‘Hilltop At The Lodge’ is a collaboration between husband and wife team Carla Jones & Richie Dolan and ‘The Lodge Bellingen’.
Chefs Carla and Richie met back in 2006 working alongside one another at Aria in Sydney. Life saw them work in many a kitchen, but it is their most recent work that really set them apart. Richie opened and was head chef at Chiswick in Woollahra, while Carla was head chef and co-owner of 4Fourteen in Surry Hills. After four years in these roles they decided to make the move with their young family back to Carla’s home town of Sawtell.
And the journey began to create a unique hotel with an exceptional food offering and seamless customer service with different styles of accommodation for everyone to enjoy.
