Great place to stay for relaxing and soaking in the nature. Wonderful service and room is very big and comfortable. There is a beatiful garden walk around the site. The swing at the top of the mountain is a must to try. The view is magnificent. This place also has a beautiful swimming pool and a spa (forgot to take some photos). Mt Hay is a place worth to come again when possible 🙌

Lovely tranquil spot just 10mins up the mountain from Berry. Rooms are decently allocated size-wise and modern (green room was in any case). Well run and staff as annoying or out of the way as you need. Made the stay most enjoyable.

Secluded and peaceful, amazing views, close enough but far enough to nearby towns. Gorgeous gardens and surrounds, couldn't have been more relaxed if I tried. Room exactly as described, super friendly and helpful owners.

Great private and quiet place tuck away up the hill. Then again that's the general relaxing feeling around Berry. I suspect the retreat is either under staff or is a small operating team. The pool could do with deep clean, seeing moss while relaxing in the spa is not the best feeling. Walking into a beautiful rain shower bathroom with hair in the drainage as your welcome party is a bit disgusting. The fresh air and plenty of landscape makes up for it. Heated floor in the bathroom is a nice touch.Updated; booking name under my husband and I just replied to you privately. Thank you for your response.

My wife and I stayed at Mount Hay for four nights and we couldn't have been happier. Our room had amazing views of Berry while the room itself had everything we needed. We went for walks, made use of the indoor pool, enjoyed breakfasts in town, there was plenty to do and help us relax and recharge. Our hosts Anthony and Louise couldn't have been more accommodating. They were very friendly and were full of recommendations for the local area. We left Mt Hay with plenty of great memories and I have already recommended this getaway to friends. Great place to getaway from city life and recharge.

We had an absolutely amazing time at Mt Hay Retreat!! The feeling of serenity being the only place up in the mountains, a giant swing overlooking the valley, amazing spa facilities and of course the view from indoors. Anthony and Louise were lovely hosts, making sure we had a comfortable stay. I also got to see a wild echidna so that brings it to a 5.5 stay... Highly recommend

Wonderful weekend getaway destination! Absolutely lovely service provided by Anthony and the accommodation was spacious, calming and accentuated nature. Everything we needed was provided in the room and we were always asked if we needed anything when we ran into Anthony. The views through the floor-to-ceiling windows were amazing and so relaxing. We were personally given a tour of Anthony's place and were shown to his many animals which was a delight and made the trip even more special. The room provides a map of all the features to see on the property which was such a great idea with the must sees being the pond and giant swing. The massages we ordered beforehand were also excellent and punctual which we had done in the living space! Beautiful resort, host and area.

I found the perfect cure for burnout, just two hours drive from Sydney


The next morning we wake to sunny clear-blue skies. Even from bed, I can see the lush mountains and valleys through the floor to ceiling windows which opens onto a spacious private deck and garden.


I stood out on the deck soaking in the uninterrupted view which stretched all the way to the ocean, as the afternoon winter sun warmed my face. What school pickup?!


I’m not quite sure what I was expecting, but when I step through the front door the only word I can manage is, “Wow!” The view is staggering and it takes me a moment to process it.


Getaway: Mt Hay Retreat, a quiet luxury


The Escarpment Suite, …..exceeded our expectations. I was captivated by the large bath in the marble bathroom with views over the treetops. It was an oasis of serenity and indulgence.


This adults-only retreat in Berry is what all our romantic city-escape dreams are made of.

When I had an outdoor bath on top of a private mountain overlooking the rolling hills and wild Pacific coast, I thought quite clearly to myself – does it, actually, get any better than this?
