Best Weekend Ever

  • 5 of 5

To celebrate my 40th Birthday my wife booked a long weekend at Rona Lodge in the middle of winter for us and 16 of our nearest and dearest. Nowhere else in the Southern Highlands could we find a house to accommodate so many, and nowhere else would have been as perfect. Everyone was blown away by the comfort, the luxury, the warmth, the scale, and the facilities of the home. The tennis court, pool room and indoor pool were enjoyed, the gardens and fountains were beautiful, the sun shone, and happiness abound.

Based on our three night visit, I would recommend Rona Lodge to anyone with a sizable group who is looking for a beautiful and intimate experience in the Southern Highlands. We'll be back.

Magnificent Rural Property

  • 4 of 5

We are a group of 16 mature worldly wise women & we stayed 3 nights @ Rona Lodge

Grounds & whole package is a wonderful place to stay.

Gardens manicured & kept up to very high standard a joy to walk around.

Whilst we know it is up for sale there were a few issues that needed to be addressed to keep the standard of a high class rental accommodation of this calibre & to enable the rental return costs justified

Their preferred caterers :1. booked out 2.cancelled out at last minute leaving us to look after ourselves as no alternative

Main Suite: No instructions to operate hot water in shower.

Door off main bedroom to balcony no access or key.

Cottage : was not air conditioned & no fans supplied.

Tea & coffee not provided only in main house limited.

Main House: 1 glass jug (broken) & 1 stainless steel jug only for 16.

Coffee machine no instructions or beans provided

1 Jar Nescafe coffee & one variety of tea bags( no selection provided) to service both areas

Main Dining Room off lounge area had plastic chairs & plastic tablecloths not in keeping with house of this quality or calibre.Nook area off this room had lounges that the springs had sprung.

Pool: was dirty & cold & spa only just off cold had not been cleaned from previous people.

Rang owner who sent someone out next morning to clean & reset timer which was not working but this was not enough time for us to use as timer came on for two hours then went off again.

Garbage:Only one bin which took all garbage & bottles not enough space for our group considering all the cooking we did ourselves (no Caterers)

We had to take some rubbish & most bottles to dispose of ourselves.

We hope that this will be taken as not negative feed back but just constructive information to help improve Rona Lodge

Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful venue for a family function. Bedrooms and multiple living areas are separated, so that bedrooms are quiet. The gardens are magnificent. Plenty of space for outdoor activities, including tennis. The indoor pool and hot tub is a great attraction.

A fantastic and amazing place

  • 5 of 5

The grounds were magnificent - truly breath-taking, and the property itself was immaculate and grand. The spa and pool were preheated for our arrival, which is one example of how the owners consider the comfort of their guests. The only problem was that we had no hot water for the showers for a day or so but otherwise a truly lovely place that i have no hesitation in recommending.
