“A little gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2011

MIllawa Muscat on the main snow road outside of Millawa looks very exposed from the road and in need of r a few shade trees over the accommodation, but one you are there its all top quality, from the inviting greeting of the owners Peter & Denise who genuinely will accommodate you from a great cooked breakfast of what you design from their menu , to a special dinner if requested. The rooms were good sized with great Kings sized beds and . It is about 20 minutes walk into Milawa and 5 minutes further to Brown Brothers winery, and Peter even offered to drive us.

Room Tip: Units 3 & 5 come with a spa and unit 1 is designed for those with wheel chair needs

Absolutely lovely self contained units with excellent hosts. Peter and Denise can be as helpful as you require, whilst being completely uninvasive.

The accommodation, though described as a B&B, is a number of simple, clean, self-contained units, with the ability to park right next to your door. You can choose to have a lovely spa bath, or a room without. Plush king size beds make for a wonderful sleep and the seperate sitting room with views of the paddocks and mountains makes for a lovely resting place.

With so much to do in such a close distance, this is a perfect place to stay in a lovely, quiet country town. Brown Brothers vineyard (along with many others) are within a 2 mintue drive, as is the cheese factory, walkthrough apiaries and mustard shop.

Only negative was the expense of breakfast; an extra $50 per night is added to the room charge. Peter is a well known caterer in the area and I'm sure it would be absolutely delectable, but at such a high cost, we couldn't see the value.

Overall a delightful stay, highly recommended and no doubt we will be back again!

We've done this area numerous times and all I can say is shhh. Don't let everyone know that Peter does an amazing breakfast, the rooms are huge and spotlessly clean with parking right beside your door and that you feel welcome and relaxed from the time you arrive.

Nitty Gritty...huge cottage style accom with sitting room and separate bedroom, bathroom and toilet. Verandah with views over vineyards and cow paddocks ideal to watch the sunset or rise. Comfy king bed. Microwave for desperate self catering, small bar fridge and wineries cafes etc no more than 2km away

Negatives...ummmmmm...ahhhhh..maybe you need a bit more benchtop space in the micro stove area.....no not unless its easter and you deicide you should try to selfcater
