Recently my friend and I made a booking to stay overnight at Credo Cottages for a relaxing getaway. We chose Credo 3 due to the outdoor spa and also due to the accommodation being pet friendly. Management advised us that check in time was 2pm and asked us to phone when we were at the base of the Tourist Road... More

We booked this room after researching many in the area, and settled on this because of the location. Firstly we found the place was difficult to find. It took us about an hour to look for it and eventually a tradie told us where to go. Yes there is parking space across the street, a street which is the busiest... More

We finally found a contemporary style place to stay in the Dandenongs with all the conveniences to make a long weekend perfect. Credo 1 had a lovely intimate garden surrounded by towering Mountain Ash trees which can be viewed from the lounge glass doors or luxuriating in the spa via the picture window. We had our young son with us... More

A spontaneous decision to stay in the Dandenongs for a hopeful view of snow overnight found us at Credo. Perfectly situated just south of the intersection of Mt Dandenong Tourist Road & Olinda-Monbulk Road, where there are a lovely range of shops and eateries; so no need to drive anywhere. We stayed in Credo 1 which was fantastic. It was... More

We stayed at the Credo 4 cottage and found it to be very relaxing. It was toasty warm and clean. There was tea and coffee, plus all the necessary utensils for our own cooking. We were provided with extra towels, etc, when we asked for them. Jonathan was lovely and he met us when we got a bit lost trying... More

A group of 3 couples, we found Credo 3 very relaxing and pleasant for a night away from it all. The house isn't easy to find in Olinda where there are no street lamps at night, and google maps seemed to place it on the wrong side of the road, but Jonathan was able to point us in the right... More

Poor signage, although the Credo restaurant was easily visible, the accommodation was not. Parking not available on site, or at least we were not told of any. Had to park across the road. As soon as we entered the cottage, an unpleasant odour was obvious. I liken it to the smell of closed up house where there has been a... More

Had to call caretaker/owner upon arrival as the king size room was locked off. The booking said king size. He arrived soon after to unlock and I also advised the pool was full of bugs and leaves. I assumed it would be cleaned after each guest. He did clean it however seemed very put out like we'd disturbed him. He... More
