We stayed here for our 20th wedding anniversary & it was truly amazing from the moment we arrived. It was peaceful, relaxing,cosy& offered everything you could imagine. The decor was beautiful, upon arrival we were welcomed with Muscat & chocolates. Even the television had a beautiful DVD playing- a gas long fire with the sound of burning embers which was... More

What an amazing experience, from the moment we arrived we were left in complete privacy in the aptly named Steeple cottage. A spa bath next to the bed absolutely heavenly! A beautiful array of breakfast goodies and a hostess basket in the kitchen and bathroom made us feel welcome and appreciated. Phil and I needed a break from the hassles... More

As the classic 80s song says this really is heaven on earth. Immaculately maintained cottages complete with log fire and double spa and a king bed you needed a rope and four wheel drive to drag me out of. Located in the heart of the Dandenong ranges this property is so idyllic that the autumn leaves, the little creek water... More

Upon arriving I admired all the awards on reception wall thinking gee they must be good. Understatement of the year! Two nights away in our beautiful water garden cottage was divine. Within one hour in this peaceful retreat the stress dissipated. Cottage was clean, quiet and just gorgeous. The fire was lit, the spa was run and the champagne popped.... More

What a fantastic place! The owners should be very proud. A lovely nights stay. Highly recommend the Tranquility cottage. And remember to bring a nice bath salt for the spa. We ended up staying in for dinner and ate outside looking over the garden. So maybe also pack some cheese and wine!

My husband and I recently spent 2 nights in the Magnolia Cottage at Monreale in the Dandenongs. What a beautiful peaceful weekend. We arrived just on dark to a romantically lit cottage, music playing quietly in the background and a fridge full of breakfast supplies. I had ordered dinner to the room so after unpacking and settling in with our... More

My family stayed in the Magnolia Retreat for one night. The cottage is spacious and well appointed. Delicious breakfast hamper in the room for the next morning. The cottage is set amongst beautiful lush gardens and very private. The robes and slippers were a lovely touch to the whole experience as were the candles in the bathroom. If you are... More

We bought a two night package and stayed in Steeple Cottage. When we arrived I was unable to raise anyone at reception which was a bit disconcerting, but we went to our cottage and found it all in readiness for us. Key was in the door, aircon on, soft music playing, breakfast supplies in place. We wanted for nothing -... More

We purchased a 2-night deal via Cudo for a midweek stay, which was fully paid for and booked last month. Unfortunately the morning we were due to arrive, our young son became extremely ill so we were forced to change our plans. After both calling and emailing at 8am to inform them of our circumstances, I had hoped to appeal... More
