Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 19, 2011

The Bryn at Tilba is great retreat with character, purpose-built by Simon who runs it. The facilities were lovely and the common lounge and dining room (with wood burner) has so much character and a beautiful view out to the ocean. Simon made us so welcome. The Bryn sits on a hill in lovely open countryside and we would have loved to have stayed for longer to relax and explore the area more. This was one of several stays on our Melbourne to Sydney coastal road-trip and one of the most memorable.

My daughter and I stayed at this lovely B & B and both loved the atmosphere, views and hospitality of the owners. We loved the fact that the B&B is a seperate building, and the owners pop down to cook breakfast (scrumptious and plenty of it), leaving guests to feel completely private. No one else stayed the night we were there, so it was like having a beautiful old house all to ourselves. Very welcoming and cosy atmosphere. Loved the small touches like binoculars to make the most of the sweeping coastal view, and the crystal decanter of port in the lounge. Would be a wonderful B&B to hire out for a group of friends, or family. Just around the corner from Central Tilba historic village, where you can spend all day pottering in the shops and cafes and soaking up the atmosphere. No criticisms or complaints at all.

Room Tip: .All rooms looked lovely. Different bedding configurations and sizes.

My partner and I stumbled across this South Coast gem last year while we were exploring the area. As a B&B it is a fantastic concept being in a house that is seperate from the owners dwelling. We have stayed in B&B's before where we were too scared to come out of our rooms at night least we bump into our hosts in their pyjamas.
Lynda and Simon, our hosts could not have been more welcoming and were right up the driveway in case we needed anything. Simon was extremely knowledgable about the local area with some fantastic tips of things to see and do. He also cooks a gastronomic feast for your breakfast which had us skipping lunch. Fruit, cereal, juice, coffee, home grown rhubarb and a big cooked breakfast with toast left us very happy for a busy day.
In the afternoon we sat on the gorgeous verandah with the most beautiful view down the coast and admired the serenity while eating the local cheese. Simon very unobtrusively lit a fire for us to warm up with in the communal living area afterwards.
All in all our stay here could not have been more beautiful. The Bryn is modern but with old fashioned antique style furnishings which make it feel very homely and comfortable. We were so impressed that we have booked our parents in for a weekend for a Xmas present.

If you don't mind your skimpy breakfast taking an hour to be served on odd plates collected at garage sales, you'll probably be OK. But take your glasses as the 14' TV (no DVD) is fixed high on the wall facing the bed.
It was a while since the floor rugs had been vaccuumed, but we spent so much time distracted by the 17 picutures on the walls of our room featuring mainly gumtrees, that iwe didn't look down often - maybe that was the purpose?
Then there was the old sofa on the verandah, which closely matched the second hand furniture in the main residents lounge , not a good look for a B&B charging $140 for a 'standard' room.
The host makes the breakfast right beside the living room table and appeared disorganised,and even though there was a dishwasher washed up as he went along while we waited patiently for our orange juice,cornflakes etc.,The weak filter coffee was not a good start to the day.
Tilba is a gorgeous National Trust Heritage Village and has few B&Bs so the owner is onto a good thing. What a pity the attention to detail, furnishings ,china, food and cleanliness doesn't encourage one to return.
The Bryn web site says 'Award Winning'....I wonder which award and in which year? iIt certainly wouldn't win any any now.

Very cosy, beautiful B&B. Gorgeous location with a stunning view over the local farms and all the way to Mystery Bay. Simon the host is very friendly and cooks a wonderful breakfast.

We stayed in the deluxe room which was absolutely enormous, with french doors that opened onto the deck. Excellent value for money.

Highly recommended!

I found this place by accident as the the person running the B&B where I was going to stay had to go away due to a medical emergency.

It got there after dark and it was a little difficult to find but worth the search. The rooms are excellent and there was a lovely wood burning stove roaring in the lounge area. Breakfast was good and the hospitality warm.

The weather was poor when I was there but the potential of the views and the location were obvious.

Worth seeking out.

Our children sent us for a night at the Bryn in November 2007 and we enjoyed it so much ,that we decided to go back for our 42nd wedding anniversarry. The home is set on acreage on a hill overlooking the village of Tilba with magnificent views .It has been tastefully decorated throughout, and the rooms are large and oh so comfortable.I just love the homestead. Once we had booked in, we wandered through all the little village shops,admiring the crafts of the locals,had a drink in the Dromaderry hotel and walked to the "lookout" where we stood for some time,imagining how it must have been "in the old mining days"We wished we were a bit younger so we could have walked up mount dromedarry!! Instead we wandered through the gorgeous Fox Glove gardens.On our way back to the Bryn we stopped and purchased some local cheese and wine. We sat out on the veranda enjoying our wine ,cheese and biscuits listening to the birds and enjoying the magnificent scenery. Off our room was a large spa that too was enjoyable so much so that we have decided we will put one in our home. Linda and Simon are wonderful hosts and will do anything to make your stay as memorable as they can. In fact there was a lovely bottle of champagne set up for us to celebrate our anniversarry compliments of the host. NICE TOUCH!! Simon has a great sense of humour too. In the morning he cooked us a huge gourmet breakfast,there was also cereals fresh fruit,nuts and berries and yogurt set out for us as well. We looked forward to the breakfast, remembering how good it was on our last visit!! And it takes a good hour to get throughit MMMMMM so enjoyable. We would recommend spending time at the Bryn so relaxing. I have booked the whole house for my birthday in March and am looking forward to taking all my daughters there and having a great girls night.
