Wounderful place very quite and very clean and tidy, great beds and very friendly staff. It is just minutes walk to town and very central to all the national parks Would highly recommended. They have a great breakfast and the pool was wounderful to relax in.

Rustic setting and very tranquil. Old fashioned decor, well made ensuite rooms. Snug and tight but cosy. It's a shame there wasn't aircon as it was 27 degrees overnight, but a delightful place nonetheless. We would have liked to stay longer but we were only here for the balloon ride. It has a pool too so has good amenities.

The beautiful people that run this B&B went above and beyond to make our stay a comfortable one. The rooms were clean and spacious and the complementary port was a hit. The staff helped out in anyway they could to assist my elderly grandmother who we took away for the weekend. It is so close to all amenities which made...

We didn't mind the room at this BnB, but definitely the photographs online are not recent. The hosts were very friendly and welcoming, and I have no doubt would go above and beyond for anyone. What disappointed us most was to be woken by a "herd" of people and cars at 5:45am - a wedding party was getting ready at...

The experience started when I rang Kathy to book. I had seen a price on one of the "wotif"-type sites. When I mentioned it to Kathy, she said that that was an error; 1) they didn't have a one-night price; and, 2) the price was lower than they offer. She didn't flinch, just said that they would honour the advertised...

Baggs of Canungra is in a very central location, both from the town centre....as well as between trekking locations Binna Burra and O'Reily's. While the B&B appeared a bit dated and could use some new floor covering, the screened in porch that was attached to our room, The Kingfisher, added to the quaint vibe. The owners, Ray and Kathy, were...

On arrival, we were a little disappointed to find that the photos of this B&B online were a little enhanced. Obviously the photos were taken at its prime, as we found that the house was a little tired, and could do with some TLC. We were looking forward to sitting around the fire, but found that the red corner lounge...

In Canungra for a wedding and found this place perfect. Clean, cosy and welcoming. A perfect distance for a walk to town and be isolated within a natural setting to be quiet and peaceful.

A B&B should make you feel at home, and Baggs does it. Run by a wonderful couple who make you feel welcome. The rooms are nice and the property offers great corners to relax in. A short walk into the village and a quiet location. Get the basic breakfast with fruit as it is sufficient. It is always nice to...
