I have stayed at the Park Ridge Retreat a few times now and every time it has been wonderful. The rooms are a good size, especially is you book a King Spa room upstairs. The staff are all friendly and helpful, plus the chef is amazing. The hotel is only a two minute walk to the main street and about five minutes from the beach. You could not get a more convenient location to explore such a great area as the NSW south coast and of course Gerringong.

This establishment is perfectly located and within easy walk of shops, bars and restaurants. I can imagine this motel has been here for quite sometime...so I say that top marks must go to the people who had a hand in designing the decor when it undertook it's last revamp. Plenty of original artworks throughout and lovely ambience inside our room and in the corridors. It could very well have been just your average small town motel but this one really isn't. Though we only stayed one night, we did however enjoyed it.

Room tip: If you don't have too much baggage, the top floor units facing south seem to be the best for views

Overall very good, would stay here again. We had a Friday night here, off-peak season. Had top floor room with a room to the ridge beyond with lovely Galloway cattle grazing. Some top floor rooms would have the bed facing towards the distant sea. It was quiet at night to sleep despite the main road not being far away. Bed very comfortable, Room was clean and modern. Walking distance to main street cafes, restaurants, shops, walks and lookout. Room was spacious, had plenty of places cupboards/table/bench to put belongings. Good to find that the tea making facilities cupboard included plates and cutlery and toaster (perhaps because of COVID). Room and bathroom very clean. Manager helpful and welcoming. Minor points to be aware of, but these are not criticisms: 1. Bathroom had spa bath with shower head above; just a little tricky for a short person like me to step into the high bath to have a shower. 2.Car park has very low clearance, was not a problem for our small SUV but could be for a 4wd. 3. Some rooms on lower floors face into front car park/entrance, so I would recommend only staying on top floor. 4. No lifts in hotel, so be aware you may have to carry bags.

We had 5 nights at the Park Ridge Retreat and had a very enjyable stay. Shane the Manager was very friendly, courteous, and helpful. We had a Spa Room and it was very comfortable, i am a notoriously poor sleeper in hotel beds, but I slept well every night. The highlight of the stay was definitely the restaurant, had Dinner 3 nights and Breakfast twice, all the meals we had were cooked to perfection and very tasy, they had a special on whereby if a couple ordered two courses each you received a free bottle of wine to have with dinner, we chose the Chatsworth Estate Cabernet Merlot, which is a serously great drop.
Some small criticisms to balance the review, locking the room door involves pushing the button on the inside of the door knob and forcefully closing the door, this makes quite a noise, i am an early riser and usually like to have a walk at the crack of dawn, closing the door would definitely have woken my wife so i did not have early morning walks, also as everyone closes their door the same way, it can easily be heard from inside the room. The Park Ridge Retreats website says that it is a stones throw from beaches and the town centre, I certainly agree it is close to shops, restaurants and the town centre, however it is a good 15 minute walk to the beach and it is very steep and hilly, coming back up the hill, particularly at night with the poor street lighting in the area might not be for everyone.
The criticisms i have written about were minor, we had a very enjoyable stay, and would certainly return to the Park Ridge Retreat, probably not in winter again though, but in summer when we can make full use of the incredibly beautiful area.

I recently chose to have a couple of nights on the coast on the way home and booked into a king spa room. I'm a taller bloke and was pleased to fit in the spa comfortably. The bed was really comfortable and the meal from the restaurant was fantastic value and delicious.

The hotel is in a great location and easy walking to the main st areas with cafes and shops and even walking distance to the iga.

Staff were all friendly and very helpful.

Will definitely stay here again.
