I stayed here with family, in the ballroom. This property is not a bed & breakfast. The host leaves very basic continential breakfast provisions in the ballroom kitchen for you to prepare your own breakfast. The ballroom room is very spacious and comfortable and I enjoyed the quite and beautiful outlook into the garden. Good location... within walking distance to... More

We stayed here a couple of years ago in the ballroom and accompanying dining room. Absolutely loved it so when coming to Brisbane again my wife remembered it. However this time we had the Blue Suite. It's very clean but in contrast to the other room quite cramped. Our real gripe was the lack of service one expects from a... More

Such a gorgeous property and great owners, from the spacious room - my tip is the Ballroom, you will be blown away by it - to the thoughtful extras like slippers, cab call service, free wifi and breakfast, this is easily the best value place to stay in Brisbane. There is no hot breakfast and you must call ahead if... More

I had a lovely stay last wednesday night - I was upgraded (free of charge) to the ball room and it was absolutely stunning. The rooms were so beautiful and comfortable and I enjoyed my stay immensely. My only regret is that I couldn't stay longer. Thank you again and you will certainly be seeing me in the future.

I originally booked this trip several months ago, but due to illness I was unable to actually go. The owner was nice enough to let me switch dates, but this is where my good experience ended. Upon arrival I couldn't find the owner to confirm or ask anything, which was quite inconvenient. Then my partner and I were told that... More

Pros: Beautiful room. Exactly what I look for in a B+B. Character, comfort, nice bathroom, spacious, in a beautiful neighbourhood. Close to train. Close to grocery store. It's nice to have the option to prepare your own food when you travel for extended periods. Washer available. Air conditioning available should it be required. Minor points: The litle extras are missing... More

Stayed at this B&B for 5 days from 7-12 April. Location is good for me as I was there visiting my son who is studying in UQ. It is also near the Toowong Village shopping centre. Though it's a B&B but breakfast was not included, neither any breakfast provision given - only a small jug of orange juice in fridge,... More

Michelle the host is lovely and helpful. The place is clean & everything you could wish for is provided. We stayed in the ballroom which was HUGE. Two sisters pizza is recommended for a nice gourmet pizza! Recommended.

I loved this B&B. Very accommodating, friendly people. I stayed here on 3 seperate occasions as I was passing through Brisbane. Not too far a walk from a water taxi location. Need to be self sufficient though as it is out of the city. I would recommend this to anyone that wants a quiet, beautiful B&B!
