When was the last time you took a romantic getaway from the city? How about the last time you and your beloved simply enjoyed each other’s company letting the world go by? Or the last time you both enjoyed good old-fashioned, home-style hospitality?
If it’s been too long, why not surprise your partner with a romantic couple’s only holiday or weekend break at a b&b nearby the Redcliffe waterside, or in the hinterland?
For lengthy or quick weekend getaways for couples look no further than these 4 charming bed and breakfast accommodation options perfect for romantic escapes.
Reid’s Place in the heart of Scarborough suburbia is both a vintage wedding venue and a luxurious bed and breakfast perfect for lovebirds. The colonial-style Queenslander features tasteful décor harking back to a bygone era with polished timber flooring and touches of elegance throughout.
The luxuriously spacious, yet cosy feeling, colonial-fashioned cottages are bright and breezy, and come complete with a double spa bath and balcony doors which open up onto a wrap-around veranda.
Your hosts, Beth and Rob Reid, will take wonderful care of all your needs during your time in their beautiful home. You’ll find complimentary chocolates and champagne awaiting you upon arrival and each morning of your stay you’ll wake up to a heavenly home-cooked breakfast served up on the secluded outdoor deck.
Reid’s Place is the perfect spot for partners looking for wonderfully private romantic escapes in the heart of Scarborough suburbia, 500 metres west of Scarborough Beach and waterside dining options, and about 1km south-east of the marina and its harbour view restaurants.
Mount Mee Country Inn exudes a nostalgic feel, its colonial-style décor harking back to the days of old with the b&bs eclectic assortment of charming British knick-knacks and colourful decorations stealing the show – from the pub’s hanging ceiling mug collection to the various brewery artworks adorning the pub’s lounge area walls.
In addition to the b&b's quaint English pub, the accommodation provider also features a tea room radiating old world charm, as well as a function space complete with a pool table.
Your warm and welcoming hosts, Jackie and Trevor Franklin, will set you up in one of 3 comfortably cosy guest bedrooms, each with ensuite.
On the afternoon of your arrival you’ll be served a lovely complimentary afternoon tea in the tea room or gardens. As evening encroaches you can pull up a table (or bar stool) in the colourfully decorated pub for dinner or a drink followed by cuddling up in leather sofas by the crackling fireplace for quiet couple’s time together. If you wish to challenge your partner to a game of pool instead, you can head into the function room for some friendly rivalry.
During the day you can swim in the secluded pool nestled amongst greenery, or enjoy romantic escapes in the manicured gardens strolling along pathways dotted with seating spots.
