Cons: Lack of privacy but it really depends on what you’re looking for. I’d recommend this place for solo travelers or those looking to travel on a bit of a budget.
Pros: Graceland was an amazingly interesting experience which we had not anticipated. As it turned out we had a lovely time with Deb,Jerry and Moya. We live in a sustainable type environment in Australia and it was great to see what they are doing in Graceland. They are all very friendly and informative about the place and Athol in general. We had great meals at the two pub restaurants and enjoyed the friendliness of everyone.
Cons: Breakfast. Being a B&B , I think it would be better to increase the price a little to include a continental breakfast. A kettle for tea/coffee in the room would be a good addition. The entrance to the property through the Shed is a little off putting at first.

Cons: Soft bed and soft pillow
Pros: For the most part, both hosts were really accommodating and lovely. Their dog is the cutest and the room and fireplace were amazing.
