We have been there several times, and it is always beautiful. The provided breakfast and gardens are divine. I have never had such a stunning vista from the room, I could happily sit there all day and do nothing but look out the window and listen to the birds.
Very well done for a B&B. Clean, quiet, cosy, good heating and comfortable bed. Big spa bath, average shower. Plenty of food made available. Has a fantastic and large garden to wander around in l. You also get free entry to the Cloudehill nursery and gardens next door. Highly recommended
This was a fantastic place to stay and we can't wait to come here again! The cottage was beautiful - the interior was lovely, very nicely decorated and we loved the cozy fire place. The surrounds were more beautiful than we imaged with lush extensive gardens and lots of trails and birds. The cottage was in a great location and close to lots of cafes and surrounding towns. To top it all off the owner is an incredibly generous host and provided for all our needs and more. Everything was high quality and thoughtfully put together. Thanks for a wonderful stay!
I brought visitors to Woolrich Retreat, twice in 3 weeks...and we were blown away by the beautiful and clean accommodation, the generous provisions for breakfasts, bubbly, port, fruit, chocolates, and everything else. Thank you Mary and Ches for sharing such a beautiful spot with us. On one of the visits, we had some trouble lighting up the fire, rang Mary and she immediately organised for her gardener, Matt, to drop in with more kindling. Matt arrived beaming and in no time got the fire going. He dropped in again the next day with more kindling/wood to ensure we had no trouble the second evening. We had breakfasts on the patio overlooking the gardens and it was spectacular! Both the Woolrich gardens and Cloudehill Gardens added to the beauty of the stay. Woolrich Retreat is highly recommended for anyone wishing quality accommodation in Olinda. I will be back with more overseas visitors. Thank you Mary and Ches!
