Janet & Ted Painter. 

Another great couple of days at the Park Ridge Retreat.

What a great dinner Fiona prepared on Monday evening. The eleven of us, all thought it was superb my sister and her family who live nearby at Shell Cove  commented  that it is the best in the area by far.




A wonderful place to stay and escape from the city. Situated in a great location. Friendly staff, clean and comfortable rooms and delicious big breakfast.



“Extremely close to shops and a short stroll to the beach. Fantastic view of the hills and ocean. Great value and highly recommend”



Great stay, loved the location and especially the bed. The mattress was so comfortable and actually resolved some back issues I’d been having for a few weeks so I would love to know what sort of mattresses are used! Staff were also great, given how busy they were they still went out of their way to be friendly and helpful! Thanks & will stay again.



Perfect location in the heart of Gerringong. Rooms are very comfortable and clean and the hotel has a lovely vibe.



Excellent accommodation. friendly hosts. Good room on ground floor.



This is a wonderful staying in your hotel, everything is just fantastic and all my friends love the arrangement. I will definitely share the great experience to my friends and recommend them to consider the accommodation in your hotel whenever they plan to visit that area.



Very friendly, close to town but quiet.




The room was good, it was quiet most of the time , the staff are helpful, the in house food and service is good.

June Smith

Thank you for an enjoyable and restful stay at Parkridge, I enjoyed your marvellous Resturant, Breakfast room service , and help with all my questions at the front desk, the table of pamphlets with local Info’ about local and the surrounding areas was helpful to me as I came by train not car. A big thank you for driving me to train station on morning of my departure. I hope to visit again in the future. Kind regards, June.



Jan and Gregg Aynsley

Thank you very much for providing us with such cosy accommodation for our winter getaway. The location was great and we really enjoyed our meal in your cute restaurant.



Joe Muscat

Just drove back to Newcastle from Tge South Coast. Our las night was at The Parkridge Reatreat in Gerringong. What a lovely stop it was for us after being on the road from Melbourne. I can easily say Parkridge Reatreat was the best of our stops. Comfortable room, clean bathroom and all in order. Food was also excellent not to forget the very helpfull stuff. We would stay there again, good memories.



Michelle Chichmanian

Shane thank you so much for your wonderful customer service and making us feel so welcome. Thank you to the waitress in the restaurant for being so helpful and full of personality. The food was delicious and the service was fantastic. Wish we could have stayed longer than 1 night. Park Ridge Retreat is a beautiful place and we will definately be back.




We had a great time and look forward to coming back! Special mention to the main waitress at the restaurant, she was super lovely and made our dining experience just that much better!



Kim Kermode

Thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay!! Will definitely be visiting again. Thanks again.



Leena and Bruce

We wish to commend you on your property. The rooms were absolutely immaculate as were the hallways and other areas. We also enjoyed our dinner in the restaurant. The pannacotta dessert was particularly delicious. We look forward to spending another three nights at Parkridge very soon. Kind regards, Leena and Bruce Coates




We had a very pleasant stay at your tranquil accommodation and a refreshing time in gerringong. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will certainly be back again hopefully soon. All the best, Vernessa




Thank you for your hospitality and for providing us the perfect venue to celebrate with family, my wife's 70th birthday. We enjoyed Park Ridge Retreat, your restaurant and the town of Gerringong. I am sure we will return in the near future.



John Sue

We enjoyed our stay at PRR, particularly the food in the restaurant and the artwork around the motel. We also found the coastal and country scenery spectacular and Gerringong itself worth visiting.



Dick Hurst

We had a great stay. Will certainly back returning.



Meredith Osborne

We were in Gerringong for a girl's weekend and stayed at Park Ridge Retreat. We had 2 Executive rooms, they were very nice, spacious, clean and very comfy beds. We would definitely return and would recommend to family and friends. Very friendly staff.



Ngaire Trainor

Easy and quick check in. Staff very friendly. Parking undercover. Rooms really clean. Food & service in the restaurant really really good, presented really quickly!! Thank you to all the staff.




We had a lovely overnight stay. Room was very clean and staff friendly. Restaurant was beautiful, we had breakfast & dinner there. Gerringong is beautiful with lots of lovely scenery. Will definitely go back again.



Barbara Deakin

We all had a lovely few days, and were very happy with the accommodation.



Lynnette Hooper

Very comfortable stay and I look forward to revisiting when I come that way again.




I loved my stay and so pleased I found your retreat, I'll be back very soon, the room was very clean and quiet.




I thought it was such a lovely relaxing place to stay. The town is quaint, and all facilities in easy walking distance from the Hotel.



Elanor Baker

We had an absolutely wonderful time. Gerringong is such a beautiful town and the Park Ridge was excellent. Thank you so much.



