Beaufort House is owned by an ex-corporate city chic who made the sea change to the country bringing with her a Wine Bar & her Viennese cuisine. Its country NSW but not so far off the highway that its all chickens & inbred’s. A great stay if you like long drives into the country, scenic landscapes & good wine. Probably not great for gang members or trophy wives
Aside from the themed European rooms, there are also motel rooms. The Amsterdam Room has direct access to the shared front balcony. No TV, Wi-Fi or private bathroom. Has heater, electric blankets & mini fridge. High ceilings, bathrobes & a decanter of Port wine to bribe guests. The walls are thin, the bed is squeaky & the wooden floors crack with each step, an absolute nightmare for honeymooners on a burgling spree. With these annoyances aside, the old world wine bar-open til late & Venetian menu make for an interesting night in the country.
Closer to Melbourne than Sydney, located in hilly country in the foothills of the Snowy mountains & around towns of Wagga, Batlow, Tumut & Gundagai it is well positioned for a nice day trip to explore the neighbouring townships. The slow-paced life will appeal to stressed-out city people who drink too much. Would probably return.
