“A B&B with a huge difference '2012 Excellence Award' winner”
Reviewed 6 November 2012

Delicious Meals, clean/spacious room, service & location.
Stayed at Villa Cavour for 7 unforgettable days!
Pt Vernon is residential, wide streets, quiet, B&B short walk to Esplanade. Excellent morning walks well shaded areas along the walks with plenty of amenities for BBQ, fishing & relaxation in park areas & beaches. Easy short drive to Hervey Bay Pier, Marina.
Room Serviced daily. Although air-conditioned, we never used it as room was airy & breezes plentiful. Ensuite, kingsize bed, fridge, kettle & complimentary tea/coffee/chocolates, TV DVD player, ample wardrobe. Room opens to verandah where Mara served us our cooked breakfast & coffee every morning whilst we enjoyed the bird life. Swimming pool. Glimpses of bay through trees from verandah.
We had planned to have evening meals in local restaurants but after 1st evening experiencing Rocco's gourmet fine Italian cuisine, we decided to book all our evening meals & delicious desserts prepared by Rocco & were never disappointed. Evening meals were served in the pleasant & spacious lounge/dining room downstairs.
Free: Wi-fi (so we kept our family informed of our wonderful daily experience) & DVD's from B&B library. Bookings for nearby tours like Whale watching & Fraser Is were made by Mara in our behalf with pickup/drop off to and from B&B.
Mara & Rocco spoiled us with attention to detail & fantastic cuisine. Look forward to another stay to continue enjoying not only our fine accommodation but excellent cuisine.
Restaurant Tip: Rocco's fine Italian cuisine is a must to any guest.

I recommend the cooking class, so much to learn and experience... the flavours and the wine. Rooms were simple and elegant and lovely. Stayed with the girls but it would be a nice place to go with your partner:)

We recently had a stay at the Villa Cavour Bed and Breakfast and had a cooking class. This was the highlight of our week stay in Hervey Bay... the accommodation is outstanding... from the king size bed which was so comfy to the lovely deck and other finishing touches ... awesome. Mara and Rocco were wonderful hosts and Rocco was a great chef teaching us how to make our own pasta and then enjoying the fruits of our labour that night. Mara cooked us a delicious breakfast in the morning before we set off for our day's adventures... will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: We had the back room which was lovely and private and with a beautiful view over the pool and BBQ ar...

I stayed here with my best friend for two nights as a base for a whale watching trip. Mara was a wonderful host and made us feel very welcome. The cooked breakfast was to die for and the flexibility that is offered with the time you are able to book for breakfast meant we were able to get away early on our whale watch day but were able to sleep in on the second day and eat a bit later. The accommodation was very comfortable and modern.
I am planning to come back sometime with my husband and join in with a cooking class with Rocco.

Mara and Rocco are amazing hosts. I booked the Italian cooking class with 5 other colleagues to enjoy a Friday night farewell dinner and team activity. We simply had the BEST evening.
From the moment we arrived, Mara made us feel very welcome, taking us on a tour of her beautiful property , we ended up in the kitchen where Rocco was awaiting us in his crisp white chef's uniform! The kitchen was very warm and welcoming, fitted out on a commercial basis , one immediately new this was serious business!
The six of us proceeded to learn how to make various pastas using the dough simply prepared. The first was calles "bling" tiny pasta that was served later with a light parmesan sauce and it was simply the best thing I had tasted for ages! Rocco explained all the different types, fillings, we tasted bits and pieces, until it was all prepared. We all had a chance to cut , press, poke, make various shapes such as tortellini, ravioli etc.
We then sat down to eat at the dinner table and Mara served us fabulous Italian white wine from Piedmont (Favorita) -This was followed by a Barbera red which had a hint of sparkle - delicious! We ate 4 different pasta courses with varying sauces cooked by Rocco. I couldn't believe that it was our group who had actually made the pasta and here we were enjoying it (granted we didnt make the fillings or sauce, we had help from our expert Italian chef!).
Mara diligently looked after us throughout the evening, topping up our wine, chatting and talking about Italy. The dessert was drop dead "to die for" chocolate sponge with Italian icecream homemade by Rocco drowned in a decadent chocolate sauce with a hint of something alcoholic, it was a wonderful way to finish of a fabulous meal. This was an amazing experience and I felt I had been transported to Italy. The Italian cooking school is available for small groups and I would recommend booking one of Villa Cavour's special packages and stay the night, it is great value for money and a truly memorable experience. You can choose from a variety of menus, but we couldn't go past the Pasta school. HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend this for couples, small groups, birthday parties and family reunions. I will be back for sure! Can't wait.

Room Tip: Downstairs room for older people. Upstairs for couples who want a bit more privacy. Each room has...

Fantastic time here. Mara the host was very friendly and helpful. She will book any trips on your behalf. Although it is a b&b, they will cook an evening meal..... Very good if you don't want to drive. Tell them by 4:30 what you would like for dinner and they will cook it for you... We were late coming back from fraser island, but they still managed to cook a delicious carbonara.

This is an ideal place for whale watch and fraser island.

Want to eat.... Go to. Coast.... Brilliant food to share

And hervey bay is the place to whale watch

Rooms are great, breakfast a choice of hot cooked or continental.... Both lovely

My wife and I booked for two nights including the cooking class with Rocco, which was a "steep learning curve" especially trying to make tortellini with clumsy fingers, but we succeeded and were able to dine on our four different pastas, with individual sauces. Very tasty!
Accommodation is very comfortable and the excellent breakfast on the balcony served by Mara made for a great experience.
Rocco is quite a fisherman. He bagged a 14kg yellowfin tuna from the end of the Hervey Bay wharf, early one morning.
We'll be back.

Room Tip: All three rooms are equal in quality and aspect with views to Fraser Island.
