This is our third stay in these cottages. We have just arrived back from 9 days staying in the beautiful irish cottage. A charming cosy warm workers cottage with four poster bed, spa and fireplace. We will definitely stay again and love sharing a fireplace with the local resident cats.

Comfortable cottages, only a short walk in the CBD. Well appointed and delightfully quirky. The fires are sensational and you can cook your own toast on a fork. Bathrooms are well equipped including oils and soaps for the spa Don't forget to sample the port and chocolates

Loved our stay here and had a giggle at the cat using our car to warm up. Nothing was a problem here, clean, beautiful themed accommodation and most of all warm and inviting. This place can not be faulted. Highly recommended.

A truly romantic hideaway. Having previously stayed in The Boudoir, Camelot and The English cottage, my husband booked The Irish cottage as a surprise to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Lovely personal touches, comfy four tester bed, roomy spa and tranquil setting made for a wonderful night.

We booked Bonnie Doon cottage for a week. Excellent amenities, comfortable and spacious. Breakfast items were provided in the cottage, cereal, fruit, yoghurt, bread etc. When booking I let them know we had a food allergy and they were more than happy to cater for us. There was washing powder provided for $2, again perfect we didn't need to purchase... More
