Phil and Merryl’s place is a perfect place to unwind. We had the room with balcony and a spa. In the morning, they brought us the breakfast we ordered with a nice trolley, so we could just enjoy our yummy breakfast at the balcony. Overlooking at the well maintained garden and the creek behind, I could’ve stayed there whole day!!

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!!

We had a wonderful two night stay in the Kensington room. This place is beautiful. Attention to detail. So clean and welcoming. All the little extras you get make you go wow. The hot/cold breakfast included is scrumptious. Came home the first night to find dipping chocolates and chocolates on a beautiful tray outside our door . Everything you need in your rooms plus more in the communal area. Definitely a place to experience and stay.

We had a lovely night at BliBli House. Only problem was we should have stayed longer. Very comfortable with lots of little surprises included, Merryl made sure that there were lots of gluten free options available for me too which was a lovely consideration. We can’t wait to do it again!

Phil and Merryl were amazing and nothing was too much trouble during our stay. There were so many nice little touches that really added to the stay. The room was beautiful and spacious and the frounds overlooking the river were so peaceful. We will be back!
