We are a team of professional tourism and education providers in Leura, a beautiful town in the Blue Mountains National Park and an attraction for tourists from every part of the world. The secluded 32-acre premises of Sinofield Edu-Retreat form an ideal learning and resting Xanadu. Starting out as a Chinese language and cultural centre in 2014, our focus has been providing authentic experiences to both the local community and visitors to the Blue Mountains region. Over the past few years, we have developed our own unique concept of “Education Tourism”. Today, we proudly present various cultural programs, as well as newly renovated accommodation to the local community. An oriental interior decor style has been embraced to highlight Chinese heritage, additionally we whole-heartedly embrace local and indigenous culture. Nestled in natural bushland, Sinofield is a meeting point for old and new, East and West.

Stayed here only for a night and I believe we could have been the only ones there at the time. The photos do justice and the rooms are as advertised. Staff member is very friendly. Mini me and I went for a walksie around the grounds. There is an old school kiddie playground near reception, ping pong table, footy field and basketball court. It looks like (and the website has confirmed this) that it used to be a school. We saw a pathway heading up the hill and were tempted to climb it, but decided to err on the side of caution. I highly recommend the accommodation for people that want to get away from the hustle and bustle. Loved the beds - very firm. Made for a fantastic sleep. Shampoo, soap and body wash are included as well as your standard milk, tea and coffee. The bathroom has heated tiles. There are no other toiletries, which would have been nice, and the televisions in the room are a little small, but not a deal breaker. Towels also included, so no need to bring any linen. The room is large, clean, comfortable with dining tables and chairs and we had a great view of the field. This retreat has no breakfast, room service or have any pools or spa. It is just around the corner from town centre (approx 2kms), so provided you have a vehicle, you should be ok to get any kind of food or other necessities. Wifi is available free. There is a parking lot available. If you have elderly, drop them off at receiving area because the main parking lot is downhill from the entrance. We spoke only direct to the person who checked us in. Upon entering the retreat, it will seem that any cultural decorations or displays that the website advertise seemed to have been taken down and/or put away. We walked past a Chinese dragon puppet prop hung in one of the hallways while we were exploring the property. However, after talking to a staff member activities are still available, but run through bookings direct and/or in accordance to demand. This property has LOADs of potential. The staff member advised that they have archery, calligraphy, dumpling making and even a theatre room and communal kitchen for large groups. I was blown away with this information, so given everything I was able to find out, am looking forward to seeing what I can plan when we come back with the extended family. If you want peace and quiet, I would highly recommend this property. Ultimately it boils down to what you are looking for. For us, it is peace, quiet and privacy. Given the price (we paid AUD$197.40 for 2 adults, a 16yo and an 8yo) for one night, I think it is quite competitive for the area. In return, we got a big space, peace and quiet, clean and comfortable accommodation. No bells and whistles.

I brought my young family up for a night to see the snow in the blue mountains and Sino-field exceeded my every expectation. The rooms were newly renovated, immaculate and spacious with great attention to detail being given for their interior decor. Cleanliness was 5 stars. And the addition of heated floors in the bathroom was a great feature. The Retreat is fitted with my facilities, including a children’s playground , ping pong table area, Tea Ceremony room (also good for playing Chinese chess) , and meditation room along with an outdoor full size basketball court and footy field. The value Sino-Field brings to guest for their price point is unmatched in the region. Special thanks to owner/operators Feng and Li for their amazing hospitality.

Rarely a hotel exists today where service is key. This hotel is run by staff who are understanding, accommodating and efficient! I travel extensively and am rarely impressed and I don't ever write reviews but I thought a special mention must be given to the people who make the place!

It was an old school and still looks like a school. We did not see any other guests. The hosts was friendly. Not sure about the ‘retreat’ name, there is no pool or spa and an old kids playground. Rooms are nicely updated, kids had foam mattresses and master bed was as hard as a rock. We won’t be back. Very very Chinese themed.
