Staying @ The CWA BnB @ Friday, February 14, 2020
Staying at the CWA HQ in Toorak, we booked a single room and got super lucky to book on the same day as we were staying (who said I can't be spontaneous? The level of spontaneity was through the roof as not only did I fail to pack, but I also forgot the bag - though I did do a list). Booking was done on the phone, paying by card. As oppose to online or through an app, you know like normal with minimal interact with people. XD
A single room upstairs with a shared bathroom. In the room there's the standard things: bed, desk, wardrobe, kettle and tray for tea/coffee/cookie. Air con/heater, electric blanket. Unexpected there's a sink which is perfect for those who take a while to do their make-up.
The sheets are so perfect, I love fresh sheets! There's a soft pillow and a firmer one.
There's a huge lounge and TV downstairs, nice garden (we were here last week, for high tea in the dining room), a shared kitchen (please label your food, they have a fridge/freezer/microwave/all that) and shared bathroom.
Weekday check in is 2-8.30pm, 3.30-8.30pm weekend.
Breakfast is served 7.45-9am.
^ I wished they had a pdf of all the info that's in the info book there, available online. Love that they have a Bible provided and a list of local churches & service times.
The next morning after parking we went to breakfast downstairs, a continental (cereal & toast) breakfast is included, 7.30am-9am, so still pretty early for the weekend. A seat by the window was so lovely, calm and quiet. We also love the seat by the window in the tv room, perfect for reading. Though the sun was a bit too much for me, so we retreated back upstairs before checking out.

I don't think many people know about this place, and it's underrated. As a member we paid $60 for a single room, it's not that much more for non-members, though still cheap especially for this area!
A weekend away was just what we needed, and it was perfect. Minimal human interactions. Love it, thanks Pam for assisting us in making a booking and a late check in.
P.S. In case you're curious they use physical keys, and not key cards. There are also no vending machines, but you can buy cute homemade-esque snacks and drinks in the dinning room.
We've also done some baking/Christmas cooking classes - review coming soon.
