Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The most hostile treatment I’ve ever experienced, ownership of this formerly lovely place changed in September and the new owners lost a booking for my parents 50th wedding anniversary (that had been paid in full several months in advance) and refused to honor the booking. My advice is to avoid staying here at all costs.

My husband and I stayed two nights in the King George room, it was gorgeous. Self contained with courtyard, we found it very charming. Great access to restaurants and shops. We toured around and went to the Tulip festival which was just beautiful. We had a lovely stay, a huge thanks to the owners.

I spent two nights in the beautifully appointed Loft Suite. Spacious yet cosy, with luxurious bedding. The entire boutique establishment is charming. Easy parking and just a few steps from the main shopping strip in Olinda. Best of all was the delightful welcome of the proprietors, from the moment I booked over the phone to the warm and friendly greeting on my arrival. It will be my pick again for the next visit. Thank you.

The lady who booked us in was just gorgeous and set the tone for a amazing night. The King Arthur suite was so comfortable and unique. The spa and fire were highlights. Thank you! I think we've found our new winter destination get away.

Firstly, the fascade is undeniably intriguing and totally amazing! The hosts (Donna and Heather) and staff are absolutely fabulous and would do anything to make your stay comfortable. We stayed in the 'Hathaway' which is divine. There are so many little extras around the room. It was my husband's 60th birthday and they wrote a message on the mirror for him. The whole property is beautiful and just a stroll to lots of dining, shops etc. Also very close drive to other little towns. Totally loved it!

We stayed for one night while visiting friends in the area. There is a nice spa, a fireplace. It was a rainy day, the entry is via the back of the house, not easy to get there back at night on a very foggy night. Breakfast is just in the fridge, minimal. The bed was very nice an comfortable, parking the car free. The next day, no office available, just drop the key into a box.

Booked 4 nights accommodation with the property, which included a light breakfast. Using their website we chose the Herb Room because I liked the idea of a private little courtyard through french doors. Easy book in & we were shown our room. It is straight off the carpark. Its a cute little room decorated with lovely horticultural drawings, a couple of comfortable arm chairs & a very comfortable bed. I am glad we had the courtyard as it provided a bit more space. There is a tv which does not have good reception & wifi is very patchy & cannot be relied upon. There is an small alcove where you prepare you own breakfast. Kettle, bar fridge, toaster, microwave & sink. Breakfast provisions are 2 choices of packet cereal,milk,fruit juice, bread, jam & vegemite & butter. Tea bags & instant coffee. This is sufficient to get you going in the morning but average quality. The ensuite is small & consists of spa bath with very good shower, small handbasin & WC. There is no window. The hotel is located on a busy road but we did not experience road noise at night. Our room was serviced daily. During our time here we did not see any staff, other than at check in, with check out consisting of key drop off in a box.

We stayed at The Loft in The Mill in The Carriagehouse just before Christmas with some friends. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, made even more special by the lovely Heather and Donna. The accommodation is spacious, comfortable and so very homey. The house itself had everything we needed and more. Lots of goodies in the kitchen, to help kickstart our stay, a great kitchen for cooking if you like, plenty of seating in the loungeroom to enjoy a movie, and another seating area with comfy chairs to sit back and chat with a wine. A great outdoor space to chill which was very private. Within walking distance of restaurants and shops, you can leave your car behind and enjoy the walk. The town of Olinda is lovely, lots of restaurants, short drives to nearby villages and very relaxing. We look forward to coming back again to this fabulous property in winter.

A great location right across the road from the Olinda shops and cafe’s . We stayed in the Carriage house which was a 3 bedroom house though one bedroom was locked and not accessible? Not sure why . Bedrooms upstairs- no lift. Master bedroom with en-suite and then there was a second bathroom upstairs with shower as well as a spa bath. Beds were fresh and very comfortable, towels and linen supplied. A number of gas heaters both upstairs and downstairs , plus a lovely open fire with wood supplied. Large fully equipped kitchen and dining area that seats 6-8. Lounge area had couches and sitting chairs - all very comfortable. Lots of magazines in a cabinet , available to read . Tv in lounge smallish but doable , and one also in second bedroom. Breakfast provisions were limited but ok. Kitchen could do with a coffee machine as well as cocoa for hot chocolate. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The only negative was a very pungent sewerage smell at the front of the house and around part of the grounds . Lots of places locally within walking distance . Will come back again.
