“Amazing break for you and your pets”
Reviewed 9 January 2014

All I can do is reinforce the rave reviews about Must Love Dogs B&B. The accommodation is not just dog friendly, it has been specifically designed to ensure that you and your furry friends have a great experience. I was also defeated by the huge breakfasts which are prepared with love and care by Charlie & Chris. The rooms are very comfortable and perfect for kicking back with a glass of wine after a hard day visiting the local vineyards. The B&B is within easy walking distance to the town so no need to worry about driving when you're ready for dinner or keen on having a few drinks at the pub. The supermarket is also handy and has all the basics for you and your pets as well as a fabulous selection of local wine. Highly recommended without hesitation.

Room Tip: The Chandelier Suite is the main part of the original house and worth a stay for some old world char...

We stayed here with our son and of course our dog. Chris and Charles were very welcoming and super friendly. Our hosts are amazing people who have a great life story with much to admire. The Garden Suite was lovely. Very clean with all that you need, tea/coffee making, lots of towels etc, We also enjoyed the pool and sitting outside. The breakfast was excellent, lots of choice with nothing too much trouble. Our dog was very happy and settled here. We all had a wonderful holiday and would higlhy receommend staying here.

We had a fantastic holiday at this awesome B & B, Chris & Charles are beautiful people & love what they do, we appreciate being so well looked after. This was a return trip for us & we enjoyed breakfast outside & the pool; thanks for the loan of your lap dog & egg chair. It was great to enjoy a beautiful evening meal there too - a must do - excellent hosts. Thanks for a relaxing time, see you again. Cheers K,M & O

We stayed here last year for two nights over what must have been the hottest weekend in Rutherglen. We had use of the pool which was great. Chris was absolutely fantastic looking after and making sure our puggies did not overheat! Watch out for the massive brekkies which my partner devoured however I could def not finish. The bed was lovely and comfortable and we would def look to come back this year! Sorry it took so long for me to post :)

Thanks again Chris for sending me the photos.

We have just returned home after seven wonderful nights at Must Love Dogs B&B. Well, where do I start?? Chris & Charlie are the most beautiful people, they not only made us feel welcome, they made us feel very much at home, us and our 'kids', Ruby and Wilbur.

Both Chris & Charlie are very knowledgeable about the local and surrounding area's, they recommend great places for food and wine, Charlie will take you on a winery tour to the greatest wineries and give you a guided tour of the local attractions.

The property is tastefully decorated and has been lovingly restored by these wonderful people who are not only your hosts, they become your friends. Charlie's breakfasts are "to die for", it's a hard choice choosing what to have as they are all so good.

They made our stay one so memorable, both Chris and Charlie can tell they greatest stories as they've owned and operated many businesses over the years, they truly are "one of a kind".

I can't speak highly enough of these people and their lovely B&B, we had a relaxing, fun, enjoyable experience and have already booked to return for another pleasant holiday.

We felt so welcomed into their home and our dogs were also treated like royalty, nothing was to much trouble for either Chris or Charlie. You can see this is not a job to them, they love what they do and take much pride and joy from every aspect of their 'job'.

The Garden Suite in which we stayed was so delightfully decorated, it is comfortable, affordable and very homely, the property and the way they operate their business is a credit to them both.

We can't wait to return for our Easter holiday and look forward to spending time with you both Chris & Charlie.

Thank you both from the bottom of our hearts.

Until we meet again, Kerryn, Pete, Ruby & Wilbur.

We stayed at MLD for three nights just after Christmas with our two dogs Pumpkin the dachshund and Zak the schnauzer. What a fantastic, welcoming place. Our hosts Christine and Charles were hospitality and friendliness exemplified. They not only tolerate dogs, they make sure they have a fantastic holiday too. Doggy (and human ) treats are waiting on arrival and nice touches such as a decanter of local Rutheglen muscat are offered. The accomodation has all you could want including a lovely swimming pool. Breakfasts are superb whether it is bacon and eggs, eggs benedict with smoked salmon or Charlie's sumptuous pancakes. Charlie and Chris are also willing to make lunches and dinners with prior notice and Charlie is also on hand to take guests on a private winery tour if desired. All in all, a wonderful holiday. We have already booked our return trip!!! Could not recommend it highly enough.
Peter, Mark, Zak and Pumpkin.

We stayed with Chris and Charles for five nights including Christmas and Boxing Day. We had the Garden Suite. The accommodation is superior in terms of cleanliness and furnishings, yet at the same time very comfortable and homely. The treats for the humans and of course, Phoebe the pooch were greatly welcomed on our arrival. The shaded garden area was perfect for our ageing pooch and ourselves on a hot summrs day. There was nothing we needed to ask for, as everything we required was provided, right down to towels for the pooch. Chris is a beautiful host and like Charles, is very knowledgeable about the area. Even a request for a picnic lunch on Christmas Day was no problem at all and there was more than enough lovely prepared food for us to enjoy lunch by the Murray River. Charles is a 'Master of Breakfasts' - whatever you request it seems will be provided for your palette. The accommodation is in a beautiful part of Rutherglen and the swimming pool and spa are tops and we used this every day. It is obvious that a lot of planning, hard work, experience and love went into the making of Must Love Dogs Bed and Breakfast. The thing that stood out was how much Chris and Charles enjoy what they do. We have already recommended Must Love Dogs Bed and Breakfast to our friends who have dogs and we will most definitely go back there. Sue, Dave & Phoebe

Room Tip: We had the Garden Suite - beautiful shaded garden area to keep cool.
