Ashrowan Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #3 of 5 Berrima B&B and Inns
Reviewed 30 March 2012

Thank you Susan and Phillip for a wonderful stay. We stayed in the Gardeners Retreat which had a separate sitting room. It was like stepping back in time with a little bit of Tuscany.
Susan and Phillip are wonderful hosts who are there if you need them but completely unobtruvise. Everything was just as it should be, clean, welcoming, warm and cozy. Phillip made sure there was always enough wood for the fire, breakfast was beautiful, there was an extensive library of books, dvd's and cd's if you needed them. It was so quiet, even though it was a very windy night we did not hear a thing. We loved it, it was just the way a B&B should be and within walking distance of the beautiful town of Berrima and top restuarants, make sure you check out Harpers Mansion if you are staying, it is worth the entry fee to see a little bit of our Australian history.

Room Tip: All the rooms are beautiful, the Gardens Retreat has its own sitting room but the other two rooms al...

The Gardener's Retreat was excellent and having a separate lounge with a fireplace was a wonderful place to sit and read the Saturday papers, have a glass or two to sparkling prior to wandering out for dinner and to sip a glass of port when we returned.
The ambiance of Ashrowan was just beautiful, the decor, the collectibles just made it.. Susan and Phillip were wonderful hosts and made you feel very welcome in their home. We will not hesitate to return...

As it was raining when we arrived, we were greeted with susan who came out with a umberalla for us. I immediately felt special. Our room was the tower and just everything was perfect. Comfortable bed and great view from our window. Amenties were exceptional. Pure luxury. We were totally left alone and enjoyed the peacefulness. Breakfast was excellent and the only time we saw other guests. It was so homely and the fire created a great atmosphere in the evenings. We were made so welcome and susan made the bookings for us each night for Dinner. We were in walking distance to everything in Berrima. By far the best place I have ever stayed and I can't wait to have the opportunity to stay again.

Ashrowan is at the top end by price for a B&B. However, it is a calm, lovely house where you would like to move in and stay. The rooms and bathrooms are stylish, comfortable and very clean. The shared space is warm and welcoming, with a fire, tons of books to read, music to play and comfortable sofas on which to waste an hour or three. The terrace and garden carry this theme on outside. Breakfast is delectable. Best of all, in a calm and understated way, the hosts make you feel welcome and at home, like welcome family guests.

If you're looking for a magical experience for you and your partner look no further. With Nanna looking after the kids (worth the drive from Melbourne alone) we arrived at Ashrowan just before New Years. It was a relaxing experience from day one. We stayed in the Gardeners Retreat which was both magnificent and private. The breakfasts were indescribable with no expense spared, and different each day. Our hosts (Susan & Phillip) were charming and were there when you needed them with nothing being too much trouble. The home has a main living area with a lovely fireplace should you feel like the company of others and there are some lovely restaurants within walking distance. This property would suit the more discerning traveller and well worth every cent, thank you again Susan & Phillip. We'll get back there one of these days. P&L

If you want tranquility and comfort in a charming country house, Ashrowan is the place for you. Susan and Philip are gracious and unobtrusive hosts, with Susan preparing beautiful breakfasts each morning. Philip's paintings can be seen hanging in the loungerooms, and Susan's choice of decor is elegant. Ashrowan overlooks the Wingecarribee River and is conveniently situated within a short walking distance of restaurants and other places of interest in Berrima. Susan is willing to make restaurant bookings, and also supply information on the local area. If the weather is cold and wet (as it was for us) the cosy lounge chairs in front of the fire are very inviting. Philip faithfully stokes the fires to maintain the cosiness for his guests. There are three suites all of which have wonderful views. We stayed in The Gardeners Retreat, which resembles a small colonial cottage with French doors which open out onto a private verandah. It included an ensuite, with shower, wc and vanity. The queen sized bed was very comfortable, with quality bedlinen.

I highly recommend Ashrowan.
