It was before December 2017 but it was a stop-over to Yelarbon for what was the cheapest Auction of all time. The feed was cheap but all right around $10.00 per head. Majority of the food was of Indian cruisne.

Date of stay: December 2017

Absolutely loved our stay. We have dined there previously and had a look around this wonderfully preserved museum of a 1800 Mansion. So after viewing the rooms previously we decided we would come back and stay overnight. The owner/manager is the same gentleman who was there on our first visit and offers the same friendly hospitality. He works so hard yet always has a smile on his face. A true gentleman.
The room was a step back in time (if you ignore the free wifi and huge TV, which were a pleasant bonus). Some of the rooms are ensuite and others aren’t, although each room has their own private bathroom down the hall. Part of me doesn’t want to share this hidden gem in case it means we can’t secure a booking in the future as rooms are limited and always in high demand. They provide an excellent buffet dinner for $9.95 which is open to the public and include a free hot and continental breakfast for guests.

Room tip: Some rooms are ensuite, some the bathroom is down the corridor.

What a marvelous mansion . Price is great at $99 a night with breakfast . We stayed in the blue room downstairs , huge and opulent . What a novelty really . There are many rooms to look around , with plenty of intonation about the houses history and amazing restoration and antiques . Dinner had a Sri Lankan vibe and is a bargain at $9.95 . The host was very friendly and helpful . The breakfast was just ok . Would stay again . Walking distance to shops .

well priced, the room was terrific,the place is incredible, I love Tenterfield and this was a lot of wow,cant wait till I go back with the family, I want them to have the same experience as I did, I can not say enough, if you are going to Tenterfield this may be the cheapest and it has the quad triple wow factor

Room tip: I believe they would all be just as incredible as each other

There were various motels with vacancies but the sign said "stay in a mansion for $99 including breakfast" so we did! were shown the room by a guy who seemed to be the everything guy, he greeted guests, cooked breakfast, showed us around!! We had the Kirk Jensen Room, one of a couple of guys who restored the building, not completely I don't think. One negative could be that the general area for guests to make tea/coffee etc was right outside the door. 4 poster bed was fun, the dodgy veneer robe was not, the bathroom looked like it was last fixed up in the 60s yet the tilers tools were still in the vanity drawer. The water for a bath I desperately needed was barely lukewarm at 6pm, yet in the morning it was super strong and hot. Globes were missing in the bedside lights (which would be checked in a larger establishment, but earlier guests obviously said nothing) Brekky was pretty basic, cereals and hot dishes. The front rooms which are lovingly restored were great, and we were able to wander in them. There is also a cool winding timber stairway, then a ladder to the rooftop tower with great views of the district. You get what you pay for here.

Room tip: Kirk Jensen was fine
