We stayed 2 nights in Aurora cottage while attending the Longest Lunch in the Hepburn Springs Reserve. For our needs it was close to ideal, inexpensive, quiet and secluded. Aurora is the smallest (and cheapest) of the 3 cottages on the block. They are located quite close together and while we were not disturbed on our visit, if you were unfortunate enough to encounter a raucous couple in one of the other cottages it could be an issue. There is a carport at the end of a reasonably narrow driveway so you need to take care reversing as there is a brick wall on one side.
I would describe Aurora as comfortable rather than luxurious, small kitchen with microwave, fridge, small table with 2 chairs sofa and tv. Bathroom and shower were adequate but could probably do with an update. We found the bed a bit on the hard side but we normally sleep on a water bed so rarely find holiday accommodation beds to our liking. There is a small outside deck with a table and 2 chairs which overlooks the bush and it is very pleasant to sit there in the sun and relax to the sounds of parrots squawking.
We booked Aurora as it is only 10 mins walk down to the Hepburn Springs Bathhouse and Hepburn Springs Reserve as we didn't want to be anywhere near a car after all the wine flowing at the lunch. No not luxury accommodation but considering the inexpensive costs we thought very good value. Will certainly stay again ...
