Stayed in the Mills cottage. The place was lovely, but felt it was overpriced for what you received, in comparison to other places in the area we have stayed. Hot breakfast provisions were enough for one night (we stayed for 2), shampoo and conditioner were the same. It was late and cold when we arrived, and had to start the... More

We absolutely loved our stay, the log fire and the charm of the Mills cottage made for a great stay. Lots of lovely additional touches including electric blankets, lots of firewood and breakfast provisions. We will be back!

Amazing atmosphere, quite & relaxing. A pre warmed cottage with beautiful music playing, and a generous platter with dips, cheeses, antipasto, & a bottle of bubbles was our greeting. An open fire and an hour long massage followed by a spa was a highlight! Within walking distance to shops & cafe's or short drives to many attractions the Dandenongs have... More

Recently stayed in Como Cottage for a couple of nights and enjoyed every minute. Como Cottage is absolutely charming and the service provided by Melinda & Brett was fantastic. Olinda & Mt Dandenong are beautiful places to stay & visit & provide a sense that you're in the middle of nowhere without the hassle of actually being in the middle... More

Thank you so much for the excellent review you took the time to give us. We will look into the heater noise. No one has ever said anything about that before so could need some attention. We are due to start the open fires, so please do come back and have one so you may not need the gas one! More

We stayed in the 'Mills Cottage' for three nights over the Australia Day weekend and we loved the cozy, rustic feel the cottage has. Lots of space to cuddle. The location is great for trips all around the Dandenong Ranges. Only slight downside is the traffic on the Tourist road nearby. Other than that - complete must see.

We recently stayed in the Mills Cottage, for just one night, on a little escape from Melbourne. It is absolutely gorgeous, with vintage decorating in a unique style. The owners were lovely and helpful with any questions we had, the location was convenient (close by everything) and the setting was so peaceful. There was a bit of noise from the... More

Brett puts a lot of thought into making the cottages that little bit different to other accommodations. There is plenty for your eyes to feast on and we are glad you made the most of our humble , romantic cottage. More

Excellent facilities, we stayed in the Lavender Cottage, which had a beautiful peaceful interior, extensive selection of DVD's, lovely stereo system, our kids were continuously amused. Brett and Melinda really thought of everything, lovely garden out the front so the children could play. Location was also fantastic... More

We stayed in the Mills Cottage at Como Cottages and it was simply beautiful, rustic, and full of character. The attention to detail in renovating and decorating this cottage is a credit to the owners, Brett and Melinda and we will definitely be back, hopefully sooner rather than latter. Excellent customer service from Brett from first phone call to book... More

Wow, thank you for your review. We love it when people love what we have here. It has always been a holiday destination right from the early days in 1912, so I'm sure the original owners would be proud too. Brett has made it has life's work to provide a comfortable and romantic piece of history and something different and... More

I absolutely love staying at Como Cottages. I have stayed at Cotswald Cottage, the largest of the bunch, two times. The first time was a quiet getaway with my partner while the second time was a friends weekend with three couples. The owners clearly care about their investment and in making sure that your visit is beautiful. The home itself... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We have two properties in the picturesque Olinda village. One with our romantic cottages for couples and the other for families and groups. We can sleep 22 ppl so it's also perfect for wedding groups and close to lots of the wedding venues up here. The cottage gardens are fern filled and established, luscious wonderlands, a different world to the city and suburbs. Each cottage is self-contained and private and has outdoor decks/balconies as well has well appointed interiors. Open fires, spas and baths add to the experience. We are walking distance (500m) to the boutique shops, cafes and restaurants - so many to choose from too. The Yarra Valley and wineries are a hop, skip and a jump (in the car) or you can get a private tour from here. Whether you're planning a romantic getaway or a family break, we can help you plan your trip. Our day spa ellenaturaleolinda is also just a short stroll away. ... more   less
