Here with 4 couples in mid April 2015 for 3 nights. Hosts provided fantastic dinner Fri night, topped off with sampling of some wonderful fortified wines from around the region. Ordered two hampers for our jaunt around the wineries, they were superb, lots of local produce, great variety, and loads of it. We saved the second hamper for Sunday night... More

We have stayed at Koendidda a couple of times now. As well as being a fantastic place to stay with great hosts in Allan and Karen, it is a central location if you want to go to the Wineries of Rutherglen or going to Beechwood. Would strongly recommend their 3 course home cooked meals!

This is a very special place to stay with a genuine sense of history (and I'm a Brit) and a very tailored service. If you are after a really good mini break this is the place for you. A shortish drive to Beechworth makes it even better. Great food and a truly stunning setting with Alan not able to do... More

Stayed here over the easter weekend and couldn't have asked for anything better. The house is large and beautiful and the grounds are simply breath taking. The hosts Alan and Karen are the most friendly and lovely couple. We stayed in the Pooley suite and felt like royalty. Everything was so comfortable I can't recommend this place high enough. Breakfast... More

Peace and tranquility, drinks on the verandah, breakfast on the terrace, five star dining and perfect hosts. Koendidda provides a perfect breakaway. Alan and Karen are charming, entertaining and very knowledgeable about the area, not to mention the wines in the immediate vicinity, some of which they serve with dinner in their elegant dining room. The whole house is beautifully... More

Stayed just one night in this grand house and took the opportunity to enjoy dinner in the very impressive dining room. Alan and Karen are great hosts and the food was well prepared and presented. We were put into a suite which was quite spacious and comfortable, although the bathroom is getting a bit tired and was quite chilly. One... More

Karen and Alan the hosts were very welcoming and proud of their house. We enjoyed dinner with another couple in the dining room. We could have had dinner in a... More

What a beautiful place. Gorgeous quiet setting .....nothing to hear but the birds and nearby cows. Our hosts were totally accommodating and we had a magnificent home cooked dinner just for the two of us on our second night in the main dining room. It's a beautifully appointed grand homestead with extensive gardens and lawns to wander around. Whether you... More

A group of five couples have for the past 20 years celebrated the arrival of the new year at different B&B's around the state. The aim being that we can enjoy a relaxing time & see the new year in and not have to drive home. This year was at Koendidda. Karen & Alan were terrific hosts, nothing too much... More
