My wife, Wendy, and I were in town for a conference, and our stay at Fern Cottage was unlike any stay (hotel or B&B) in all of our travels. Both Mary and Geoff were incredibly warm, personable and accommodating. While away to my business meetings, these folks actually drove Wendy to bus stops and helped guide her around Brisbane with...

I recently had a post medical stay with Mary and Geoff, words can not describe how helpful and caring they were towards me. The meals were of an exceptional standard. Mary and Geoff know exactly how to care and encourage you if you are post operative. Their knowledge of the various procedures also assists with answering any questions or concerns... More

Just wanted to say what a great place Fern Cottage is. I would recommended it to anyone visiting Brisbane. Jim and Brandy make wonderful caretakers and were very warm and welcoming. The accommodation is beautiful and would come again and stay in a heart beat.

Breakfast was very nice and the hosts Jim and Brandy were extremely friendly and welcoming. We wouldn't hesitate to go there again... More

Our second stay at this lovely b and b. We arrived as Mary and Geoff were off on holiday and Jim and Brandy took over. Mary could not have chosen better people to look after her b and b - both our visits have coincided with Jim and Brandy's. They are welcoming, fun and have a good knowledge of the... More

I had the great pleasure of staying with Mary and Geoff a few nights ago at Fern Cottage B&B. Delightful, super clean, quiet and overall "five gold stars"! Very convenient to Brisbane city or the lovely Paddington area. The breakfast was perfect and I thoroughly enjoyed pre- and post breakfast chats. I am happy to give Fern Cottage B&B the... More

The hosts, Geoff and Mary, welcome you to their wonderful B&B with open arms. Our stay was just like visiting family. We were in town for our daughters graduation, and they bent over backward to make sure that we had everything we needed. Lending us their beach towels! We had a lovely room at the front of the house with... More
