Upon arrival the owner threatened to kick us out if we were loud, before we even entered! He then have us a sound warning at 8.30pm on a Saturday night for simply talking too loudly! And then re warned us literally 2 mins later. Avoid this place!

I stayed at Wombats B & B a few days ago because I didn't want to stay in busy Sydney. It didn't take long to get there from Sydney and although I arrived frazzled and late at night Laurie the owner was very welcoming. When he saw how worn out I looked he carried my bags in and made me... More

We arrived exhausted after a long flight/drive ....Before showing us to our room, Laurie, the owner insisted on taking our credit card and drivers licence again and writing down the details because, he said, to check we hadn't stolen them! Had we a choice, we would have left then, however, our card had been charged when we made the booking... More

COZY BURROWS If you google ‘wombats’, you may get one or two surprises. Apart from information and pictures of an Australian animal known for its ability to arrange cozy burrows, you’ll read about a pop/rock band from Liverpool, England. You might also notice as you scroll around: the Women’s Mountain Bike and Tea Society (WOMBATS) run by Jacquie Phelan in... More

I stayed here back a few years ago while interning at UNSW-Ourimbah. I have to say, I lucked out and had a great group of people staying in other rooms that were also students and the noise level was good for the most part. Cons: The walls are thin, occassionally I would have people stay above me and I could... More

We stayed overnight after a wedding and the room was very neat and clean despite the old furniture. It was a bit of a shock that the bathroom is outside considering when I was told we got an upgrade at the time of booking!We got the family room which opens up to the kitchen but the walls and ceiling is...

The grounds and pool are wonderful. When all the Christmas lights are on at night it is just downright beautiful. Rooms are small but nice and clean. The outside toilet, which considerable is suitable for disable persons, unfortunately can be seen into easily from the outside due to the blinds being too small. The owner, Laurie, is intrusive, made us... More

Bedrooms were ok, though a lot smaller than the pictures showed, all the furniture looked like it was from garage sales or second hand shops, external areas need a major makeover. The owner, Laurie, is the big problem. He is an obsessive compulsive control freak who watches everything you do and comments accordingly. He liked to blame me for anything... More
