Thank you for taking time to review your stay with us, It is a lovely period home. The self contained Garden Apartment is lovely, with its views over the garden from French doors. One of the most popular B&B's in East Gippsland. Warm wishes Andrea & Keith owners and hosts of Dalfruin B&B

Thank you for your kind remarks. The apartments are very comfortable, with everything and more that you could possible want. They are also individually styled, so they do not have that motel, hotel look but offer something as your found more up market, but at an affordable price 10 mins walk in to C.B.D. or 3 mins drive makes ti also a perfect location, away from the highway and traffic noise. Warm wishes Owners and hosts Andrea & Keith Dalfruin B&B,

The place was immaculate with lovely gardens. We were not warned that our unit would be an attic one with quite a few steps. For 81-year-old couple it cause a couple of falls. In the evening coming back from dinner, the walkways were insufficiently provided with clear railings. Finally, the very soft pillows were not conducive to good sleep. Yes, we could have brought our own pillows - if we had been warned.

Unfortunately you did not read that the apartment that you booked had stairs. At the time the other apartment was available, so you deliberately made that choice. Railings are everywhere, on the deck, up the stairs, if you have mobility problems as you do have. It is better now for you to choose disabled accommodation. Pillows: There are a variety of them, so you could choose another one. , The apartment is not in an attic, it is just a short flight of stairs. However you were unable to cope with two stairs, or a short walk. When asked would you like to go into the other apartment without any stairs, you said no you wanted the beautiful blue apartment. Never mind glad you loved that gorgeous apartment Warm wishes Andrea & Keith Dalfruin owners and hosts.

Dalfruin is a wonderfully relaxing and beautiful place to stay. The hosts are exceptionally friendly and the rooms are tastefully decorated, spacious and very comfortable. Little touches such as sweets, fruit, pod coffee and some port for a nightcap were much appreciated. The range of foods for breakfast in your own room was also excellent. A highly recommended place to stay.
