Having stayed in dozens of Blue Mtns B&Bs in the past 15 years how refreshing it was to stay in this cosy establishment with host Danielle. One thing you must get right in the mountains is the heating. At Woodford of Leura this is partly provided by a log fire in the lounge room which is concientiously tended by Danielle and creates an inviting atmosphere for guests. Previous experiences with open fires were that they were lit and neglected which just disappoints.
Throughout our 4 day stay, we were treated to homemade cakes daily, delicious apple and currant pancakes for breakfast and a lovely bottle of champagne as it was our anniversary. Our room was spotlessly clean as was the entire home with a good selection of reading matter and DVDs for wet weather. Conversations with other guests as well as our host were delightful and the selection of music playing added ambience in this homely enviroment. We stayed in the garden suite with verandah attached - I did find the bed a little uncomfortable(a bit lumpy) although my husband had no complaints. A memorable stay.
