A special find! The two-bedroom accessible unit had a green and private outlook meaning you felt like you were in a retreat!
The hosts were so welcoming, helpful and went the extra mile during our stay. The shower (who mentions a shower); well, it was the best and others felt so too! Everything you need to a stop over or a longer stay. We shally be heading there again.

Room tip: On the way to lots of places

We stayed here for two nights to explore the area. It’s squeaky clean and comfortable with a fully stocked kitchen, comfy bed and lounge chairs.

Even though we had one of the units by the road, the sound proofing and insulation is good and we weren’t bothered by road noise at all.

It was cool the few days we were here, but we didn’t need to worry. There’s a nice, quiet wall heater instead of an annoying heat pump, an extra blanket and even an electric bed warmer.

Black on Gray is now our favourite place to stay when we’re in the lovely town of Geraldine

We just spent one night, and the unit (one of four individual units) was clean and equipped as advertised. However, the bathroom sink was crazy small (smaller than most public toilet sinks) and made it impossible to wash your face without getting water all over the floor. The bathroom mirror was also oddly placed in a tiny space between the sink and the shower (they'd placed a window above the sink), so my husband couldn't see what he was doing while shaving. We found mattress-covering heating pads in a few other places over our four-week trip, but most had a cover over the top. On this one I could feel the coils poking through the sheet, which wasn't great. Friendly host, though.

Hi there,
Just saw this post so apologies for late response. We actually have 5 Standalone Units-there is a 2 Bedroom one beyond the back hedge- more private.
We took over in Dec 2022 so the business was well established. Yes when we use to stay here we thought the same about the sinks but hey you utilise the best you can, with a bathmat on the floor :)
We are getting the little basin challenge fixed as I type & also will move mirrors slightly as we go - as you know it all costs $$
The Electric Blanket coils are pretty much on the edge of each side of the King/Queen beds, will double check next time I am making to rectify that. Thank you for the positive parts of your review & we hope to host you again sometime. Stay Warm!
Regards,
Angeline & Paul

Wonderful Experience! The unit was perfect in every way, cleanliness, comfort especially the bed, cooking facilities were great and we had a treat on our pillow (by the way the pillows were fabulous too). Angelina was extremely hospitable and very accommodating.
Would defiantly recommend this and the sweet location of Geraldine.

We recently spent 4 nights at Black on Grey and had a very enjoyable stay. Angeline was welcoming and helpful and we appreciated the little touches like chocolates on our pillows. The setting is great and we enjoyed being just a little out of town, which is an easy half hours walk away. Our 2 bedroom unit was very sunny, spacious, warm, clean, and quiet. The beds were extremely comfortable and the shower was great. It was also lovely to have a private outdoor area. If you are staying in Geraldine this is a great place to stay. While you are there Peel Forest and Mt Peel station are well worth a visit.
