The room was very well maintained, clean and well set out. The attention to detail with the breakfast basket was amazing. A wonderful experience.

Gorgeous little B&B in the heart of the Dandenongs

Was great to return to Mary Cards Coach House. We stayed in the Baltic room, which has a gas heater and spa bath to take away the chill of the mountain air.

Location, comfort, cosy

Pros: The host was very friendly and accommodating, the feel of the place was welcoming, the private balcony, the gardens were lovely, breakfast delicious
Cons: Were there on two very hot nights, the ceiling fan didn't reduce the temperature - air conditioner would, Screens on doors would allow greater airflow
Location: 100 metres to shops and pubs, restaurants, easy drive to Olinda Falls, Kallista, gardens and arboretum, Mt Dandenong lookout and towns
We can highly recommend this accommodation, the room was very cosy, the breakfast excellent and the gardens beautiful. It was easy walking to restaurants and close to much of the Dandenongs. We had a very relaxing time and felt fully recharged from our stay. Screens on the doors would allow for greater airflow

Our Stay

We were looking for a b&b close by for the weekend and found Mary Cards to be most accomodating. Close to eateries and attractions and secluded enough to be intimate....would recommend this to anyone

Unpleasant experience.

Room was clean however a lot of codwebs, mould on the bath ect. Staff made me feel uncomfortable for having our newborn with us, asked if he cried much due to other guests. No facilities or gardens to view on the property which was disappointing. Lounge room was small so we couldn't lay on the couch together watching movies etc. incould hear the other guest upstairs all night so I didn't sleep that well. Wouldn't stay again unfortunately.

Nice hotel close to restaurants

Very nice accommodation within easy walking distance to local restaurants. We stayed in Mary's Room which was very comfortable with a 4 posted bed and very quiet as it was situated away from the main road. The cook-it-yourself breakfast was plentiful and very tasty.

Perfect for a Babymoon!

Thank you Paula. We had a lovely stay at Mary Cards. It was very cosy and warm with yummy breakfast provided. I don't think the pictures on here do it justice. Would highly recommend.
