We stayed at the cottage for 17 days. Martin and Berys were great hosts. The even had the heating on for our arrival and had bought travel cards for all of us. If there was any problem, Martin would attend to it immediately. We would definitely stay there again if we come to Melbourne again.

“very comfortable”
Reviewed August 6, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Martin is a very accommodating and generous host. The breakfast hamper lasted me a week and there was a cupboard full of extra breakfast food.
The only reason I am not giving it 5 stars is the wifi signal was very weak. I had to sit outside to pick up my emails.

“Wonderful place to stay”

We stayed at Askrigg Cottage for 16 nights whilst visiting our daughter in Melbourne. The cottage is very clean and comfortable and has everything in it you might require, it also has free wifi. The cottage is in a great location in Moonee Ponds and is only a short stroll to the trams, train and lovely town centre.
Martyn And Berys are great , very warm ,friendly and helpful. They supplied a breakfast hamper for our arrival which was greatly appreciated. We visited Sydney and Brisbane during our stay and Martyn went out of his way to take us to the airport.
We felt comfortable and at home in the cottage and will definately stay there when we visit Australia again. Thanks again Martyn and Berys.
