“Argyll House - Yearly Visit a Must”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2011

We have come to rely on Cheryl and Jane's hospitality at the charming Argyll House on a yearly basis. This is our fourth year and we continue to enjoy the great service.
The rooms are immaculately clean with electric blankets for the cold evenings on hand.
We have always enjoyed the generous breakfasts available- black pudding, kippers and porridge to choose from along without usual bacon and eggs.
The different room configurations are great, in previous years we have had friends with us where we had two rooms and have shared a bathroom, otherwise we have had a room with an ensuite.

Argyll House is conveniently located, a short walk away from Leura village where there are charming shops and cafes. Next door to house is Jane Stanford's art studio where we have enjoyed admiring her paintings.

We have enjoyed our stays at Argyll House than at most hotels and highly recommend staying at the charming bnb.

Room Tip: Book in advance especially if with friends, the rooms sharing a bathroom would be good in this insta...

This is the place to be in the heart of the Blue Mountains.
We stayed their all 5 of us and was very warmly greeted by Cheryl into the lovely B&B.
Argyle House is truly a remarkable place and takes you back in time with the comfort of a warm log fireplace and period furniture.
Breakfast was excelent and was well catered by Cheryl and her local knowledge of the area.
The stay was for only one night which was a real shame, we have no hesitation on calling in again on our next Blue Mountains trip to Argyle House.

Room Tip: All rooms are great

This is the 4th time we've stayed at the Argyle B&B in Leura and as always, we are never disapointed. The hostess Cheryl is a truly hospitable lady and a dam fine breakfast cook. Something to excite the senses in the morning is her special Whiskey Porridge, a real treat. In addition, a full 5 course breakfast is available if you've got the appetite! There are two suite rooms and 2 rooms with a shared bathroom plus toilet.
The place oozes old world charm and is tastefully decorated in the style of the time in which the house was built. It harkens back to the early heydays of Leura, in the 1920's, when the village was a retreat for Sydney siders wishing to escape the foul miasmas and heat of the summer months for some cool clean mountain air.
Located just a street away from the main shopping strip, the Argyle is a great place to stay when you're coming up to explore the delights of the Blue Mountains.

We wanted to stay at the Woodford of Leura, but they were booked out and they gave us the Argyll's details. They had room for us and we were pleased with the experience overall.

We were charged a reasonable price ($140 AUS) for one night in a king bed with a shared bathroom and a full cooked breakfast. The neighborhood is really lovely and only a couple of minutes walk from the small town and train station.

The town shuts down early so we were really glad that the hostess had DVDs for us to enjoy in the common room in the evening. She has great taste too! One problem we encountered was that we were really cold at night. The room was too cold.

The cooked breakfast was great overall. They serve orange juice that isn't fresh squeezed, but they do serve fresh fruit. The porridge was really wonderful too. The staff is helpful and friendly. The view from the breakfast room is of a lovely garden.

  • Liked — charming location
  • Disliked — cold room at night
