We came for some much needed R & R and stayed for 3 nights in the beautiful Possums Hideaway. We could not have found a more peaceful and quiet oasis. We enjoyed being surrounded by trees, saw big red parrots and a lyrebird walking by. The tree house was spotless and homy and we

Thank you Nicky for taking the time to 'pen' this review. Long standing guests such as yourselves are truly valued - we are grateful for the pleasure of hosting your family year after year. And thank you Nicky for being the ultimate 'encourager' - the one that notices our little improvements each year - your words are like 'oxygen for the soul'. Thank you. See you next year! 😊

We arrived minutes after the reception was closed on a Saturday. The hotel manager Jess spotted us and approached us to ensure we knew our way to the family room which was actually a semi detached cottage. Despite it was after hours for her, she still greeted us

We have stayed here before and enjoyed it. What made it special was the new manager Jess who could not have been more helpful. She facilitated our moving our booking away from a family with young children and was direct, friendly and very easy to deal with

Thank you Rob for returning to stay with us once again, it was lovely to host your stay. And in particular thank you for your kind comments re Jess our new property manager. Jess has been in the accommodation industry for a number of years, and has supplemented her on the job experience with formal hospitality training. Hospitality I am sure, is in her veins, and we are excited (and blessed) to have her oversee the operations of Federation Gardens and Possums Hideaway 😊

In Australia visiting family in Sydney and a trip to the Blue Mountains was in order. The night prior to our departure we phoned in and reserved a two bedroom accommodation at Possums Hideaway, as our relatives had stayed before. Great location in Blackheath. Short drive to

Does it have wheelchair accommodation
Good afternoon 'danjoy30'. I do not say this with any great joy, and by no means is this meant to offend in any way - but unfortunately a majority of our cottages have two to three stairs at the entry :( We do have two 'couples only' Possums Hideaways that have ramps at the entry; but the cottages are not purpose built in any other way for wheelchairs although they are open plan living. We also have one family cottage, a Linden Lodge, that has a ramp at the entry, but once again, whilst a spacious cottage, it is not in any other way purpose built for a wheelchair, in particular the bathroom area. I hope this enlightens you a little further, but should you wish me to clarify further, just let me know :) (Robyn - management)
