Never having stayed at a B & B before, this 1st time experience was great. Chris and Luba are wonderful hosts.
The local 4 legged residents were most welcoming also. Even the curious Possums in the neighbours tree box. Our very large room was very well presented, very comfortable, with both heating and cooling as required and a lovely large bathroom.
The street was so quiet it was a delight. Our room had lovely views out to the garden and gorgeous tree lined quiet street, The entry to our room has lovely deck with table and chairs where the sun filtered through the large Oak and Cape Lilac in the morning where we sat with a coffee and watch the wildlife feed and play. A hot breakfast with a lovely selection of fruit was a great start to the days adventures. The breakfast menu would satisfy most. We were lucky enough to score some of the warmest sunny autumn days Canberra could offer. We couldn't believe how close everything was, by car 15- 20minutes to most major tourist sites around Canberra. Including some great cafes and restaurants 5 minutes down the road. Chris and Luba were a great information source for everything Canberra!
