My family (wife and 4 children) stayed at Annesley House over Easter. We booked the 3 bedroom suite and stayed 3 nights. We had a fantastic time. It is a wonderful place to stay. It has old world charm and modern day amenity. It was clean and spacious. It is located in the centre of town, a two minute walk...

Annesley house is a beautifully restored historic building that works well as a boutique hotel. The eclectic furnishings and 12ft ceilings add to the charm of the building's beautiful exterior and good location. The hotel rooms are essentially self contained apartments and are larger than many one bedroom apartments in major cities. Very comfortable and, taking into account the kitchen...

Breaking up the drive from Adelaide to Melbourne, my daughter and I enjoyed the experience of overnighting in this wonderfully restored period mansion from the 1870's. We stayed in the 'Doctor Brewer's' ground floor room which delightfully catered for all our needs. Three bedrooms, with a very charming and spacious master for me, a fully equipped kitchen, original claw footed...

Really loved the coziness and attention to architectural, historical detail! I forget the name of the room we had (across from the Captain's Quarters), it had a separate sun room/kids bed room/reading room, whatever you want to use it but we just loved sitting out there once our lil one fell asleep! We stayed 2 nights but I totally could...

My fiancée and I thought The venue was lovely, with some delicious port waiting for us upon arrival. The room was styled to suit the age of the building, but didn't lack for modern comforts such as heating/air con, TV, wifi etc. as the room was styled to be historic, The fridge and stove, were a little older, but while...

What a stunning building. Such love and attention has gone into restoring this beautiful old house. We booked online not really knowing what to expect. Soon after our booking was confirmed we received a phone call, the room we had booked was not suitable for small children for safety reasons, so we were moved to a larger, 2 bedroom apartment...

We really enjoyed stepping back into the past with our four poster bed, elegant room and victoriana in this delightful accommodation. Loved the complimentary glass of sherry and the spa bath. There was just one thing missing. No one greeted us in this very big house - just a key in the door and a scribbled texta note on a...

Sorry we lacked the personal touch, we had a guest set fire to a kitchen benchtop & Larry (manager) was busy with organising repairs etc. We have a phone in the foyer where he can be contacted 24/7.

We arrrived rather late and found a beautiful old house with a lovely, spacious room. The bathroom was fantastic with a bathtub on the middle of the floor. The room itself was furnished with nice old furniture. The owner was very helpful and recommended a nearby restaurant.
