I have been visiting Beechworth for many years and The Rose Cottage is my absolute favourite place to stay. This is an historic property and the decor and trappings are true Victoriana, which adds to a sense of literally stepping back in time. This fussy and fun kaleidoscope of color may not be to everyone's taste, but there is plenty to see among the knick-knacks, antique furniture and beautifully ornate oil lamps. The B&B has only four rooms, each with its distinct 19th century charm, and all have similarly themed ensuite. The brass beds are elegant originals, with modern mattresses that are fabulously soft and comfortable - if one could imagine sleeping on a cloud, it would be like this! The cooked breakfast is hearty and the tranquil gardens are a delight to explore or just sit quietly and simply enjoy. Situated in the heart of beautiful Beechworth, you are just steps from the historic streetscapes and shops. Hosts Tony and Lyn are warm and welcoming, and happy to share local knowledge to ensure you will enjoy the best that Beechworth has to offer. Brilliant value for money, The Rose Cottage really is a delightful and utterly charming gem of yesteryear. Hint: Book early to avoid disappointment because it is a firm favourite with return visitors (and that's always a good sign!).
