About us

The Nunnery Boutique Hotel has a rich history dating back to the turn of the century.   It was originally named "The Bungalow" when it was built for an English gentleman and his family, it later became a Nunnery for the Catholic Dominican Order Nuns when a Dominican School existed in the village.  The Heritage Listed Oak tree in the front garden was planted by the original owners in commemoration of the birth of their daughter Elizabeth McCarthy.

Guests have access to sit and ponder under the oak tree, or enjoy the newly created  intimate garden courtyard to enjoy a cup of coffee or  a glass of wine whilst having a good conversation with old or new friends.


The guest lounge is just the place to meet for drinks before going out for dinner or just to read or relax.

A log fire in the Conservatory will be blazing during the cold winter mornings, this creates a wonderfully warm environment for you to enjoy breakfast.

Self help BBQ facilities for evening meals are available during the Summer months for outdoor dining.


Moss Vale is ideally located to explore the many attractions that the Southern Highlands has to offer, including vineyards and berry farms, rainforest walks, waterfalls, cycling paths and swimming holes.   The Bradman Museum in Bowral, the Wombeyan Caves and the river activities in Kangaroo Valley are amongst the many places that are worth a visit during your stay.

Moss Vale has become quite "gentrified" in recent years with some outstanding places to dine, including the famous  

3 hat restaurant named Birch, the Spanish restaurant named Carca and an exceptional Thai restaurant named Thai Som Boon.  

Antique shops, well known designer homeware and other specialty shops have now opened their doors in the Main Street.

A competition standard golf course sits almost opposite The Nunnery and the Aquatic centre is a great place to cool off in the Summer months, so bring your swimmers with you. All of these attractions are within  easy walking distance from The Nunnery

I look forward to making you welcome at The Nunnery,
