We spent a weekend in the Tranquility cottage here, it just wasn't enough!! Beautiful surrounds, wood fire and large spa... we had everything we needed. Beautiful bed upstairs provided fresh views of the woods. Cheryl was lovely and made us feel welcome. The choccy on arrival and breakfast hamper was perfect. Cant speak highly enough. Close to township but far... More

Excellent experience! Would definitely recommend Cottages Monreale, if you would like to feel that you are special and want to be pampered and just chill out. Dining in or eating out were both great options. Having a private massage and spa is just heaven! Will be back that's for sure. Thankyou Cheryl and Karl and Team.

Catherine and I have had the pleasure of visiting Monreale estate on a number of occasions and have always found the property to be excellent. The position and environment of the cottages are ideal for a secluded getaway especially when seeking good surroundings representative of the best that the beautiful Dandenong Ranges offers visitors. The hosts are delightful and attentive;... More

(We had previously stayed in a B & B, but left there after not such a nice experience). So I searched the internet and came upon views of Cottages Monreale, Sassafras...5 star..wow!... More

Had a lovely stay recently at Monreale for the weekend and both hosts Karl and Cheryl were wonderful and very welcoming. The cottage had everything you could need, including wine on arrival. A very romantic setting, and the peaceful surroundings totally relax you well away from the city. Even the open fire was easy to use, with the help of... More

(I also loved reading... More

My wife and I had the most wonderful visit to Cottages Monreale last year. The accommodation was excellent, comfortable and warm. The staff were welcoming and kind, and the information they provided concerning the area was extremely helpful. I strongly recommend Cottages Monreale to anyone who wants a romantic weekend in the hills.
