Calderwood Hall Guest House
Ranked #1 of 1 Boston B&B and Inns
Reviewed 31 December 2011

My husband and I stayed over at Calderwood Hall en-route to the Midlands. We thought we would treat ourselves and booked into the Victorian Suite. What wonderful accommodation with a very comfortable 4 poster bed, antique and unusual furnishings, wooden floors, high pressed ceilings, sitting area with T.V., complimentary tea/coffee and biscuits. We had a view of the well maintained gardens and dam. This B&B offers clean, comfortable accommodation in tastefully decorated suites in the manor house i.e. Victorian Suite, Honeymoon Suite, Egyptian Suite etc... This is like living in a bygone era with stained glass windows, large wooden staircase, yellow-wood floors, beautiful pieces of antique furniture etc.. and so much history at Calderwood Hall. The rate included dinner, bed and breakfast, the breakfast was a buffet English breakfast served in the diningroom. We would definitely recommend this B&B, it was a real treat and if one does not want to stay in the manor house there are garden suites as well which would probably be more suitable for couples with children. Calderwood Hall is also a very popular wedding reception venue with their own garden chapel and separate reception/conference room.

Room Tip: All the suites in the manor house are lovely with the Victorian and Honeymoon suites having front ga...

calderwood1926, Owner at Calderwood Hall Guest House, responded to this reviewResponded 26 May 2010

In response to the complaint from Sue Woo, the owners of Calderwood Hall Guest House would like to point out that we have only recently become aware of the complaints and are concerned to hear that any guest had an unpleasant stay, We always welcome feedback and the opportunity to discuss the matter at the time so that we can take corrective action as quickly as possible.

The room described in the complaint forms part of a family suite comprising a lounge, a bedroom with a double bed and then a second bedroom with twin beds. It was designed with a family in mind (ie two adults and two children) and our marketing material clearly states this. We also indicate that if two adult couples are to share the suite, then they would need to take these limitations into account. In this instance its allocation was undertaken by the mother-of-the- bride as our entire accommodation was booked for the wedding with the intention of accommodating all her guests - so was out of out hands.

This place is a must! We stayed here for 2 nights in December (25-27). The co-owner Wade was most hospitable. We had dinner and breakfast included - the meals were superb. Besides the property being wonderful, there are great attractions close by including the Midmar dam and one of the best zip-line courses in Africa. The best part about our stay is that for 4 people, for 2 nights, including meals it worked out less than $80 per person per night (rates are subject to change based on season, etc.). This is also a great place for weddings and functions.
