It was chilly out and Virginia had lit the lovely wood burning stove to welcome us. She offered to phone the local diner to ask them to stay open if we hadnt eaten,...

We choose this B&B for it's proximity to Melba Gully, which it is close. Overall our experience at this B&B was below the standard of hospitality / facilities we expected and not indicative of the cost. The gardens are beautiful, and obviously a labor of love. Top marks for the garden. Unfortunately it's downhill from here. The room is very...

The following morning, we...

such and amazing location. Quiet, tranquil and gorgeous. Great hosts and great for a relaxing getaway. The glow worms were a definite highlight for us. The little pinpricks of light guiding us through the darkness was magical.

Bob and Virginia are a lovely couple who provided us with a lovely room and breakfast in a beautiful location. Their garden is just splendid and a pleasure to walk through, and for people who like dogs - they have two adorable greyhounds! Just one kilometre down the road is the Melba Gully rain forest walk, where glow worms light...

Virginia and Bob are delightful hosts and run a charming B&B set on a gorgeous property full of flowers, and a huge selection of various trees. The setting is tranquille and the birdlife is fabulous. The rooms are cosy and very clean but note there is no TV. You should be here to enjoy the beautiful surroundings. Just 2 minutes...

A friend and I arrived late in the afternoon so did not have as much time as we would have liked at this beautiful garden. A toot on the horn (as the sign says) and Virginia appeared with her two beautiful greyhounds to welcome us to her property. After a bit of a chat and a pat of the friendly...

There was much to enjoy about this B & B. The gardens are blooming, pretty, well-kept, thoughtfully marked ("Hmm, I wonder what this tree is...? Ah, here's the label.") and loved by the birdlife. The room was comfortable, clean and included everything you'd expect. Virginia and her dogs were friendly and relaxed. One touch that I smiled at was the...

“As it was a very warm night and with no airconditioning, were glad of the upstairs room which "caught" any breeze. One small ( constructive I hope) criticism is the towels were harsh & felt like drying with sandpaper.”
