We stopped at Mussel B&B for 3 nights from 12th Feb and it was the most beautiful well appointed B&B’s we have stopped at and we were so lucky when we chose this. We would certainly return here and stay longer as it was such a lovely setting with wonderful sub tropical gardens and streams running through it. The owners Chris and Paul were so friendly and helpful that it made our stay even more enjoyable. How often do you come across places like this? We stayed in the “Beachut Suite” and it was superb with a mezzanine floor where we used to have our morning tea sitting in the sun as it came up from across their property next to the guest wing. The morning breakfast was a superb selection of glorious food and home baking that started you off perfectly. Paul would deliver our “gourmet” breakfast on a tray to our outside deck in the morning, we decided after the first morning to have this in their garden and it was laid out on one of the several tables in the garden, what a start to the day this was. Part of our booking deal included a trip on Paul’s water taxi to Cathedral Cove and we really enjoyed this as it would have been $25 but was included in the booking.
Many thanks to Chris and Paul for making us feel so welcome, also for booking a table on our last night to the “Eggsentric café” just down the road. That was a very different café with super food and to be entertained at the end of the evening by the owner/chef, fabulous.
