Reviewed 7 March 2011

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.

Perfect location. Thoughtful owners. Beautiful residence. The Collingwood is such a lovely place to be in every regard. Everything about it is boutique and personal. My girlfriend and I loved it.

My only disappointment was that we only got to stay one night!

Location was great and we dined at a lovely local restaurant recommended by the owner Tim who couldn't do enough to help. Our room was excellent and the bed was so comfortable it was a struggle getting out of it the next morning.

Will definately stay there again when we're back in Brisbane.

So you think that a Bed & Breakfast could not live up to the besy of the hotels. Let me tell you, fellow travellers, this surpasses all your hopes. 4 spacious bedrooms, all with ensuites, all with balconies (which can convert to shared), hosts in Tim & Rachel who not only committ but deliver and anticipate needs, a location in the inner suburb of Paddington - think the best of Queensland traditional housing, lots of bars and restaurants and quirky shopping, think ready access by bus to the City & the sports/entertainment areas, THINK THE COLLINGWOOD. And if like us you think thbe old style Bed & Breakfasts were something special, welcome back to the new standard of accommodation and service.

An absolutely inviting, warm and personal atmosphere welcomes you to this impeccably finished B&B. I would more than recommend this place, not just for the comfort and location, but for the host, Tim; one of the best hosts I have ever had the pleasure of knowing (and I've stayed in many, many places). I recommend to everyone wanting to go to Brisbane. Thank you and we will certainly be back!

Stayed here one night, booked at last-minute rates online. We were welcomed when we showed up by Tim, our very gracious host. This is a very small boutique B&B in a trendy suburb of Brisbane. The rooms are impeccable and better than any five-star hotel in Brisbane, with classy soft furnishings and all with their own ensuite and private verandah. Very fast complimentary wireless internet is a big plus. OK breakfast - cereal, toast with a good selection of cold meats, cheeses and fruits. Being former Brisbane locals with a car, getting around wasn't a problem but it could be tricky if you're from out of town and/or don't have a car. This property is down a side street and not really walking distance to the city. Overall, an amazing stay and we will definitely be back for longer!
