My husband and I have just spent 4 nights at Exley House and it is so much more than a B n B. We were very lucky in that we were the only visitors and it may be different if sharing with strangers. We basically had a spotless character home with sweeping verandahs to ourselves as the entrance is completely private. When we arrived I was surprised at how close it was to a major highway but once inside the traffic noise was not at all intrusive. The location meant that it was very handy to the shops and the local cinema with the gorgeous Swan River not too far away. The gardens are glorious and made a perfect place to sit and read in the sunshine. Purely at a personal level, I found the bed to be very firm but others may love it. The bath towels were thick and luxurious and toiletries plentiful. The breakfasts were plentiful and delicious and Nola was the perfect non intrusive host.
