We stopped here for only 2 nights at the start of August and stopped in the Orange room as there were 3 of us. A great set up with 2 bedrooms but one front door so like having your own apartment. The standard of decoration and cleanliness were excellent in the rooms and the breakfast room. We had our own private bathroom which was spotless and well equipped. Breakfast was great with fresh fruit,breads,cereals and boiled eggs if required as well as tea, coffee and juices all at a time that suited you.
The thing that sets Fern Cottage out is Geoff and Mary (not forgetting Max the dog). We were welcomed as the taxi arrived and from that moment until we said our farewells as we left we couldn't have been looked after any better.
No thing was any trouble and our 2 days in Brisbane were (perfectly) arranged by Mary and Geoff!!! They gave us a great tip on how to get to the Australia Zoo which meant we were picked up and dropped off rather than taking 2 buses and a train - Croc Connections in case you were wondering and on our 2nd day Geoff dropped us down to the river ferry and they lent us their Oyster cards to use so we didn't have the hassle and saved money. They recommended great restaurants which were a 5 min walk away and really we couldn't have asked for more.
I would recommend Fern Cottage whole heartedly and if anyone is looking for a model to find out what running a really great B&B should go and visit.
If I could give them 6 stars I would!!!!
