“Lunch with no taste”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013 via mobile

We visited this facility for lunch on the weekend against gong to the nearby pub as it was promoted out the front as a family Bistro. What a disappointment and low level of cleanliness.

We ordered the burger for my two children and my wife. I had the salad. The blue vein cheese salad was ok but not worth $15 plus canned beat root??? The burgers where tasteless and again for $15 my wife could have made a feast for that cost. The flavor in the patty and one piece of toast hardly constitutes a burger with a few leaves of salad and some tomatoes. in my view it should have been a bun. the water glasses were filthy plus one was cracked. I had to wipe them clean myself with a grubby tea towel.

Had to go to the Bakery at Seven Hills as the kids were still hungry.

Sorry but should have gone to the pub. $60 was not value for money plus the quality and cleanliness a lot to be desired. Wont be visiting again.

Stayed January 2013, traveled with family

We had a great stay, the accomodation was really comfortable and the location is perfect with breakfast in the cafe, dinner at Terroir, another meal at The Rising Sun Hotel, all within about 50 metres.

Marjorie greeted us with a bottle of riesling on arrival and this set the tone for our stay. We enjoyed our breakfast in the cafe each morning, nothing too much trouble and Marjorie happy to fill us in with local information and a friendly chat.

The village of Auburn is small, but great for walking around and very close to some of the best wineries. On our second day we ventured closer to Clare.

We would recommend Cygnets to anyone who wants a comfortable place to stay, a very generous and lively host in Marjorie and the convenience of walking just a few metres for dinner at night.

This is the second time that my partner and I have stayed at Cygnets and we will definitely be back. The property is charming and the room is cosy and comfortable. Cooked breakfast was simple but delicious and the scones must not be missed! We had the most relaxing weekend there. Thank you Marjorie and the other lovely lady whose name I did not catch. :)

We stayed with friends and had a great time at Cygnets. The staff in the cafe were very friendly & helpful and we found the location really good. Breakfast was nice and filling & the coffee was great. The bed was really comfortable. On the down side, we found dead flies in the wineglasses and the sofa bed in the living room could do with replacing. With just a bit more attention to cleanliness this could be a really great place.
