All aspects of our stay were good, and in particular the hosts. 5/5 by ,
My parents stayed here as I live 5 minutes down the road. It was really convenient for them, and certainly exceeded their expectations, as they are quite private people and not initially keen on a B&B. They were very happy and said the hosts were lovely. Welcoming and not at all intrusive. If you have to stay in Doncaster, this is a great option.5/5 by , S.A

We stayed at "Blue Willow" in 2009 ....loved it then, and now 3 years later, Jean and Ray are as consistent as ever with their hospitality, cleanliness, provisions,and just all around great service and hospitality.To be so close to family over Christmas, just 2 minutes away, as well as public transport, shopping centres, and a vey accessible motorway to the city just a minute away.....all adds up to a very happy holiday experience!!!We can't recommend this sweet little "home away from home" enough!!!5/5 by , NSW
