We were thrilled with the location and history of this beautifully restored accommodation. It was modern inside but retained all the stone and wooden charm of yesteryear. Located right across from the main wharf it was peaceful and quiet. We were charmed by its elegant simplicity.

Staying here is one of those rare experiences the memory of which will linger long after the town has been forgotten. Housed in a National Trust listed former VDL Company woolstore, these stunning suites are both an architectural tour de force and very comfortable accommodations the massive bluestone walls of which silently tell of a rich and varied history. If...

Located just down from the heart of the historic village is this beautifully decorated accommodation. There are 3 rooms and they are tastefully decorated with lots of timber features. The room included all the mod cons and the bathroom was quite exceptional with a free standing bath and separate shower. They offered quality amenities and brought in a selection of...

Saw the building and fell in love. Went inside and loved,loved,loved it. Approximately 170 year old building containing 3 suites, we stayed in number 2 on the upper floor overlooking the park. The beds were so comfortable with crisp white sheets,made up daily. We'd go out for dinner and come back to chocolates every night. Noticed some folks having a...

You might argue the staying in an original VDL Company wool warehouse listed by the NT of Australia was a privilege. Sadly the can turn into something of nightmare for some. Booked from UK this place sounded great. Not cheap at Aus$200 per night. This is an apartment in a converted old warehouse but to be honest the conversion seems...

We were lucky to book the loft suite which was amazing. Top quality trimmings, 2 TV sets, relaxing lounge area, functional kitchen, 2 new bicycles in the villa to use at will, amazing comfortable bed. Only quirky thing was the invisible owner. Not a biggy but we were greeted with an envelope stuck to the front door with keys and...

My husband and I stayed here for two nights and the room was perfect. I beautiful mix of heritage building and modern conveniences.

There are features that are real winners in the accommodation stakes- Historic building, original features, sensitive restoration, sizeable, quality appointments, interesting decor...well this factory-turned-boutique hotel has it all. We stayed in the King Loft which was on two levels and had a dining/kitchen area. We do not usually 'dine in' on our holidays but this suite was so gorgeous that...

Recently had the pleasure of a 2 nights stay in the King suite which we purchased via Groupon. This beautiful original building has been amazingly restored internally in such an understated classic way. Our room was gorgeous - roomy, cosy but tastefully modern in keeping with the building - had every possible extra - bathroom was a something else (amazing!)...
