About The Nest at Gundaroo

Located in this historic 19th-century Australian village, The Nest at Gundaroo is a family-run establishment offering five lavish short-stay self-contained apartments and a heritage-listed 150-year-old cottage.

Each suite features high ceilings and large windows, with the open floor plan providing a seamless transition from the lounge to the dining area. Amenities provided include a flat-screen TV, microwave, a wood-fired heater, and premium Natural Earth toiletries. Some units include loft bedrooms and kitchens.

In addition to complimentary private parking, The Nest at Gundaroo offers free Wi-Fi and a daily maid service.

A complimentary continental or cook-your-own breakfast is available. The property is also in the heart of the cool climate wine district, so visitors should enjoy the many cellar doors close by as well as the superb eateries such as Grazing, the Cork Street Cafe Pizzeria and the Colonial Inn.

The establishment is about 20 kilometres from the scenic Tulip Top Garden. Closer to home, the banks of the Yass River are just five minutes' walk away.

Positive Reviews

Comfortable living spaces

Guests thought the accommodations are quite spacious and luxuriously appointed. Not only are the units immaculately clean, they contain all the comforts required for a relaxing stay. Guests are quite satisfied with the beds and pillows provided as they offered maximum comfort and support.

Quiet spot for relaxing

The villas’ location in a historic, rural village is quite pleasing to guests as it offers a quiet spot away from the hustle and bustle of the city, while at the same time being just a short, 30-minute drive from Canberra. Guests appreciated the fact that there are several points of interest and dining options within easy reach of the property.

Professional services

Guests are pleased by the fact that the welcoming hosts seem to always be in high spirits. Their enthusiasm in carrying out their daily duties and their dedication to offering personalised services makes for a great stay, from the moment guests check in to the time of departure.

Negative Reviews

Unreliable Wi-Fi signal

Guests who have to access the Internet on a regular basis are dismayed to discover that the Wi-Fi service is too slow to be of much use. The speeds are quite sluggish, particularly in the morning hours when the number of users increases.

No lavatories in the loft

The lack of bathrooms on the upper floors in some units is quite disappointing. Guests are inconvenienced by the fact that they have to make trips downstairs to where the bathrooms are located in order to use the facilities.