Sam Baker

Thanks Very Much My Dad , Sister And My Self Had A Great Time Staying Here At The Park Rodge Retreat. Thanks It Was A Great Place In A Great Area.




My husband & I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Park Ridge Retreat especially catching up with my relations who also stayed there as we were attending my aunt's 90th birthday at Mayflower Village and of course to celebrate my uncle and aunt's 60th wedding anniversary. The dinner we had on Friday night at your restaurant was absolutely delicious and we thanked the chef for an outstanding meal. Kind regards Glenda



Eamonn Hayes

Excellent service, manager was always happy to help at any time of the day/night and very friendly about it too. Room was clean and the view was great. Overall a great place to stay in Gerringong. Highly recommended.




Enjoyed the close proximity to cafes and shops and attended a lovely Christmas Day Mass at Star of the Sea. However, while the room was quite spacious and bed comfortable, we have never experienced the bathroom not being cleaned each day and sheets left unchanged for the entire 3 nights we stayed (while paying premium rates). This I did bring to the attention of the manager who actually made no apology for this unfortunate practice at the Park Ridge Retreat. We of course sadly will not be returning to this accommodation any time soon.




The tittle retreat reflects exactly what I found your establishment to be. Gerringong geographically is beautiful but what makes a holiday is the people with whom you come in contact and your team were so accommodating. I cannot speak more highly of the level of service I received. Thank you for offering a delightful, relaxing , warm holiday retreat which now allows me to get back into the daily grind. I will return.




Yes, thank you. We enjoyed our stay. Our room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Being located right in town was great. Merry Christmas,




We enjoyed the visit and thank you for your great friendly service. Terry




We had a lovely stay at Park Ridge - very clean, bright and great size room. We will be back.




We did enjoy our stay at Park Ridge and Gerringong thank you. We especially enjoyed the meal. Must admit it has made me rethink Kiama as our favourite South Coast get away spot! Go well




We had a fantastic time, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay with you at Parkridge Retreat. The room was very comfortable , clean and inviting. Thank you very much for your kind hospitality.We enjoyed our breakfast at your restaurant as well. We would love to come back and spend a little more time in this lovely town. We enjoyed watching the whales from our balcony as well.




Yes we did enjoy our 2 nights stay and very nice meals cooked by Fiona. We also loved Gerringong and will definitely visit again. Looking forward to our next stay. Thanks again for your warm hospitality. Kind regards. Jim and Yas



Warren and Judy

We enjoyed our brief stay @ Park Ridge Retreat and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to family and friends. We even saw whales from the Whale watching platform down the end of belinda street. We'll see you next time we're in the area. Warmest regards,Judy & Warren




I can't say enough about this amazing hotel. The Manager/Owner was so kind and friendly and gave great advice to us regarding the area, we felt incredibly welcomed by him and he seemed to be everywhere, helping housekeeping staff carry linens up the stairs, helping serve in the restaurant. The sign of a great Manager, is one who can help on the front line and be in touch with his staff and the challenges they face, I was so impressed with him. The in-house restaurant served beautiful food with a great atmosphere, the room itself was spotlessly clean and facilities were perfect with a lot of attention to detail. My husband and i enjoyed ourselves so much that we are considering moving to the Gerringong/Kiama area! Well done to all of the staff, i have already recommended Park Ridge Retreat to so many of my friends.




Thank you so much, it was a lovely stay. The staff go so far out of their way to make guests feel at home, I will definitely be back. Keep up the good work guys. Its a beautiful location and very peaceful.




We had a lovely short stay- lovely breakfast at The Retreat Restaurant and lovely quiet room. Which was what I requested so very happy and we would definitely stay again.



Chris Page

We had a perfect holiday @ The Park Ridge. Our host Shane was very helpful and friendly. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The food in the Restaurant was excellent and service great.




You made our couple of days in Gerringong very comfortable, thank you. The rooms are very clean and it's a quiet peaceful place to stay. The restaurant food was fantastic. Regards Brenda




Many thanks for all your service and the delicious meal for Gerringong Probus' Christmas in July on 25 July 2016. Hope you like the photo. Best wishes Janelle



Rod and Dawn

We had a very comfortable stay, the rooms were also very clean. The location is central in the town, and close to all the shops and cafes. Our compliments to the staff, who were also friendly, and the Restaurant served beautiful meals.



Maree - Goulburn

We stayed here last week and couldn't be happier. Nothing was too difficult for Shane & Fiona, they were extremely helpful with all of our special requests! Rooms were comfortable and clean and location was great. Thank you for looking after the Goulburn netballers!



