This gorgeous period B&B is definitely 5 star. From the street the house instantly catches your eye with it's turret, white picket fence and beautiful cottage garden. As you walk up the path to the double front doors and verandah the entry hall leads to two large bed rooms with ensuites and walk in robes fully kitted out with tea and coffe making facilities (including biscotti). Every little thing has been considered in these rooms. The towels in the ensuites are large, soft and fluffy. In the showers are large pump bottles of salon quality shampoo and conditioner! The large beds are made up with Sheridan linen and are as comfortable as sleeping in your own bed at home (if not better). Each room has a wall mounted LCD TV and DVD player. Casual, stylish elegance is the name of the game here with several table settings on the deck to relax into with a wine before heading out for dinner. After a perfect nights sleep breakfast was to die for with a seasonal fruit platter and yoghurt, tea and coffe and the absolute best scrambled eggs, bacon and tomato I've ever tasted. At breakfast the lorikeets arrive on queue for their piece of the action with Stan feeding them from a large bird bath in the garden. Photo ops abound with these cheeky birds perching all around curious as to what we've been served. I'll definitely be returning to Athelstane House and encourage anyone travelling to or through Rockhampton to do the same. What a winner.
