I stayed here recently for 1 night on my own. I have had good and very bad experiences with B&B's in the past so was unsure how this place was going to be. As this was something of a treat for myself I was hoping for good. I was made very welcome when i arrived and given a tour of... More

We stayed here recently on a Friday evening and were given an upgrade to the Bong Bong suite out the back of the property with easy access to the dining room/lounge and courtyard. The Bong Bong suite is very spacious and beautifully furnished with a small kitchenette. The en suite, unfortunately, is a bit on the small side. Very good... More

The best bed and breakfast I have ever been to. A beautiful cottage surrounded by a lovely garden, it is very conveniently located, tucked in a quiet street very close to the centre of Bowral. Once inside however, it is very safe and peaceful and you truly feel very relaxed. The price is very reasonable. The rooms are charming and... More

Stayed here one night with my mum. Its got gorgeous gardens with fun quaint touches - bit bare, and very cold and windy time to visit in August, but would look amazing come late spring. The house itself is also cute and quaint, but could definitely do with an update - not moving away from the period charm, just needs... More

We had 1 night at this Bed and Breakfast and were in the Oxley room in the main house near the front door. The house is quaint and is situated in a lovely garden and it is easy to stroll into town. We found the service lacking during our stay. On arrival the front door was locked and nobody responded... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here during a short break. Staff were friendly, the room was cosy and decked out in a very appropriate old fashioned style given the setting. Cooked breakfast every morning too along with good selection of non-cooked breakfast items. Bed was probably too soft for us but given that we both have specific back problems this... More

Very comfortable, beautifully decorated. Set in lovely grounds (probably even better in spring). The service was friendly but not intrusive. There was a great choice for breakfast. Walking distance to the main street. No complaints at all. We were only in Bowral for one night which was a shame, would have loved to have stayed longer.

Very quiet and peaceful but within easy walking distance of town. The rooms are comfortable and spacious. We were in the Centennial room which is above the garage so there were some stairs to climb (not too many) and the ceiling height was limited at the edges where you were in the eaves. The view from the window down the... More

We travelled to Strathburn Cottage for a friends 40th birthday. Four of us comfortably fit into the very large and spacious Bong Bong suite. The beds were comfy, the layout of the room comfortable. The guest lounge room just across the courtyard was always warm and well stocked with tea, coffee and cakes. We enjoyed some beautiful walks through the... More

Had a great stay over a cold wintery weekend. Bong bong room is 5 star. We had a brilliant breakfast and both Dawn and Robert were nice and unobtrusive hosts. Is near enough to town center and has nice grounds. Would stay there again and will recommend to family and friends.
