Old world ambience.

An idyllic country hideaway. Beautiful room with all the comfirts. The breakfast room which doubles as a gift shop is an absolute Aladdin's Cave. Breakfast was delicious with teapots of perfectly brewed tea and bowls of freshly stewed fruit. The grounds are reminiscent of an English ciuntry garden complete with pet geese wandering around. The staff are lovely and so friendly and accomodating. Plenty of lovely walks along the Blackwood River and around the township are close at hand. A beautiful place.

wonderful heritage homestead

Pros: Beautiful crockery and glassware. The breakfast experience amongst the Christmas decorations.
What a wonderful surprise waited for us when i booked this B&B at the last minute. Great location in Bridgetown, walking distance from town to shops. To stay at a historic house was an experience. Well equipped house with beautiful interior intact in the shared sitting and dining room. Romantic gardens with old flowering roses, fruit trees and friendly geese. We enjoyed a quiet morning on the deck amongst the roses, listening to the kookaburra's, cockatoos and rosella's and seeing the blue wren in the undergrowth. The biggest surprise was our delicious cooked breakfast served up in the shop... but at a wonderful laid out large oval table surrounded by Christmas decorations! Have already recommended this place to several friends!

Potential to be amazing but...

Pros: Beautiful grounds, interesting retail outlet
Cons: Interaction with guests
Rang to confirm reservation and was abruptly told yes it is fine. No warmth at all. Arrived late and was given the wrong suite. Suite had a dirty toilet. No bubble bath provided for spa. Had requested gluten free bread- next morning at breakfast no bread was provided , no apology , simply said didn't know.

Beautiful room, lovely and cosy.

Pros: The beautiful room, and especially the adjoined living area, cute little kitchen, wood fire, Chesterfield lounge and armchairs to relax in.
Cons: Staff manner.
Beautiful place on the river. Only downfall was a leaky tap in the bathroom that dripped all night and a heater we couldn't have very high due to the awful noise it emitted. Staff were ok, Michelle was friendly the others not so much.
