  • Disappointed that we fought heavy traffic to show up on a Wednesday when the website showed the House & Gardens to be open, only to find that the house is in fact, only open on weekends. I wonder how many other people get caught because of this misleading information? We enjoyed a stroll through the gardens and a coffee at the Stables, but we wanted to tour the house and left disappointed.
  • Beautifully landscaped Como gardens given to the public each day. Lots of shaded areas, good for relaxing. the trees and birds almost mask the sound of traffic
  • Beautiful settings, well worth a second look once the inside restoration is complete. Fresh food.
  • What a disappointment. Prior to visiting I viewed website for opening times etc only for it to crash several times. Upon arriving learnt the mansion was closed due to private function. Perhaps in future update your website and make sure it functions properly.
  • Lovely for a coffee and a stroll
