Wonderful and accommodating hosts over our 5 night stay. Beautiful setting and so convenient in location with an easy walk through the nearby botanic gardens into the city. Welcoming basket of treats and fresh fruit, comfortable bed, enjoyable chats and exceptional breakfasts that prepared us well for the day's adventures. Keen to try the pool on our next visit (in warmer weather). Arrived as guests and left as friends. Thanks Sue and Phil. We will be back. Mike & Tess.

The room is fitted beautifully, not a spider or speck of dust in sight. Caters for your entertainment, caters thoughtfully to any small appliance for cooking or heating. A beautiful view out into the yard you share with your hosts featuring a beautiful outdoor seating area, a pool and a seating area around the pool. Location a short walk from the city and yet it is tucked away for ultimate relaxation. But I did not love it for those reasons, although they contributed, Sue and Phil are absolutely wonderful, thoughtful, kind, personable and true blue hosts. There for your every need and they won’t let you go without. I thank them so much for making my stay in Adelaide what it was. It truly feels as though I’ve developed a family away from home. I would highly recommend Possom’s Rest for anyone travelling into the city of Adelaide.

Fantastic hosts with all sorts of little extras thrown in. The location is in walking distance to the city if you are fit but also buses nearby. The room is a little small, very clean and well fitted out however if the weather is fine you have access to the very pretty gardens with picnic table and pool which more than makes up for the space. Ample good eateries within easy distance while not going into the CBD. Breakfast are very good. I doubt if you could find a better B&B so close to the city; would stay again if in Adelaide.

Possum's Rest is situated in a beautiful leafy suburb of Adelaide but within walking distance of the city. The accomodation is in a garden room with a shady terrace and swimming pool both of which offer welcome cooling after a day's walking or cycling. Breakfast is served on the terrace accompanied by bird song. The hosts are amazing and extremely helpful, and we felt like good friends within a very short time. We'd come back any time.

We spent a lovely 3 nights with Sue & Phil our lovely welcoming hosts. Our room was adjoining the patio, which was a lovely place to eat a very good full English breakfast. Though small the room has everything you could need for a comfortable stay. The only downside was the small bathroom - it was difficult to get in and out of the shower with the door closed, however this didn't detract from a very enjoyable stay. They also booked us into the local pub for dinner and dropped us in town one night. And Sue's welcome basket and delicious home baked Anzac cookies went down a treat!

The location of the b&B is in a quiet suburban area which has a Excellent public transport links to Adelaide centre.. The accomodation is good a nice room but for for anyone a little chunky the bathroom is small and could present a little challenge. Phil and Sue are fantastic hosts and couldn't be more helpful. It didn't seem to be a B&B it was more like staying with friends.

We couldn't have asked for a more enjoyable B&B experience during our 4 nights stay at Possums Rest. Our wonderfully convivial and entertaining hosts Sue and Phil couldn't have been more welcoming and meeting their beautiful American labrador Kari was an added treat. The Garden Room had everything we could possibly need including a very comfortable bed, a modern bathroom, wi-fi, reverse cycle air-conditioning, plenty of hanging space, tea and coffee facilities and a microwave. Sue's “welcome basket” containing delicious home made Anzac biscuits, fresh fruit and chocolate was a lovely touch. Breakfast in the main house was delicious and our hosts' suggestions on places to eat were much appreciated particularly the Hackney Hotel on Richmond Rd. Possums Rest's location in College Park in Adelaide's north provided a great opportunity to walk to the Botanic Gardens and on to the CBD. Alternatively the local bus service from College Park had us in the CBD in 5 minutes! Possums Rest is a terrific B&B which we couldn't recommend highly enough. Thank you Sue and Phil.

Nothing was too much trouble for outstanding hosts, Sue and Phil, who with their local knowledge gave us some great suggestions and straight- forward directions to near-by highlights. Comfortable room with lots of little extras. Home made Anzac biscuits were a real treat. Beautiful breakfasts and wonderful chats over a morning coffee entertaining us with their cheerful and humourous tales, made our stay feel so welcome. We would highly recommend this beautiful B & B.

We have stayed in this delightful B and B four times and always feel so " at home". The difference being that we do not get waited on so beautifully at home. Every possible need has been anticipated from Sue and Phil's welcome with the huge basket of fruit, goodies and home made biscuits to the perfect breakfast served under the vine-covered pergola by the pool in the lovely garden. Even Kari the "fierce guard dog!" ( a lovely docile golden Labrador) extends her warm welcome. Our only worry in reviewing Possum's Rest is that too many others may discover it's hidden delights and it will be completely booked up when we want to return as we hope to in the future......
