As travellers - we have a definite preference for hotels and B&Bs with heritage listing and/or historical significance. We are selective in terms of quality, service, food and the "ambience" that accommodation offers. Bishops Court is a rare find indeed. Although both hosts, Christine and David, had commitments when we were there, every possible effort and consideration was made to ensure that we had a wonderfully relaxing holiday. Breakfasts were a delightful way to start the day and the beautifully restored, historic surroundings highlighted this well-maintained property. Most of all, the staff ( young Zoe ) was always available for dining suggestions and possible tours. We were even escorted to Vale Creek Winery, had a special talk - overlooking the vineyard and had a delicious antipasto lunch provided by the Bishop's Court Kitchen. You just can not beat that! The chocolates and port in each room is a lovely and unexpected treat. The hosts and staff prove all the time that they really care ! Sets a high standard and a worthy recepient of their recent award.
TIP: 1. Tell your hosts - exactly what you want to get out of your stay.
2. Have a good look at the building and especially the old photos.
