          Quiet and Relaxing Stay”

          Stayed for one night at the Lodge. Staff were very friendly and courteous. Our room was lovely and clean and cosy.. King bed was very comfortable. Tv with Foxtel also appreciated. Reverse cycle a/c and heating was welcome on a Winters chilly night. Also, the heaters being on before we arrived was very thoughtful. The Lake view outside our room was gorgeous. Wishes we had stayed longer maybe next time. Thanks!

          Great value in the middle of the Southern Highlands”

          The rooms are quite large, with a sunken lounge/dining that then opens out to a lovely green space and duck pond. Super clean and everything you need, it's also ideally located right in the heart of the Southern Highlands, with a max 15 minute drive to wineries, restaurants and shops. Have stayed here before, and will stay here again.

          We travelled as a group of 10 and really enjoyed our stay at Briar's. The best part was the view to the lake that was available from every room. The rooms were clean, had all the amenities we needed and the staff were really helpful. Would definitely stay again

          The rooms were lovely. All facilities so beautifully organised, so quiet and private from sleeping husband. The step down into lounge which put you at ground level for easy access through double doors to outside, made for interesting room layout. The view to the lake with lush magnificent trees just so relaxing. Breakfast in the conservatory fabulous. Staff so helpful and welcoming. Can’t wait to go back.

          Have stayed here as a couple and as a family of 5. The rooms are well layed out and the view from the rooms are fabulous. The Inn next door serves great food otherwise it’s a short 7 mins drive to Bowral. Plenty of room for golf clubs with several great golf clubs close by. Awesome place to stay

          Having stayed in a larger hotel in Bowral, thought it might be nice to try something different. I will not be going anywhere else from now on. The staff were helpful. The room while smallish was very clean and had the most lovely views across a duck filled pond. The bathroom was very clean and the water pressure was fabulous. At the time of our stay, the kitchen was not serving but went into Bowral for breakfast which was just fabulous. I can't wait to come and visit again.

          Luscious gardens at your door”

          The room was large enough and things bit dated the wonderful garden and lake outlook makes up for it. So peaceful and beautiful. Nice sheets, wonderful shower. None of that 10litre/min stuff! Stay a few nights. Explore the wonderful district.

          PLEASANT STAY IN BURREDOO”

          We choose to break our at the Briars County Lodge in the southern Highlands. It was a very good choice and we could not have enjoyed the stay more. Breakfast was lovely overlooking the tennis court. the service was great!

          Good location, facilities and value”

          Briars is well located between Moss Vale and Bowral and within easy driving distance from Sydney. The rooms are well appointed and well kept. Most rooms open out onto a small lake with abundant wild life. Very enjoyable for a short stay and very good value for money.

          Beautiful and Peaceful”

          Lovely location south of Bowral. All rooms face a large lake with water feature, gazebo and resident ducks. Very relaxing sitting outside your room and watching the wildlife. Staff were friendly on arrival and departure, room was clean and parking easy. There is a function centre which would be great for smaller weddings also. Only down side was a recent fire in the kitchen which prevented us from dinning there for dinner, otherwise breakfast was available if required.

          Pleasant place to stay”

          Have stayed there many times in the last thirty years. The rooms have been cleaned up and furniture modernised. Very neat and clean. The rooms have a lovely outlook over a large pond with lots of ducks and ducklings. The only downside is that there are no flyscreens on the veranda doors and the windows have flyscreens but are extremely difficult to open and even harder to close. Would definately stay there again.

          Thank you again. Love going to Briars. Perfect going with friends, a game of golf for the men, whilst the girls go shopping, then off to one of the many fine restaurants of an evening.
