We enjoyed a wonderful stay at the magnificent Wiss House. Host, Sara, ensures that your stay is comfortable and restful. The home is exceptionally well appointed, with very comfortable and quiet rooms. The bed was magnificent and guaranteed a restful nights sleep. A very yummy breakfast was prepared by Sara, where you also have the opportunity to chat with other... More

Firstly, I'd like to congratulate the consummate host, Sara, on running such a wonderful retreat in Wiss House. Her guest book is brimful of nothing but high praise for 'the House' (more like a grand manor) and for the level of friendly, welcoming, professional service that Sara delivers. What a terrifically restful few days we had taking in Kalbar and... More

Remember these old houses did not have en-suite facilities even in the master room so 3 rooms remain that way but are all in 1st class condition with plenty of room. The 4th letting room is smaller and does have en-suite facilities but it losses the doors to veranda the other rooms have. We had this room for convenience but... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review Raymond and for your very high appraisal of the three course dinners you enjoyed here. The experience of staying in an historical home is unique and all but two pieces of our furniture are antique, some Victorian and most Federation which is in line with the age of the house.... More

Upon ascending the majestic stairs and hallway, my initial inclination to change into a tux for dinner was dispelled by our Hostesses' relaxed and welcoming manner. Sara, the attentive and hard working bon vivant, with a keen eye for federation interior flair gave us the grande tour and ushered us into our stately guest room, resplendent with four poster bed...

Wow what a great B And B so close to home. Sara is a great host and also a great cook. House was full but no problem. Ate by ourselves dinner and lunch. Great pool and spa. Bed comfy and AC was good. Great story around the house as well. Not cheap bu worth it. Check it out.

Quite an historical and beautiful large Queenslander once belonging to wealthy people, but now just a little tired. This experience is touted as luxury, though the room wasn't serviced, towels not changed, no face washer, no security - not that we felt there was a need, necessarily. Better to have it and not need it, than need it and not... More

Dear Russell, We take guest satisfaction very seriously and are disappointed to read your review and we would like to discuss with you your concerns which you express. We don't understand what you mean as "tired" Wiss House has all new bed linen and has had $140,000 spent on renovations in the last 12 months. I personally serviced your room... More

My husband and I stayed here after escaping the city during the crazy G20 weekend. We were welcomed onto a beautiful verandah for some afternoon drinks just outside our room complete with four-poster bed. Our host was very welcoming and informative giving us options for local activities, based on which we enjoyed a day fishing of a boat in the... More

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights using a living social deal. We quite enjoyed our stay as it was quiet, the bed so comfortable and it was a bit of a novelty staying somewhere that is historic and has antiques as furniture too. It was also handy that it was a five minute walk to the local... More

Thankyou so much for your great review. I have just added a new garden room to Wiss House which faces the pool downstairs. The couch is going in today so it will be another chill out space for guests besides all the spaces around the big wide verandahs. Thanks again Sara More

We stayed for 1 night at Wiss House, Kalbar and can only commend the service, room comfort and particularly the home cooked meals. Sara has a background in restaurants and that was very evident when we "ate in" at the dining room for a 3 course dinner. A good centre point for Scenic Rim visits
