Albertine's of Beechworth ought to be on the list of the best B & Bs in the world! The hosts, Judi and Owen, operate an amazing, luxurious, immaculate, comfortable and most beautiful home, surrounded by a tranquil garden. The location is brilliant, being a short walk to Beechworth's main street and only a few metres from the Murray to Mountains Rail/Bike Trail.
Judi and Owen gave us such a warm welcome and showered us with care and love, and we felt like we'd known them for years by the time we departed 3 days later. Nothing was too much trouble for them - it's all the little extras that make this place so special. We were celebrating our Ruby Wedding Anniversary during our stay, and a gorgeous box of chocolates and anniversary congratulations awaited our arrival.
The interior decor of every room, but especially the dining room and lounges, is exquisite and done with such expertise and flair. The large peaceful garden also contains superb statues, water features, interesting metal art works - both house and garden are a delight. We stayed in Suite 5 which was very spacious, and contained bedroom, sitting room and huge bathroom - bed, lounge and chairs so comfortable, with excellent lighting and heating (under floor in the bathroom). The bed linen is perfect.
There is such a friendly atmosphere in the household and we loved the communal leisurely breakfasts, and chatter with fellow travelers at breakfasts. The gourmet breakfasts which Judi and Owen serve up far surpass many of the breakfasts on offer at some the world's 5* hotels we've stayed at over the years.
We had 3 memorable bike rides also on the Murray to Mountains Rail/Bike Trails; we experienced fine dining in Beechworth and visited 3 excellent wineries in the region.
Judi and Owen, we will definitely be back again to enjoy your hospitality. We had a wonderful 3 night stay and were overwhelmed by your kindness.
