My husband and I stayed at The Collingwood for 2 nights in February, and we couldn't have been happier with it. I had booked our stay based on tripadvisor reviews, and we were not disappointed. The rooms are beautiful, and our bed and linens were so comfortable. The food at the continental style breakfast was delicious and of the best quality - very memorable. Best of all though, were Tim and Rachael, who were such wonderful hosts, offering great restaurant recommendations and lots of help with directions, travel plans, etc. Two of our best dining experiences while were were in Australia were suggestions from Tim, including one that was in Melbourne, where were were heading later in our journey. There was a huge rainfall the second night we were in town, and Tim was even so thoughtful as to make sure that we were taken care of for dinner, even going so far as to offer to make us dinner that evening, as we hadn't rented a car for our stay. The Collingwood was without a doubt the best accommodation we experienced during our 2 weeks in Australia, and Paddington was also one of the highlights of our trip.
