We were definitely taken aback by the charm of this beautiful old house. The hostess Caroline greeted us warmly on arrival with freshly baked muffins and some great local info on where to eat and where to go. The house itself is very well maintained and the rooms generously sized and comfortable. It felt like we had fallen right into... More

We stayed two nights in the Christina room ("The Boudoir") in August 2014. The room was clean and comfortable and in a quiet location. The breakfast was ample and good quality. Hostess Caroline couldn't have been more helpful.

On arrival, we were taken for a tour around the historic house by owner Mike. It was built in 1899. We stayed in the "Christina Room" with a corner spa bath. It was the first room to see the early morning sun through the beautiful bay windows decorated with Laura Ashley curtains and a white brass bed. The reverse cycle... More

A big beautiful historic home, with welcoming hosts and super yummy muffins! We stayed in the FO Henry room, which is massive, has a beautiful 4 poster bed, and some pretty stunning water pressure. The room and the B & B has a relaxed feel, with everything you need effortlessly provided. Carolyn and Mike were great hosts and the breakfast... More

I had accidentally booked the incorrect date and Mike changed our booking without any problems. On arrival we were greeted with a friendly welcome by Caroline and provided with freshly baked raspberry muffins. Caroline gave us comprehensive description of the original owner and the construction of the house as well as providing us with a map and details of the... More

All our pleasure I have to say. The house is beautiful and the story of the Henry's even better so I'm not shy in proudly sharing the story. Glad you like the cookies and am experimenting with flavour today so hope the response is as good. kind regards Carolyn More

We stayed at Ormiston House for 3 nights in July, Tuesday to Friday and were both spoiled and delighted. Carolyn and Mike are the perfect hosts - kind, knowledgeable and attentive - and the house is a historic gem. From the stained glass in the front entrance to the ceiling roses in the dining area and from the very nicely... More

An absolute delight. Beautiful restoration and decore. The owners, Carolyn and Mike, are warm and welcoming and peppered us with treats such as muffins on arrival and to take on the road, all beautifully presented. They have thought of every little detail to make a stay memorable. Probably our best B&B experience ever.

Your review was a wonderful way to start the day and I took your 'like to be a little warmer' comment on board and brought in the expert to over-haul. Really appreciate the heads-up. So nice you enjoyed the stay and in fact, I'm off to make more cookies now! kind regards Carolyn More

Carolyn is very welcoming, friendly and helpful. Thank you for the yummy blueberry muffins. Ormiston house is a beautiful home in a great location with a wonderful history but needs some attention. We stayed in the largest room and we found it quite cool - thank goodness for the electric blankets. The promise of long luxurious showers is not delivered... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and so pleased you did. Guests in 3 of our other rooms held a meeting in the township the last night of your stay, and after that here in the House.
