I was even happier with this B&B 2nd time round, we stayed in the Bong Bong room and it was more private, larger and soooo quiet. In fact it was so large with a little dining table, that we'll definitely eat in next time. Breakfast is ok, nothing flash, but decent. Probably only small point from improvement, would be a...

The title says it all. The best part was enjoying a glass of wine in the garden after a hard day touristing. We had the upstairs room out the back which was comfortable and made maximum use of the limited space. A good breakfast.

Lovely overnight stay, quaint country feel with beautifully maintained gardens and grounds. Room was really nice with comfy bed & all the amenities one would need to enjoy one or two nights. We always stay here when doing the drive from Melbourne to Sydney. Recommend this place.

We chose to stay here as it is a great place to do lots of walking. The breakfast was just great with fresh fruit which you don't find everywhere. The staff are very helpful and friendly. A gorgeous property in a really great part of NSW. Highly recommended!

We had the room out the back. It was huge. Really nice room. The decor was lovely. The folks that run the place were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was nice. Only thing that stops my review from being 5 stars was the noise of people upstairs in our roof. You can hear them moving around and footsteps etc. Still...

We stayed at Strathburn B and B in Bowral from 19 June 2015 to 21 June 2015. Our primary objective in coming here was for some serious Peace and Quiet in what we perceived to be a very quiet accommodations in a quiet Southern Highlands town. The hospitality at Strathburn was excellent. Our meet and greet on arrival was thorough...

It is very pleasing that our guests have enjoyed most aspects of our welcoming accommodation. However, I must comment on their concerns regarding noise. Firstly, we have never had any complaints from any guests from either of the two Suites commented on, over the last 3 years and I do believe that this issue would have raised its head previously...

Julie welcomed us .... we had booked the Bong Bong Room (separate rear building) as I wanted no stairs and walk-in shower, and it is like a granny flat with it's own kitchenette and lounges (which are also sofa beds), so exceedingly spacious, as it has a very high ceiling . As it's winter, we turned on aircon and went...

Stayed at this cute little cottage with my husband, along with my brother and elderly father. We were greeted and shown to our rooms by Julie. We had one of the front rooms and also had the problem of the hall light shining into our bedroom through the window at the top of our door. I found the ensuite to...

We arrived to Bowral and checked in earlier than expected. Our room was wonderful (bong bong) - more a studio or granny flat. I could've stayed here much much longer - but we only booked an overnight stay to attend a wedding. Breakfast was just delicious and staff here was so awesome. Totally recommended. It's close to town and just...

We had a lovely moment there. The owners and staff have done a good job in keeping the property up. We love the ambient; it's cozy and well decorated. We had our high tea in the living room beside the fireplace. In the morning, hot breakfast was served as well as cereal and bread. The room is spacious and has...
