Sonja's Bed & Breakfast
Reviewed 4 January 2013

Had the pleasure of staying at this B&B for 2 nights just gone. Although Sonja was away her understudy Heather stepped in and did a fantastic job looking after us. She was very welcoming and nothing was a problem, it felt like we were staying with family. Breakfast was great and very filling and now she can cook great poached eaggs, so don't be afraid to ask for the hot breakfast. We stayed in the Sunset room, very basic furnishings, and very comfortable bed. Not sure who measured the position of the toilet, but it is close to the wall, but that adds the fun and challenge of Lightning Ridge lol.. Loved the place and would definitely recommend staying there and would stay there agiain should we get back to the ridge.

Reviewed 24 October 2009

Sonja’s is located a few blocks from the main street of Lightning Ridge in a quiet residential street. It is a small B&B with 4 different rooms. We stayed in the Miners room. We had a small room with a kitchenette(microwave and mini-fridge), table and two chairs, a bathroom with shower and toilet and a room with an extremely comfortable queen size bed, sofa, TV, DVD player and hanging space.

Reception was friendly. There was artwork throughout the common areas. Off street parking was available. A friendly dog and a cat live at the residence. The dog is kept mainly outside but does come into the house.

We found our two night stay here very comfortable and relaxing. It was a short drive to the Bore Baths and anywhere else you might want to go in and around Lightning Ridge. We stayed ‘room only’ so are unable to rate the breakfast part. There is a Super IGA in town where you can purchase any supplies you might need.

Of the 11 places we stayed at on this trip to northern NSW and southern Queensland we found Sonja’s B&B to be one of the best value. We would definitely stay there again.

There is plenty to see at Lightning Ridge so arrange to stay for more than one night. Floating in the Bore Bath at night under the stars is one of the best things I have done for a really long time. We found everybody there to be very friendly.

We recently stayed at Sonja's B&B in Lightning Ridge and wanted to write a review on it, but unfortunately it's not listed. However it's a great place to stay ! This little cottage is full of character, the rooms warm and tasteful, beds comfy, good breakfast. Would definitely stay again.