Peta Conn

We have stayed at this hotel a number of times as we have family in the area. The rooms are always clean and comfortable. The staff are more than accommodating. Thank you to all the staff for making us feel so welcome and assisting with a couple of requests we had.



John and Sarah Smith

We stumbled to Gerringong and the Park Ridge Retreat last week. We stayed the night in one of the top floor rooms, which was fantastic, with king bed, balcony, and great outlook. We had dinner on the first night, and following that we end up extending our holidays for another three nights. It has been the most restful and pleasant stay we had somewhere out of Sydney for long time. The staff, food, cleanness and the location were all just perfect. We defiantly recommend the place and looking forward to be back.



Michelle Walker

Fantastic spot.. great place



Valerie Pontikakos

The weather was perfect and everything is so close to the accommodation. The room was nice and clean and having free WIFI is handy. It was a most enjoyable time and would recommend staying here to anyone when wanting to stay on the South Coast.



Arthur and Trish Wilks

Thank you Park Ridge, It was very pleasant stay and gave us time to relax and see the town and Surrounds. The room was clean and handy on the ground floor. The meals in the Restaurant were the best ever had. Close to all the shops and Cafes, we will be back when next on the South Coast.



Christine and John Byron

We had a lovely time at the Park Ridge Retreat, and will come back next time when we need some R and R. The place is very clean and comfy and the restaurant meals are top notch.



Mr Vittorio Guida

Your facility was accommodating to our late arrival, extremely clean and maintained rooms and surrounds and the facility is very central to many attractions and close proximity to cafes and restaurants. Your facility will be recommended and used again.



June Prott

Once again we had the good fortune to have two nights with our son and grandson and once again it was a perfect stay. Moshe was available to make us feel like family and we enjoyed being shown new up-graded rooms done to perfection. The rooms are very clean and attractive, beds and pillows are very comfortable and we could find nothing to disappoint us. Our son was also very impressed and after returning home our grandson made the comment "I really enjoyed the weekend and I hope we can go again" (12 years old). The meal on the Saturday night was very good in the restaurant on the same floor as our room. We will be back again as soon as the Bank Manager tops up our Bank Account!!! Thanks Moshe for everything. Room Tip: Maybe room in the back of the building although we have also stayed in the front without any noise p...



Sydney Explorers

We stayed at the Park Ridge for two nights and it was a great find. Location is ideal being right in the centre of town and opposite a park. Supermarket and shops are within easy walking distance. Communication with management was excellent as was their knowledge of the town. Our room - a king suite on the third floor was spacious, spotlessly clean and the bed very comfortable. The bathroom was large and though I am not a fan of the water saving shower heads I understand the need for them. The AC worked well on a very cold weekend. Our room faced south and had a good view out towards the ocean and there was absolutely no noise. We had room service both nights and the food was excellent, well priced and arrived at the time indicated. We will go back to Gerringong and will definitely stay here.



Kaye Rowe

The Hotel was lovely and very convenient to shops etc. Our room was very comfortable and very clean and management and the staff were very helpful. I shall certainly recommend Park Ridge to anyone heading to the area.



Veronica and Mike Devitt

We very much enjoyed our stay. Great location. Impressive views. Comfortable room. Very clean, with all necessary facilities. 2 meals at restaurant---enjoyed the "home style" cooking. Will certainly return---and recommend to others.



David and Coral Shaw

Thanks for your hospitality my wife and I and a wonderful time in Gerrigong, the accommodation was outstanding we will certainly be coming back



Deb G

We had been stuck in holiday traffic and I remembered this place from about 15 years ago so we left the road in the middle of Gerringong and there was a room available.

The owners have created a gorgeous place that was comfortable enough to stay in and central enough to move around from.

We ate at the restaurant for dinner and breakfast; for in-house food, it was really good. I'd eat there even if we didn;t stay.

This little town is gorgeous and the swimming beach is very special with good waves and lots of spaces for small kids to muck around.



Phear P

We recently stayed in room 14 for 2 nights with our 11 months old son. 


Our room was originally allocated on the bottom floor with the view of the garden and visitors parking at the front entrance of the retreat. But we were so glad that we had the option to chose another room located on the second floor (room14), generous size balcony, great view overlooking the ocean and the hills. The room size was spacious, enough for our son to wonder around happily. Clean sheets and good size bathroom. The only downfall was that the tiles in the bathroom/shower was very slippery when wet. The room smelt heavenly and the bed was comfy, although I found the that pillows weren't as comfortable to rest my head on, however, my partner found it very comfortable.


The food at the restaurant was delicious and had really good service. We liked that we could sit out on the balcony during dinner service as it made us felt more comfortable to dine away from other guests with our tired and whinging 11 months old son.


We really enjoyed our stay. We felt refreshed and relaxed. We look forward to our return.
