Branksome House
Ranked #9 of 10 Leura B&B and Inns
Reviewed 29 June 2008

I have had the pleasure of staying several times at Branksome House and would not consider staying anywhere else in the Blue Mountains. From the moment you arrive, till long after you have left, you have that feeling of being 'special'. Nothing is overlooked - amazingly comfortable beds, the fire set and ready to light with the logs stacked neatly beside it, a collection of music which caters for most tastes and a garden that will enthral you.

There is nothing better than coming back to Branksome House after a day cruising the shops in Leura and surrounding beautiful villages or (if you are more energetic) walking the numerous trails in the Mountains. During winter, I always love returning to Branksome after one of these 'adventures' to enjoy a glass of red wine in front of the fire or on those occasions when I've stayed during warmer times, a lovely glass of something cold while sitting on the front verandah enjoying the beautiful garden with it's light and shade and splashes of colour.

I love the ambience at Branksome House that has been created with the use of wonderfully subtle and warm colours and fabrics. They are combined beautifully with exquisite furnishings to give guests a feeling of sumptuousness without going 'over the top'.

There was nothing better than to wake in the amazingly comfortable bed to be greeted by birds in the trees right outside the window, brewed coffee and delicious French pastries that can be purchased in the village (about a three minute walk from Branksome House). You can choose to cook your own breakfast but I always prefer to explore the numerous fantastic cafes in Leura that are all within easy strolling distance of Branksome House.

As I said, it doesn't get any better and I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in the Blue Mountains.

The acommodation is very homely and a beautiful place where you can relax and enjoy more than the comforts of (my) home! You have to be a little creative with cooking as there is no traditional oven but there is a microwave and electric wok! We really enjoyed the the glass chess set, electric blankets, fire place and sitting on the verandah in the morning sun.
Probably the most outstanding aspect was the hospitality of our host, Cynthia, who was incredibly hospitable from the first moment. She made us feel very welcome and was available if any problems arose.
Thanks for a beautiful stay!

We loved our stay at Branksome House, warm comfortable, plushly decorated, it was such a relaxing time for us at the end of a lot of travelling around Australia. The entire front half of this grand old house is the B&B section, quiet outlook and easy walk to town centre. Leura a lovely little town in the Blue Mountains style. Highly recommended!

We left Branksome House feeling wonderful.
The house is sumptuous and comfortable-very inviting on a cold day!
We loved sitting around the open fire with a glass of wine,chatting and reading.(Toasting the enormous jar of marshmallows provided was fun as well!)
Beautifully decorated,it provided a home away from home with the boutique edge we love.
