We stayed here 2 nights as a starting point for Freycinet and East Coast touring (and was a great location). Stayed in the Rose room which for those who love staying in a place with history is very special - that part of the house was built in 1825! Lovely room, fireplace in the room, very beautifully decorated. We are a family of 4 (mum, dad, 8 & 6 year olds) and there is a queen in the room + a gorgeous single and my son slept in front of the fire on a great double thickeness mattress - a highlight of his trip! Any past problems noted by previous reviewers no longer exist - eg there is a blind over the skylight in the eaves which you can pull down should you not want the morning light and the hosts don't access the room between the bedroom and bathroom (you can lock it on both doors - hard to describe but great to have small extra room we used for our bags, makes the whole thing really like a suite). Hosts are lovely, very accommodating, knowledgeable, and helpful and as noted by many others, the breakfast jams are excellent! Highly recommended for a lovely country stay.

We stayed here for one night before a day trip to Maria Island and thoroughly enjoyed the accommodation and hospitality. The rooms very nice, quiet, spacious and a touch of history to them. Service from the hosts was great. They were very helpful with local recommendations and the breakfast prepared in the morning was excellent. They have a very excitable black labrador named Chester who was just gorgeous. He is well trained to stay away from the guest bedrooms, but we found it quite funny when he kept trying to jump in our car. He must have wanted to go for a ride!
Location was great, just a 15 minute drive to the Maria Island Ferry and there is a great little pizza place on the river, just a couple of minutes down the road.
Highly recommended.

We stayed at Sanda House some years ago and it was delightful. Would definitely stay again. All services very clean - quaint and pleasing. Enjoyed the home-made preserves for breakfast. Booked after we saw the dog in photos - we are pet lovers. Travel was prior to dates mentioned on this page.

We stayed at Sanda House for just one night and I couldn't have been happier. We stayed in the Mulberry room which has a nice view over the back veggie patch out to the ocean. It was really tidy and quite cosy and well layed out. Our hosts really made us feel at home allowing me to use the wash room to do some ironing.

The continental breakfast is absolutely delicious and you get plenty even without hot foods.

The best part of our stay was being able to check out at 11:30am upon request. We were attending a wedding later that day and had nowhere else to get ready.

I would happily recommend Sanda House B&B, and Orford itself, as a place to stay its a lovely place altogether.

A very picturesque setting and a wealth of history with the building - but don't expect any mod cons. The rooms were dark and not the best of lighting. Linen was clean, but the shower and washing facilities, whilst also clean were somewhat cramped. Breakfast is a continental type; cereal, yoghurt, and homemade jams and compote; all very tasty, but more could have been provided for the price and the needs for a full day ahead.

If you're into early Australian History then this is the place to stay. The original stone construction (mid 1800's) reveals the scutch marks from the builders; every wall seems to tell a story! Home-made preserves with toast for breakfast and a friendly pooch called Chester to finish off the left-overs! The en-suite is small but totally functional, and I liked the fact that the bar fridge was just outside the bedroom door: nothing worse than a noisy motor! A beautiful garden setting and a 10 minute walk to the river, where Scorcher's Pizza place will not disappoint!

Room Tip: I'd say that all of the rooms are quality

This is a B&B homestay in an old heritage home (1840), and that is what to expect.

There is a guest sitting area with old magazines which is fun adn the location is peaceful. The breakfast includes delicious fresch bread and home made preserves.
