Just returned from 3 weeks working in Broken Hill. Traveling solo I feel very priviledged to have stayed at this beautiful, old, warm and friendly bed & breakfast where I was treated like family. Barb and Hugh are very passionate and knowledgeable on Broken Hill history and are always happy to have a chat. The room was great where the... More

My grandparents stayed at the Caledonian for 7 nights - a time they will never forget. Being met at the airport by Barb and being shown around Broken Hill was greatly appreciated. They felt so welcome in Barb and Hugh's home and were thoroughly spoiled. They particularly enjoyed the breakfast including fresh fruit salad from Hugh with videos and information... More

This is the third time we have stayed here and it is still fabulous! The Barb and Hugh are welcoming and helpful and it really feels like a "home away from home". The food is great and the accommodation is quirky but comfortable.

Thanks David F - You first stayed with us not long after we started this seed business nearly 13 years ago - and we have discovered the most challenging thing is to maintain the standards - your review indicates that we are doing OK so a very big THANK YOU - Cheers Hugh and Barb More

During all my many travels in both Australia and overseas, I have managed to avoid Bed & Breakfasts. Living in a strangers house without knowing their "rules" and expectations seemed an unnecessary effort. I made an exception this trip, in order to get a better "feel" for Broken Hill during my short 2 day stay. I only made a few... More

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

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
