We've just stayed four nights here at the beginning of our Australian adventure. Jim & Brandy were hosting us and their gracious and generous help in acclimating us to the city made for a wonderful visit. The accommodations are first rate, the breakfasts tasty served to us in cheerful setting. Would stay here again with pleasure! Walkable to great restaurants... More

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

Our first stay at Fern Cottage was serendipity - a punt after a Google search for a B&B in Brisbane. But not so our second and third stay – we wanted to go back! Despite not being obvious from the road, this little B&B is a gem; a secret that you want to share. Geoff & Mary really want you... More

We were here for only 2 nights and how we wished we were there for more days! The rooms are nicely decorated and are very clean. The bed is very comfy too and we had a good night sleep. We had our own private bathroom which was spotless and well equipped. Mary and Geoff were very helpful and gave us... More
