“Garden delight”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

Rob was a delightful host. He was welcoming and very helpful, especially in helping us select a place for dinner. We only had one night here, but found it really relaxing. Our suite overlooked the most beautiful garden that keeps host Rob very busy. Birds abounded and after a long drive it was lovely to sit in the garden listening to the sounds of the bush, even though we were in suburbia. The home is abundant with trinkets and history and you could browse rooms forever. A hearty breakfast was served up before we left in the morning and Rob was even more helpful when we left a set of keys behinds. He sent them back to us in the mail without hesitation. I am just sorry we didn't get to meet his wife Robyn. Would thoroughly recommend this property, especially if you are travelling with other couples.

Room Tip: Great stopover, especially for couples travelling together

Recently my husband and I stayed 2 nights at Briardale. This was my first stay in a B&B and I couldn't have been more pleased.

Rob and Robyn were gracious hosts. It felt more like staying at a friends house than in an hotel.

The rooms were spacious, beautifully furnished and had views of the stunning gardens. The bed was extremely comfortable and every possible need had been catered for. Breakfast in the morning was delicious and the dining room was a wonderful place to relax over a hot breakfast. So too was the sitting room. Each night we sat there in front of the fireplace reading, chatting and relaxing.

We will definitely return. In fact I could think of nowhere better to stay in Albury.

The charm of this place is unbelievable it's a total gem hidden away in Albury. The breakfast is delicious and they had a French Press, for a Yank it was sooo much better then then NesCafe I was used to in Oz. Close to everything but you won't want to leave the grounds the garden is so peaceful and perfect. Our only regret is we could only stay one night, would have love to stay a week!

My boyfriend and I stayed at Briardale B&B for 1 night on our way to Melbourne and were extremely impressed! Briardale B&B is only a short drive from the centre of Albury. The house is charming, with unique Victorian themed decor and a magnificent garden. The owners, Robert and Robin (who live on site), are friendly and hospitable and their attention to detail is fantastic! We stayed in the Clarke Suite and were impressed by the beautiful antique furniture and large ensuite bathroom, which was immaculate. A continental breakfast was included in the $145 tariff. The breakfast was delicious. We especially enjoyed the large selection of teas. One of the best B&B experiences we have had so far! Well worth the money! I would highly recommend Briardale B&B.

We stayed here on our way down to Melbourne. The proprietors are very nice and helpful. Location wasn't that great so you need a car. Room was very twee! We had the continental breakfast which was v good compared to others. We did find it a little odd though that the other room was more expensive and had a cooked breakfast, so we were a little embarrassed that they asked how they liked their eggs etc whilst we sat there without. Most places do one or the other, so I found it a little strange.

We felt comfortable, rested and relaxed with in this period accommodation "the attention to detail was spot on". Our hosts were genuinely warm and welcoming, and provided us with all the comforts of home, breakfast was beautifully cooked and delicious. We enjoyed a roam around the garden and admired the beautiful lorikeets and other bird life. A fantastic stay, well worth the value!

We stayed one night at Briardale on the way to Melbourne. It took a few minutes to locate but it really is a delightful place to stay and the children were enchanted by the house and gardens. Breakfast wasn't bad either! Highly recommended and I wish we had spent a few more days in the area.
