My husband and I stayed at Lochiel for a couple of nights in a tri level cottage. What stood out immediately were the superb views from the cottage. All the cottages are surrounded by the magnificent forest. What is also good is the convenient location. The cottages are located within walking distance to the Olinda shops. Our cottage was fully self contained, had a large bathroom with a spa, and also had central heating and a canara which were both convenient for this time of year.
Also left for us were discount meal vouchers for the Ranges restaurant down the road ($30 off breakfast and 20% off dinner) which was a nice addition to our stay. The only let down I would say is that there was very little information provided on things to do in the area. There was a booklet for us to read in the cottage however it was not very detailed. We then asked a local where the nearest information centre was and was told there wasn’t one in the area. We ended up driving to the Healesville as we recalled one there however they could not help as they catered to the Yarra Valley region only. They did tell us however that there was one in Belgrave in which is the one that we should have gone to… lesson now learned. Our recommendation would be to plan your visit before arrival.
Overall it was a lovely stay and very relaxing.
