“Just the kind of accommodation you'd want to stay in after a long drive and endless sightseeing”
Reviewed 8 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Stablebase is reasonably-priced and exactly what you see in pictures. Its location is a 7 minute drive away from York Street (flanked by an abundance of shops and eateries), yet secluded enough to see starry skies in the night. Stablebase's modern architecture and furnishings made our stay very comfortable and Tom's hospitality made us feel right at home. The kitchen is well-equipped, rooms are spacious and there's a very handy fireplace to warm the place on chilly nights. The firm beds and pillows are just perfect for a good night's sleep.

Forget about data and wifi (one's weak and the other non-existent unless you're in the city), soak up the country atmosphere and interact with the horses and chickens found on the property instead.

My feedback would be to have some shelves and a hand towel hook beside the sink in the disabled-friendly bathroom for convenience.

“Wonderful stay once again.”
Reviewed 8 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We returned to stable base in July as it was a nice stay back in March, it was a bit rainy this time but that didn't get in our way.

When it was raining you couldn't even hear it when you were sleeping, it was truly silent and peaceful.

We got lots of eggs from the chooks that they had, they were really fresh!

It was nice returning to the accomadation.

“Relaxing, tranquil and an ideal place for a peaceful getaway”
Reviewed 20 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Can not say enough nice things about StableBASE. Owners Tom and Sam were very welcoming and helpful suggesting driving routes suitable to our taste, as too the suggestion of places to eat locally. The facilities were stunning, both modern and clean. As too was the peaceful location. We were well catered for with brekky provisions also. Thank you for making our stay one to treasure.

“Delivers as advertised”
Reviewed 20 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We stopped by mid-week for two nights (two adults and a teenager) and spent most of our time in Albany out and about exploring the excellent ANZAC memorials and other attractions, so didn't get to see much of our hosts at this lovely property.

Stablebase is quality accommodation that delivers exactly what it promises - out of the hustle and bustle but still offering easy access to the many attractions in the area and the town centre. The accommodation is well designed and fitted out with quality furniture fittings and utensils, and we were welcomed with an unexpected selection of fresh eggs, bread and jams etc.

Although it's self-contained, it is closely integrated into the main house (think attached Granny flat) with a common entrance which limits privacy somewhat. I also would have liked to have seen a dishwasher in the kitchen. Both of these are minor issues, and we had a very pleasant couple of days staying here.
