The room didn't have a much of a view of the ocean (just a little if you stood at the right spot, but overall we were very happy with our stay!! The place is less then 2 mins drive form town (which is beautiful) and we had a great weekend away!! Only issue was Jacuzzi temperature seemed a little low.... More

We stayed in the Fishpen cottage on the first weekend of May, and had a fabulous stay despite the weather turning miserable. The cottage had sloped ceilings which made it feel extra spacious, it was very clean and tidy with all the basic appliances and comforts you need for a weekend away. I like the suggestion of supplying bath salts... More

We had a lovely one night stay here. The cottage (Bass Cottage) was just gorgeous. A modern white kitchen with everything you need, opening up to an open plan dining room and lounge with a lovely log burner in a nice slate fireplace. There was a TV with surround sound and bluray. The bed was nice, big and very comfortable.... More

Wow - what a comprehensive review. Thank you for all the information provided, hopefully it will help other guests see what we offer in our cottages. It is useful to point out they are self catering cottages, so probably not stocked with all the items you might find in a motel but the bathroom does have a small bottle of... More

Very relaxing & clean. All appliances you would ever need as well as BBQ. The cottages are tucked away in a small wood. Nice & quite, 10 minutes from the centre of Lakes Entrance, 10 minutes from the local winery. Good combination :-)

Coming from England we have a preconceived idea of what a cottage is. By our standards these are not cottages, these are palaces! We have stayed in many self catering establishments in many countries and frankly the facilities and contents here have now set the bar very high indeed. The kitchen could easily be used to prepare a large dinner... More

We love it when our international guests take the time to review us when they return home - thank you for your appreciation. We acknowledge the comment about the pool pump. Most months it is turned off much earlier but in periods of high pool useage and in January/February this year when we were getting heatwaves and debris from bushfires,... More

The cottage layout was excellent. Kitchen and bathroom clean and well equipped. Verandah facility worked well. The addition of a communal BBQ and pool made the stay very worthwhile. My only comment would be to remember it is self catering so the additional breakfast package is minimal.

Thank you so much for reviewing our cottages and giving some good tips. Some guests do find it hard to distinguish the different accommodation types - particularly serviced apartments (daily clean and restock), B & B (your breakfast cooked for you or a hamper of food is sometimes provided instead) and self catering/self contained, which we are. The start up... More

As part of a preplanned trip down the eastern coast all the way to Melbourne, we only stayed 1 night at Waverley House Cottages. But we would have loved to stay longer! Well equipped, high-quality and tastefully furnished cottage - in beautiful surroundings. As we came a bit out of season, the spa and pool were not opened. But in... More

The moment I arrived I felt comfortable. The fishpen cottage is perfect for couple. Warm setting, comfy bed, great kitchen and great spa bath ! The hosts are very friendly and the gardens make the place amazing. The place is close to the main shopping strip and close to other great sight seeing experiences!! Hopefully make it back again!
