We stayed at Charlotte's Cottages for two nights 29th & 30th Jun 2012. The weather was miserable, but managed on Saturday to get a few hours of sun. The town is lovely and even with the bad weather and the resulting head cold; we really enjoyed staying at the cottages whilst in Echuca. We must say for such a small town, it has lovely people and food.
Charlotte's Cottages is a clean and tidy place to stay. We believe not suitable for children, however for a couple who would like a quiet stay at a charming renovated old style cottage type building, this is the place to stay. Walking distance to the center of town is only five minutes.
The rooms are spacious, very high ceilings, large modern bathrooms and the breakfast was absolutely magnificent and plentiful. Beds very comfortable.
The hosts Neil & Jill were absolutely charming, couldn’t ask for better hosts.
The negatives … mmmm … that’s going to be hard. It can get very cold as it is an old building with twelve foot high ceilings, but that is part of the charm. The floors are creaky, but again part of the charm. If we were really picky then the rooms don’t have televisions, however have TV antenna points. Neil stated he could put a TV in the room if we wanted it. We connected our laptop and watched TV a little, only to switch it off shortly afterwards as the silence was lovely. Must admit with so much to do in the center of the town and just enjoying the tranquility of the cottages we found we really didn’t want to watch TV. There is a TV in the lounge room though if one was that desperate. Maybe the only other thing is that the gravel in the driveway can stick to shoes. So we made sure we took our shoes off in the room. If we owned the cottages we would cement or pave the driveway.
Parking is at the side-rear and can easily fit three cars as there are three rooms. Heaps of room.
It was such a lovely stay we really can’t find anything really important to complain about.
We would highly recommend Charlotte's Cottages to any couple wishing to stay at Echuca.
