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

Great greeting by Hugh and Bard on arrival, made you feel welcome and at home. Lots of great advice on places to see and recommendations for restaurants, all within walking distance. Early starts meant an early breakfast. Hugh was up to the challenge to create the perfect cooked meal to keep us going for the day :) Definitely be back... More

My Daughter and I stayed in the Blue Room at the Cally for three peaceful nights. Hugh and Barb are so friendly, and their service exemplary. It was my first holiday in 30 years and I couldn't have asked for a better 'home away from home' to come back to after the enjoyment (and exhaustion) of the day trips we... More
