Wonderful, charming and unique

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two nights with our two kids and friends from Sweden. The property was so peaceful, and Jenny and David were wonderful and accommodating hosts. The kids were enthralled with sleeping in a train, and the homemade breakfast was delicious. We hope to be back soon!

Absolutely Magical

  • 5 of 5

We may have only stayed one night but it was totally amazing! From the moment we arrived we felt welcomed. Not only was there a cute sign infront of our room welcoming us by name, but also Jenny herself came down to welcome us and check the heaters were already on. Just perfect and caring service throughout, Jenny and David were the best hosts!!! The cabins/train itself to totally unique and very original yet had the modern comforts. Really loved our stay thanks again!

We loved our two night stay in the Ambledown Book Train Carriage. Lovely accommodation with the perfect amount of novelty, comfort and beautiful views. A comfortable drive into the main city of Canberra. Wonderful hosts who could not do enough and provided a wonderful breakfast. Highly recommended - we'll be back! Thanks, Jenny and David!

We loved the idea of staying in a tram. It is unique and fun! The swimming pool was a great bonus, considering it was over 40 degrees the day we stayed! Breakfast was lovely.
