“Perfectly lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Stayed the night here while travelling for work, and could not have been comfier!
Lovely suite with private bathroom and shared lounge, kitchen area (I was only one, though).
Friendly reception, bottle of complimentary wine, open fire, continental breakfast and lovely toiletries made for a very pleasant stay!

What a beautiful place stay with the host going out of their way to make you comfortable.
Even arrange garage for classic 356 we were in to put away next door.
Checked out info for Anzac Day dawn service for guests.

This was our second stay at the Post Office B&B. The first time we were alone and had the upstairs area to ourselves, this time we booked the two rooms upstairs and stayed with my parents. Amazing rooms and very spacious living areas, well kitted out and tastefully decorated. Our favourite Australian B&B.

Room Tip: If it is a nice evening the rooftop balcony is a great place for dinner or a drink.

This review is a bit overdue - stayed here in October 2012 - it's really really lovely. So well decorated and really comfortable. We were there on a cold and windy day and it was lovely to come home to. We decided to cook our meal in the kitchen provided and we found this a wonderful change from eating out. Also we had the breakfast hamper which was great and really suited our needs. Rohan is really nice and friendly and so very welcoming. This is the place to stay if you are in the area.

We found this B and B by searching as we travelled. The trip adviser recommendations came up. We rang from Horsham and were pleased there was a room for us. This was a really lovely place to stay and tremendous value at $105 for the night. The little town of St Arnaud was charming with attractive buildings. The B and B is opposite a pretty park. We had a little kitchenette with so many thoughtful inclusions such as oil and condiments to cook with, milk and fruit in the fridge. The sitting room was attractively decorated with an open fire that we didn't need as it was a very hot day. There was an airconditioner that we were grateful for. The bedroom was separate and there was a laundry with a washing machine and dryer and bathroom. It was clean and comfortable and the owners had added many thoughtful touches such as chocolates by the bed and a new toothbrush "in case"! The owners were friendly. We were glad to be able to go to the supermarket, open until 7pm and to cook our meal and relax in front of the TV after a long drive from Adelaide. There were two other rooms to choose from. The upstairs apartment looked really nice too.

After a disappointing stay in Daylesford (tired, gloomy, but expensive accommodation), we were thrilled by the comfortable, stylish rooms offered by the St Arnaud Old Post Office B&B as well as the warm hospitality offered by the owners. We had one of the best Indian meals we have ever had at the local Indian restaurant & a too short exploration of the charming town. Next time we plan to skip the expense of staying in Daylesford & spend several days in St Arnaud at this lovely B&B.

We have a soft spot for St Arnaud, a great little town we discovered on a previous pilgrimage to the ancestoral farm in the Malee. Last time it was the caravan park in a mobile home, so this was our first time at the Old Post Office.
With the whole top floor to ourselves we just fell in love with the Old Post Office - stylish, comfortable and functional - an all to rare combination. And the owners - warm and welcoming without being over-powering, the perfect hosts.
My only regret was that we only had the one night - there is so much to do in the area, and this would have to be the ideal home base.
We will be back.
