We recently visited Broken Hill and stayed in Kookaburra Cottage which had everything we needed. Barb, owner, gave us a basket of goodies when we arrived - eggs, butter, bread, milk and packets of small cereal which was much appreciated. The cottage was set up with everything we needed including various condiments in the kitchen and shampoo in the bathroom,... More

From the moment the door was opened to welcome us to The Callie, by our friendly host Hugh, we were thrilled that we had selected The Caledonian for our 5 night stay in Broken Hill. Our twin room was warm, quiet and conveniently positioned across from the bathroom. The beds was so comfortable and the linen crispy clean. Hugh and... More

In early July, we stayed 3 nights at the Callie. It was for my wife and I, our first visit to Broken Hill and we were very impressed with what the city has to offer. So much to see and do, from the art activities to a very nice golf course. However, this review is about the Callie B&B. Our... More

We were in town for a special family birthday and my aunt was staying here. We thought we would join her for breakfast one morning as it sounded so quaint. What a warm welcome and beautiful home cooked hearty breakfast. I particularly enjoyed the home made marmalade and perfectly made cappuccino. We felt so welcome and settled in around the... More

Thanks Sharon T for your positive review - The long breakfast table is a convivial place to be. There is a benefit in being able to supply home made fare - particularly if you like marmalades - the lime marmalade has a real citrus zing!!!! When you get positive feed back it is so rewarding and inspires us to try... More

My husband and I were welcomed warmly by Hugh when we arrived. We stayed two nights in the garden room. We found the room a bit chilly, with quite a draft coming from the window. We were nice and cozy at night though, thanks to the electric blanket! The room was not spotless, but clean. The included Australian breakfast was... More

Thanks Johanna for your review - sorry you found the room chilly (It is winter in Broken Hill) but the easy way to fix that is to close the window and turn the reverse cycle air conditioning unit on!!

What a delightful cottage in what I would call a lovely street for Broken Hill. The check in was at Caledonian B&B, which was a very easy experience. We found the cottage with a well equipped kitchen including some breakfast provisions and an honour system if you wanted any drinks from the fridge. The bedrooms were well appointed and very...

Lovely room and public facilities in a restored old pub. The breakfast provided is fruit, a selection of cereals, yoghurt and a selection of breads for toast, tea and coffee. A cooked breakfast is available for an additional (reasonable) charge. I would have liked muesli for breakfast and suspect it would have been provided had I asked, but that is... More

Went on a whirlwind adventure in search for the original Fury Road, what i found was one of the best B&B experiences I've ever had.

This old hotel was operating before the 1900's and you can feel the pace of miners coming and going as their shifts end. The old stone work shows the labour that went into building this. Pause and look around you to see and almost hear what was happening around you and as people walked past. We had a twin bedroom... More
