“Flawless”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

We selected this B&B for a night away to celebrate our wedding anniversary partly because of the rave reviews it had received on tripadvisor, and it did not disappoint! Robert and Robyn were terrific hosts, who seemed to have that rare gift of being there and we needed them and leaving us alone when we didn't. We had dinner and our room came with a cooked breakfast. Dinner was delicious and moderately priced, the wine cellar stocked with a good variety and once again very moderately priced. Breakfast was plentiful and scrumptious, all meals were served exactly when they were due. The free WiFi actually worked perfectly in all parts of the building, better than any hotel I've have stayed at. The bed was very comfortable, the room was beautifully decorated and the whole B&B had many little extras and special touches - chocolates in the room, complimentary Sherry & Port in the parlour... all just great. The gardens were immaculately maintained and provided a peaceful retreat for a cuppa. As we were packing to leave, I thought to myself; "Is there anything at all Robert and Robyn could have done differently to make our stay more pleasurable?", and the answer was "no". This place really does have everything going for it and our getaway to celebrate our anniversary was memorable for all the right reasons.

Live the "old world" dream, even if it's just for a night, from the moment you walk through the front gate - gorgeous well kept gardens, entry to impress, extravagant living and dining areas, bedrooms & bathrooms for gentry. Hosts are friendly, attentive and can't do enough to make your stay comfortable. Great price. Our choice every time we stay in Albury.

Room Tip: Each room has it's own charm.

Peace and quiet. That it sums it up perfectly.The host, Rob could not have been more helpful. Brought the luggage from the car up to the room, explained how things worked. Even down to the little details, like the small torch in the bedroom drawer next to the bed.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room overlooking the gardens.

We stayed for one night at the Briardale B&B on our way from the Great Ocean Road to Sydney. The home is delightful, full of antiques and old-world charm. Our room was very comfortable and overlooked the lovely gardens where we could see the wild parrots come and feed. Our hot-cooked breakfast was very good. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

Rob was a delightful host. He was welcoming and very helpful, especially in helping us select a place for dinner. We only had one night here, but found it really relaxing. Our suite overlooked the most beautiful garden that keeps host Rob very busy. Birds abounded and after a long drive it was lovely to sit in the garden listening to the sounds of the bush, even though we were in suburbia. The home is abundant with trinkets and history and you could browse rooms forever. A hearty breakfast was served up before we left in the morning and Rob was even more helpful when we left a set of keys behinds. He sent them back to us in the mail without hesitation. I am just sorry we didn't get to meet his wife Robyn. Would thoroughly recommend this property, especially if you are travelling with other couples.

Room Tip: Great stopover, especially for couples travelling together

Recently my husband and I stayed 2 nights at Briardale. This was my first stay in a B&B and I couldn't have been more pleased.

Rob and Robyn were gracious hosts. It felt more like staying at a friends house than in an hotel.

The rooms were spacious, beautifully furnished and had views of the stunning gardens. The bed was extremely comfortable and every possible need had been catered for. Breakfast in the morning was delicious and the dining room was a wonderful place to relax over a hot breakfast. So too was the sitting room. Each night we sat there in front of the fireplace reading, chatting and relaxing.

We will definitely return. In fact I could think of nowhere better to stay in Albury.

The charm of this place is unbelievable it's a total gem hidden away in Albury. The breakfast is delicious and they had a French Press, for a Yank it was sooo much better then then NesCafe I was used to in Oz. Close to everything but you won't want to leave the grounds the garden is so peaceful and perfect. Our only regret is we could only stay one night, would have love to stay a week!
