Owner is very friendly. The cottage is clean with all the modern technology (wifi, digital TV etc). Bed is very comfortable. Hint, Quiet town and not too many restaurants open on the weekends. Make sure you make dinner reservation.

Stayed one night, there were 6 of us in the group. The 3 bedroom cottage had been booked out a month earlier, so we booked the 2-bedroom Cherry cottage. The reception was warm & friendly, we were given a map and shown various options for places to eat, and things to do. The cottage was quaint and had a fully-equipped... More

The reception was very friendly and accommodating. They were helpful with a dinner option. Internet was an extra ten dollars, but the room was very economical so it was totally acceptable. The two bedroom cottage was very clean and kept current. It was well stocked and had a great washer and dryer. The location was very nice with a very... More

Having made a booking for what I thought was a cottage found on arrival it was a room. However we were able to upgrade for an additional $40.00 for the night. The cottage was roomy, two bedrooms, great kitchen and dining facilities. I thought the cottage was a bit expensive but my granddaughter had been on a promise of staying... More

We booked a 4 bed what we thought would be a cabin, to find a rather cramped 3 bed single room of a 3 apartment house. Quality furnishings and a microwave but no sink! ...and that was it! Over-priiced considering a kind of Continental breakfast was +$10 and even milk etc +$4. Maybe we had been spoiled with other venues... More

We stayed 2 nights at Dove Cottage. It was a 2 bedroom cottage with full kitchen, laundry, lounge and dining area. The cottage was spotlessly clean and the lounge and bed comfortable. The only noise to disturb was the sound of the happy birds in the well manicured garden outside. We would definitely return.
