The room was cozy and clean, with the heating already on upon arrival. Clean, private and really enjoyable. The hotel is a stone throw away from some brilliant eateries, 1 km from some of the most breath taking views the mountains have to offer, and the people are friendly. A definite return from me!
