Nice place, feels like home, clean and tidy. Breakfast is also nice. The only one thing is the internet which is a bit slow, because phone signal is not good so that internet wifi is more important.

We are addressing the Wifi connection, which at times can be slow. However the phone connection is absolutely OK.

We had a relaxing stay at Fiona and Graham's place. The house is clean, well-decorated with the incredible artworks and the beds are very comfortable. We're impressed by their hospitality, beautiful breakfast and lots of amenities provided. It made us feel warm and welcomed. They're the best hosts we had from Airbnb so far.

Fiona's place is excellent. Myself, my partner and two friends stayed here as we were attending a wedding in Berrima. Fiona and her husband welcomed us on arrival and showed us around. The kitchenette was well stocked with breakfast essentials. The house itself was beautifully decorated, very clean and the blankets were so cozy! It's very close to the Main Street in Bowral too. Highly highly recommend!

Woodland Retreat is a lovely cosy place to stay looking out onto a very pretty garden. Perfect for 2 couples attending a wedding in Bowral. We walked into town for coffee and shopping. If not keen on the uphill walk back then a short cheap taxi ride. Everything we needed was supplied and more. Appreciated the yummy brekky food and marshmallows. Graham and Fiona great hosts even dropping us off at the train station the morning we left. Highly recommend this lovely little gem.

We stayed at woodland retreat for one night while attending a wedding in Bowral. The house was super comfortable, clean, and had excellent amenities. The location was good,being only a very short drive to the main streets of Bowral, and I would highly recommend woodland retreat for anyone visiting the area.
