The wife and I needed time away to decompress and having been here previously (7 years ago) this place was perfect. Emerald was just far enough away (from the kids) that the drive was enjoyable. Upon arrival the cottage hadn't changed much, but it was for the better. The features for us was the fireplace, spa bath and isolation. Everything... More

Anyone with pets knows how difficult it can be to find pet-friendly accommodation that you actually want to stay in too. Glenview Retreat offers the perfect mix of luxurious indulgence for us whilst allowing our furry friend to stay with us, which definintely makes it a stand-out in our opinion. The cottages are actually not two independent buildings as I... More

My wife and I had 2 midweek nights at Glenview Retreat, and could not have asked for better. The cottage was spotless and well appointed. The hamper breakfast - bacon, eggs, tomatoes, mushrooms, bread, juice, butter, & spreads was certainly more than we could possibly eat. Add this to the wine & chocolates on arrival and excellent coffee from the... More

We were looking for a weekend away, not too far from home. Being two couples we found Glenview Retreat the perfect get-a-way, we each had our own cottage, and it was only 1hr from home. Being winter, it was cold but the gas heater was something to look forward to when we came back after our walks. The breakfast was... More

We chose this place because we were looking for somewhere to relax for a couple of days and the choice was a good one!
