Perfect for 10 of us to have a few days away to celebrate Melbourne Cup! Rooms beautifully kept, private stunning gardens, excellent communal area for the TV, lounge & basic kitchen facilities. Really lovely service from our hosts who helped organise the catering too!

If you want a quiet getaway this is the place. Each cottage tucked away from each other. There is a common area to meet others. Birds can be heard everywhere. However not much open around area on Monday night. Hotel has some specials. Lovely area

Found these lovely cottages by good luck as we drifted through the lovely little town of Yungaburra and made an on-the-spur decision to stay overnight. Comfortable, beautifully appointed and with a delightful bathroom. Ran a big bath, lit the candles, opened the shutters, and relaxed completely. Bed was very comfortable too. Recommended.

Stayed two nights whilst in Yungaburra for work. Rooms were everything we needed whilst away from home, well appointed and very comfortable. Price was excellent given the high quality of the accommodation. Hosts accommodated us by opening up the cafe at 6.30am as there were a number of corporate guests staying there who needed to get to a conference early.... More

The well appointed cottages are clean, tidy, with their own spa and are located in the centre of town. A short walk from restaurants and the hotel. You can relax in the gardens or by the communal spa, meet other guests at the "happy hour" as well as your excellent hosts Shane and Brenda who made us more than welcome.

The cottages are delightful, they have everything you want and more. Comfortable beds, nice big spa bath, even down to the candles. DVD player, CDs to listen to. Close to everything in Yungaburra. The outdoor spa was great, and the guest lounge and happy hour are a nice touch.

Our cosy and comfortable cottage, well equipped and spotlessly clean, was the perfect place for a relaxing stay in Yungaburra. A stone's throw from restaurants, coffee-shops and the tourist info centre. We were made to feel most welcome by Melanie and Rob and felt totally at home there An aspect we really enjoyed was the offer of wine and nibblies... More

A 2 night stay in the cottages which have a great set up and in the centre of Yungaburra. Cosy and clean with everything you need. Shane was very helpful and the coffee in the cafe was good. Free wifi was fast. Spa bath a bonus, lovely goats milk toiletries and friendly cat!

Rob and Mel are great hosts - hardworking and good operators. They run a beautiful little boutique operation in a wonderful little town- Yungaburra. The villas are clean and with great facilities. I love staying there.
