“Quaint cottage with the BEST BREAKFAST”
Reviewed August 11, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

person found this review helpful

My husband and I stayed at Hermitage Cottage over the Anzac Day long weekend. It is a quaint little cottage out in the bush. It is very peaceful out there.

Pros:
- amazing breakfast provisions - juice, milk, fresh eggs, bacon, yogurt, cereal (they even bought me goats milk specially)
- quiet and tranquil location
- air-con and fireplace (have to pay for wood though)
- Well-stocked with utensils, pans, cooking oils, etc
- homely cabin
- well-priced

Cons:
- bathroom not in main house (you have to walk outside to access bathroom)
- bathroom is OK - needs some re-furbishing done to it
- taps in sink in bathroom unusable (small, old-school, very difficult to use)
- minimal phone reception
- no internet - even with a telstra dongle!

Glad you enjoyed your stay.
Yes the cottage is definetly quaint & quirky i.e. bathroom.
Mobiles can usually get one bar with Telstra only,but not Optus or Vodaphone, not a lot we can do about the location of mobile towers.
We do have WIFI available just ask for the password next time.

Liked best: The bed and pillows were like sleeping on a cloud - by far the best we've experienced on any holiday.
Liked least: The stark contrast between the slice of rural heaven and the inner-city shoebox we call home!

“DISAPOINTING - DIRTY - YOU GET ONLY THE MINIMUM- go elsewhere”
Reviewed August 8, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

I did not think there would be a need for a review like this one is going to be, to be brief it was a valentines stay and the location and views looked perfect which they were but unfortunately the kudos here goes to mother nature ONLY
To summarise - the cottage lacks any care or attention to detail we were asked what we wanted for breakfast but our needs were not met, this cottage is not luxury, it is basic it needs a refurb, it is also not clean no where near it and everything is sticky
from a practical point of view the cottage needs a torch and candles just in case , out door furniture at the front which needs repair and paint, more lighting outside in case you need to go to yourcar at night, there was no note to welcome us, the touist info was old, old does not have to be run down and unloved, this cottage has heaps of potential, the sofa covers are gross need to be burnt as does the bedspread
The beds sinks and old carpets,no charm on the inside
you are not told before arrival that the bathroom is only accessed out the front door in a room next to the entrance so you cannot just go in and out without dressing and especially at night this is uncomfortable
bathroom dirty no effort made here, old shower curtain the bath needs painting ,sink impractical very hard to shave, the whole place needs a rethink , old lino really shappy and disapointing beyond belief
the kitchen not properly cleaned from previous guests, greasy and smells, half used items in the fridge unhygenic its a fire hazard
this must be a great money spinner but no money appears to have gone into the cottage
all the drawers and cupboards are filled with dirt and mcuk so they are not there for use
old furniture not even nice clean coffee mugs

seriously no wonder its self rated
