Melanie always makes you feel welcome with her manner and hospitality. The cottage itself is beautifully appointed for self-catering. The grounds are beautiful, and the bed?! My wife compares all beds wherever we stay to the one at Allumbah and 95% don't cut the mustard! By the way, it's not an hotel.

Private, spacious, tastefully furnished, and very well appointed. Excellent bed. Liked the communal indoor/outdoor lounge area, the BBQ area, and hospitality provided by the management. Nice little touches like complimentary glass of wine in the evening, flowers, & art. Great value for money and nice central location. Lighting is fairly soft and warm which creates a nice atmosphere although not... More

Beautifully presented inside and out, the cottages provide good value for money. We enjoyed the spa, the excellent location right in the heart of town and the DVDs. We did not use the fire, as being from Sydney we thought we had returned to summer. The wifi was a problem and I found myself over at the BBQ trying to... More

Melanie v, Owner at Allumbah Pocket Cottages, responded to this review

Thank you so much for your good review. I appreciate the time you took to let people know about our property. You were excellent guests, leaving the cottage immaculate. I thought I might take the opportunity to clarify a couple of things you mentioned, so future guests don't miss out on some of the amenities and services provided. The hot... More

We weren't expecting too much based on the rate but it was a lovely surprise to find the cottage so private with a fireplace and cosy lounge room with a big range of DVDs. Bed was huge and comfy, great pillows :) Used the spa bath everyday and while I would recommend taking your own bubbles, don't understand all the... More

Had a lovely stay at Allumbah Cottages over the June long week-end. The cottages exceeded our expectations - particularly in terms of their size - too often properties appear large in their promos and end up being cramped and boxy. The grounds too were immaculate with some lovely guest amenities including a BBQ area with Gazebo, guest Lounge and some... More

We had a really nice stay here. The cottages and gardens are very cute, and really quiet as they are well back from the road. The bed was very comfortable. The food in the onsite cafe was delicious and really good value. Like some other reviews, I was also a bit underwhelmed at the goat milk bath products as this... More

We stayed I a lovely cottage, neat and clean with a charming country feel. The staff were very helpful, the gardens and common lounge lovely. We had a coffee and muesli breakfast in their cafe which was delicious. Overall a great experience and right up the top of my favourites list.

We wanted to spend some time in Yungaburra so decided to book this gorgeous accommodation some months back. We arrived at the property around lunch time, met the Manager, Kevin, who is so delightful and checked in to our cottage which was at the back amongst a tropical garden which was very well maintained. The cottage had everything you needed... More

We stayed for 2 nights with our daughter, son in law and 2,small children. We had everything we needed and more. Pretty gardens, safe for children, very clean, comfortable cottages, could have stayed longer. We were made very welcome, nothing too much trouble for the owner; don't know where else you'd have complimentary wine and all the additional bits you... More
