“A wonderful place”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

My husband and I stayed at Branell Homestead twice to scope out the venue for our wedding. We fell in love with the place instantly and eventually had our wedding there in June 2012. Branell is a fantastic venue for weddings and will always hold a special place in our heart, however the review I will provide will be based on the facilities as we B&B.

Every time we have stayed at Branell Homestead we have been fortunate enough to have the entire homestead to ourselves. It is worth mentioning that it's not an 'intrusive' B&B, Kathy greets you on arrival and unless you need anything else, that's probably the last time you see anyone else (should you desire).

It goes without saying that the owners, Kathy and Troy Brady have done a wonderful job in building this homestead. With its large kitchen and atrium, and a porch to enjoy a wine, watching the sunset sky - I would love to have a house like this! If you need to escape a wet day, there is a cosy media room well stocked with movies and a floor to ceiling library of books.

A home away from home, it is so easy to slip away from the hustle and bustle of city life. The un-interrupted views and elegant fit outs are from another time. We now live in interstate, but we look forward to returning when we next visit Queensland.

We stayed here for a 2 night mid-week stopover whilst on vacation in this area. A truly wonderful & peaceful location, with a absolute stunningly beautiful Homestead,immaculately through out. Kathy the {owner} was a very happy & heplful lady, who came down & greeted us warmly, pointing out walks around the grounds, media room [ hubby loved this ] & a huge well stocked libaray, we opted for the meat breakfest which was delivered to our door in the most charming of baskets,& of course the fresh eggs curtesy of the hens at the back which we fed our scraps to,
This is a lovely well run & happy homestead, if we are ever in the area again we will have to hesetation instaying again, many thanks Kathy for the memories we have taken back home

We have been here before with a group of 4 couples we booked the homestead out, it was magic you can swim in the dam walk among the mango trees and cook up beautiful meals in the well equipt kitchen. The views are amazing and the homestead is beautiful, the library is truly amazing and there is also a media room. We came again as a couple and rented the Fig tree room. The hosts are fantastic and easily accessible by intercom. We loved the peacefulness here after a hustle bustle xmas.

We are so glad we found Branell Homestead!

That was the most wonderful stays we had in the country,

The rooms and the whole homestead is a gem!!!

The beds and sheets are the most comfortable I have ever experience!

Enjoy my breakfast every morning with that amazinf view sharing my breads with the birds and peacocks :)

air is fresh and the scenery is amazing!!!

The kitchen is lovey and I love the open space patio where we can dine and enjoy the the fresh air and view!!!

Host is extremely friendly and lovely!! Thank u so much Kathy :)

You will need to drive to arrive at the homestead and its not easy even with a gps .... roads are very dark along the way with no street lights so I would advise that u try to get to the homestead before dark.

We got lost on the first night and the host is kind enough to pick us up where we were lost.

2nd night we had a hard time getting on the right route :(

Overall its great!

Room Tip: They have 3 room types and we got us the figtree room with a living area and great views!!!
