We had such a wonderful couple of nights at the Heart of Emerald. The location is terrific as it is on a quiet street with Puffing Billy railway station and Emerald shops just a minutes walk away.
The gardens are beautifully landscaped and the rooms are spacious and filled with thoughtful touches. There were also generous and delicious supplies for us to prepare breakfast with each morning.
Not only that, the hosts are incredibly accommodating and a pleasure to deal with. Could not recommend highly enough! Thanks for such a beautiful couple of days.

Absolutely gorgeous B&BLucinda

We spent last weekend at The Heart of Emerald for a wedding in the area.
There were 11 adults and the place was perfect. There are 6 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. It was a great place to relax. The location is excellent as you are 1 minute from the centre of Emerald. We will stay here again

Great Place for a GroupLeanne

We were in Emerald to attend a 50th birthday party and found The Heart of Emerald as a place to stay. We got to stay in the Honeymoon Suite - the Sarah Fleming at the front of the house, which was fantastic. Marg was away the weekend we were there, but she got in contact before our arrival and let us know where everything was.
The room, with the bathroom and its large bath was excellent, and we made the most of the space, and the chairs out on the balcony to watch the world go by.
The Emerald shops are only a short walk away, and we stocked up drinks and nibbles to get us through.
We'll be back, and thoroughly recommend it as a place to stay for anyone.

What a lovely place! We stayed in an open plan family room with a kitchenette and a separate part you can split off for the little one. There were lots of toys for her to play with, which was a nice surprise and we were ecstatic! It was comfortable with gorgeous decor. Great location next to puffing Billy. Marg was a wonderful host and we wish we could have stayed longer.
