This is a converted old pub I think (long ago I expect), and it has a lovely old-world charm about. The hosts are similarly old-world charm! Lovely people (July 2016) who made you feel very much at home. Rooms were very nice and the shared bathrooms quite acceptable. Breakfast was a delight. No family rooms (we were in two rooms),...

We stayed one night in the comfy quiet Yellow room with king size bed. Hugh made us feel home immediately upon arrival. We enjoyed his delicious homemade Anzac cookies and the extensive breakfast. The video of Broken Hill was very informative.Thank you Hugh. Beautiful hospitality and highly recommendable.

Nice place with lovely people that make you feel at home. Hugh was very friendly and helpful. One can immediately see that the B&B is run with lot of love and sense for detail. We enjoyed our stay and we would stay there any time.

We stayed at one of the rental properties (a couple blocks from the B&B), but still had very friendly service from the owners. The accommodation is old, but clean and comfortable. Imagine staying at a retired professor/artists cottage. All properties are full of books and art done by the owners.

Hi Mark - yes the accommodation is definitely old! Miners Cottages from the late 1800s, in fact and we're glad you found them comfortable. Thanks for your kind words and we hope you'll visit Broken Hill again and stay with us. Cheers Barb and Hugh More
