“Wonderful hosts running a beautiful B&B”
Reviewed 9 May 2012 via mobile

We stayed at Barnsley House at the start of a 10 day cycling holiday, and the only problem with it is that everywhere else we stayed wasn't as good. There are many elements of Barnsley House worth praise - comfortable bed, beautiful furnishings, fine garden, excellent breakfast, the gorgeous conservatory, welcome afternoon tea, good value for money - but what made it really special was the warm welcome provided by owners Rod and Barry. They are attentive and friendly without being overbearing, or intruding on your privacy. We highly recommend this property.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Barnsley House. The Elizabeth Retreat room was beautiful. The open fire crackling away in the evening was lovely and the spa bath proved perfect following our bike ride on the rail trail. Our hosts Rod and Barry were fantastic, providing us with a sumptuous hot breakfast each morning and giving us with all the information we needed to make our visit to Beechworth a success. The conservatory was the perfect spot to capture the northern sunshine and to enjoy a scrumptious afternoon tea. The presentation of a birthday cake was unexpected, so thoughtful, but seemingly typical of Rod and Barry's desire that their guests enjoy their stay at Barnsley House........and we did!

What a great experience.
Our room was immaculate, open fireplace, a giant spa in the bathroom, quiet, sunny, I could go on!
There are different rooms to relax in, the conservatory overlooking one of the gardens is a must for the complementary welcoming afternoon tea/coffee. Breakfast was generous, fresh and hot.
The hosts, Rod and Barry make the place perfect.
Highly, highly recommended.

My first visit to Barnsley House was a wonderful experience. the others in our Group had been before and told me how good it was and I can now agree. We spent 3 nights over the Australia Day long weekend and were very pleased with the comfort and hospitality provided by Rod and barry. We were greeted on arrival with a lovely afternoon tea and made to feel very welcome for the whole weekend. It was great coming back from day trips around the Beechworth area , relaxing in the observatory room over a glass of wine with our hosts. Breakfast each day was also a highlight. A great place to relax and enjoy the charms of Beechworth.

Room Tip: All rooms are equally good

What a great 3 nights we had with 4 other couples over the New Year. Barry & Rod were brilliant hosts, from the moment they welcomed us to their charming house. Beautifully appointed, with the tiniest detail attended to. The air-conditioned room was so comfortable, the king size bed a joy to sleep in. Easy walking distance to the town centre, shops, cafes, restaurants, hotels. The final night BBQ, with the enthusiastic involvement of our hosts, was a highlight. We will most certainly enjoy further stays at Barnsley House.

Room Tip: Any of the rooms great.

My husband & I and 3 couples (all close friends) spent 3 nights at this delightful & professionally hosted B&B. Rod & Barry sure know their 'stuff', from recommending tourist opportunities, making & confirming bookings, having a beautifully prepared cooked breakfast ready for us every morning with plenty of choice, mingling with guests, and to top it off creating a spectacular home baked afternoon tea on arrival to help celebrate my husbands special occasion. All of this was accomplished with flair & panach, & at no time was anything too much trouble. The beds were very comfortable as were our rooms, with everything we could need provided. Character abounds in this beautiful & memorable establishment.

My boyfriend and I stayed in the Elizabeth Retreat at Barnsley House for 1 night and were really impressed! Barnsley House is only a short drive away from the centre of Beechworth. The house is charming, with distinctive Victorian style decor and a beautiful terraced garden. The Elizabeth Retreat had everything we could ask for – a fridge, TV with an inbuilt DVD player, air-conditioning, a log fire, and a large en-suite bathroom with a double spa. The fluffy dressing gowns, slippers and complimentary chocolates and biscuits provided in the room were a nice touch. A full breakfast consisting of a large hot meal and a light continental breakfast was included in the tariff. The breakfast was delicious and extremely generous! Our only (minor) concern was no complimentary afternoon tea was served between 3 and 4 pm (as advertised on Barnsley House’s website). We also felt the tariff of $189 was a little high compared to similar B&Bs in the area. Nevertheless, we would highly recommend Barnsley House.

Dear VictoriaW
Thank you for your positive reviewon our property and we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. We are sorry you did not get to share in afternoon tea with us..it is written in the guest directory that it is available and you could have asked for this..maybe you were hurrying to get to see the area and went straight out, some guests do and we appreciate this. Regarding the tariff, our midweek tariffs are a great saving for guests and are in the midprice range of the local B&B's...a one night stay will always be a little dearer than a 2 or 3 night stay where we offer great savings for guests, and you did choose the dearest retreat! But we would love to see you back again to enjoy another stay with us. Kind regards Rod and Barry
