Hi Alan, if you had a hip replacement surely you should have mentioned this to us and we could have put you in a downstairs room? We always strive for guest comfort and are alarmed that you would rate us as "average" due to your personal medical condition which we were u aware of. What a shame that this was...

Lovely, although our room was a little small it did allow direct access to the fabulous pool. Jim is the best host and thinks of nearly everything guests might need. We would certainly stay again. Freeman is in the perfect spot for walking to all the Beechworth attractions and restaurants and Jim is a wealth of local knowledge.

Amazing hospitality in a classy B&B. The room was superb. Breakfasts were great with little extra touches such as beautiful plates and cups and fruit served differently every day. You then return to your room to find it tidied up - the same as after dinner. Sitting each day by the gorgeously heated pool with afternoon tea and champagne felt...

What a beautiful place to stay. Top quality on all levels. Such a beautiful environment we really didn't want to leave. We would have sat beside the pool all day if we could have. Great hosts, great location and a beautiful place to spend some time.

This is at least our 5th year staying here. Each stay just gets better. The hosts went over and above to make our stay enjoyable and the attention to detail is fantastic. Nothing is too much bother. Highly recommend and can see why this is the No 1 place to stay in Beechworth. You will not be disappointed!
