“Victorian style house with good breakfast”
Reviewed January 13, 2012

We were traveling to Lakes Entrance during Xmas and decided to stay in Bairnsdale as the accommodation was more affordable. Picked this one on Wotif.

Overall not too bad and met our expectation for a B&B. As it is a big, older house, it can look a bit dark and creepy. The house has an impressive collection of antique as the owner collects them since he was young. The bed was comfortable and bathroom was clean. Breakfast was good and we were offered bacon and eggs, after we had finished our cereal.

Sounded great online and looks quaint from the outside. Welcoming not as friendly as expected from a small B&B. No offering of cheese and wine at 5.30pm as advertised on website.

Room and large ensuite had lovely Victorian feel, however shower had dried leaves which had fallen out of the air vent and the linen on the bed was marked. Also we were advised the TV had not been set up so we would not be able to watch TV (even though the website boasts TVs in every room).

Breakfast at the communal dining table was delicious.

Good location. Quiet and pleasant.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the front - these have more natural light
