    bedroom and bathroom were great. The kitchen was well equipped but the seating was very cramped in winter- would have been fine out on the deck in warmer weather.

    We spent four nights at Sonja's. Arrived late on Friday evening after driving all day. Room was clean and fresh and slept soundly in Comfortable bed with air conditioning on all night and ceiling fan on. Enjoyed a warm shower before heading out for the Day. Clean tidy kitchette with bar fridge and microwave too. Enjoyed our stay there and on last night we moved into a Superior room which had more space plus a couch too. At the back of the house it was very quiet and even cooler in the evening. Beautiful gardens and outdoor setting and family BBQ available. Our host was very friendly and we loved our Stay here. Highly recommend and plan to Return very Soon🎯❤️🎯❤️🎯

    Lovely old home in a quiet area, provides every thing needed for a home away from home with good BBQ facilities so you can prepare your own meals should you wish and gives option for breakfast to be provided or you can save costs by providing it yourself as the room has a little kitchenette. Overall good value for money.

    nosey owner

    the room was small clean and tidy. alot of work has gone into creating such a homely space. what i didnt appreciate was when we left to go out, we came back to find our room unlocked and someone had entered and felt the need to clean up the two cups and two plates in the sink and turn the power points off for the kettle n toaster. i just got the sense the owner was nosey.

    Comfortable. No free wifi was offered and breakfast was extra when we wrongly assumed it was included as B&B, Sonya was welcoming and friendly.

    The service was friendly and the room was immaculate. However, the room was small and not as quiet as I'd have liked.

    What a hidden little gem in Lightning Ridge! A quirky Bed and Breakfast with a very homely feel. We loved our room (The Miner's Room I think it was called), and would love to come back for a longer stay to take advantage of all the little extras provided by Sonja. Good sized private kitchenette, opens onto a lovely more open eating area where you can also mingle with the other guests. Comfy bed ... we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thanks Sonja .. see you again!
