“Great value,neat and tidy”
Reviewed October 5, 2009

We stayed here for 3 nights. This cottage is in a quiet end of town, but you can walk to the shops in 5 minutes. It is around the corner from a great little cafe where the coffee was good and cakes lovely.
The Harlequin cottage slept 6, but we only had 4. There are two small and simple bedrooms with beautiful fresh white linen. Lots of towels were provided as well with some little handmade soaps.
The kitchen was well stocked with bits to cook with- maybe could have done with a bigger fry pan. The appliances were all spotless and good.

There was a tv, cd player and dvd .There were some board games provided and lots of room for the kids to run around in the front yard.
There was a washing machine, line and pegs-no dryer but not an issue as weather was warm. We also had to bring our own washing powder though.
Definately would recommend this for a couple or family.

What a find after such a long drive! With 2 small children it was such a delight to arrive at the Harlequin Cottage. We put the kettle on and had a cuppa as we watched the kids stretch their legs on the grass in the big front yard. The beds were so comfortable (with beautiful sheets), the kitchen was great and the washing machine a relief. The cottage was so clean and it contained everything we needed for a very comfortable and relaxing stay.

After a week on the road the Harlequin cottage had without a doubt the most comfortable beds of the entire trip. It was right in the centre of town with 2 bedrooms and a laundry. The interior was modern and extremely clean with everything you could think of provided. The rates were comparable with the local motels but this was so much nicer. In the barren rest dust of Lightning Ridge, it even had a grassy front yard for the kids!! Would recommend to anyone.
