Our stay was nothing but perfect! Absolutely stunning decor, views over the river and the food was unsurpassed when it comes to B&B’s!! If you want a quiet, luxurious night away with decedent food - this is the place!!

Hotel's Favourite
One of the most amazing places we have ever stayed at. Victorian elegance and charm at its best. Ambient & spacious bedroom and bathroom with private balcony overlooking the beautifully landscaped grounds & river. Plush hallways and other cosy sitting areas provide many options to relax and relish the experience whilst enjoying the coffee, tea, pastries and fudge supplied in abundance. The included breakfast was scrumptious, ample and served with class. Phil and Merryl were the consummate hosts and couldn't have done more to make our stay so enjoyable. We can't recommend Bli Bli House enough and will definitely stay for longer next time!!

Wow! Wo only needed an overnight stay and Bli Bli house looked good online . WOW! What a surprise, this was the best part of our holiday. The Victorian house is set on picturesque grounds backing onto the riverbank, so relaxing. Elegantly furnished guest lounge with complimentary cakes and sweets and a chess set (we had a couple of games) Upstairs was the games room with old world charm and even a mini grand piano at the entrance of the house. The suite was beautifully furnished with a large four poster bed with the softest sheets, a kitchenette and even a fireplace The host’s Phil and Merryl were very welcoming and the house was luxurious and extremely clean. The special little treats and delicious cooked breakfast was brought to us on a silver trolley which made us feel like VIP’s. We have stayed in many B&B’s and hotels around the world and this would have to have been the most beautiful. We absolutely love Bli Bli house and will be back, to be spoilt once again.

My husband and I stayed at Bli Bli house for one night in the Regency Suite with the romance package. We were greeted at the front door by Merryl who was warm and friendly. We were given a tour of the retreat before being shown to our luxurious suite. We loved that we could roam around the house and enjoy the sweet trolley, coffee/tea and the pool room. We didn't have time to use the media room/home theatre but will use it next time. Our suite was absolutely beautiful! It was opulent and regal with a four post bed, double sofa, small kitchenette, slippers and robes, ensuite with double spa bath and separate shower and french doors that led onto our own private balcony with beautiful views. We enjoyed a bottle of champagne and strawberries before settling in for the night. The bed was very very comfortable and we enjoyed a good nights sleep. We handed in our breakfast choices the night before and received a text message in the morning to inform us that our breakfast trolley was ready and outside our door. The breakfast was beautifully prepared and very well cooked. We enjoyed a hot breakfast with fresh coffee and pastries. The only thing we regretted was only staying one night. We will definitely be back! Thank you to the hosts for a beautiful stay.

Bli Bli House is perfectly placed between the beach and the hinterland but that is not what makes it so special. It’s is the little things provided by the hosts that make it a must. Strawberries and chocolate on arrival, a complimentary lolly and cake stand with tea and ground coffee, a cooked to order breakfast and more. The room with a four-poster bed as the focus was beautiful as was the entire house - tastefully decorated throughout and positioned on the riverbank. Nothing more could be asked. We will go again and already have recommended it highly to friends and family.
