Second stay in a month and why, on previous occasions over the past year I decided to stay in a (more expensive) motel is beyond me. Forgive me Catherine.....promise I'll never do it again. Nearby transport, on-street parking, the quietness of inner Brisbane.....a real home away from home. Tasteful suites, space to move, the thoughtful amenities, and the care that... More

We are attracted to authentic and classy accommodation and this place delivers. It's close to the airport (15 min), a block or so away from a river park. It's an 1800's home that has classic design (brass switches old pine floors) but uber new bathroom and a comfy bed. Eating our breakfast on the deck was nice. Catherine and Rob... More

Recently stayed with Catherine and Rob for 2 1/2 weeks in September. The Swan Inn was a like a home away from home! Very comfortable, great location with Kookaburra's to wake you up in the morning and only a short walk from Royal Brisbane Hospital. Catherine and Rob will go out of their way to help, assist and offer assistance.... More

I chose this B+B based on close proximity to what I guessed was Roma Street Rail Station (and my guess turned out to be rail marshalling yards). This address is reasonably close to the CBD and a short pleasant walk to Windsor Rail Station. The downstairs apartment was very much to our liking, being spacious, classy, quiet and with a... More

This was our first stay at b&b. It was a wonderful retreat in the middle of Brisbane. Catherine and Rob were wonderful hosts with a very comfortable bed and nicely appointed rooms. It reminded me of the houses I grew up in. Will definitely stay there again and will look for more b&bs instead of hotels or motels in the... More

We stayed for one night in the apartment on the ground floor. The apartment is perfectly equipped with everything you might need. It was clean (except for a little formicary under one of the bath towels, which wasn't really a problem, though). Catherine, our host, was very friendly and helpful. The location is also quite good, in particular if you... More

I made a booking for a weekend during the Brisbane Festival months in advance. After lengthy conversations with Catherine and viewing the website to ensure the accommodation was suitable for my disabled partner (apparently the garden suite was already booked out to a professor) Catherine gladly took our reservation, in fact told us we would be so happy with the...

Carol, I am absolutely devastated that you felt I didn't care or show any sensitivity or regard for your partner's mobility issues. In our many conversations before your arrival we thoroughly discussed his ability to manoeuvre the flight of stairs to the Verandah Suite. On your assurance he would be very capable of doing so, I took the booking and... More

Such a beautiful, welcoming place! I stayed at the Verandah Suite which is really luxury and comfy - 'Home away from home'. It is quiet, clean, comfy and close to shops and public transport to city. Thanks Catherine and Rob for your hospitality! Def going to stay again next time I'm in Brisbane :-)

We have just spent a delightful weekend at the Swan Inn in the near-city suburb of Windsor. Swan Inn is our accommodation of choice when visiting Brisbane - convenient, quiet, beautiful clean comfortable rooms with everything you could want. Thanks Catherine and Rob for going out of your way to make us feel welcome.

What a beautiful place, we stayed for two nights and wish we could have stayed for more. The host Catherine was a great host and went out of her way to help. The location was perfect, just a little out of Brisbane. Public transport was close by. We stayed at the Verandah Suite, lovely at night time to sit out... More
