My husband and I along with another couple stayed four nights at the Abbey of the Roses last week and we had the most wonderful time.
The Abbey is being lovingly refurbished and restored by its new owners with the help of Bazil the cat. The building is heritage listed and has some beautiful furnishings and antiques.
Our hosts were absolutely delightful and nothing was too much trouble. They really went the extra mile for us and even Bazil was friendly and made us feel welcome. Our cooked breakfast each morning, our special evening dinner and our devonshire morning tea were all excellent and Mark and Sonia do an incredible job of catering and hosting. It is easy to see and feel the passion and enthusiasm they have for their venture and be inspired by their excitement.
We enjoyed day trips around the area and then came 'home' to our borrowed DVD's each evening as the perfect means of relaxation before dozing off to sleep in our cozy beds.
Mark gave us a very interesting and enthusiastic tour of the Abbey and its history. So after such a lovely time of being spoilt and cared for, we were sorry when the week finished and it was time for us to leave.
We can certainly recommend a stay at the Abbey of the Roses and look forward to another visit there some time.
Thank you for being such wonderful hosts.
