This place was really great - it was very ~romantic~ <3 We stayed in the Zebra room and loved it - lovely big claw-foot tub in the room (there is in all rooms from what I could tell from the fire escape floor plan), along with an open fireplace opposite the bed. We were genuinely surprised at how great the... More

We have stayed at the manse a few times now. I couldn't recommend it highly enough. It's just so inviting. The rooms are so beautiful with the most amazing deep claw foot bath tub. And a fire in the room as well as heaters that adds such a cosy feeling. The supplies for breakfast are lovely and more than you... More

Warm, comfortable, quiet and close to shops. We stayed in the yellow room on the first floor which was a big room with high ceilings. Ally made contact with us earlier in the day regarding our check in details. The bath was beautiful, a nice way to start the day. The bed was comfortable and the kitchenette enough for a... More

Of course not everyone likes a claw-foot bath in their room - we found it enchanting. The wood fire was great - with plenty of wood chopped and available. The outdoor spa was hot and enjoyable. You couldnt ask for more in the room - We had the Green room which was great. I loved the views over the township... More

We had a good midweek deal. No signs out front directing to car park, so we hauled our cases up a very steep slope. Garden very neglected and front porch unswept. The solar lights do not come on at night, so unless I turned on the porch light we stumbled in the dark. Rooms pleasant. No shower, only large bath... More

We are disappointed you didn't enjoy your stay at The Manse. Unfortunately the choice and reservation wasn't made by you. I did explain our procedures and the rooms to your family member. You arrived 90mins prior to check in time during school Holidays, so your room wasn't ready. I knew from the scowl on your face, this review would come.... More

This place is very comfortable and has lots of old world charm. The room is well equipped and the view from the zebra room was picture perfect. The township is littered with interesting galleries and cafés.

What a beautiful old place. Stayed on a Monday night and had the whole place to ourselves. We stayed in the "Yellow" room which had a beautiful claw bath which I loved but my partner would have preferred a shower (it's a male thing!) Loved the quirky wooden toilet too. The place has an outdoor spa which was great but... More

I have had the pleasure of staying at the Manse with my fiancé countless times. Every single time we go, it's as if the Manse got better. I will forever be loyal to the place, simply because it never let's us down. To anyone thinking of going to the Manse, a few suggestions; 1) Don't justify it. We often drive... More

We stayed two nights in their green room in Feb 2015. Booked ages ago and emailed them in the last week to confirm our booking but never received a reply. Odd way to run a business. However a phone call confirmed that all was fine and we checked in no problem. Beautiful room, absolutely gorgeous views, quirky little water closet... More
