Stayed one night in the White Room. Spacious and grand old house a short stroll from the centre of town. We had the place to ourselves. Nicely furnished (although the paintwork in our room at least could do a with being freshened up). Lovely home made banana and walnut cake and cookies for guests to help themselves. Delicious. The breakfast... More

Colhurst House is a must if you want to experience what is may have been like to live in a manor house. Beautiful comfy beds, the most amazing breakfasts, lovely themed rooms and beautiful gardens.The host Patty will make you feel very welcomed.

Colhurst House is a lovely property with a large, quiet garden in a convenient, walk to the cafes, suburban location. The breakfasts were something to look forward to, the bathroom was brilliant, the decor is delightful and the rooms were wonderful, but the real treasure of the place is the hostess, Patty. Patty made us feel welcome and at home,... More

It is a real treat and privilege to stay in a beautiful home such as Colhurst House. The home (aka the mansion) has been beautifully restored with an eye for detail. The rooms that we stayed in were all large and beautifully appointed. There is a stunning lounge room which is the perfect place to cosy up with a book... More

This accommodation is equisite ♥. Not only beautifully located within a breath of main street but, lovingly cared for (and that was just the guests), and great choice of room. The continental and cooked breakfast was an extraordinary gastronomic experience. All prepared for by Patty, the "chatelaine" of the House. Please try the homemade granola, its ☆☆☆☆☆ . This truly...

Stayed here August 2014. This is a mansion and you know you are staying in one! We were lucky enough to have the whole place to ourselves, basically free run of the house. Great views from the return vehranda, warm rooms, great beds and a wonderful cooked breakfast next morning. Cannot praise this place enough!!

Amazing place!!!! It combines the traditional environment of an old house with all the modern amenities of a great hotel. If you are looking for a romantic place in an uncommon location this is beyond any doubt an excellent option. Even though there is only breakfast available in the house, there are excellent restaurants in the locality that will create... More

Actually, a better home. No way can we afford to have this type of renovated character house. I found a beautiful old cupboard & drawer in the room we stayed. In the foyer, I think we found an old heater (?). There are lots of little things that I found so refreshing - compare to staying in generic hotel/motel. The... More

only stayed one night, but could easily have stayed longer. We booked the green room with separate spa bathroom, easily the best bathroom ive seen in a B&B and only bettered by a hotel costing 4 times the amount. the bed was big and comfortable as was the room. It would be a very romantic spot if we didn't have... More
