We had a quaint little cottage with a lovely hot out door spa. Jonathon (the manager ) could not do enough for us to ensure we really enjoyed our stay. I would recommend Credo cottages for anyone wanting a winter get away or a summer relax

We had a lovely stay with our four legged child in preparation for our wedding. It meant so much to us to be able to have the pooch close during the wedding weekend. The place is neat and nice. Will definitely return.

A group of 3 couples just spent a weekend here. We had a great weekend and the little apartment is completely adequate but we felt it was very overpriced and poor value. The place is right on the main road so the sound of traffic was quite an issue, the beds are small and the dining furniture is picnic table... More

We stayed in Credo 2 for one night over the weekend. We payed $600 for one night in a 2 bedroom cottage. You would think for this type of money you would get all the luxuries, but you don't even get an air conditioner! The floorboards throughout the whole cottage creak like you wouldn't believe. The lawns around the property... More

The place was great however we believe it was haunted. We heard footsteps/scurrying along the floor at about 5am which woke us absolutely terrified. When we checked there was nothing there. Would not recommend.

This is the second time my husband and I have stayed at Credo Cottages and we've loved it each time. Both cottages we stayed in had beautiful views, comfortable beds and couches, and relaxing spas. It's a two minute walk to all gift shops, cafés and restaurants. Our favourites being Kelly's Bar and Kitchen and Ranges Cafe. Elle Naturale also... More

We spent a night at Credo and found the accommodation very comfortable and welcoming. The attention to detail made our brief stay hassle-free. On a cold September evening we arrived to a warm and pleasant cottage. We highly recommend staying at Credo when visiting The Dandenongs.

It is also only half renovated. Do not expect luxury or elegance. It is not worth the price. I would suggest camping offers better value. We could hear every single noise outside the cottage from vehicles on the road, peoples conversations outside. We could have stayed in the city on a highway with the window open. Finally any emergency support... More

My fiancé, our two pups and I recently stayed at Credo Cottage 4 for a weekend getaway. We were looking forward to a relaxing night away in front of the gas log fire, enjoying a few glasses of red. What drew us to these cottages was the pet friendly policy. This made it less hassle for us trying to arrange... More

Recently had a one night stop over at Credo and stayed in cottage No. 4 - which was clean warm and quiet with eateries close by. I made the booking late in the day and management were very accommodating and I was supplied with informative directions as to how to get to the retreat. The added bonus of meal vouchers... More
