Charming room, spotlessly clean, with a comfy bed. Thoughtful touches like bottled water and chocolate snacks in the fridge in the room. The included breakfast was simple but delicious and beautifully presented, perfectly cooked eggs, hot toast, real butter and lovely fresh fruit salad and juice. The owners were friendly but unobtrusive. They obviously work hard to maintain such professional... More

We spent 1 night staying in this property. The room and en suite was beautifully presented and clean. (I don't agree with a previous comment about the room being basic - can't imagine what else could have been put in the room). There was tea/coffee, a bar fridge with water and even some biscuits. Plenty of toiletries in the bathroom.... More

Stayed here for one night and while the room and bathroom were clean and tidy, it felt very basic. I love staying at B&B's and while this was fine for one night, I felt the room could have more personal touches to make it a bit more romantic. The house was nice from what we saw and the cooked breakfast... More

I booked Johnstone's on Oxley purely based on past Trip Advisor reviews & I was not disappointed. Ken meet me on arrival, showed me around & explained... More

Recently stayed here with my partner for one night. Bedrooms are all upstairs of this old converted Queenslander home. Very welcoming owners and we only booked 15min before our arrival. We were the only guests so not sure how noise would travel with others present. We stayed in Room 1 which has the bath with spa jets. Whilst not overly... More

Wanted to stay somewhere with a little more soul than a motel. You have it with Johnstone's. I stayed in Room 4 which is in the rear of the property. All of the rooms (4) are on the top floor so 2 flights of steps need to be considered for those with knee problems, particularly as you will presumably be... More

Stayed here for one night in October 2012. Booked Room 1 - which has the spa. $135.00 - booked through the property website. Friendly reception from Ken upon arrival. Took us on a quick tour and showed us where to park the car (in enclosed front yard). Room 1 is upstairs overlooking the main road but we did not have... More

Can't say enough about the Johnstone's place... Great rooms nicely decorated, WiFi for free, great bed, wonderful hosts, excellent location, delicious breakfast, and a very low price. It is where I will always stay when I visit from now on.
