December 2014 is your last chance to stay at this highly recommended Bed & Breakfast. After running Country Guesthouse Schonegg for 11 years, the owners, Evelyn and Richard, want a change and at the end of December the property will become home to the Lachlan Macquarie Trust, an internship training program for young adults. After a day in Canberra I... More

A very pleasant quiet location to relax away from the bustle of Canberra. Our hosts were excellent and the breakfast was extremely good. We also had assorted platters for dinner which were excellent. Lovely place to stay and would recomment it.

Evelyn is one of the most amazing host i have ever met, always going beyond, staff were fabulous. Stayed with a friend in September to do Floriard in Canberra and food and wine trail around the area. What can I say, accommodation, food, everything was the best I have experienced in such a long time. My friend couldn't believe I... More

Beautiful place set in a picturesque region. The rooms are quite large and generous with all the nice trimmings but with modern facilities (aka bathroom) too. Maybe better as a romantic getaway since there are cozy touches such as a spa bath in the bathroom with blinds opening to the bedroom. Nice seating lounges in the porch overlooking some fields....

My new wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon in March this year. The hotel is nicely located just outside of the Murrumbateman township and is a short distance from the many wineries that dot the landscape. The owners and staff are extremely friendly and welcoming and the rooms are beautifulyl apointed. We would definitely return to Schonegg and... More

There is a serene simplicity about this delightful retreat which invites you to truly relax. This is a perfect base from which to sample award-winning wines from local growers, see attractions of our nation's capital or explore the historical treasures of local towns like Yass. But we didn't do any of that ... this time. Instead we simply stopped and... More

I have just returned from two nights' stay at Schonegg. I cannot help but feel that some of the Tripadvisor reviews are a little bit over-rated The setting is well off the highway, and miles away from anything much except Murrumbateman township and a few vineyards, but placed in professionally landscaped gardens with a lovely rural outlook. The buildings are... More

My girlfriend and I wanted a romantic weekend away before she had to leave for a few months abroad and we looked into this place based on its reviews, and every good thing said here is true. I was a skeptic thinking there might be something hidden, but no; you get some wine and cheese on arrival, you get bathrobes,... More

Our stay in Murrumbateman was unplanned but what a pleasant and extremely delightful find! Schonegg Guesthouse provides a very relaxing stay with all the small details paid attention. A carafe of wine and plate of cheese upon arrival, a generous European (think German or Swiss, rather than Italian)-style buffet for breakfast, extremely comfortable beds, very pleasant rooms and bathrooms, delightful...
