Very cute and cosy bed and breakfast. We were really happy with the facilities. The queen size bed was comfortable and supportive, nice clean little bathroom, compact kitchen area. It had everything we needed plus a lot of character and real charm. Lovely garden and roof-top viewing area with beautiful views of the magnificent outback sunrises and sunsets. Sonja is... More

She was very welcoming and nothing was a problem, it felt like we were staying with family. Breakfast was great and very filling and now she can cook great poached... More

We recently stayed at Sonja's B&B in Lightning Ridge and wanted to write a review on it, but unfortunately it's not listed. However it's a great place to stay ! This little cottage is full of character, the rooms warm and tasteful, beds comfy, good breakfast. Would definitely stay again.
