This little place was beautiful. A 2 night stay was just what we needed. Celebrating both of our 40th birthdays this year we decided to take a short break without our small kids. This had everything, a fireplace, beautiful breakfast provisions and very welcoming owners. We loved it. Cant wait to return.

Lovely setting to enjoy some special time with a loved one - although there are 2 rooms available if you wish to share with another couple. The indoor pool is large and warm, fabulous way to exercise and relax too! Inside the suite is a large lounge with gas-log fire and kitchen for cooking the delicious breakfast provisions. Spa bath...

Aptly and truthfully named, this 'retreat' lived up to our expectations. We were welcomed by our host, shown around the tastefully decorated accommodation then left to enjoy the luxuries of the open gas fire; the cosy and welcoming lounges; dimmable lighting; spa bath; complimentary chocolates and wine; the very, very generous breakfast provisions (along with that most delicious loaf of...

Absolutely fabulous. Stayed for our honeymoon. Already booked for our first anniversary next year. Spa, pool, open fire, everything was just perfect. Highly recommend. Breakfast provisions were yummy.

The "Retreat at Stirling", while beautiful, comfortable and well stocked with breakfast provisions was unfortunately not a retreat for us. We splurged $500 on a 2 night stay - a rare treat motivated by our craving for an interlude of seclusion and tranquility in the Adelaide Hills. What we didn't expect was that the large heated indoor swimming pool co-located... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of The Retreat. We're pleased that you found our Retreat beautiful, comfortable and well stocked. But we are concerned that the noise from the Aqua-aerobics class clashed with your very reasonable expectation of a quiet and secluded time away. We value your feed-back. We are aware that the aqua-aerobic classes... More

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at The Retreat for 2 nights over our wedding. The girls and I stayed there the night before the wedding, and got ready in the loungeroom on the morning of the big day.
