My friend got married at Goldston House over the weekend, and while the bride had a wonderful day, the entire place disgusted me and the rest of the bridal party. The manager who looked after us did not wear shoes the enitre time, including during the wedding ceremony and whilst cooking and serving us breakfast, and was obviously not wearing...

We stayed at the Goldston Cottage next to Goldston House and could not have wished for more. This is a quiet two bedroom cottage that is fully furnished and includes a kitchen and laundry. It is clean, cosy, economical and just what we were looking for. Unlike the B & B next door there is no breakfast or room service...

Goldston House is a lovely old Queenslander with well appointed rooms including in our room a sitting room and large bathroom with an enormous claw footed bath. The room was spotlessly clean, the bed was comfortable and the gardens were lovely. But their number one asset is the manager and chef, Deborah. She is warm and welcoming, very professional and...

The house is beautifully decorated in a Victoriana style that is clean, tasteful and homely. There is a varied choice of pillows, delightful touches such as home made biscuits in your room. Everything is lovely and fresh. The lounge is like stepping back into 1855, so authentic, books, magazines and dvd's galore for the modern touches. We wish we could...

We totally agree with the reviews posted. Stayed there just for 1 night to break up a long trip. Deborah was VERY friendly, rooms all lovely decorated and clean, very quiet place. FREE WLAN was great!! Had an incredibly delicious breakfast - all home made and freshly cooked. Very good value for money.

We stayed at Goldston House while visiting relatives in the area. The location is central and the accommodation is spacious and very comfortable.

We stayed here for one night (just to break up a long drive). I picked this place as a reason to stop after reading about it on trip advisor; I was not disappointed!

I found this fantastic B&B in Rockhampton just by googling Rockhampton, and what a find it was. Rockhampton seems to be full of motels, but this was something different.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Built in 1865, Goldston House B&B offers centrally located luxury accommodation. An historic home with all the comforts of a luxury hotel. Perfect for business or leisure. This family run gem has an air of historical elegance expertly blended with five star luxury. Set in a large, lush private garden guests can retreat from the world and relax. Perfect for a weekend getaway or a haven from a busy day at work. Each of our three stunningly appointed rooms has its own unique style and comes complete with private en-suite bathroom and modern luxuries to make your stay comfortable and indulgent. We have a limited number of rollaway beds and highchairs to accommodate families or groups travelling together so please inquire about how we can best accommodate you. A full gourmet breakfast made to order from a selection of your favourites and is served daily by our resident chef. Baked fresh daily our homemade bread, jams and fruit compotes adorn the breakfast buffet for those looking for a lighter option. Also available is Goldston Cottage, a high set, two bedroom, self contained cottage located next to Goldston House. Fitted out with a beautiful modern kitchen and bathroom, air conditioning and plenty of space, this is the perfect option for families or those who are in the area for an extended stay and want a comfortable haven that they can call home for the duration. Complimentary, covered, off street parking is provided for all suites, entry is via Derby Street and our circular drive makes for easy access at all times. The location of Goldston House is about as good as it gets. Delightfully calm and quite within its walls it is hard to believe we are just two blocks from the Railway in one direction and from the Highway in another, and a pleasant ten-minute walk to the CBD and great restaurants. Whether you are passing through or here for a while there's no reason you shouldn't stay in luxury. ... more   less
