Dream Weekend

Posted Nov 22, 2014
Pros: Without a doubt Caroline and Stephano's love for what they do and the way they make you feel like part of their family.
Cons: Air conditioning would be a good idea
Location: Central to everything you want on the Gold Coast or Hinterland. Give me lush and green over concrete any day
I don't believe I have ever been able to say that I truly enjoyed any hotel or B&B until my stay here. My girlfriend and I recently spent an amazing weekend in this beautiful old Queenslander. We were greeted by the beautiful owner Caroline and her son Stephano and immediately made to feel like one of the family. This was my girlfriends first time in a B&B and like me was blown away by the location and the hospitality. The room was beautiful and facilities first rate, breakfast on the balcony is a must, beautiful food and awesome company. Arrived as strangers but left as friends.

Holiday from hell!

Posted Nov 10, 2014
Cons: New ownership.
Booking was lost so had to spend first night at another place with no reception. Came back next day and had to wait 5 hours to get into room and had to listen to the owners bicker all day. Every time we tried to get a meal at the place the owner came up with a new excuse. 24 hours notice for dinner??? Are you kidding me?? I had to go to coles and buy $50 worth of food because the owner wouldn't feed us. She had overbearing rules and made us feel like an burden. We left for home 2 days early and told her to keep the money. I was happy to pay $220 to get as far away from her as possible. When I told the owner I was leaving all she cared about was booking the room for that night even though I had paid for 2 extra nights. We tried to be understanding at first and were happy to be mellow but she took advantage of our good nature. She constantly left the hotel unattended with guests running it. I was the only one around to greet new guests and had to explain to them I was not the owner. Its places like this that give Bed and breakfasts a bad name. Also she was going to charge us the same for dinner as weekends and even admitted to us she doesn't put in any effort on weekdays. Hope she goes out of business the way she abused our good nature.

Close to Mudgeeraba showgrounds

Posted Nov 8, 2014
Pros: Closeness to Mudgeeraba showgrounds
Cons: Perhaps not have laminated "rules"
Location: Go to the beach
Quite comfortable. Slightly eccentric. Several "rules" displayed in various places.

Lovely quiet area away from the noise of traffic. Very comfortable bed. Home made jams added a nice touch for breakfast.

Sorry, Lyn and Peter for the lateness of my response to your very short but very descriptive message. Glad you enjoyed the calm of our place as well as the bed and Robert's own creation of jams. Hope we will see you again when you are next in the area!

Great Place/Great Family

Posted Oct 6, 2013 on Hotels.com
Caroline is a wonderful hostess. The breakfasts are hot and fresh. make sure to try the strawberry jam! Her family is beautiful, friendly and accommodative. They make you feel right at home. Their French heritage is refreshing and the rooms have a French villa feel to them. I watched her son hold and feed a Cookooburo right out of his hand, no joke! See the website for a video of it. Bird watch while you eat breakfast on the patio above the pool. They fly right up to the deck, not more than 10 feet away. The view is breathtaking, the beds are clean and comfortable, the baths are excellent. Make sure to ask for the honey moon sweet, if available. Thanks for a wonderful stay! Hope to return in the near future.
