About the property

Come and discover Darnell Bed & Breakfast, 'the hidden spot'. Nestled among the peaceful upper slopes of Mt Gibraltar, we are only 5 minutes drive from Bowral and Mittagong, in the heart of the picturesque Southern Highlands.

Use our local knowledge to make the most of your stay, but be assured of complete privacy in the dedicated guest wing of the house.

In the morning, a generous continental breakfast by the open fire in our dining room will be the perfect start to your day.

Excellent experience

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just stayed the weekend and had an absolutely fabulous time. Mel & Jerry and little Abby were so lovely abd friendly and made us feel very welcome in their home.

The property is fantastic and we especially loved sitting on the patio having some wine & cheese enjoying the sun & bush.

A wonderful and memorable place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I spent our first holiday together in this lovely b&b, and it was an unforgettable experience.

The host Mel & Jerry are very helpful and polite, giving us plenty of advice to tour around the area. When we arrived, we were welcomed with afternoon tea - my fiancé is visiting Sydney from overseas, and he reckoned had the black coffee Jerry made is the best he had in Sydney; while I enjoyed Mel’s chocolate cake very much, the best I’ve ever had in my life. The place is immaculately clean and well presented with great ambience. We thoroughly enjoyed our room with spa and leafy view, and delicious full breakfast. It’s a short walk to Mount Gibraltar, for people who enjoy quiet environment; but at the same time, very close drive to all the restaurants in Bowral and Mittagong. A very great spot. We definitely look forward to visiting again.

What a beautiful place Darnell is

  • 5 of 5

My husband Ross and I enjoyed our stay. The room was lovely and the spa was an added bonus. The chocolate cake when we arrived was very nice. The breakfast was delicious. Mel, Jerry and Abbie were very friendly. We have told a few friends what a great place Darnell's is.
