Relaxing! - Edit

This was so relaxing. We had a vegan pizza for Friday night when we arrived. It was delicious and there was an oven to heat it. The b&b is private and was a lot bigger than I was expecting. I've never slept on such comfortable sheets, it was incredible. The property is amazing and was fun to wander around. We saw kangaroos and fed the hens. Thanks Nikki for the corn to feed them. We spent the day in Bendigo but we could have easily spent it in and around the b&b as there was a lot to see and do. Breakfasts and evening meals (plus dessert) were delicious. Nikki and Scott were lovely hosts and we definitely had privacy. We also had a tv and DVD. Can't wait to stay again!

Great for a weekend away - Edit

We recently stayed two nights here and had a fantastic time. The cottage is a beautiful (and quirky) space, very conducive to relaxation. It was great to escape Melbourne for a bit and spend some time recharging in a natural environment. Also, you can see the stars at night, really see them, so make sure you take a look up at night.

There are a lot of friendly animals around who you can interact with as much or as little as you want; Khan (one of the dogs) will absolutely worship you if you give him a bit of attention.

We had 2 breakfasts and one dinner (with dessert of course). All the food was very good, with the dessert (lemon prick pudding) being exceptional.

Nikki was a great host, friendly and helpful, while giving you space.

Pros: Delicious vegan food to your door, Peaceful and relaxing, Khan (a very friendly dog)

Cons: Very reasonably priced for a B&B, You may hear a rooster in the morning

Five stars - Edit

Everything about our stay at bed and broccoli was perfect. It was winter and we had a fire in the lounge. The vegan sausages were the best I've ever had, and my husband couldn't get enough of the pudding. We met some gorgeous and funny animals, namely Hef and Khan. The owner Nikki was a pleasure to get to know and we have kept in touch. We would love to make it back someday!

Heaven on Earth! - Edit

We had the pleasure of staying at Bed and Broccoli in November 2012. I honestly think that this is the nicest accommodation that I have ever stayed in, because it is the most peaceful and most relaxing. The B&B / retreat is like a little piece of heaven on Earth. The owners of the B&B, Nikki & Scott, were incredibly kind to us and made us feel at home from the very beginning. The living area has a lovely spacious bedroom, clean bathroom area and a kitchenette with dining table and chairs. This goes through to a big living room. In the living room there is a sofa, TV and stereo. There is also a good selection of books, CD's and films for entertainment. Guests are of course permitted to spend time with the animal residents and the owners take great pride in sharing the stories of how the animals came to live at Bed and Broccoli. The animals are exceptionally well cared for and we really enjoyed interacting with them and discovering their personalities. At the time of our stay a female peafowl, Delilah, had just begun to raise her little babies. The proud peacock father, Samson, was always nearby. This was a truly lovely sight to see. The B&B is also home to hens, roosters, cows and two dogs. During our time at the B&B we felt very relaxed. For us it was a chance to connect with nature and unwind. We could even see the stars at night - not something that we typically see in England! The vegan food was also amazing. Nikki's scrambled tofu is perhaps the best breakfast that I have ever had and my partner was a massive fan of Nikki's white chocolate mud cake. Bed and Broccoli would make a great get away destination for veggie or vegan couples. Even those who are not veggie but veggie curious would benefit from staying here and learning more about the cruelty-free lifestyle through connecting with the animals and spending time with Nikki & Scott. A lovely stay and certainly the highlight of our trip to Australia - by a mile.

Pros: Everything

Cons: Nothing
