Christine brings back a level of customer service that is lacking in many areas today. The immediate feeling of warmth and friendship surrounds you from the moment you walk through the door. It's obvious to see that years of hard work have gone into the facilities and the gardens which provides a picturesque setting for a quite moments reflection (while... More

Epic! That is the only way to describe Bishops Court, the very best B&B experience we have ever had. Five star rooms and facilities. Chris is not only a wonderful hostess but a supreme interior decorator and chef extrordenaire.

Christine is a superb host and her team is a credit to her. They made our journey along Route 66 on Friday night a unforgettable experience. The menu was amazing - right down to the cheese and cocktail onions protruding from the pineapple centrepieces. We loved the live music, the food and the cocktails. Overall a wonderful experience.

The standard of food, service, comfort , welcome and ambience are Olympian. Few country establishments can match this boutique hotel in all these points. It's the kind of retreat one expects to find in Europe, not in the Aussie bush.

We met Christine LeFevre, the owner, many years ago when we worked in the interior design industry and Christine has imbued this place with her exquisite taste and impeccable... More

This was our second stay this year - in fact we made a point of extending our trip just to include another stay at Bishops Court...it really is one of the best properties that we have found. The building was actually the early Bishop's Lodge or house before it was vacated & subsequently fell into disrepair. Christine took it on... More

Only 1 day into 2 night stay but this is dreamland. A superb building, magnificently and Tastefully fitted out. Bedrooms are beautiful and a choice of other lovely rooms to relax in, if not in the magnificent garden or verandah. Christine is a superb hostess and breakfast quality to die for. Spoil yourself and stay at Bishops Court.

Some years ago my wife and I read an article about Bishops Course in the Qantas magazine. It looked impressive and we thought that one day when "in the area" we should stay there. Well the opportunity came about recently. Unfortunately the stay was only one night. Bishops Court lived up to expectations. It is a beautifully maintained period house... More

Friends from Canberra travelled to Bishops Court for a surprise 50th birthday. Excellent venue, with delicious food that was served with real class and quality service! Dining room was warm and very well set up with excellent table settings that added to the whole evening .... Service & presentation was true silver service.
