“Attention to detail was excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

We were very impressed with our overnight stay in the Edwardian Room on 16 Aug. The hosts were fantastic and very obliging; the property is presented better than online photos can depict. Attention to detail from every aspect of the room itself, to our fantastic breakfast with all the "homemade" accompaniments and personal touches made us feel very spoilt. There were no other guests on our night, but I can imagine staying there with friends/family would also be a lovely experience to share. And as others have mentioned, the homemade granola is a mouth watering memory and a recipe my husband insists I track down!
For anyone dining in Oxford Street this is a very convenient location to stay.

This is a fabulous B&B in a wonderful location, so close to the city on the rivercat and Bulimba's restaurant strip a 10 minute walk away. Our bed is comfy and we slept very well. Breakfast is excellent with wonderful poached eggs and home made granola. Kate and Neil are wonderful hosts and were ready to help with whatever we needed. Afternoon tea was very naughty but a very welcome treat.

Room Tip: Each room has its own theme. We chose the French room which has a lovely brass bed and suited us wel...

I can't rave about this place enough!
Mum and dad had a lovely stay, the beds were like clouds and the food was divine. I was able to join mum and dad every morning for breakfast and everything was absolutely delicious! I loved the little details like yummy lemon cake and choccies in the room every day, having Kate help you plan your days with her extensive knowledge on Brisbane's finest, enjoying the intricately-made antique furniture and glassware... You will be blown away by the whole experience at Number 12 B&B.

Thank you Kate & Neil for making us all feel so welcome, for feeding our little bellies to the brim and for going above and beyond in everything that you do.
Your silver service hospitality and beautiful federation style B&B was an absolute gem to find.
It was lovely to meet you both and make some new friends in my area!
Thank you again,

We recently had the pleasure of an overnight stay at No. 12. Hospitality, cleanliness and attention to detail are second to none. Hosts Kate and Neil are a lovely, down to earth couple - attentive without being intrusive. Afternoon tea on arrival and brekkie the following morning were amazing. This gorgeous B & B is a delight to the senses - you'll want for nothing. We can't wait to stay again. Amanda & Phillip.

Our stay in Brisbane with Kate was excellent. The breakfast was wonderful with freshly baked muffins. The rooms are nicely decorated and immaculate. We would recommend everyone travelling to Brisbane to stay here in this typical Queenslander House.

My husband and I stayed 1 night at Number 12 and had such a wonderful stay! Breakfast was delicious and the hospitality was warm and inviting. It's located about a 10 minute walk from the bustling Oxford street with great restaurants and is only a few minutes drive from he CBD. Would recommend hits b&b to anyone.
