We had the Camelot cottage. The bathroom especially the spa was great. The spa was very deep and large with air jets in the floor except that they blew cold air as it didn't have a heat pump. The bedroom was a bit of a problem as the long side of the bed was against the wall so one person had to crawl over the other to get in and out. Due to it being a 4 poster bed you also could not get out of the end of the bed.
The continental breakfast was average. We stayed 4 nights and though the breakfast was "refreshed" on the second day, this meant that only the crossiants we had eaten were replaced. The bread was not replaced with fresh bread.
The cottage was not serviced for the 4 days we were there, not even clean towels or a vacumn. The hosts would have known when were not in as our vehicle was visible from the reception when we were there. The living area was quite cramped with the TV on the kitchen bench. Even with the blinds and curtains open it was quite dark.
It was in a good location as it was in walking distance to the CBD and it was quiet.
Parking was a little tight, only 2 medium size cars would fit next to each in the parking area that was shared with another cottage.
There was an outdoor courtyard but it wasn't very prviate or inviting.
