Bed and breakfast close to Canberra?

By Jim Jones - 22 January 2013 15

I’ve been looking to take the missus to a bed and breakfast somewhere close by (preferably with a swank restaurant) and keen for some recommendations.

There appear to be any number of places around Bungendore, but they’re all self-rated, and the majority seem to have some pretty scathing reviews online.

What’s Your opinion?

Ms Thumper and I spent a couple of nights last spring in the Southern Highlands at Milton park.

Expensive yes, but absolutely wonderful old heritage building with superb grounds and gardens, a pool, spa, and an lovely old bar.

Completely luxurious and just wonderful.

David and Jenny Kilby’s B&B set up in the old train carriages is really good. Close enough to Murrumbateman to have dinner at Shaw’s, David will serve you a lovely breakfast and he’s a very entertaining and genial host. Browsing his memorabilia is a real highlight.

+1. The silver pillow makes a good change up every once in a while.

Thanks all! Got it.

Poetix – love the idea, but got a couple of small kids and we need to be close enough to get back in case of any problems (but far enough to consider it a getaway).

I found this a few months ago when the parents-in-law were visiting – looked good: http://www.stayz.com.au/59304

We stayed at The Globe Inn in Yass [http://www.theglobeinn.com.au/] a couple of years ago. Nice historic building, various options for meals around the town.

When it comes to digital radio, the sound is better, but the reception is worse than FM. More transmitters are required before I think digital radio will become widely used.

Thanks for keepin’ it real there dude. Most on-topic post so far in 2013. 🙂

There’s Schonegg or Redbrow both at Murrumbateman – with Poachers Pantry as a dining option

Oh yeah…+1.0E6 for Schonegg. I spent a very happy weekend there last year with my wife. Can’t recommend it highly enough for a local getaway from it all.

I have to stop posting on the iPad. It does nothing for my spelling credibility.

How about hiring a beach place for the weekend (or better sill, a couple of days during the week, if you can manage it) and taking a hamper of lovely things instead, and wine you usually wouldn’t buy?

After Straya Day it should become less crowded at the beaches.

Gooromon Park has what looks like nice accommodation. The chef from the restaurant appears on 666 a lot talking food. I can only vouch for their morning tea though.

Righty the winerys out around Hall and Murrumbateman. Spa treatments available as well I believe.

If you go there can you provide a review!

This probably doesn’t qualify as being close to Canberra but it would be worth your while. Amazing food and beautiful rooms. They do more traditional bed and breakfasts during the week. http://inthetaratory.wordpress.com/2013/01/10/sangoma-retreat/

Grazing has put together a list of suggestions for you, and of course, there’s your food option sorted as well.
