Well maintained B&B with the thoughtful and welcoming Sonja available to answer queries and provide advice on local attractions. Book early to get the better rooms (we booked late over a long weekend and were lucky to get a room at all!). Also, Sonja understands gluten free requirements and was able to recommend eateries that might cater for celiacs.

It had everything we needed plus a lot of character and real charm. Lovely garden and roof-top viewing area with beautiful views of the magnificent outback sunrises and sunsets. Sonja is...

Had the pleasure of staying at this B&B for 2 nights just gone. Although Sonja was away her understudy Heather stepped in and did a fantastic job looking after us.

We recently stayed at Sonja's B&B in Lightning Ridge and wanted to write a review on it, but unfortunately it's not listed. However it's a great place to stay ! This little cottage is full of character, the rooms warm and tasteful, beds comfy, good breakfast. Would definitely stay again.
