The morning complimentary continental breakfast is very good with a wide variety, including freshly cooked boiled eggs & a machine for fresh brewed coffee. We had european relatives stay with...

What sets out a place is not the bells and whistles but rather how the basics are performed. Personal Service. Breakfast. Bedding. So some wise counsel on which walk to take..Wentworth Falls. Breakfast as if one were at home Bedding to not want to get up So having had a long trip looking back we really rated the atmosphere.

We loved our stay at this beautiful, historic home. We were welcomed by Iain, who made us feel like we were visiting family. Very comfortable and lovingly restored with authentic antiques. So many complimentary elements included numerous teas, freshly ground coffee, biscuits, cake, port to name just a few. Continental breakfast included.

This antique guesthouse has been thoroughly renovated with exquisite taste and thoughtfulness. Limited edition prints decorated the room. Toiletries are of the top quality. Breakfast was delicious and generous. From this place you can walk to trail along the Cliff Drive, Echo Park, or downtown.

Charming, historic house, good location, within walking distance of the main street, shops, restaurants and art galleries. Friendly, helpful owners. Comfortable room with spa and all necessary amenities. Good breakfast. Minor suggestions for improvement: freshly brewed coffee, not from a machine, Bible in room, (most hotels have one and Gideon provides them free), handrails in spa to prevent falls.

Ian and Evelyn were very friendly and helpful, not in our faces but available when we needed them. My partner and I booked the English Rose room and it was lovely with a spacious bathroom and hot tub. Breakfast was great, served at 8 am with delicious options to choose from, our favourite was the croissants (I'm assuming homemade). It...

We took visiting relatives from Holland to stay for 3 nights recently. We were hoping for something special to end their holiday and at Kurrara that is just what we got. There is nothing we could fault during our day. You made our stay exceptional. Thank you our wonderful hosts, we will be back.
