We stayed one night but a weekend would have been ideal using this charming old world hotel as a base for visiting the numerous waterfalls, the southern wine trail and Bowral with it's trendy shops and cafes. The property has an interesting history (country club, monastery, hotel during the last 100 years), lovely wooded grounds and gardens. The front desk...

I'm still in two minds about this review. One one hand, for what we got for our money, it was very overpriced, but on the other hand, the place is so full of character and I couldn't say we didn't enjoy our stay as there was so much character about it. We were on the road between Melbourne & Wollongong....

Booked and stayed at the Robertson hotel for two nights on what ended up being our wedding anniversary. What a fantastic place and we cannot speak highly enough about the efforts the staff (in particular Amanda) went to to make our stay memorable. Originally we were suppose to stay in October but due to circumstances this could not occur, however...

We are residents for 20 years in Robertson, and never has food ever been perfect until now with the New Chef who is establishing The Robertson Hotel for fine dining in Traditional French cuisine in the village of Robertson. The Hotel is now reverting to its historic birth in 1924 charisma as The Robertson Hotel. Step inside the hotel and...

We are a film crew of 25+ people who all absolutely loved our stay at the Robertson Hotel. The staff went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that we were well cared for and looked after for the duration of our stay; a particularly difficult task for an army that marches on its stomach! The food was...

What a disappointing experience. We went to have high tea for my mothers 75 the birthday and the terrible food really spoiled her birthday. We went a few years ago and it was delicious and a delightful experience but the change of hands has really changed things. We had a few over cooked scones, over cooked meringues and strawberries dipped...

Stayed for one night over a weekend... Staff were great and did what they could but the hotel was clearly understaffed... Property is a little outdated and in need of improvements but has some great character and charm regardless Restaurant service was ridiculously slow.. but again no fault of staff who were extremely apologetic Could be such a great weekender!!

My husband and I have just returned from a weekend at the Robertson Hotel. This was our second visit, the first being a weekend in early July with another couple for the Christmas in July dinner. The first experience left a lot to be desired, but I'm not going to dwell on that, because our return stay was brilliant. We...

We arrived at the Robertson Hotel to stay last week-end as we were attending a party close by . Check in was smooth. We were surprised at the dilapidated state of the garden. Pool was green with algae and closed, but it was too cold to swim anyway. We were shown to our room which was spartan, but we'd be...
