Thanks for sharing your kind words, Tracey. I'm pleased you and your husband enjoyed your stay at the Cally. Haven't had a mention of the heated toilet seat for ages!! Glad you appreciated it... and the other bits we've added to the ensuite. Makes life a little bit more comfortable, doesn't it? Cheers, Barb. More

Staying at the 120 year old former pub was more than a treat! Hosts Barb and Hugh made my visit most memorable, warm, helpful old fashioned service with a smile, rare to find these days. I stayed in the Sage room which was very nice. A cheerful, quiet place oozing with character. Location is near to town, but far enough... More

Stayed six nights in the 'Blue Wren Cottage' in Lane Street. Good central location. Parking was available in front of cottage. A quiet location. The one electric heater in the lounge was not quite adequate to heat the open plan lounge and kitchen. Beds are comfortable and electric blankets were appreciated. Heavier curtains in front bedroon would help you to... More

Thanks, Pam, for your kind words. Sorry you were a bit cold but I had pointed out that the big white thing on the lounge wall was a reverse cycle air conditioner, as is the same in the bedroom.

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.
