“Old world charm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012 via mobile

Travelling from Brisbane to Canberra. We decided to see if we could find a nice farm stay - and we found a great one. Hostess, Jenny was welcoming and cooks a lovely hot meal. Bedroom was large, comfy and warm. We walked to the "sawn rocks" - well worth it but only took 25 minutes (not 45 as in the brochure). We would recommend Craigdon to anyone. Also, instead of the Newell highway we went to Warwick, Ingleburn, Texas, Yetman, Warialda. Pleasant drive.

Stayed August 2012, traveled as a couple

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

We only stayed one night on way to Queensland. It was one of the coldest winter nights ever recorded and yet once in our bed we were warm and cosy. The house is set in beautiful, open , gently undulating grasslands. Great to sit, relax and ponder over or get moving and walk the cobwebs away. The room was large and "old country" furnished. Bathroom was clean and user friendly. It was a little off the main highway, 30kms, but certainly worth the detour. If, like us, you do this journey frequently and have stayed at pretty much all the motels/hotels along the various routes from Adelaide to Brisbane, make the change once in a while and stay at a country home like this. You will not regret it.

Room Tip: The food was wonderful, we enjoyed every scrumptious mouthful.

Thank you for such a positive and helpful review. I hope a few will take your advice, choose the road less travelled and enjoy a little more of what the north/ west has to offer. Many thanks and happy travels, JL.

We had a lovely night stay here. A beautiful old house in a tranquil setting. Our party consisted of 4 Adults and 4 children. The accommodation was spacious and comfortable. Everything very clean and attractive. The evening meal was amazing. From the Afternoon drinks on the verandah to breakfast in the morning the whole experience was fabulous and a 10 out of 10.

On route to Craigdon we visited friends who live in the Narrabri district & unaware that we'd already booked into Craigdon they recommended we stay at Craigdon! So we were very pleased that we'd chosen well because if the locals recommend it - it must be good! (When we told them we'd already confirmed our reservation with Jennifer they told us that their daughter's wedding reception had been held there). So by the time we arrived we were expecting Craigdon to be something quite special - and it did not disappoint.

From the genuinely warm welcome by Jennifer, to the delightful spacious rooms, the extra little touches like cold beers & chips on the verandah to watch the sunset & the delicious country cuisine delivered to us in the magnificent dining room ... all made for a very pleasant stay.

Jennifer has obviously worked very hard to restore this quintessential country homestead into a welcoming retreat far away from the hustle of the Newell Highway where travellers can enjoy the bucolic surrounds of the property whilst still being convenient to Narrabri. If anyone reading this wishes to appreciate true country hospitality in a pleasant pastoral environment look no further!

We look forward to returning for a longer stay with my parents so they too can enjoy the ambience of Craigdon.

On a scale of 1 to 10, Craigdon scores 10 without a doubt.
The 20 minute drive from town is no real trouble, and is well rewarded by the beautiful house, lovely location and excellent food and hospitality (including open fires and hot-water bottles).

Craigdon is a grand country house and the quality of the surrounding countryside and spectacular views is enhanced by the excellent fittings and furnishings. That said they only complement the pleasure of being able to relax in first class surroundings; the best aspect is the welcome and attention from the hostess. Low key, uncomplicated attention together with first class dining make Craigdon a must visit location for couples or business groups.

Room Tip: All rooms are attractive and quiet.

Enjoyed our night at craigdon guest house. We were well cared for by Jenny. She looked after all our( husband, 18 month old and myself) needs. Lovely dinner and hearty breakfast. The house is beautifully restored . Hope to visit again and stay for longer.
