Everything about Athelstane is quality, the beautiful and tasteful restoration of the house, the serene surroundings, the convenient location, the wonderful hosts, and a fantastic breakfast. We wouldn't stay anywhere else.

Wonderful weekend stay at Athelstane House. So welcoming and friendly and yet very discrete. We felt we were at home. So much better than a hotel and I loved the veranda chairs. Just right for a sundowner glass of wine. Close enough to walk to Allenstown pub for a great steak.

A great Friday night spent at Athelstane House in the deluxe suite. A comfortable bed, good amenities, friendly hosts and a range of breakfast options. My partner had "Marion's world famous scrambled eggs" and I had the fruit platter and burcher muesli. Both delicious. We will have to come back to try the sautéed mushrooms. Too many breakfast options. We... More

If you want to feel like a king once in your life, and surround yourself in a lovely environment, stay here! Clean, quiet, beautifully apointed house & gardens which the hosts love to share with you. Australia's contender for 'the number one B&B in the world'. Great hosts, fabulous breakfast. Stayed over five nights on two occassions. We will be... More

We only stayed for one night in The Athelstane House cause Rockhampton was just a stop-over during our "Aussie-Trip". What an extremly beautiful, tastefully decorated and furnished, super-friendly managed B&B, it was a place to relax, unwind and rest for a very happy evening. The rooms are very pretty furnished, everything is extremly clean and the owners really CARE for... More

Faultless bed and breakfast accommodation. Quite, relaxed, refined and unpretentious. Excellent and comfortable furnishings in the bed room and then common areas. Good breakfast food, served on the terrace outside our room. Handy for the Zoo, Botanical Gardens and Golf Course. Only drawback is the only decent food in walking distance is in a noisy pub which quite detracts from... More

The breakfast was healthy delicious and pretty to the eye, as is every aspect of this lovely old Queenslander. The hosts Stan and Marion care about their guests and make you feel very welcome in their beautiful home.

My husband & I stayed here when we were visiting friends in Rockhampton a couple of weeks ago. The rooms were spacious and very well appointed, lovely wide verandas on which to relax and enjoy breakfast. When the Rockhampton heat gets too much there is also a delightful lounge room or refreshing pool in which to while away the time.... More
