Mary's place is beautiful! We stayed for one evening as a stop over on our way north. We booked this as we were travelling with our dog and Mary is welcoming of well behaved pets. We were the only guests on the night and enjoyed a great night's sleep in a beautiful comfortable bed. Her house is beautifully furnished and... More

I booked out Mary's place for myself and my bridal party to stay in the night before my wedding. I picked Mary's place because I knew its beautiful decor would make a lovely backdrop for my photos and I liked the idea of someone cooking us a big breakfast to start the day. Mary's Place exceeded my expectations in all... More

I loved every minute of my 2 nights at Mary's B&B. What delightful hospitality and took me back to my childhood with the high ceilings and bay windows. The décor throughout the house and bedroom absolutely stunning, bed was so comfortable and just felt like staying there for longer. Not to mention the cooked breakfast - eggs fresh from the... More

Great Old Time Hospitality..Wonderful Old Fashioned Decor...Had an overnight stay... Bed was very comfortable and felt very much at home there...Very nice homely atmosphere right down to the cooked breakfast with fresh eggs from Mary's own chickens...East to find and right in the heart of Ipswich ... Will definitely return !!

Fluffy pillows, nice sheets and home made muesli are special touches that make this a cut above your basic motel unit. At the top of the hill, it's a short walk to town and nicely elevated for sunshine. There's a small garden, chickens and a front porch for beer o'clock. Mary pays careful attention to make sure bathroom is spotless... More

I chose Mary's place as an overnight stay for business. From the welcome by Mary, to the wonderful Australian colonial decor - reminiscent of a grand homestead - to the friendly cat, the comfy bed and the wonderful cooked breakfast, I felt like I was back at grandma's place. And let's face it, we all know how welcome grandma makes... More

What a little gem! Mary was absolutely delightful, good old fashioned service. The beds were extremely comfortable, so much so we wish we could have brought them home with us. Best night sleeps ever. All the bedrooms were decorated beautifully, there was a claw bath (with shower) for those who wish to indulge; there was also a separate shower room... More

Take a step back into the early part of last century when you pass through the door of the front verandah ! This old queensland home has a genuine antique ambience about it that makes you feel special. Mary's personal touch can be seen everywhere you look. She has left nothing to chance and keeps everything so tidy and elegant.... More
