We had a king spa room which is probably the cheapest room at $449.00 per night and stayed for 2 nights. The accommodation was comfortable and decorated as you would expect a coastal holiday home to be, with white timber shutters, a comfortable deck area and floorboards. I found the bed much too soft for me and ended up sleeping... More

We needed a quiet, peaceful escape close to Sydney for a night and Bells was a great choice. The accommodation was extremely spacious and comfortable and we we didn't hear any noise from the neighbours in the two bedroom cottages. Sadly the weather wasn't great so we really couldn't enjoy the lovely manicured gardens and pool on this visit. We... More

We spent six lazy days at Bells at Killcare. The weather was dreadful but the staff looked after us so well from housekeeping to receptionists to the waiters none could do enough for us. They were all so kind. The gardens, the food, the accommodation - well they were just perfect as well.

I expected more from this place as the very positive word of mouth and online reviews raved about the beauty of the location and premises (very true) and the luxury of the accommodation (not so true). I attended a 3 day overnight meeting here and had the opportunity to stay a couple of nights in a cute cottage suite. The... More

My fiancé and I went for locals night and were pleasantly surprised. The service was outstanding and the food was delicious and very well presented. We had no idea what to expect other than we knew it was a well known restaurant for its class and good food. We would go again

My friends and I enjoyed a 90 minute massage each at the spa. The spa was flawless - therapists lovely, the ambiance relaxing and treatments were truely relaxing. It was one of those day spas where you don't have to worry about a thing - the therapists covered everything and were very informative. I will definitely be back.
