Stayed at the Bells Boutique with dinner and breakfast.... Accomondation was tranquility. Nestled amongst the natural landscape with the lake greeting us. Luxury bedding fireplace. Dinner georgeous. Servers very friendly and attentive. Breakfast delicious..... $$$ so save your pennies for this estravagant sleepover. Unfortunately Bells cant help other guests poor basic manners and their insistant use of mobile phones whilst... More

Bells has a standout gardens. Utterly beautiful landscaping especially around the lake. The restaurant food was very good and the service in the restaurant very professional. More broadly we felt the experience lacked the 5 star rating aspired to. Our room, whilst admittedly one of the cheapest, felt dark, a little dated in style particularly the bathroom. It was crammed... More

We spent only 24 hours away from our kids on this getaway yet returned feeling refreshed, relaxed and incredibly happy. I suggest booking a package that includes dinner at the restaurant and massage/facials

Great place for a lunch - atmosphere, food, wine, service - what more could you ask for. Went for my wife's birthday and she wanted to have the a la carte combined with items on the "Sunday Special" menu. No problem. In fact nothing was a problem with any of the staff. Would not hesitate to go again!

We were extremely pleased with our stay at Bells. The food was first class in the restaurant, and the night we had room service we were blown away when the chef and waiter arrived together to set out and explain the meal, which was excellent.

Gorgeous tucked away spot in Killcare. Stayed 2 nights for a weekend which included breakfast for a family wedding. Not cheap by any means, but a beautiful spoil in the cottage we had near the lake. The cottages are all different and beautifully done. Lovely fires that heated perfectly and a verandah to sit out on. Set amongst bush so... More

We understand that Bells are “trying” to achieve a luxury escape close to Sydney surrounded by beaches. Unfortunately, apart from the restaurant, they truly fall short. Lack of service and generosity: We have no objections in paying high tariffs…however if Bells are going to charge 5-star prices, they need to deliver a special experience, and the experience at Bells was...

We took relatives visiting from abroad to stay at Bells at Killcare as we'd heard so much about the place. Granted, the property is beautiful but I was a disappointed with the experience.

Gorgeous accommodation, which is spacious, beautifully decorated and cosy. Living area makes it easy to relax and the bathroom is amazingly spacious and well appointed. Breakfast buffet was to die for, amazing croissants and lots of options! Would highly recommend.

Really enjoyed our stay at Bells. Quality of the accommodation was very good, service was excellent and the food (particularly breakfast) was exceptional. We weren't that enamoured with the Central Coast per se (although as we visited out of season that may be a little unfair), but Bells itself was lovely. I really want to stress just how good the...
