  • The gardens at Saumarez are amazing, especially Mary's, which is maintained by Jarrod the friendly gardner. Inside the house is a time capsule full of significant historical masterpieces of its time, and Lez the property manager was a warm-hearted welcoming man with extensive knowledge. If you love exquisite antiques, ambience, bygone architecture and the highest standard of customer service, then this estate is not to be missed whilst visiting Armidale !!!
  • This place is well worth a visit as is a guided tour. It was excellent. The property is well maintained in its 1906 state. The tour guide is very good too. Lunch was also very pleasant in their cafe. Highly recommended.
  • Thrilled that all this glorious history has been kept and displayed so true to the period. Guided walk through was the icing on the cake. So so very much a must to visit.
  • Interesting tour of the homestead, outhouses , gardens and grounds. Very disappointed that photographs were unable to be taken within the home even without the flash. Interesting history never the less. Extensive rose gardens but they lack shade so tend not to take the time to really enjoy which is a pity.
  • Beautiful gardens.
