The location was perfect as it is right in Olinda. It is fill of character and well presented.



November, 2012

The room was even more attractive than via pictures on the net. The room was spacious and very tastefully decorated.The staff couldn't do enough to make your stay a memorable one.

The atmosphere was lovely, very homely



October, 2010

The moment we arrived at the property we knew we had made the right choice! The Loft in the Mill was certainly the most beautiful and memorable place we ever stayed in. If not for the equally beautiful surroundings that we would also like to savour during our short stay e.g. the rhododendron gardens and Sassafras village we would be content just to laze around in our suite. We just loved it! The Management was very generous with supplies and we are very happy to have made the acquaintance with Brad & Donna and Heather...they are such lovely people, very friendly and helpful.We would love to come back!

helpful and friendly staff. Great facilities for a family of 6. We attended a wedding and enjoyed a day at Puffing Billy.
