"What a delightful find"
Firstly let me see I am stunned to see another reviewer complain at the absence of breakfast despite there being a large lettered notice at the entrance stating 'self catering' cottages. If he was disappointed the argument is with his travel agent not the supplier. Despite this, I think the reviewer was being a little churlish in that there was sufficient food provided in each cottage for a light breakfast for a couple of days as a 'welcome gesture'. We were met by the owner, Jan who took us to Cottage 6 and explained everything in detail. The cottage was a million miles away from the tensions of daily life Ina rural setting a couple of kilometres from Lakes Entrance and all its restaurants and facilities. The cottage was beautiful with a large fitted kitchen, large diner/ lounge with a hidden laundry facility and a log burner set in a stone build hearth. The bedroom had a large bathroom ensuite including double spa bath and separate shower cubicle. On the site were a pool, spa, communal room and two gas barbecues. Jan and her staff could not have been kinder and we will return to the UK singing the praises of this 'cottage in the woods' and commending it to others.
Our UK travel agency had booked this cottage for us on a B&B basis as one of our stops as we travelled btween Sydney and Adelaide. Our experience started off when we arrived at reception to find no-one there. Checking in forms had been printed off and left on the counter to complete, with an instruction for those who hadn't paid to enter their credit card details. Completed forms were to be left on the counter ( imagine what your bank would say if anyone scammed them!) Our first impressions of the cottage was favourable - spacious and well equiped - but then we found the compendium of "do's" and "don'ts". The compendium also stated that as the cottages were intended to be self catering, only minimum provisions had been provided. This was certainly true, There was just enough washing up liquid in the kitchen, just enough liquid soap in the bathromm to see us through the night - I even checked to see if the tiolet roll sheets had been counted out !! (Thankfully not). As we had booked on a B&B basis, we then checked the fridge for the provisions - 4 slices of bread, two cartons of sugary fruit drink, two small pots of diced peach and four small satchets of preserves 1 marmalade, 1 jam, 1 peanut butter & 1 honey. Packs of sugary breakfast cereal and muesli were found on the windowsill. On the plus side, the cottage was equiped with laundry facilities so we took the opportunity to wash a few clothes. So far so good. However, when we tried to use the tumble drier we had a problem. After trying various things we decided to use the phone numbers provided to contact the owners. No reply on either. Despite leaving a message on their mobile they couldn't be bothered to ring us back. There was still no sign of anyone in the morning when we left. So after making sure we emptied the bins, washed & put away all our dishes as instructed, we ended up taking a load of wet washing with us to our next port of call. In the cottage compendium, there was an article saying that in 2008 the owners had been nominated in some state hospitality award scheme. I wonder why they haven't been nominated since.
"Nice, spacious, cottage but..."
We were disappointed overall - the breakfast; which was just a couple pieces of bread, a couple,of small boxes of cereal, instant coffee and juice boxes. You will be about a 10 minute drive to town - we took a cab one night and it was $15 each way. The owners/managers were not visible to check on us or to ask if we needed anything. Better hotels for less $ maybe available in town.
"Spacious home from home"
Really glad we stayed here. It's a very spacious cottage with separate bedroom, large bathroom and enormous lounge/diner with separate kitchen off. The cottage included fully equipped kitchen and laundry facilities and a breakfast pack (even though described as self catering). Very clean, communal heated swimming pool, hot tub/ spa. It's in a beautiful Rural location on the edge of the town but only 5mins drive to the centre. Just wished I had stayed longer and would thoroughly recommend.
Stayed 2 nights on our road trip from Melbourne to Sydney. Wished we had more time here as it's beautiful. The location is stunning, although slightly out of town and you need a car to get back and forward. The cottage is very well appointed with a large living, dining, kitchen area with all mod cons. Lovely bedroom and large bathroom with spa bath and separate shower. Large wrap around porch but too cold to make use of it. Spa/hot tub in it's own cabin which was great and although you have to book it and have it for an hour at a time, we had it all to ourselves which was fab. We didn't care that owners weren't there to meet us, all that we needed was provided. Wifi was not a problem for us either. Would highly recommend these cottages and if we are ever in this area again, we would definitely be back!
