Customer review rating 1.5/5

R R. Business - 19/06/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Paying $300 for the night to find a room with a very small and impractical bathroom view of the car park and a dodgy air conditioner we have had better. For that price we expect better.

Great Getaway

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Deborah Couples - 19/06/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

We were in a comfortable room on the top floor, up two flights of stairs. While this wasn't an issue for us, I know that a lot of people would not appreciate this. The sitting areas are lovely and we also had access to the verandah, which was lovely. We played golf and generally enjoyed the lovely surroundings.

Meg Couples - 17/06/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

We had a lovely two night stay at Peppers Craigieburn. The room was modern and warm, the breakfast was good and sitting beside the fireplace at night was lovely. We also enjoyed our round of golf.

Great location

Lawrence &. M. W. Couples - 16/06/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

We enjoyed our stay, we would have liked to have high tea in front of the fire as we have in the past, that is the only downfall of our stay.

Beautiful Gardens & Surrounds

Well looked after. Food good and rooms nicely presented


Customer review rating 5.0/5

Sandy Couples - 15/06/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

From the time we arrived, we felt very looked after. The staff were so attentive, especially Maggie. We loved the setting and the roaring open fires in every sitting room. We ate breakfast and dinner twice and both were delicious and plentiful. Thank you for an amazing stay and we very much look forward to returning soon.

Nice grounds. Very basic accommodation.

Customer review rating 2.0/5

Gm1111 Families - 14/06/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The grounds and commons areas are great. The signage to guide you to reception was difficult, especially as we arrived after hours. Staff were nice but undertrained and often incapable of simple tasks - like having to explain the post mix of coke was empty when we were served pale brown coke. Returned with the same. I explained a box of syrup would need replacing. Came out with a bottle of coke instead. Served us a bottle of Prosecco with no ice bucket and unopened - we opened our own bottle at the table! Rooms were tiny, basic with a view of a wall. TV dated, hard to use, remote often not working. Had to sit sideways on the toilet it was so cramped into the small bathroom. For a Peppers and the price of rooms you’d expect more - even the complimentary coffee and tea in the rooms was akin to budget hotels with sachets on blend 43. The room rate is ridiculous for what is delivered. I’d recommend room upgrades, smart TVS and Nespresso machines as a basic update to justify the rate charged. I would not recommend staying here.

Dear Gerry Thank you for your feedback following your stay with us at Peppers Craigieburn. I really appreciate the detail in your feedback and I will discuss this with the team. As you duly noted we do have a lot of new team members in our property like all hotels and we are working hard to get them trained and up to speed as quickly as possible. I am sorry that this impacted on your stay so significantly. Should you be planning a return trip to the area please do get in touch so that I may ensure your stay is a seamless experience. Kind regards Susie

excellent wedding venue

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Bettina J. Families - 14/06/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Our son’s wedding went perfectly in every way. The venue was awesome and the service was excellent. We stayed from Friday to Sunday, and the only reason I could not give a higher rating is the size of the bathroom which was almost airplane bathroom- size, so it was very difficult to get ready in - especially for a big occassion.

Very nice room

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Malcolm S. Couples - 11/06/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Staff were good location a little out of the town l would like to see a better menu at night

Handy location but facelift needed

Customer review rating 3.0/5

Rhonda Solo - 11/06/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Such an iconic property and one that I've heard so much about over the years. Great location. Peaceful but very close to the shops and restaurants of Bowral. All the staff I encountered were friendly and helpful. Exterior of the property, including the gardens, were stunning. The lounges around fires on the ground floor as you enter the property great for reading a book during the day or that plus a nice glass of red after dinner. The rooms, though, are in definite need of a facelift as they look tired and the bathrooms, in particular, are very dated. Things that I noted in particular were the difficult access through the shower door into the shower as it was located so close to the vanity. The doorstopper for the main door was right in front of the fridge and tea/coffee making facilities so there were a few stubbed toes! Likewise the doorstopper for the access to the balcony was right behind the chair at the desk so more stubbed toes! I paid extra for the shared balcony but ended up not using it as the chairs were uncomfortable and if you walked along it to get the best of the view it was too easy to see in other people's rooms. The Elms Balcony rooms further round had a much nicer balcony with better chairs that at least had cushions on them. Much more comfortable! The decor and furniture in the restaurant was also dated and in need of upgrading. The breakfasts I had and the one dinner (on the restricted, casual dining menu) were adequate. On check-out - because I had pre-paid and only had a dinner to pay for - I tried to pay cash but was told that they didn't have any change. There was then a surcharge to use a credit card to pay which I thought was a bit cheeky (although when I objected it was waived). All in all I enjoyed my couple of days away but there are other places to stay that represent much better value.

Dear Rhonda Thank you for your feedback following your stay with us. I have taken onboard your comments regarding the quality of bedrooms and the service points you mentioned and I can assure you these have been discussed with the team, I am sorry that this had such an impact on your stay. Once again thank you for your feedback and I look forward to welcoming you back to Peppers Craigieburn in the future. Kind regards Susie.
