We couldn't have asked for a more enjoyable B&B experience during our 4 nights stay at Possums Rest. Our wonderfully convivial and entertaining hosts Sue and Phil couldn't have been more welcoming and meeting their beautiful American labrador Kari was an added treat. The Garden Room had everything we could possibly need including a very comfortable bed, a modern bathroom, wi-fi, reverse cycle air-conditioning, plenty of hanging space, tea and coffee facilities and a microwave. Sue's “welcome basket” containing delicious home made Anzac biscuits, fresh fruit and chocolate was a lovely touch. Breakfast in the main house was delicious and our hosts' suggestions on places to eat were much appreciated particularly the Hackney Hotel on Richmond Rd.
Possums Rest's location in College Park in Adelaide's north provided a great opportunity to walk to the Botanic Gardens and on to the CBD. Alternatively the local bus service from College Park had us in the CBD in 5 minutes! Possums Rest is a terrific B&B which we couldn't recommend highly enough. Thank you Sue and Phil.
Nothing was too much trouble for outstanding hosts, Sue and Phil, who with their local knowledge gave us some great suggestions and straight- forward directions to near-by highlights. Comfortable room with lots of little extras. Home made Anzac biscuits were a real treat. Beautiful breakfasts and wonderful chats over a morning coffee entertaining us with their cheerful and humourous tales, made our stay feel so welcome. We would highly recommend this beautiful B & B.
We have stayed in this delightful B and B four times and always feel so " at home". The difference being that we do not get waited on so beautifully at home. Every possible need has been anticipated from Sue and Phil's welcome with the huge basket of fruit, goodies and home made biscuits to the perfect breakfast served under the vine-covered pergola by the pool in the lovely garden. Even Kari the "fierce guard dog!" ( a lovely docile golden Labrador) extends her warm welcome. Our only worry in reviewing Possum's Rest is that too many others may discover it's hidden delights and it will be completely booked up when we want to return as we hope to in the future......
Thanks Sue and Phil Ogden for:
* Delicious breakfasts every morning.
* Excellent location, choice locality, on CBD's doorstep.
* Accommodation in beautiful garden setting.
* Garden-setting swimming pool.
* Friendly and obliging hosts, giving us lifts into, and out of, town. Also to Adelaide airport.
The accommodation is set in the back garden of 8 Catherine St. College Park, a near-city choice locality.
The accommodation, while compact, keeps things organised and near-at-hand. The summer of''16/'17 has been temperate, but had it been warmer, our accommodation would have been easily cooled by the air-conditioner.
Possums Rest has a lovely garden-setting swimming pool..Breakfast comprised muesli. Then followed by a generous fruit compote and unsweetened yoghurt. Bacon, eggs, garnishing, on fresh toast.. Big pot of tea. Finally croissants with butter and two types of jam. And Sue and Phil Ogden's company.
Thanks Sue and Phil for your company and conversation. And for your conveyance occasionally, finally to Adelaide airport.
