We loved our stay at Melba House Boutique B & B and our host Sue was so helpful on where to eat out for dinner, lunches, high tea and anything really! The accommodation was cosy, warm, clean and charming. We loved the room choices and the breakfasts were delicious and varied! Highly recommend this accommodation!

My husband and I stayed three nights in the Dame Edna suite and were quite happy with our accommodations. The suite is exactly as it appears in the photographs we'd seen. The bed was extremely comfortable, as was the sofa, which included a warm throw to cuddle up in. The tea, biscuits, and bottle of port were much-appreciated extras. Sue... More

Weather patterns do change very quickly here in the Mountains so being prepared for all weather can be a challenge when travelling. I was happy to make you comfortable so you can enjoy this beautiful World Heritage national Park. My... More

We stayed three nights in the Dame Joan suite & were very comfortable :) Sue and Issy were both very welcoming and Sue passed on lots of recommendations for sightseeing during the day. Breakfasts were delicious each morning, and the bed was very comfortable. The suite, being the smallest available, is still ample for a couple with a two seater... More

Sue has a gorgeous B&B here, absolutely stunning rooms and gardens with spa bathroom. The room is cosy and has luxurious bedding, furniture, pillows and blankets. Perfect for a romantic weekend. Close to town, where there is plenty to see and do. Sue's breakfasts are delicious and her hospitality is wonderful.
