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.

We loved our stay. Georgeous little private cottages in garden setting with complimentary wine and nibbles provided in outdoor area and breakfast in the cafe. Exquisite river walk near by to see platypus if lucky. Beautiful little town which seemed to also have the care and attention to detail provided by our hosts. I would highly recommend both the cottages... More

I really liked the nice and clean cottage. It has a well equipped small kitchen, a TV with a small but good dvd selection and a big bath tub. There is a shared, open living room lounge with fox TV and that was the Best, a bbq grill with sauces and spices for free use. We bought excellent meat at... More

Allumbah Pocket Cottages has so many positive aspects, we have stayed there twice & really appreciate the fact that management allows dogs. I feel that the Doggy rules are very generous in comparison to other places. There were a few things that I thought could be done better....it is my belief that anyone in the hospitality industry should welcome feedback... More

Hi Trish, having been warned off a right of reply I will not respond except to let future guests know we had the TV aerial changed yesterday as it was definately faulty (old age we were told), so happy to say we have eliminated the scrambling; and that as per the information on our website, our little Milly Molly Mandy...
