"Sarah's house was impeccable and the fact that we could bring our dog was a huge relief and we felt most welcome. Sarah went out of her way to accommodate us, literally giving up her own space when we needed a longer stay at short notice. Great generosity of spirit and a lovely home." Sue and Family

Guest Reviews


“An enchanting, luxurious hideaway....”

I needed to have a break away for a few days and didn't think it possible as I have two adorable pooches I wouldn't leave. What a wonderful suprise to find accommodation that could accommodate myself and my precious pups. From the moment of contact Sarah made herself available to answer any queries I might have concerning my stay. She emailed information and the day we were arriving phoned, messaged me and was there to welcome us. The garden cottage was most enchanting and delightfully situated at the back of the garden with my own garage and remote controlled roller door making for easy access. It was a stress free stay in the city as the accommodation was a delightful refuge from the hussle and bussle. Loved the situation making easy access to either North or South of the city main roads. Sarah has very thoughtfully covered every aspect of your needs away from home. The delightful luxuries in the cupboards, the oh so gorgeous bath towels and robes, gourmet coffee, tea and tasty little treats made it a very special stay. What made it simply the best was Sarah's kindness and care of my pooches. Clearly an animal lover she made them very welcome lavishing pats and cuddles on them. The fish pond and water feature added tranquility to a peaceful setting in the garden where I sat and read with a cuppa and pooches playing nearby. Well done Sarah and thank you for everything.

"Agreed with previous reviewers - Home away from home"

This was our first experience of a B&B after years of hotels and tourist parks. The accommodation is as described on the website and is historic-property charming. The crockery/cutlery and amenities provided are aesthetically blended in with the decor and are presented so nicely we thought it was a display cabinet until Sarah (proprietor) explained it was all for our use. Her friendly and caring attitude made us feel right at home and adds a special something to the already great accommodation. Free WiFi Internet , easy nature-strip marked parking for the rental car and great location made this an ideal base for our holiday. Easy car access to Fitzgerald St (Alexander Drive) and from there you're only a few minutes drive to the CBD. If you want to get a bit of gentle exercise she provides walking maps with distance & times to local facilities. We didn't have time to try all the facilities provided due to many family commitments but the thoughtful touches were evident everywhere, right down to special egg-cups and instructions for poaching in the microwave.
