The setting...
Nestled in the expansive private grounds of the historic Glen Isla Homestead (circa 1870 and heritage classified), Glen Isla House is a small luxury hotel-style country house retreat offering great breakfasts with warm personal hospitality from internationally well-traveled owner-hosts...

Glen Isla House accommodates a small number of guests only, to ensure unobtrusive personal attention and absolute privacy in a serene heritage atmosphere.

Two acres of dreamy established and authentic heritage gardens provide a tranquil retreat to relax in (the oak trees are heritage classified and over 100 years old).

Special Breakfasts...
For guests staying in our Heritage Suite and Classic Deluxe rooms, linger over a memorable al-a-carte chef's breakfast created from fresh local ingredients, cooked to individual order - served to you at your own table overlooking the heritage gardens in the elegant dining room (available 0830-0945am. We have resident professional chefs at Glen Isla. Continental breakfast is available before 0830am and after 10am by prior arrangement)

Glen Isla has its own organic culinary herb garden, and our professional chefs use only local certified free range eggs.

The restaurant-style dining room is reserved exclusively for resident house guests (in our Glen Isla Classic Deluxe Rooms and the Anderson Heritage Suite) for our breakfast service and provides an intimate experience.

Special chef's hand-crafted breakfasts served most days (our kitchen/dining room is closed some days). Dietary needs can be catered for by our professional chefs - with advance notice.

We can recommend nearby restaurants for lunch and dinner - some walking distance. (we no longer offer dinner or lunch at Glen Isla), and if our kitchen happens to be closed for breakfast, we can recommend cafe's nearby for breakfast!

Staying in our elegant self-cater Gate Cottage?
We can recommend nearby supermarkets in the township for provisions (the cottage has a fully equipped real kitchen - not a 'kitchenette' like some cottages), and there are numerous cafe's in the town if you don't fancy preparing your own breakfast!

Chef's breakfast is not generally available in the main dining room for Gate Cottage guests, but you could check with the hosts on arrival (on availability and costs)

Secure off-street parking is provided (inside the grounds for all guests - NOT on the street). We never request guests to park on the street outside the property!

Children over 12 yeas old are welcome - accompanied by adults of course... (Glen Isla is a heritage classified property - unsuitable for young children due to 3 unfenced historic wells and a large unfenced fishpond on the property). Children staying are charged at the adult rate for their stay.

Our Classic Deluxe Rooms and the Heritage Suite accommodate maximum occupancy of 2 guests only (we do not have roll-a-way or folding beds at Glen Isla), and tariffs are for occupancy of 1 or 2 persons only. For 3 persons, two classic rooms are required (or one classic room and the heritage suite).

Free Wi-Fi Internet access (fair use policy applies). WiFi is accessible in most rooms, in the main dining room and gardens gardens.
