I travel for business regularly. It takes me to all sort of locations with all sorts of accommodation. Additionally, when the client is forking out the readies, one also needs to remain grounded on what the expectations for accommodation should be, particularly in regional and remote locations. So, when you are in a small town and the client is paying,... More

Leslye met us at the door and introduced the pets, and assisted with our luggage. The room was comfortable, clean and had all the facilities we required although only a small TV which didn't bother us as we prefer to read. They even provided a free port night cap which could become habit forming!! The continental breakfast left in the... More

Thanks, Ken. We're happy you enjoyed your stay. I'm a bit worried , however, about sleep quality only being a 3. Did you not sleep well? We usually get raves for our comfy beds. Hope you enjoyed your golf. Next time try Heathcote's excellent course! More

We found the emu inn average. The rooms need a makeover as they look tired and dated, especially for the price charged per night. The fireplace has a lot of dirt and dust. Only saw the owner once when giving us the receipt and she wasn't overally friendly. Now to the continental breakfast, well I wouldn't call it that. The... More

I am sorry that "honeymooners" didn't have a positive experience at Emeu Inn or in the Willow Room for breakfast. As the owner/host, I try to greet customers, but not be around too much. I find Australians, in particular, want their space, so after getting them set up, I leave guests to their own devices and let them know I'm... More

For getting out and enjoying the Heathcote Shiraz region this was the perfect place to call home. We were welcomed in by Leslie on our arrival with her warm and friendly nature. She quickly showed us to our little hideaway and all the added extras that make it all that more special (eg. home made fruit cake, port in the... More

Leslye and Fred are apparently in the throes of renovating/handing over to new management. Well, maybe this is a good thing...perhaps it needs a change! I'd been SO looking forward to dinner at the erstwhile much-raved-about restaurant, but the smell of paint/turpentine fumes, plus assorted cans of paint and drop sheets in the dining room blew away the potential of...

I wasn't surprised by this review as our guests made their feelings well known to us. We are in the process of leasing our restaurant, so the tenants are putting on their mark, including painting. Unfortunately, there was a smell of paint, which we were able to remedy to a point. And maybe we should be closing the business while... More

We stay for a weekend at Emeu Inn every year. Well appointed rooms. We love the front room and the Cottage the best. They are all different. Great hospitality, relaxed, friendly.

Offering a nice enough frontage in the town's main area of the 'longest main street in Australia'; the 5km of High Street in Heathcot, the Emue Inn is an authentic attempt at creating a relevant 21st century B&B. The rooms were fine for our two night stay; unusual in design, but functional with all one could ask for. The shower,... More

I was quite surprised by this guest's comments. The guests were very pleased with their meals, as they noted, however, when they arrived in the restaurant with three bottles of wine and asked if we were BYO, I responded that we didn't do BYO. To my surprise, the expensive bottle of wine (53% alcohol Chinese "wine") was opened and poured.... More

Just spent two nights staying in "The Cottage" - loved the spa. It was wonderful to arrive and enjoy the lovely fruitcake, nibbles, port and sparkling wine awaiting. Lesley was such a wonderful host and nothing was too much trouble. It is a must when staying that you book for dinner. The food was outstanding. Would definitely stay again next... More

We stayed one night at the Inn on a trip through Victoria. I had booked for dinner thinking that it would be a convenient, if probably ordinary, meal and we were very pleasantly surprised. We had the spicy tomato soup, made with bush tomatoes,and an excellent risotto for the first courses and then my husband had emu pie and I... More

Lesley and Fred are great people willing to tend to all of your concerns. They provide a great service and have excellent food in their restaurant. This was by no means an impersonal experience, our hosts were friendly and above all themselves. The dogs roamed about the courtyard which allowed for a great easy-going experience. All the gain of a... More
