Review: A Relaxing Country Stay at The Berry View

Play, Travel / 22 November 2022

For a dose of fresh Shoalhaven air, lush accommodation, and a weekend away that will truly recharge your battery, book a stay at The Berry View.

Hotel renovations are all the rage and we think we’ve found one worthy of your next getaway… Located in everyone’s favourite south coast town, Berry, The Berry View reinforces everything we love about a hotel glow-up. The 1950s architecture remains intact while the finer details cement a relaxing and modern stay.

An example is a freestanding bathtub that swallows you whole, the Sarah Ellison swivel chairs, and the ceramic decor. And that’s not even the halleluja moment! Did we mention the hotel overlooks the glistening hill and local farmland so you feel miles away from Berry’s weekend hustle?

The 13 rooms give off distinct Palm Springs vibes with mid-century modern furnishings and warm ochre tones. They’re well equipped with comfortable queen-size beds and crisp linen, gingham robes, en-suites with O&M bathing products, air-conditioning for summer days, wifi, and TVs. We also loved the smart lock technology which allows you to check in and out as you please, without needing reception although they’re awaiting your arrival with a smile regardless.

Locationally you couldn’t be in a better spot for a weekend away. The hotel is a 5-minute stroll from the main street of Berry and less than a 10-minute drive to Seven Mile Beach where you can expect long rolling waves, perfect for those newby surfers.

While you’re in town, we’d suggest hitting up The Berry Hotel which has been taken over by the same crew behind The Berry View. They have also recently collaborated with The Feros Group to bring new life to the pub with exciting developments to come. On your visit, expect a classic pub feed with a charming ambiance created by locals and the original 1863 building.

In exciting news, The Berry View will undertake its second upgrade next year with a brand new building featuring 16 luxurious rooms, an infinity pool for guests overlooking the hillside, a communal area with sun loungers, and a firepit for those cold country nights.
