My husband and I are from Cairns and recently spent two nights at this gorgeous tropical retreat. It's so peaceful and private, the cottages have old world charm, tastefully furnished with a fabulous king sized bed, spotlessly clean and the bathroom is huge with a lovely spa. The owners Rob and Melanie are so friendly and obliging, the goats milk... More

The soap an shampoo very tiny, cottage not serviced at all twoels not changed at all, spa stone cold... More

We were very 'underwhelmed' by this posting. Lots of unfair criticism which we now wear forever. For the world to know.... we supply our guests with goat milk soap and shampoo and conditioner. it costs us about 3 times more to supply this than commercial off the rack hotel toiletries; the soap is small but the same size as you...

We were very excited about our stay after reading the website with promises of goats milk toiletries, beautiful bread baskets and luxury accommodation. Unfortunately it wasn't quite this - only 2 pieces of small soap and the shampoo and conditioner in large container in shower, no body lotions or spa bubbles. The bread basket was a piece of brown bread... More

We are sorry that your stay was marred by disappointment. The two areas you raised were the toiletries are substandard; but they are all goat milk, which costs us more than the off the rack selection, and we buy local, hence unable to source goat milk hand lotions in the sizes required... the shampoo and conditioner is goatmilk and in...

The Allumbah Pocket Cottages, was a pleasant surprise. The room was spotless, with everything thought out by the hosts, including fresh milk, cold water, tea and all different sorts of pillows to choose from, soft to very hard. I was impressed by the lovely manicured grounds with lovely hammock seats to relax in or you can enjoy the outdoor tv... More

My husband and I stayed last weekend. The cottages are lovely. On beautiful well kept grounds. The cottages are private clean and cozy. Was so nice to have a fire and look out at our own private courtyard garden. Enjoyed a spa also looking out though glass louvers to a beautiful garden. The bathroom was spacious and bed was comfy...

The four of us stayed in two very warm and comfortable cottages.They even split the bed into two twins for my two sons. The spa tub was great after a long ride and so was the fireplace. The bed was sooo nice and comfortable and the baked bread a great start to the day - we ate it on our... More

The cottage we stayed was very neat and cozy. With the fireplace inside it had a nice woody smell, which I really like. The bathroom was huge having both a shower and a water massage bathtub. They also had candles for creating an even more special atmosphere for those who want to take a relaxing bath.The beds were especially comfy,... More

Just lovely. The large spa bath was a welcome bonus after a long wet ride on our motorcycle. The cottage was lovely, everything you would need and the baked bread divine. Happy hour was a nice surprise and we enjoyed the wine. The only small negative is that the firebox leaks like a sieve but we used the heat pump... More

Owners were very friendly and welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. Cottages are very roomy and included a spa bath, our own private balcony. Happy hour in the community lounge area from 5-6 daily. Would not hesitate in returning or recommending these.

I like cottages that don't aim to be like a magazine but focus on creating a home form your own home. Allumbah is just that. The cottages offer a romantic , rustic and comfortable escape in the middle of the small town. Whether you want movies, a fire and the country air or a relaxing spa and warm bed the... More
