Another trip to Orange and another stay at Black Sheep Inn. Helen is a gem and so is the property. Fantastic ambience with all the original pieces but modern day comfort. Love the old Coalbrookdale cast iron fireplace which really pumps out the heat. The focal point is the wool classing table which we gather around for breakfast. Nothing is... More

Stayed here for 3rd time. It has always been great. The standard of service and appearance has not changed. The rooms are very comfortable. Stayed in the middle of winter and enjoyed fireplace, electric blankets and heaters in bathrooms. We were never cold despite the outside temperature dropping to 2 degrees when we were returning from dinner. The Black sheep... More

This is our second trip to Black Sheep Inn, and it was just as wonderful as the first. This is an amazing renovation of a shearing shed, which is done with incredible taste and style. The wool sorting table is just beautiful and Helen is so very very helpful and such a sweetie. We will always stay there, as we... More

I first saw The Black Sheep Inn several years ago when collecting friends and have wanted to stay there ever since. Last year we managed to get into Whispering Moon Cottage for a few days which is run by Helen Napier as well. We had a fabulous time there and then, this year, thanks to a cancellation, we managed to... More

This was our second stay in the Black Sheep Inn and the experience was just as good as the last, if not better. The stylish architectural renovation of an old shearing shed is very impressive and an interesting reminder of the heydays of the wool industry. Breakfast around the former wool sorting table is an absolute treat - a 5... More

If you want an authentic Australian country experience, make sure and reserve a few days at the Black Sheep Inn. It was lovely waking up and making coffee and breakfast in the kitchen, and then sitting out on the patio overlooking the countryside. Black Sheep Inn is in a quiet location, and I slept with the lovely country breeze blowing... More

I remember seeing this place a few years ago, so to find it again on a last minute decision to go to Orange was wonderful. And to be able to have a room at such short notice was also a treat! Helen was prompt in answering my email & booking us in & we were not disappointed by anything at... More

We were going to Orange for a wedding and decided to stay just out of town. It was super to discover the Black Sheep Inn and we stayed in the Whispering Moon Cottage. What a super choice. There were three of us and the two bedrooms and ensuites, as well as the very comfortable relaxing areas, were just perfect. Every... More

My partner and I loved our stay at the Black Sheep Inn. We had a bedroom in the main B&B, and unfortunately could only stay for one night, which was a shame as Helen was so welcoming, and the peaceful setting so beautiful. Unlike others, we found the shared facilities charming. I loved the way Helen and her family have... More

Not much to add to others comments - this is a marvellous place. Beautiful restoration and attentive host. We stayed in the two-bed self-catering cottage with our family, rather than the main B&B. Charming. Simply the best welcome package we've ever seen - beautiful eggs and sausages, and every kitchen condiment imaginable (even Teriyaki sauce!). Helen was an excellent host,... More
