Clean and very tidy, warm and inviting. Hosts were excellent and communicated with us before and during our stay. They accommodated our dietary needs and it was great to see so many organic options available. The entire house is eco friendly! The fresh bread each morning was a fantastic touch and tasted delicious. A few more pots/pans would have been great so we could have cooked a bigger meal, however, with the great choice of restaurants so close, it was easy to eat out. Highly recommend! Thanks Rhonda & Mark!
Not being able to stay longer!
Nothing to fault
Total package .. Very relaxing break
I loved our stay at The gallery B&B Olinda. The B&B was gorgeous, clean and looked exactly as it was advertised. The fire place and spa bath were definitely highlights for me but my favourite part of the stay was the adorably wrapped fresh bread that is cooked and delivered to your door step daily. It was definitely a treat to top off the already awesome breakfast supplied. The range of tea, coffee and condiments supplied was very generous and rather delicious! The car park was huge and the B&B was nestled in amongst a beautiful Forrest setting. Overall it was an amazing stay and I will be back again one day!
Could not fault a single thing about our stay. My partner and I went for our 5 year anniversary and had the most incredible time! We could've spent the entire weekend inside (and we nearly did!), we had everything we could possibly need. The property was exceptional, and the breakfast was divine!! The attention to detail and thoughtfulness of all provided products made a wonderful addition to our stay. We will most definitely be staying at the Gallery again! Many thanks to Rhonda and Mark.
Only wish we could've stayed longer!

The Gallery story We want our guests to be refreshed and inspired by the best stay we can offer. Our architect worked with us in transforming what was once an art and studio space into a stylish and warm retreat. The brief was to provide the most comfortable, intimate and contemporary accommodation possible in a generous space. Sure, The Gallery looks good. but you might like to know there's a philosophy of sustainability behind it: - 100% green power offset - Locally made, double-glazed windows - Plantation grown FSC and recycled timbers - Reclaimed local floorboards and bench tops (the kitchen worktop is from a fallen tree) - Walls and ceilings finished with low VOC paints - 100% natural wool carpet - 100% wool doona and pure cotton linen & towels - Low energy lighting - Locally designed and built 5 1/2 star gas fire heating - Double insulated with petrochemical-free, fibre ecobatts (made from recycled bottles) Even the doormat is made from recycled plastic bottles and rubber! Our locally made range of toiletries is designed for pampering and to be gentle on the planet. Virtually all the ingredients are plant-sourced and exclude petro-chemicals, parabens, dyes, sls, sles and als. No tiny disposable bottles either; we refill our convenient and generous pump packs with wild lavender body wash and salon quality shampoo and conditioner, saving more than two hundred small, plastic bottles going to landfill each year.
