Friendly and helpful hosts, high standards of cleanliness and a comfortable bed. All the appliances worked and it was easy to come, go, and cater for myself when I wanted. The shop (and advice about gems) is very worthwhile - highly recommended. Another 'must' is the observatory. I'm not normally a stargazer, but the opportunity to see Southern Hemisphere constellations,... More

We stayed here for a few nights and from the get go found exactly what we were looking. Peace, quiet, useful information and comfortable surrounds. The outdoor BBQ area was great. I always ask myself would I come back and the answer is an unequivocal yes. Do not pass go, do not collect $200 just stay here! Very pleasurable.

It is a lovely place to stay when we visited last weekend. The self contained rooms were very clean and fitted our needs. The wildlife visited a couple of times too. It was very central which made it easy to get around. The Observatory was great as well. We had a great time. Patricia

What a wonderful surprise to find a modern brick home and spread out units in a large well kept garden surrounded by pristine bush in the Gemfields. After driving past so much land disturbed by mining and quarrying, and homes and buildings made to be moved when claims expire, it is a treat. Kangaroos and wallabies rest under the Iron... More

Great place to stay when visiting the gem fields for a fossick! We've stayed three times now and no doubt will stay again, Jane is always a delight and obviously passed those great qualities onto her daughter who we dealt with this stay. The rooms are always clean and immaculate and have everything you need for one night or as... More

Melissa and I have stayed twice recently and would happily stay again, the rooms were neat, tidy, spacious and well equipped. We spoke with both Michael and Jane who were excellent hosts. One of the main attractions to the area are the gems. On our arrival Jane lent us some equipment to go out a fossick for ourselves. Jane was... More
