We stayed in the largest of the cottages - Cotswald Cottage - for 4 nights. It is a lovely, quirky cottage which was very comfortable and full of character. The location was fantastic, being right in the centre of the village. Breakfast provisions were generous. I found it a bit cold in some of the rooms, but the heater in... More

Dear Melinda, Thank you so much for your hospitality and allowing us to stay in the Lavender Cottage last minute. We had a fantastic time. Its a real gem, cathedral ceilings in the bedroom, spa was great, quality products supplied, we loved the provisions for breakfast and enjoyed the Bacon and Eggs + variety of teas, yoghurt, juice and coffee....

Cute cosy cottage, very clean and everything ready on arrival. Quite expensive for what you actually get - some maintenance required. Had to be careful that the shelves did not fall off walls, coffee table top not attached to table etc not sure about the glass bathroom door. Didn't really like the list of house rules for guests including the... More

My partner and I stayed for 1 night at Como Cottages and immediately wished we'd booked for longer! The 'Caretakers Cottage' was absolutely charming, with the most gorgeous views from the bed out into the garden. Upon arriving we were met with a warm, friendly reception by the owner, who was kind enough to drop what he was doing and... More

Hi and thank you for writing in. We do have a wash the dishes policy (or at least scrape and rinse) as there are a few people out there who think it's ok to leave food (sometimes overnight) on plates and in pots. We do ask our housekeepers to check the dishes to make sure they are cleaned right. Brett... More

My partner and I stayed in Mills Cottage (one bedroom cottage), one of several cottages on the acreage. Brett our host met us within minutes and checked us in with no fuss at a last minute stay. It was like stepping back into a different era with amazing attention to detail and a host of different old rustic objects hidden... More

Brett takes pride in his gardens and has just spent the past few weeks building a new home for the chicks the girls got for Christmas. This has meant that he has been there to chat with guests and he's been loving it! There is nothing better to him than to show people around and share a story. This week,... More

We stayed in Lavender Cottage - family of 4 with two young kids (7 and 5) - for 3 nights. The accommodation was clean and cosy with 2 bedrooms. It was a cooler day when we arrived and the heating had been turned on ahead of our arrival, which along with some music playing was a nice touch. The Spa... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. I must admit that we only had wifi installed in those 2 cottages the week before and the modem is located in the cottage next door. When I checked it, it had been switched off at the wall! (We have a note in there now). We do stock up... More

My partner and I spent New Year 2014/15 in the Como Cottage. It is so cosy, beautifully renovated and - best of all - the owners allowed me to bring my two cats (who spent most of the stay hiding under the bed!). The little kitchen was great and we spent a very comfortable evening on the second day curled... More

We are pleased that your stay with the cars turned out well, bear in mind to other pet owners, that we only accept non-shedding, non barking animals (purring cats is an asset). Not all of our cottages are pet friendly so please enquire first. We are spoilled for choice up here for eateries and boutiques shops and are only a... More

We visited Olinda for an overnight getaway this week with another couple and baby. Although we hadn't stayed at Como Cottages previously, we thought that Cotswald Cottage would be a better fit for the group. It was a great choice. We were pleasantly surprised at the amount of space - there is a separate dining and lounge, as well as... More

I have stayed at Como about five times and it's somewhere I never get tired off. It is only an hour or so out of Melbourne but it feels like a world away. The forest is beautiful, the cottages are beautiful. I feel like I step back in time. I've stayed in three different cottages at Como and I cannot... More

My girlfriend and I spent one night in the cottswald cottage at Como cottages. The close proximity to the cafés and shops was good. The open fire and spa were perfect for a freezing Melbourne night. All in all a very comfortable stay and will highly recommend it to our friends in Melbourne.

One night is never enough, but if that is all you have, then you may as well be close to everything - yet a world away! More
