A fantastic place to break from your journey. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Beautiful garden. Make sure you explore the garden. The rooms are better than any 5 -star hotels but set in a home environment

This is a very nice B&B and I would agree with almost all of the positive points in other reviews. The views over the manicured garden were beautiful & relaxing and the room, although not huge, has everything you need. The breakfast was delicious as everyone seems to agree. The only slight downside was that we found it a little...

Everything about Balconies Dolphincove was excellent. The roooms were beautifully appointed, with everything you could need. The views over the garden were relaxing. Breakfast was just superb! Russell and Michael were wonderful hosts - sadly they are moving on, and I hope the new owners will be able to maintain things to their high standards. We had a lovely stay,...

We were greeted on arrival and shown our room. The room was perfect with everything you need in a B&B. The balcony overlooks the nice garden and pool. Breakfast was delivered in our room and was a very high standard. We really enjoyed our stay and would give an eleven, if possible.

We decided on booking 4 days away at this property based on the reviews we found online. We were very happy with this choice. Russell and Michael are the perfect hosts who make us feel welcome from the moment we arrived.

Where do you begin with a property like this? Most likely with a huge thank you to Michael and Russell for a beautifully run B&B. The breakfasts which changed daily were cooked to perfection, the pool which I sat by daily to read was solar heated and always at the right temparature and our bed was super comfy. The rooms...

After 10 days of travelling around NSW we were after a couple of days of r&r, preferably with a bit of indulged pampering and The Balconies fitted perfectly.

Having stayed 2 nights at Balconies we wished for a longer stay in the end as the rooms are extremely cosy, well equipped (brandnew bathroom with molton brown soaps, nice lighting, cosy and large bed) and a breakfast to die for. Every morning we waited for the 8:30 knock at our door and a lovely 3 course breakfast with daily...
