Excellent place to stay. Wonderful hosts. Accommodation great and beautiful breakfast.
Made it very enjoyable by looking after our dog so that we could out that evening with relatives.
Highly recommended place to stay.

Just stayed two nights at "Must Love Dogs b&b", absolutely lovely stay. Summery 41 degrees outside but lovely and cool inside. Charming hosts, Chris and Charles. The bed was comfortable. Charles cooked us a magnificent English Breakfast day one then his traditional mouth watering pancakes day two. The dogs were welcomed with some treats on arrival. They had as much fun as us. Worn out exploring the local wineries so a quick dip in the pool took care of that. We will be back in winter for another visit. Thanks Chris and Charles.

Room Tip: Both rooms are nice, Chandelier suite bigger but both are big enough.

We stayed for 2 nights over the Australia Day weekend. Parent, Kids, Grandparents & furry friends all had a wonderful stay and really enjoyed the welcoming hospitality of Chris, Charles and their three dogs. A lovely B&B made to feel like a home by its owners.

We stayed in Rutherglen for 2 nights for our honeymoon and couldn't have asked for better hosts than Chris and Charles. The room was terrific (particularly the super comfortable bed!) but the service was even better - Charles' cooked breakfast was incredible and not only did they give us tips for restaurants and wineries in the region, they also shared with us a lot of their life story! Which was great for us as a young married couple to hear their stories about their long happy marriage!

We don't have dogs but highly recommend staying here in any case and we will definitely be back next time we go to Rutherglen.

We had a great stay with Charles and Chris. We were travelling with a 9 week old pup - AyBee - who we had only had for 2 days. AyBee was in sensory overload and, well, there was AN INCIDENT! Water off a duck's back to Chris and Charles. They were unphased by the episode, very understanding and made us feel welcome even after said "incident". It is great to have dog-friendly facilities dotted around Australia but they don't come more dog-centric than Chris and Charles'. Can't recommend their establishment highly enough.

Amazing little holiday yet again with our fur children. Returning for a second time, we had an even better time than the first. Charlie and Chris were lovely hosts and provided us with the best meals ever, from homemade scrumptious pancakes to mouth-watering steaks that melts in your mouth and not to mention topping it all off with a little slice of heaven for dessert. Had an absolutely wonderful time on the wine tour with Charlie whilst Chris looked after our fur children. Then finished the day in the pool watching the pups paddle around. Couldn't have asked for a better holiday. Will definitely be back for a 3rd time!

Great experience right from the point of booking, from speaking on the phone with Chris (our host) who was willing to cater for all requests - To the arrival where there was treats for us and the fur child (which she loved!). Chris walked us through our residence and gave us insight into local information. The inside of our residence had been beautifully restored to its beauty of been a elegant, homely, and luxurious retreat. After having a long drive the bed in the room was amazing to sleep on (spacious and very comfortable) The breakfast's were prepared by Chris's husband Charlie, who was as entertaining as his partner - and besides been a great chef, he was willing to cater to anyone's requests. Our hosts were delighted to entertain our fur child whilst we got to explore the region - on our return to the residence we could tell that our fur child had a wonderful time playing with Charlie and Chris's dogs. We would definitely go back there again and highly recommend it to anyone else looking at staying in the Rutherglen region (with or without your fur child).

Room Tip: We went the chandelier suite, definitely try to book this one if your after a lovely room for a roma...
