We loved every moment of our stay with Hugh and Barb, they were a delightful couple who could not do enough for us, we felt very comfortable in their home and our rooms were lovely. Breakfast was great and Hugh was most informative about Broken Hill and surrounds, giving us helpful hints on what to visit and where to go... More

I spent a very pleasant four nights at the Cally when I explored Outback NSW. The whole experience was excellent, from Hugh meeting me at the airport on my arrival (and giving me a guided tour of BH) to dropping me off for my (very early) flight back home. My room (the Garden room) was lovely, with amenities that wouldn't... More

Hugh and Barb both welcoming guests; stayed for 5 nights and could easily have stayed longer. Lovely people, lovely house and lovely breakfast. Was met at station and given tour of Broken Hill by Barb and Hugh was also kind enough to drive me out to the sculptures one evening as I had no transport. Both bent over backwards to... More

We have been anticipating and somewhat dreading this review. Reviews are read by potential customers and it is vital that we respond in such a manner that we not deter future guests. Only once in fourteen years have we found it necessary to evict any of our guests. These were the guests from Hell!! You will note that Usek Bochnia... More

A lovely place to stay. The quick tour of Broken Hill on pick up from the station was very useful to get our bearings. Barb and Hugh we were very welcoming. The station pick up and airport drop offs were much appreciated. The Cally is easy walking distance from town centre. Very clean and comfortable. Loved Hugh's coffee, Anzac biccies... More

My mum and I stayed at the Caledonian B&B on our way to Adelaide. Although we travelled in summer, we hit some lovely, comfortable weather in Broken Hill. On our arrival at the Callie we were met with a most welcoming smile and a great cup of coffee or hot chocolate in my case. We had booked the twin room... More

Once again, Hugh and Barb made my business trip to the Hill more like a holiday. The sheets really DO smell of sunshine and the hospitality is as warm. I always make a point of wallowing in one of their fabulous deep old-fashioned baths whenever I stay at the Cally. Thanks once again, Hugh and Barb for providing a haven... More

I spent two nights at the Caledonian. It was a great base to explore Broken Hill and Silverton and the accomodation was comfortable and clean. It was close enough to the city centre to be able to stroll to a restaurant in five minutes but set on a quiet corner. Hugh was a great host with lots of local knowledge... More

Having grown up in Broken Hill I would stay with my parents on return visits, but now that my parents have died there is no home to stay at. The Caledonian has become my home in Broken Hill when I now make return visits there as the owners make you feel like a very welcome member of the family. I... More
