Your home away from home. From the moment we walked in, it instantly felt like 'our home' Tim and Rachel made us feel so welcome, it felt like we were visiting family. Forget the boring hotels, The Collingwood is by far the best place we've stayed in. Ps the breakfast is to die for!! Will definitely return- thank you

I had high expectations from other views, there were met and exceeded. The owners are very professional and welcoming. They know how to run a top notch B&B. A welcoming chilled bottle of sparkling wine on the verandah after a long drive was a great welcome. Breakfast provides a great choice in lovely surroundings. The rooms are amazing, no expense...

Many thanks 'trip advisor' for directing us to this little gem of home comforts in Bris-vegas. The rooms are better than many boutique hotels, the welcome is five star with sprinkle of old friend and your hosts Tim and Rachel are those rare hosts who actually understand the concept of a service industry and delight in enhancing your visit.

The Collingwood is a purpose built B&B that ticks all the boxes - tastefully decorated rooms with ensuites and private balconies, beautiful breakfasts, very convenient location and exceptional hosts who do everything possible (without being intrusive) to ensure you enjoy your stay. We'll definitely be going back next time we're in Brisbane!

Being b&b owners ourselves we know just who difficult it can be running one. Tim and Rachel do a superb job, exceptionally clean and well appointed room and within walking distance of the city centre what more could you want. Only had breakfast once during our 2 day stay in Brisbane,as our flight for NZ was early the next morning,... More

This is a classy and sumptuous B&B. the owners are delightful, you feel like you are friends being welcomed to their home. I wish I'd found it earlier, rather than stay in sterile hotels. It was exceptionally clean, comfortable and had an upmarket Hampton's" decor. Maybe I shouldn't write this review, because selfishly, I want to make sure it's not... More

Tim & Rachel were perfect hosts on our 3-night stay. We enjoyed the friendly conversation while we tucked into a delicious breakfast each morning. A great way to start the day. It is a convenient location - close to a great choice of restaurants, cafes & interesting shops. With Rachel's help we became familiar with the local public transport -... More

Collingwood is a superb B&B which is conveniently situated in Paddington. Tim & Rachel looked after us as if we were Mystery Guests they were keen to impress. The place is beautifully decorated, spotless, and with comfortable bed, quality breakfast and Tim's genuine enthusiasm to tell you everything you need to know about the buses, the excellent free CityHopper ferry,...
