After a long day's drive, I was greeted very warmly by Marion and Stan with a welcome glass of wine. I had a beautiful room in a beautiful home with the most comfortable bed, and many quality extras with the accommodation. Superb breakfast on the verandah before I unfortunately had to depart on my drive south. Excellent value and an outstanding place to stay in Rockhampton. Thank you Marion and Stan - you are great hosts who really 'go that extra mile'.

We were lucky enough to stay at Athelstane house in Rockhampton, Queensland, Australia. Not only was the B & B architecturally gorgeous, the rooms were spacious, well appointed, and our hosts delighted to help us find restaurants and things to do. The Botanical Gardens and Zoo were within walking distance and had walking trails, beautiful plants and flowers, and just before the beuatiful sunset, had flocks of birds. We had a hearty and scrumptious breakfast served and cooked by our friendly hosts. We traveled with another couple and all four of us thought the hospitality was fit for royalty. Don't miss it if you are in the area!

We stopped off here on our way from Brisbane to Airlie Beach and were delighted with our stay. The room was a good size, clean and comfortable and the shower was excellent with nice cosmetics. Marion and Stan were very welcoming and friendly and we had a wonderful breakfast on the verandah right outside our room. Stan showed us round the house and the work they have done on it and all the rooms look great and the pool very appealing. I would highly recommend the Athlestane House if you are looking for accommodation in Rockhampton.

We stayed at Athelstane house, overnight only, en route to Airlie Beach. The house is a beautiful old Queenslander. Very clean and nicely appointed. Beautiful antiques. We arrived rather late and were warmly greeted by Stan. Excellent pub/restaurant recommendation - the Criterion Hotel. We had a very nice rest then a great breakfast and were on our way. A third room is in preparation which looks like it will be fantastic. Enjoyed an early morning run through the botanical gardens nearby.

Athelstane House is terrific. It is a Queenslander House built in the late 1800s and has all the character and warmth of somewhere really special. The owners Stan and Marion live in the basement area and there are two guest rooms on the ground floor, both which have french doors leading on to the veranda where you have a sumptuous breakfast. The house is stylishly furnished with high quality period furniture reflecting the uniqueness of the property. Although the house is from the late 1800s the bathroom is very modern and has a very powerful double shower, most welcome after the humidity of the area. We loved staying here as we it felt quite special, and enjoyed the comfortable lounge where there was complimentary sherry or port, a nice touch to finish off the day. Stan and Marion have made their property into something special which they wish to share - all I can say is go and give it a try.
