“Highly recommended hidden treasure!”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

Wow! I had researched Victor Harbor in search of a short stay getaway/stopover for our coastal holiday journey from Adelaide to Melbourne. My husband and I were about to make a decision on our accommodation when thanks to the reviews on 'tripadvisor' we found Brooklands Heritage B&B. We'd spent an awful 2 nights in a "5 star" hotel in Adelaide before arriving in Port Elliott and when we arrived, we fell in love. Tony (our fabulous host) showed us through the beautiful cottage and we could hardly contain our excitement and soon forgot about our horrible experience in the city. The cottage had everything (and more) that we could possible want. This is hands down, the most romantic property we've ever stayed at. We extended our stay from 2 nights to 4 nights and wished we'd had more time. The gorgeous coastal views from every room, the open fire, large spa, beautiful gardens, the birds... so romantic and very relaxing. Tony, we can't thank you enough for your generosity and kindness and won't hesitate to recommend your property to family and friends.

We had a most enjoyable time in this lovely private cottage. The beautiful scenery and lovely gardens from the cottage could be seen from all the windows. The warm fire, large spar and generous foods made us feel like we were locked in a time zone in another country. It was hard to believe that all this comfort and peace inside the cottage was overcome from the gale force winds and flooding rains that were on the outside. After 10 years of staying in cottages this was far the best one we have ever been in. Such a lovely way to spend or 39th wedding Anniversary.
Thanks Tony & Wendy.

Thank you so much for your review. You certainly came to us on a wet, wild and windy weekend! I was so glad that you found the cottage a welcoming and cosy refuge from the weather. I can't think of anything more comforting than curling up with a good book in front of a blazing log fire in a cottage that has withstood the stormy blasts of a century and a half of winters! It stirs up a primeval sense of safety and shelter from the raging elements without!

Wow! Feel the serenity! We arrived to a very warm welcome by Tony, the smell of freshly baked bread in the air and a roaring fire in the hearth. Not a thing overlooked. Picture perfect location with rural & sea views, gorgeous heritage decor and attention to detail is second to none! The complimentary foods(generous full cooked breakfast/fruit bowl/dip & biscuits/bread & jams), fresh ground coffee & 8 different teas, choice of wine, chocolates, port, deck of cards/board games/dvd's, books & newspapers to read and even marshmallows to toast in the fire, the highest ever standard of service I've ever experienced, well above any B&B I've ever stayed before! But wait, there's more......the serenity of the spa with views across the hills to the sea, complete with bubble-bath, candles, classical music, warm robes and slippers! Wow! I still can't stop raving about it! Superb! We have booked again for next winter, say no more!

It is difficult to describe how magical and beautiful this B&B is!! My husband and I had such a romantic honeymoon there; every room of the cottage was spotless, and full of charm & history. The food and complimentary chocolates/wine were divine and I highly recommend everyone to stay here! The bed was so comfy and the views were stunning. The most relaxing holiday I've been on!

This is would have to be our favourite B&B in Australia - a perfect combination of thoughtfulness, generosity and style from the host. Everything had been considered to make our stay as enjoyable as possible right down to the binoculars and bird watching book. Thorough class!
