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

We recently spent 2 nights at the Allumbah Pocket Cottages and thoroughly loved it. The cottages are spacious and well appointed (with kitchenettes), and the garden and common areas are delightful. Rob, our host, was very helpful and offered restaurant advice along with a happy hour glass of wine. Yungaburra is a charming little town and the Allumbah Pocket Cottages... More

Rob and Melanie were great hosts. Happy hour wine, great facilities and nothing too much trouble. We had 5 wonderful nights there and would definately recommend. The location is terrific and we were lucky to see platypus in the nearby creek.

Our stay was only a short one (1 night) but we really loved everything about it... The host was very friendly and helpful and the cottages were really cosy and well appointed. They gave a real sense of privacy and I can't recommend them highly enough! Worth a visit without a doubt.

Great choice of accommodation, lovely hosts, beautiful outdoor area for guests to relax. Rooms were fabulous with a nice breakfast treat waiting on arrival. Beautifully presented decor, you couldn't have asked for more inviting, relaxing and conveniently located accommodation.

These are very nicely appointed self-contained, heritage themed cottages, in a great location in Yungaburra. Roadworks on the Gillies Highway made getting there more frustrating than it needed to be, but once we were there we quickly forgot about those. We had a wonderful one night stay, with a slight potential for an issue as the hot water stopped working,... More

Well-appointed cozy private cottage in a great location for exploring Tablelands or just a quiet stay listening to the birds and rain. Central in Yungaburra, walking distance to Platypus viewing platform, shops and restaurants. Lovely hosts. Highly recommended!

My daughter and I stayed here for 3 nights and loved our stay. The cottages are very quiet and private and are well appointed with a kitchenette,a small dining table, king sized bed, big bathroom with spa bath, air conditioning and pot-belly stove for those colder nights. The country cottage decor was appropriate for it's location in lovely, historic Yungaburra.... More

My wife and I stayed for five nights in Cottage 1 in March 2014. We found the self contained cottage perfect for us during our stay as Yungaburra is a lovely little village and very centrally located for all that the magnificent Atherton Tablelands has to offer. I loved the lovely big bathroom and managed a couple of spa baths... More
