“Great B&B in Yungaburra”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 October 2013

This was a very comfortable B&B in a great location. The suite was large and private. the provided breakfast was simple but more than adequate, and the hosts were helpful and friendly. Yungaburra is a wonderful small town and this B&B is on a very quiet street. We were told where platypus might be - and we found 7 that evening!

I have stayed many times at The Gables. Each time I have been treated with utmost care, generosity and help. The place is clean, generous and comfortable. My whole extended family, as well as myself, will stay no where else when we go to the Tableands. Phil and Katy are generous and friendly hosts. Posy Thompson of Cairns, Edge Hill

This a much belated review, so may not be up-to-date. First of all I would urge all visitors of Tropical QLD to pay a visit to the lovely town of Yungaburra. It has an old-fashioned feel that is not so easy to find elsewhere. And the Gables B&B is the best choice as for accommodation. We stayed in the downstairs apartment, which was charming and complete with absolutely everything. The house is a typical Queenslander - very well kept with beautiful lush gardens. And the owner was absolutely lovely. Don't miss out.

Room Tip: We stayed in the downstairs apartment

We chose the room with a spa tub and the breakfast. We were so PLEASED with the accomdation. The place was very clean and very spacious. One of the great things we enjoyed was the breakfast was in the fridge for us. So we could eat it when we wanted. We walked to Peterson's Creek EARLY in the morning, returned to our room and had breakfast after watching the platapus. That is such a GREAT idea, I wish all B&Bs offered such service.
I would highly recommend this room.

Please note that this a review of the ground floor flat.
Good sized apartment with double bed in bedroom and sofa bed in lounge. The kitchenette has two hotplates, a small oven/grill, fridge, toaster and microwave. It's a bit dated but all in good condition. The self serve breakfast was a choice of three cereals, bread, milk and plenty of fresh fruit. Phil and Katie, the owners, are very friendly and one afternoon we came back to find a bowl of fresh strawberries waiting for us. The only thing lacking is some outdoor space in which to enjoy the warm evenings. We had a very comfortable stay and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Yungaburra.

We chose the room with a spa tub at this Bed and Breakfast for a party of three. The room was very cozy and the beds were extremely comfortable. There was also a loveseat and dining table with chairs. You had such amenities as a refrigerator, hot pot, press pot, utensils and even bath robes. Coffe and tea was provided. The bathroom is spacious, and the hot tub is relaxing. The room was a little small for three adults but is perfect for a couple. You do have to go out of the room and upstairs to get to the hot tub, but the owners told me that before I reserved the room. They also have a larger room with kitchnette and bathroom. The owners are warm and lovely people.

Fell into Yungaburra during a break in the Rugby World Cup, exhausted. Had a few small snifters at the local Hotel, great place, asked around and found the Gables.

Comfortable together place, run by Phil at Katie.
All we needed, comfortable bed, not messed around, food as and when, it was quiet and gave us the chance to recharge batteries. Very friendly, loved it would go back.

  • Liked — Comfortable Clean no fuss all mod cons
  • Disliked — Was like a home from home, great people great place.
  • Tips/Secrets — No frills, just the basics done well.
