“Well appointed house - wonderful host”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2012

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we hope to return. The house was well equipped and very comfortable. Kathy, our host was terrific - the breakfast pack was more than generous. The house is in a leafy and quiet location. Robyn C

We stayed at Ashbourne house for a month on a corporate let arranged by my husbands company. Sadly it was not a happy experience for us and we cut our stay short and found alternative accomodation. We found Ashbourne house dark and stuffy. There are no insect nets on the windows which means you have to have the windows closed much of the time and all the glass is frosted so you cannot see out.

The interior is furnished with a large amount of the owners personal knick-knacks, lace doilies, ornate cushions and books, which I was informed were very expensive. Not ideal with 2 children under 5! When we arrived, I had to spend a long time de cluttering to avoid acidents. Kathy made regular gardening visits and was not happy with the children playing in the garden.

Overall, I would say if you have children give Ashbourne House a big miss as ours were not made to feel at all welcome.

My family and I stayed at Ashbourne House for 2 weeks (Dec 2011). It was home away from home, in that, the beds were cosy, a fully equipped kitchen where many meals were prepared and laundry facilities which comes in handy with a toddler.
Our host Kathy made us feel very welcomed and I enjoyed our "morning chats".
We will be returning to Brisbane on a yearly basis and we will most definitely be staying at Ashbourne House again. I highly recommend it

From the fresh cut flowers to the chocolates and Kathy's beautiful bircher muesli at breakfast, you will feel spoilt and relaxed at Ashbourne House. Utterly devine bedding, a fully functional kitchen and peaceful verandah to relax on and indulge in afternoon teas and Kathys wonderful breakfast. A great combination of selfcatering/catered accomodation.

I stayed at Ashbourne House with my family in August 2011 and received a very warm treatment from our host Kathy. After our long flight from Germany, we could finally relax in this beautifully furbished B&B and enjoyed the rich home-made breakfast every morning. If we come back to Brisbane, we will definitely stay here again.
