Absolutely stunning place. Everyone fell in love with the venue and now are planning there weddings. The staff were amazing and will go out of there way to make everything perfect for your special occasion. I can't wait to go back again. Thank you so much ❤️
We had our wedding at StoneBridge and our day was just perfect. We really couldn't fault anything! The food was wonderful and we received so many positive comments about it. All of our guests thoroughly enjoyed the day and loved the venue. Di who helped with organising the day in the weeks leading up to the wedding was fantastic and did a great job. We stayed overnight in the wedding night accommodation which was also great and we had a lovely breakfast the next morning. A huge thank you to Carmel and her team for everything.
We stayed for one night only but would have been very happy to stay more and would love to return. Our hosts were fantastic, relaxed and efficient and very considerate, going out of their way to cater for special dietary requirements. The gardens are stunning! After relaxing in the spa, we had a great nights sleep before enjoying a cooked breakfast in the garden, overlooking the lake. The late check out of 12 noon meant that we had plenty of time to stroll around the gardens and really appreciate them. Highly recommended.
We had a wonderful day at Stonebridge. Our wedding day was stunning. Di our organiser was fabulous, dedicated, and approachable. She worked hard to make our day perfect for us. The setting is beautiful and the food fabulous. Our guests all commented on what a glorious day it was.

Cobb family vacation”
We stayed at Stonebridge B&B last week with our teenage daughter for 2 nights. Before booking we were wondering whether Lauren could sleep in the S/C unit with us or in the homestead and emailed Carmel She responded promptly with photos which helped us decide that we would put her in the house downstairs and we slept in the S/C unit..The gardens were spectacular and it was so enjoyable to wake up and look out over the lush greenery and flowers. We enjoyed cooked breakfast in the house with Carmel. We attempted to play badminton on the lawns and played with Tess the friendly house dog. Coming from Adelaide it was so pleasant to be in such lush green beautiful surroundings for a couple of days. Thankyou Carmel and Ferg.
I don't think you could get any better B&B in Geraldine to be honest. A great outlook over the small lake and nice accomodation. Hosts are very friendly and the breakfasts are very good, with the options of eating breakfast in-room, outside with views over the pond or inside. We chose the downstairs B&B option. The room was great. We had a very enjoyable stay!
"Carmel and Ferg, Aimee and your wonderful staff
How can we ever thank you for the most beautiful wedding weekend for Britt and Matt. The attention you paid to every detail, from accommodating Peyow Peyow (Brit & Matts horse to allowing Colby their beloved jack russell to join in with Tess & her balloon game) You made it look so effortless but I know the time and energy that went into ensuring everything went without a hitch. Aimee you were always there with a bowl of water for Colbs or refreshments for the bridal party. The venue was absolutely stunning, the weather was gorgeous and the bride looked as though she had stepped out of a fairy tale, together with here handsome prince. We have viewed the DVD and it was so wonderful to be able to relive this most special occasion & to see little details you miss in the excitement of the day. Complements to your chef as the food surpassed expectations, from the Barkers condiments to the amazing salads vegetables and cavery through to delicious mouth-watering desserts. Everything was just perfection. Our guests, even today are still complimenting us on the amazing weekend, and without a doubt the Sunday breakfast was the perfect way to farewell all our guests that made the trip to beautiful Geraldine to join us on this very spectacular occasion. Your professionalism and friendliness was over-whelming and your staff are a credit to you at Stonebridge. We cannot speak highly enough of yourselves and the success of the day was attributed to you all. Many thanks. :)" Donna and Ian (brides parents)
"the grounds are absolutely magical!and we loved staying in your adorable cottage." Pete and Roxanne, California
"Where do i start...Perfect! By far the best day of my life, so nice and easy to deal with, the venue is a real credit.Thank you so much, we will never forget it!" Andrew and Melissa, Kalgoorlie, Western Australia
"This took our breath away. Never seen anything so gorgeous, with great home comforts. Wish you were a bit nearer to us so we could visit often, Thank you soooo much." Christine and John, England
"Adrian and I want to you thank you and the team for creating a truly magical wedding!!! Stonebridge has such a beautiful setting as a wedding venue which set a lovely tone for the day.
We cannot express enough how thankful we are toward your staff for their friendliness and helpfulness. One of your guests wasn't feeling well and left early. One of your staff members packed some desserts for her to take with her. I thought that was really sweet. Another wanted more food when the food was already taken back into the kitchen and another staff memeber with no hesitation went into the kitchen to make up a plate of food. Our guests only had good things to say about the staff and the food!! I have never been to a wedding where everyone was happy with the food! Everyone raved about the food!!! Compliments to the Chef!
Stonebridge has a calm and serene atmosphere and it filters through to the staff who are really lovely and that filtered through to the day and our guests :)
Our Thank You note does not do justice to how amazing you all were!!!" Adrian and Tracey
