If you have forgotten what good old fashioned friendly hospitality and service is........do yourself a favour ........spend a little time with Sonya and John. Nothing is too much trouble.
Make sure you have dinner on the deck...........a lovely menu with fresh produce (and the most delicious Caribbean Sweet Potato Soup!)
Don't know where else you would get a home made croissant for breakfast, that is seriously better than any I have had in France!
We had a lovely Easter Break ....................I was impressed!

Wow, receiving reviews from our guests is always fantastic, but to receive a review from one of our peers is the ultimate. We enjoyed making Easter special for everyone that stayed at the Grove. Gena and Garth thank you so much.

We stayed one night in February 2012 and it was fantastic so i wrote a review. This time we were fortunate to stay 2 nights and NO rose-coloured glasses for this review, the service surpassed everything that i remembered. From the delightful quiet location, the genuine friendly and welcoming service, John & Sonya do a magnificent job and we would go back again. Their attitude of nothing is too much trouble, the magnificent breakfasts on the verandah overlooking the valley, the comfortable rooms, the little things that make your stay that bit more special, intelligent conversation, their local knowledge of places to go and restaurants to visit, make each day seem much longer and more enjoyable. As John says "if you don't like people then you shouldn't be in this business" shines through and validates the awards Avocado Grove have received. John & Sonya cooked our evening meal on Good Friday and it would surpass many restaurants. Easter Sunday breakfast was complete with an Easter Bunny sitting on our plates welcoming us! So...do yourself a favour and experience Avocado Grove!

Thank you Sonya & John, you made this weekend very special.

cheers
eleanor & John

Room Tip: All the rooms are lovely and comfortable.

What a wonderful experience when we chanced on John and Sonja at the avocado grove. From one of many possible places to stay in the area we were fortunate enough to choose this lovely sited home from home. We were made to feel immediately welcome and special by two people who make a difficult job apparently very easy. The rooms are nicely appointed and the terrace where a superb breakfast is served has a wonderful view of the amazing scenery.

A big thanks to John and Sonya for the enjoyable stay and the hospitality fit for royals.
The brekky and dinners were superb.
The rooms were very nice and setup well, Bed rooms and dining areas were very neat and the patio areas with a magic view to nature and natural surrounds, very quiet and very peaceful.
The property was nice to wander about and take in the natural beauty of the area and wildlife.
I would visit again and stay a lot longer.
John and Sonya made us feel very welcome, and this was our first trip to QLD.

Room Tip: Bedroom with balcony retreat and views.

Stayed at Avocado Grove for one night and was the nicest B&B we have ever stayed at. Right from the time we booked the room, the service provided by John and Sonya was exceptional.

We were attending a wedding at the Spicers Cloverly Estate on the Friday night and John kindly offered to drop us off and pick us up from the venue! First class service! The house and gardens are immaculate and the Shepherd room was very spacious, comfortable and squeaky clean. The house is situated just minutes from the heart of Montville and is on a quiet and well maintained street.

Breakfast in the morning is served on the verandah overlooking the beautifully kept gardens. It was devine and plentiful and consisted of a large fruit platter, yoghurt, home made granola and then topped off with a cooked breakfast of bacon and eggs (your choice of how you want your eggs cooked) and all the sauces and condiments plus orange juice, delicious espresso coffee and tea.

We wanted to visit some of the local farmers markets and John spent some time recommending which were the best. We loved our stay and would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone looking for accommodation in the area.

We had a wonderful two day stay to celebrate my birthday. John and Sonya spoiled us in every way, great dinner and breakfasts, a bunch of roses for my birthday and chocolates in the evening while we played a new game, the Mexican Train. We had interesting and lovely conversations and felt like spending time with our best friends. It was great to be away from any traffic noise and enjoy the peacefulness of nature and listen to the many birds in the trees surrounding us.
We loved it and certainly will come back again.
