We had driven up overnight from Sydney and arrived at 5:00pm the next afternoon. It was unseasonally hot in Scarborough when we arrived and the room took some two to three hours to cool down with the aircon going strong. We did speak with lovely owners, Ken and Evelyn Johnstone about this. They took it onboard and agreed that if... More

last night in oz we spent near friends at this b&b. arrived and were greated at reception, went to our room which was quaint (it has a more antique homely feel, which might not suit all, you feel like you are in a home) and larger than i thought it would be - room 4, there was a little alcove...

I stayed here for 4 nights and love it. My friendly hosts have succeeded in creating a home away from home. I had a few parcels delivered prior to my arrival and they were all arranged for and placed in my room. Towels and bottled water were all prepared for. I look forward to waking up every morning with a... More

We stayed in Room 1 - The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom has a bath (so good after a hard day.) First place I have ever stayed that had make-up pads to remove make-up. The décor is very old fashioned with lots of nick knacks. The managers are very friendly and helpful. Small fridge in the room and... More

Stayed here as I was attending a wedding nearby. A lovely room for me with all you need including ensuites to all rooms (Room 1 has a spa). Hosts were wonderful and the included breakfast fitted the bill too. Had the best sleep for ages. Thanks!!!

I recently had an extended stay at this B&B. What a find in Scarborough. One of the best, anywhere. An excellent B&B & very gracious hosts. When I'm in the area again, this is where I will stay, providing there is a vacancy.

We stayed for one night in room 4. Having never stayed at a B&B before we didn't know what to expect, but we were pleasantly surprised. The rooms are nicely decorated and very homely. Our room had a queen bed, TV and was airconditioned. It was located at the back of the house so we didn't experience any road noise... More

This B&B is comfortable with friendly hosts. We are both disabled and preferred to have downstairs accommodation so were a bit shocked when we realised we had to take heavy suitcases up a fairly big flight of stairs, but our hostess came and helped us with all that. The rooms are beautifully appointed and the whole upper level had a... More

It is not often you have the opportunity to stay in a bed and breakfast motel in your own city, but that happened when we recently attended a friend's significant birthday on the far side of town. Johnstone's on Oxley is a custom built B&B. The friendly hosts Ken and Evelyn have given thought to almost every aspect of the... More
