“Quiet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2012

What a beautiful weekend we had 2 nites one in the Maroccan suit and the 2nd African nights, we were woken up each morning by a fresh breakfast in bed ( by our selected time ) which was Devine and off to the markets to spoil our kids we left at home lol
Penny was a beautiful host the rooms were like we were in another country perfect rite down to the fire place n of course the spa which we enjoyed after big adventures day.
Looking forward to coming back again soon.

Room Tip: Moroccan was my fav waking up to sunrise with a friendly wallaby.

My husband and I had two nights accommodation in the African Room while touring the Atherton Tablelands. Gumtree on Gillies really is a lovely place to stay! The room was decorated with authentic east African handicrafts (we were able to swap east Africa stories with Penny having also lived there!) and was spacious and immaculately clean.
The breakfasts - we had all 4 between us over the two days - were delicious and filling.
Penny had lots of good suggestions for touring and was a terrific host - there when we needed her but never invading our privacy.
We heartily recommend this B&B!

Had a lovely night away with my husband sans kids! We stayed in the Moroccan Room. Very authentic feeling. Loved that we could watch "Casablanca" from our bed. The room was beautifully decorated with Moroccan furniture. The spa bath was divine. You definitely will not starve with the delicious breakfast! We couldn't get through it all! We were here 8 years ago and believe this time it was even better! Highly recommended.

My husband and I stayed in the Moroccan Suite for our Wedding night and we were so impressed with the ambience and attention to detail that Penny and Jorg had put into the room. Everything was perfect. We loved having the port and chocolate in the spa bath after a very exhausting but wonderful day. We also enjoyed walking around the property in the morning and eating fresh mandarins off the trees. The breakfast was delicious as well. We will definitely return.

Room Tip: Just choose your favourite country/decor style. The suite was extremely spacious and so was the bat...

Great place very spacious rooms (Australian room) friendly hosts wonderful breakfast lovely views and just a short work into town to the restaurants for dinner. You coudn't ask for anything better even the cat made you feel welcome and at home.

Room Tip: Australian room is the most secluded however i think all rooms would be great

We had a fabulous two-night stay in August. The Australian room was wonderful - far more space than we needed, comfy bed, huge spa bath and breakfasts served in our room. It was peaceful and secluded (but not too far from Yungaburra). Free local telephone calls and internet were a lovely touch.
If it wasn't so far from UK I would book us in for another couple of nights before Christmas.

Thank you for a great place to stay.

Ann and Andy

We really enjoyed our stay with Penny and Jorg, they were excellent hosts, nothing was too much trouble. The Egyptian room was very spacious, big spa and great open fireplace. Its an easy walk into town and a great base to explore the Tablelands from. We would recommend this to anyone.
