We stayed in the Watergarden room, which was very outdated (and not in a "country living" style way). Mismatched interior and the spa bath (which was a big incentive for us to book this place) was dirty and full of some sort of ash. When we arrived, we were simply told by the man at reception that "the keys were... More

This email was forwarded to the couple the day they departed: Good Afternoon........................... I have just read your guest survey and thought I would respond immediately as there appears to be some dissatisfaction in your note. It is quite unusual to receive such negative comments as Watergarden Cottage generally entertains very happy guests. Our accommodation is not modern, it is... More

We bought a two night stay on a package for my son and his partner and on a separate two night package for my husband, son, partner and myself...in both cases we could not get the two nights booked together. We ended up staying for one night only as that was all that would work... We had the cottage with... More

Booked a 2 night getaway that included champagne and Lindt chocolates upon arrival. The champagne was $6.00 from Aldi and the chocolate was tasteless Aldi Chocolate, not Lindt as promised. Totally false advertising. There was zero phone and wifi connection, and no telephone in the room, so I was unable to contact anyone.Should not market themselves as luxury accommodation.

How lovely! The rain on the tin roof and different birds chirping. We felt like we were in a tree house looking out the windows at the beautiful trees and ferns. Listening to the water trickle along the little brook. All the little elegant touches and yummy breakfast made our stay relaxing and refreshing.

Spent a lovely weekend at Cottages Monreale with friends. We stayed in a two bedroom cottage which had a large lounge & kitchen. The cabin was very clean but did need a bit of repair. The couple who ran the facility were lovely and extemely helpful. Would definately recommend the cottages.

Stayed in the Watergarden cottage, was lovely and quiet, the spa worked, and wifi worked, very secluded and relaxing. Lovely lady at reception, top service. Only comment would be that the DVD player (which is a combo with the TV) would only play one of my DVDs, perhaps it needs looking at.

My partner and I had a lovely weekend here earlier in the year and it was sensational. A beautiful cottage in beautiful gardens. We opted for the serenity cottage which included a loft bedroom. Very romantic. Adding to the ambiance was the beautiful wood heater with plenty of firewood left to keep us warm. The property included DVD player which... More

We stayed here in May. If you are looking for a relaxing break this will definitely fit. Everything you need to make meals and. shops close by to get supplies. This is a really beautiful area but cold, take warm clothes. The cottages are not close together so you have privacy. Would stay here agin if in the area.
