Mick went out of his way to be helpful and he was very well informed about the attractions in the area. He recommended Hunters for dinner and phoned them for us to make a booking. He suggested various things we could see or do - all proved to be worth seeing. Thank you, Mick! The room was well equipped and... More

I booked us in for a one night stay on June 13th. I'd made the booking last January using Booking.com. We arrived just after 3pm and as our voucher said check-in was from 2pm we went to the guesthouse. We rang the door bell several times but no one came. We headed back up the road to the nearby pub...

Dear Liz I hope we can get to the bottom of this problem and find an answer for all our sakes. You do seem to some extent to be blaming Michael and myself about appalling management because Booking.com did not offer you a refund as they told you they would. To explain things from our side, we always ask our... More

Myself and a friend recently stayed at The Old Coach House, just outside the picturesque village of Avoca and close to the Meeting of the Waters, a beautiful riverside pub/bar. It really was the most enjoyable experience of staying in a B&B I can recall. The rooms themselves were comfortable and very clean and tidy. The house was full of... More

Chose this B&B for location, history, price, the property photos, and the positive comments I'd read. Thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay. Completely agree with every nice thing said here. Location was perfect; walking distance to Meeting of the Waters, and just a few kilometers from Avoca. Built in 1840, the House is historic, the owners continuing its role as a... More

The Old Coach House is beautiful. It is full of character, in keeping with the fact that it was built in the eighteenth century. The downstairs public rooms - hallway, dining room and guest lounge - feel both cosy and elegant. It is a real pleasure to see a historic building of character so well looked after. And it was...

Great: The location, the room, the view, the cleanliness, the breakfast, the value. We enjoyed our stay enormously and would definitely return. We usually stay in hotels but found this to be much better value and the owners made every effort to make sure everyone was comfortable and had everything they needed. Would have been nice to see more of... More

Decided to drive and see a bit of the East coast. Having travelled over the mountains and arrived at The Old Coach House, there was a warm welcome by Barbara. They were painting the interior and freshening it up for the season ahead. My room was pretty and clean with tea/coffee facilities, flat screen and wifi. I had asked for... More
