“This has to be Rockhampton's best accommodation”
Reviewed 6 May 2013 via mobile

The breakfast was healthy delicious and pretty to the eye, as is every aspect of this lovely old Queenslander. The hosts Stan and Marion care about their guests and make you feel very welcome in their beautiful home.

My husband & I stayed here when we were visiting friends in Rockhampton a couple of weeks ago. The rooms were spacious and very well appointed, lovely wide verandas on which to relax and enjoy breakfast. When the Rockhampton heat gets too much there is also a delightful lounge room or refreshing pool in which to while away the time.
The full breakfast was plentiful and quite delicious. They catered very well for my gluten intolerance also. We would definately stay at Athelstane House again.

Thank you for your heartly welcome, the lovely stay and the excellent breakfast. The furnitures and the decoration are chosen with a very nice taste.
We especially appreciated your advices to visit the zoo at koala's feed time and the city.

Simply FANTASTIC - everything was set up in such a wonderful way. Breakfast was simply gorgeous and delightful with excellent coffee - it was one of the best accommodation we ever stayed during the trip!

We stayed in the Athelstane House during our three-week trip along the east coast of Australia and were completely blown away by the lovely interior and the friendly owners. This is way more than "just" a B&B, it was a trip back in time in Rockhampton. The complete house and all furniture was "frozen in time" and it feels 100 years ago (without having to miss any of the modern luxuries). The breakfast was served outside on the veranda, perfect. We can highly recommend it!

A beautiful house, lovely and attentive hosts, gorgeous breakfasts... a big comfortable bed, a wonderfully appointed bathroom, everything fresh and clean... we loved our stay and will absolutely be coming back again sometime... perhaps in summer so we can use the pool!!
