I can only echo the previous reviews. What a wonderful place to stay. I loved lighting and feeding the fire with red gum wood. The cottages really are superbly equipped and the breakfast supplies were great. We would have loved to stay for longer and hope to return one day. Standing outside at night and seeing a stunning sky studded... More

We stayed one night in cottage #2 which had everything we needed. George provided plenty of wood for the fire which kept the whole cottage warm and snug throughout the very chilly night. Lots of great walks near by and an easy stroll into town. The grounds are kept in immaculate condition and each cottage has its own BBQ area.... More

I stayed here for 1 night and wish I could have stayed longer. Very peaceful & relaxing atmosphere, very modern inside and clean. There is not much to do in the town and I would recommend bringing your own groceries or stopping in a bigger town on the way. I will definitely be going back to these cottages.

I had a great stay at the cottages. It was lovely & peaceful and the surroundings were beautiful. George was most accommodating and helpful and special attention was put on having the wood fires lit all ready for me when I returned home from a long cold day spent as a stall holder at the Hamilton Sheepvention. A would recommend... More

Well! Previous reviewers of this destination all seem to have had a great time...and surprise, surprise! So did we. Echo previous praise but enough cannot be said about the attention to detail by George and Carolyn..the presentation of the property was superb. The gardens, amenities and all else were spot on... a statement by them really. This is our home,... More

Feeding the chickens and collecting eggs. Great location to go with couple of families since there is plenty space. Central location too. On our way to Adelaide we wanted to... More

This is great accommodation in a very well maintained garden setting with quite a lot of native plants and a few exotics. We stopped here in 2010 for one night and liked it so much we decided to stay 4 nights this time. The cottage was roomy with two separate bedrooms. The lounge, dining and kitchen was a single large... More

3 of us arrived from Melbourne about 6.30pm and George quickly got the fire going which was great. As per other comments, cabins great well equipped and very comfortable. Can't say enough about George. We went tiki touring on Saturday and unfortunately had to divert several times due to an accident. Even more unfortunate was the scene had not been... More

Very well appointed and comfortable cottages. Close to the city centre and a 5 minute drive to the Royal Mail Hotel, George and Carolyn are fantastic hosts and nothing is too much trouble. You can see why it gets great ratings and comments. Will definitely stay here again.

I echo all the sentiments before me - excellent and friendly customer service (but not so in your face that they bother you too much), incredibly clean and well appointed, very comfy beds. I'd definitely go back.
