We stayed one night in the comfy quiet Yellow room with king size bed. Hugh made us feel home immediately upon arrival. We enjoyed his delicious homemade Anzac cookies and the extensive breakfast. The video of Broken Hill was very informative.Thank you Hugh. Beautiful hospitality and highly recommendable.

I can't tell you how much we enjoyed our 2 nights at the Caledonian. Hugh and Barb were so welcoming and it was clear that their mission was to make everything special for everyone. From the designer coffee brewed individually for each guest to the homemade biscuits-to-go we felt right at home! We thoroughly enjoyed our time there, the wonderful... More

Nice place with lovely people that make you feel at home. Hugh was very friendly and helpful. One can immediately see that the B&B is run with lot of love and sense for detail. We enjoyed our stay and we would stay there any time.

We stayed at one of the rental properties (a couple blocks from the B&B), but still had very friendly service from the owners. The accommodation is old, but clean and comfortable. Imagine staying at a retired professor/artists cottage. All properties are full of books and art done by the owners.

My wife and I met in the back yard of what was referred to as "The Callie" forty two years ago. We went back to celebrate forty years and wanted to stay somewhere that was "Broken Hill" rather than a typical motel. We were pleased to see that The Callie, though no longer a pub lives as a B &...

Good breaky with plenty to eat & Hugh's Anzac cookies was a nice touch with an afternoon coffee/tea. My stay in the Garden Room was quiet very comfortable... More

This is an old pub converted to a B&B. Because of this it's a little squeaky and creaky but this did not bother us at all and it is full of character. The rooms are very nicely done and the hosts are accommodating, helpful and informative. Their mantra seems to be service, service, service and nothing is too much trouble.... More

The Caledonian took by surprise. Welcoming and hospitable, comfy rooms and guest areas (if a little daggy but in the nicest possible way), like-minded fellow travellers always up for good conversation, and a hearty breakfast make you feel you are staying with family. Great value and a great experience. Like family though, you might have to share a bathroom. Fine... More

Hi 82Julieh - Thanks for your review - sometimes I am stuck for words! I trust that 'daggy in the nicest way' should be interpreted as "fantastically homely" One of the great benefits of running a B & B is that only the nicest people come and stay - and most of them are up for a chat. We endeavour... More

We spent four nights at the Callie, and were very happy with our choice. Hugh helped us out with information, and took care to understand what we wanted before making recommendations. The collection of interesting DVDs about the Broken Hill area added to our experience. The breakfast and lounge area is relaxed and comfortable, making it easy to interact with... More

Hi RobinT and our lovely TripAdvisor readers - Your review has pretty well nailed the atmosphere we try to create. We like our guests to feel 'at home' and really comfortable. We particularly like the comment "The Callie is cluttered, quirky and brimming with personality." Barb has a natural talent for creating that special ambiance. Thank you, thank you -... More

Very welcoming facility that just feels like a 'home away from home'. The rooms are spacious, spotlessly clean and comfortable. Your welcome from hosts Barb and Hugh is just so sincere you feels as though you have known them for years and are family. They obviously have a love of meeting and dealing with people and this sincerity comes through... More
