I had a lovely first time in Broken Hill and a lot of this was attributed to my stay at the Caledonian B&B. The rooms were lovely and warm and the place had such charm and comfort. Hugh, the owner, was so accommodating, friendly, passionate and full of knowledge about the town and its history. Plus he makes a damn... More

Warm, friendly and comfortable- just like staying in a friend 's home. The owner Hugh was very accommodating , nothing was too much trouble. He was available if needed for interesting chats and endless information, but was not "in your face". He welcomed my daughter as a visitor, and even invited her to join us for breakfast. You were made... More

My daughter and I had the pleasure of staying at The Cally for two nights in July 2014. If you want a comfortable bed, clean amenities, lovely home cooked food and very interesting hosts this is a must for any traveller. Thank you Hugh for sharing your knowledge with us. We also love Pierre. Sara & Zoe.

Lounge room was cold, heating had to be turned on manually. First in experienced a cold room. Seating in lounge was not at all comfortable with an old saggy couch that needs replacing. An Aussie continental breakfast was provided and for the accommodation price we would have expected a cooked breakfast. This was available for an extra cost. We were... More

Barb says - I’m sooo glad I wasn’t here when this guest stayed. I was in Brisbane after a death in the family and Hugh had to manage for a week by himself and, going by the other guests comments who stayed around the same time, and submitted reviews to TripAdvisor, he did a wonderful job. I could never imagine... More

Once again I stayed for 4 nights at the Cally, this time with my husband and elderly father. The experience was delightful, with every effort made by Barb and Hugh to welcome us. I stay at the Cally regularly for my work, but this was a special time. My father needed care and attention, and every need was met for... More

Thank you Liz for your comprehensive review - you have managed to get heaps of important information in to just a few words.

Just had a wonderful time in Broken Hill and spent 8 nights with Barb and Hugh at The Caledonian - felt like a home away from home and they went out of their way to make our stay memorable and nothing was too much trouble..

Only the nicest people come and stay with us - aren't we lucky. Our guests are related to the discoverers of the opal fields at Whitecliffs and that made their company really interesting. Yvonne and partner came on the train on a Monday and left the following Tuesday and the railways subsidizes the fare. We learn so much when listen... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Caledonian Hotel was built in about 1885 and was granted a liquor license in April of 1898. It ceased to trade as an hotel in November of 1999 and the license was transferred to Sydney just in time for the Olympic Games. Barb has transformed the heritage listed building into the best Accommodation facility in Broken Hill according to the many reviews submitted by people such as yourself. So 'Thank You' When you come and stay with us! We will ensure you have the best experience possible because we strive to maintain the high standard we have set for ourselves. Don't forget to mention Trip Advisor when you book in - we have a special deal for you. Cheers Hugh & Barb ... more   less
