A step back in time
Vacy house is lovely, so old and interesting. Rooms have been decorated in various styles to capture the mood of the era.. Interesting reading about the history of the property. Veranda having breakfast very relaxing.
Queen rooms are a little on the small size, I could spend a couple of nights, but after that may feel like I need a little more space, but a very old style romantic vibe to the place.. I enjoyed, the hallway through the main entrance - lovely.
The best hotel stay I have ever experienced
What can I say? The charm of this historic home is incomparable, as is the pristine condition in which it has been kept.
The room was a dream, large with high ceilings and a floor to ceiling Victorian sliding window/door that led onto a peaceful veranda right around the house onto the most gorgeous quiet garden, where we had a breakfast - far better than your average 'Continental' since everything was so carefully done, even with gluten free bread (about 6 varieties of toast available) job on a lovely wooden table. Every attention to detail was there in other small things that matter to the weary traveller, such as "I wish I had a tissue / glass of cold water / etc" and there it was at hand. Lovely luxurious fluffy robes and towels (what else would you expect, but how rarely do you find it). The hospitality was real, but above all the fell of this wonderful home with its generosity in design and in our host was just magic. I would say the perfect stay.
Thank you so much, we needed that restfulness and calm. And we were able to meet with our colleagues - my business partner from Melbourne also took one look at the Web site and booked in here as well - and do business in the moist idyllic setting. Recommended 100% for the tourist and business traveller.
Historic experience of excellence
Right from the moment you drive in, see the house and the gardens you are drawn back in time. We had a king suite which was just beautiful, romantic and really comfortable. I loved just lying on the swing seat, reading the paper and napping in the afternoon. Breakfast was of a high standard and eating on the verandah was very special. Ambience abounds in this historic home and attention to detail is evident to create this experience. Graham was a most gracious host.
Home away from home
I have been regularly staying at Vacy Hall on business visits for 10 years. Finally a review!
I find Vacy Hall to be quiet and relaxing and it's my home away from home.
The building is set in beautiful grounds and is a little bit of history in itself. Wide verandahs and wide halls all decorated with furniture from yester-year.
It's located in a quiet part of town but close to restaurants and shopping.
The host, Graham, is friendly and efficient and as a local can make recommendations of places to visit and to eat. I love the casual leafy, historic setting and always get a good nights sleep at Vacy Hall. In winter the fireplaces are an added bonus.
When I visit with my family they also love the place. There are lots of interesting places for children to explore.
Truly a great experience
My wife and I recently stayed at Vacy along with my mother-I law. Graham our host was kind enough to consider her frailty and rearranged rooms to accommodate her mobility issues.
The house is an antique lovers dream with so many delightful pieces tastefully decorating each bedroom as well as the halls, entrance, verandahs and common areas. I highly recommend the swing beds outside the main suite as well as a couple of other rooms the reclining day bed also offers relaxing comfort while reading or just nodding off.
The rooms are beautifully appointed with large comfortable mattresses that provide a restful night's sleep.
The breakfast choices are tasty with the marmalade absolutely a must. Graham and staff have kept the home in wonderful condition with the gardens manicured and bountiful with many different plants and bird life. If you are wanting a very memorable old world experience please make a booking and stay at this lovely historic home. It's history is most interesting and linked to early Queensland and Australian history.
