“Fantastic, beautiful place and great hosts!”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

We had a lovely time, Chris and Charles have thought of everything. You are made to feel so welcome you feel like you have known them forever. The bed was oh so comfortable and the standard of the breakfast was better than any we have had staying in some of the top hotels. We had no hesitation in going out and leaving Lexi, knowing that geniune dog lovers were there to keep an eye on her for us. All in all a great place to stay particulary if you don't like leaving your pet in kennels. We will be going back and sooner than later.

We have just stayed for two nights with our kids (dogs), from arriving to sadly leaving we were welcomed in a way that will last forever in our memories. Chris & Charles (& Bob) are the Australian version of Sybil and Basil. Beautiful people & the best hosts we have had the pleasure to stay with in all our travels.
Thank you for making our weekend a relaxing & telling us your very funny stories of live.
Breaky was divine & hanging out to come back already to try your delicious dinner
Thank you also for sitting with the kids during the thunderstorm whilst we were out and about
kindest regards
Deb, Sean & the kids :-)

Quaint place to stay. Chris & Charles are adorable hosts and can't do enough for you. We felt totally spoiled as did Isla our golden retriever. Chandleir suite spacious, comfortable and nice private outdoor area which Isla loved. Breakfast & dinner first class. Well recommended

Room Tip: Did not see the other suite but chandelier suite was very spacious and ideal with a large dog

Slipped up to Rutherglen for a quick two day break, and were greeted warmly by Charles and Chris. The suits comfortable and have everything needed for a relaxing stay in the region. Breakfasts were magnificent, and the advice on local wineries was appreciated.

We traveled without dogs, and I would readily recommend this lovely B&B to anyone, with or without pets.

I booked this property through AirBnB.

My wife and I along with our furry child Golden Retriever Bessie re visited Must Love Dogs recently. Charles and Chris are the consumate hosts, always up for a chat and just lovely people. They have a fascinating history in the hospitality business, be sure to check out their photo album. Charles and Chris can also answer all your questions regarding local places of interests, including the many excellent wineries. Make sure you have at least one dinner in house, Charles turns out amazing mains (try the mouth wateringly soft eye filet) and Chris is the dessert maestro, her deconstructed apple pie was divine! Not to mention the home baked treats including dog bikkies on arrival. We really appreciated the airconditioning on this trip due to the heat and when we've visited in winter the gas fireplace is great, Bessie loves laying in front of it. Do yourself a favour, if you're travelling in the area with a dog do not miss the opportunity to stop in at Must Love Dogs. We have stayed at many dog friendly places but Must Love Dogs is truly dog friendly. Keep up the great work Charles and Chris and see you again soon!

Just stayed two nights at "Must Love Dogs b&b", absolutely lovely stay. Summery 41 degrees outside but lovely and cool inside. Charming hosts, Chris and Charles. The bed was comfortable. Charles cooked us a magnificent English Breakfast day one then his traditional mouth watering pancakes day two. The dogs were welcomed with some treats on arrival. They had as much fun as us. Worn out exploring the local wineries so a quick dip in the pool took care of that. We will be back in winter for another visit. Thanks Chris and Charles.

Room Tip: Both rooms are nice, Chandelier suite bigger but both are big enough.
