Mary and Geoff were gracious hosts and went beyond staying at their lovely cottage.
Geoff drove us to the ferry and told us what bus would available to return. Also advised us
that a cab might not cost any more than the bus transportation. They told us about good eateries in the area. It was a convenient location to other sights. The bed was comfortable and we had plenty of room with a kitchen and sitting area. They helped us with printing our boarding passes. All in all a good experience.

We were fortunate to finish our Queensland holiday at this lovely B&B.
Geoff and Mary were the most welcoming and helpful hosts. Geoff even drove us to the ferry pick up when we wanted a day in the city.The bedroom was so comfortable and a welcome retreat after a day of sightseeing.The location was perfect with the fantastic restaurants of Rosalie only a few minutes walk.I would recommend this B&B to anyone who wants to be just out of the city.

All the good reviws are correct. Don't think twice, clean and well presented, great value, close to shops and restaurants and bus stops etc. In a very pleasant neighbourhood. My son and I stayed in the downstairs rooms which were very private with a small kitchen. The upstairs room share a large fully equiped kitchen and dinning area.

We recently spent a most enjoyable weekend , with Mary & Geoff at their wonderful B&B.The accommodation was first class , spacious & spotlessly clean , with everything imaginable provided( including the kitchen sink ) .Breakfast was enjoyable & plentiful.
The location is excellent with Rosalie Village , restaurants & bus stops ,an easy 5 minute walk away . Paddington Shops & Suncorp are also close by, as is the CBD & trendy Milton.
Mary & Geoff area perfect couple for this type of "hands on " accommodation, both going way beyond the normal to make sure your stay is comfortable & enjoyable.
We have already booked our next stay !!

This is better than home away from home.
The hosts Mary and Geoff are welcoming, friendly and go beyond all expectations to accommodate your every wish, want or need.
The rooms are tastely furnished, giving a feel of yester year with all the mod cons, and little extras, providing maximin comfort.
There are facilities to cook your own food, including a BBQ. Some foods available to purchase to do this, eg meat packs, a selection of wine, etc. Breakfast is provided with a great selection to accommodate all appetites.
Fern Cottage is in an excellent location within walking distance to many cafes and resturants, that provide foods from across the globe.
I would recommend this accommodation as great value for money, relaxing, and an oasis to revitalise for the next day.
