Our stay the weekend of the 6th of December was blissful. The wedding we attended was superbly catered for and our king suite was immaculate, quiet and comfortable. Manfredi at Bells was the highlight! Our Sunday evening dinner transported us to gastronomical heaven. The duck-filled ravioli were sublime and pork belly of highest standard. Hats off to the bar staff who were knowledgable and put an extra flourish in their service. Marta Madison Sydney NSW

Luxurious nights at Bells

My Daughter and I spent three luxurious nights at Bells. We thought the rooms was very well appointed and had a lovely relaxed feel. The toiletries were sublime. We enjoyed breakfast on the verandah each day and it was fresh and delicious with plenty of variety. We also enjoyed dinner on two nights. The Lamb was absolutely devine. We also went bushwalking and swam at Putty Beach. (Thanks to the staff who arranged the shuttle to collect us saving the steep climb back up to Bells) We also enjoyed at meal at Yum Yum Eatery in Hardys Bay.

Bells is a superb resort with glorious gardens, comfortable accommodation, sensational cuisine and attentive staff- 5 stars all the way. We cant wait to return.

Marvellous time

Dear Kitty,

Just a quick note to let you know that a marvellous time was had by all yesterday. The venue was just perfect, the food delicious and the service excellent. The shared antipasto was a great way to start and was enjoyed by the children as well as the adults. The children really enjoyed trying the new foods and tastes in the entree but were then happy to return to the tried and true pasta before dashing into the gardens to play leaving the adults to enjoy their mains. And as for the cake ... Everyone was so obliging and accommodating and what was greatly appreciated was that there was no pressure to leave -talk about a long lunch -we were still there at five. Without doubt though, a great part of the success of the afternoon was due to the marvellous attention and service provided by our waitress Jamie. She was just so delightfully pleasant and charming despite the endless demands on her. Please pass on the thanks of the whole group to her. Again many thanks for your assistance in preparing for the day.

Regards, Brigitte

Two wonderful nights

We stayed here for 2 wonderful nights and were really impressed, staff were excellent, accommodation first class and the restaurants was something to behold. Dean cooked a wagyu sirlion for me that made me savour every mouthful. Nothing disappointed and it's a credit to you all, we took a seaplane package and must say from the moment we arrived in Rose bay to the time we arrived back the whole experience was faultless. Special thanks to Kane, made us feel very welcome.

Wow! What an amazing place

Wow! What an amazing place. My partner and I spent 4 days at Bells and we never wanted to leave. The surroundings, rooms and extra details that Bells have thought about truly make it a 5 star experience. Not to mention the lovely staff. Every single person was kind, helpful and friendly. We are yet to see such a high quality of service from each person at a hotel. Thank you.

Well…. Where to begin?

Dear Karina and Brian, Well…. Where to begin? Last weekend was our 3rd visit but our first time staying at your beautiful establishment. It was a special occasion for our Anniversary and was all organised by Kev who made the entire weekend a complete surprise. As we turned into the driveway of Bells I was ecstatic! We have attended the restaurant previously, once for the most amazing lunch and secondly for charity concert and lunch. I am a complete foodie and wine lover and Manfredi’s simply never disappoints. Your wine list is one of my favourite things about the whole Manfredi’s experience and I spend longer immersed in its fabulous choices, than I do on the menu itself! Staying at Bells allowed us to enjoy two wonderful dinners and breakfast each morning, complete with beautiful vintage bottles of Brokenwood and Tyrells VAT 1 and of course, Prosecco to accompany breakfast! We had the pleasure of meeting Hayley on our day of arrival and she ensured that we were amazingly looked after from the moment we entered the restaurant, to the moment we left to return to our beautiful room. Her level of customer service is second to none and she could not do enough to ensure our stay was amazing! She represents your company to the highest degree and is a definite asset to you. Speaking of the room….. we travel a lot for business and never have we experienced such a cosy, warm and luxurious space. The bedding is beautiful and I have not had such a good nights sleep for weeks! We loved everything about the bathrooms, including the heated towel rails, the roomy shower and the beautiful hand and body wash (so much so, we purchased some to take home with us!). We also took advantage of the board games in your reception room – I lost Scrabble, but I feel the loss was due to being too relaxed laying on the floor of the villa in front of the fire! Finally, Kev had booked us a massage in the couples room at the beautiful spa. The ladies are very professional and the space is beautiful. The massage was incredible and had they had availability on the Sunday, I would have booked in for a second massage! Your beautiful venue is a testament to your hard work and pursuit for excellence. Everything about the Bell’s experience is amazing and your staff should be praised for their commitment to your cause. We did not want to leave and cannot wait to return. Thank you once again to yourselves and all of your staff (especially Hayley) and hope to see you again very soon. Kindest regards, Erin

Gorgeous setting - lovely rooms

A gorgeous setting and lovely rooms and warm friendly staff. Some upgrade to luxury comfort pillow top beds. The restaurant superb, but suggest a few more healthy options, not as many spices/sauces and vegetarian dishes would be nice to have a choice. Would also love to use the pool, but is often cold, suggest some heating and a cover in winter.

Always want to return x

Worth every dollar

We experienced the best of service and beautiful surrounds! Our studio apartment was just wonderful, and our evening meal was superb - we enjoyed our dessert and coffee in the lounge area - just to finish it off! The breakfast (although advertised as "continental" ) was also delicious. We didn't need to add to it - home made everything - and service with a smile and professionalism. Worth every dollar. Viv

Delightful place to spend a weekend

Delightful place to spend a weekend. bungalow and surroundings were fabulous. Food was good , especially breakfast on the balcony. We love the position as it is close to the wonderful Maitland Bay and Kilcare beaches. Hopefully we'll be back soon.

We will certainly return and send our friends. Not forgetting the gardens. Thank you Jan and John
