My daughter and I spent a perfectly comfortable one night stay in the refurbished "Stable" cottage. Simon was there to greet us warmly to a cottage steeped in charm and comfort, with all the modern convenience, but still with its delightful period character. It was beautifully presented, spotlessly clean and utterly charming. Quiet, cosy, nicely located, everything hit the spot... More

Stopped here for the night on the way to Victoria and had a quiet restful night. We were well looked after by host Simon who made us cups of tea and told us some of the history of the property.

Most welcoming house - and landlord! Beautiful furniture, decent sized rooms, great grounds and retreat areas. There are two bathrooms (upstairs & downstairs). There is some dust and the odd cobweb that could be easily removed, and most likely will be after this review. Breakfast was provided and set out for us for an early exit. Most charming place and...

We enjoyed Colwyn Cottage. The cottage has genuine style and character for a house of its era, and clearly was built to provide comfort. The owner can provide you an article from Australian Home Beautiful, in which it won the "The best little home I know" competition in 1928, and is the subject of the article... our bedroom was downstairs,...

A really poor B and B. Claims 3-4 stars. Would barely rate 1-2. Unkempt grounds , musty smelling house, inept host. Old and tired, and needs a really good clean. Shared upstairs bath, old cake of soap.

We gave these customers a very good service, cancelled our twin room so they could have two bedrooms upstairs to themselves without sharing a bathroom. In the evening of their first night we were informed they wished to cancell {at short notice} the following night due to a problem, but did'nt want to pay the tariff. we compromised and offered...

The house has lots of character, with gorgeous woodwork and some very nice antique pieces. Simon is really nice and served a basic but good cook-to-order breakfast. You definitely get the feel that you've entered someone's home, not a hotel, and the house is almost getting to the point of needing a deep cleaning. Be forewarned that you share a... More

A wonderful stay for 2 nights with host Simon. Friendly, casual and welcoming atmosphere. Simon even picked me up when he noticed me walking down the road with suitcase in hand. Facilities were just what I needed for a 2 night stop. Will always choose the B&B over the big hotel/motel!

We travelled as a group of four (two couples) to Mt Gambier and thoroughly enjoyed the hospitality and quaint charm of Colwyn House. It has been lovingly restored and retains all of the historical charm, whilst also being very clean, tidy and having all the luxuries of an expensive hotel.
