False advertising from Ad
Firstly not impressed that you are doing renovations on the house outside and cannot access the carport to park the car/cars. We are three older couples and accessing outside with parking on road and walking thru red sand and then down step stairs to get in is a bit dangerous with wet weather also.
The house does not look like your photos in the ad. The whole house just needs a very good clean and update. The cushions on couches were all stained and filthy. The kettle was BLACK inside i have never seen anything like it. ( I do have photos ) we boiled water on the stove it was that bad. The cleaner is not giving that house a good clean. Food under couches and hand prints all over the doors looking out.
In your photos the gardens looked amazing and looked like would be very relaxing to sit and admire and also there was mention of lake views. You looked out the window to garden beds with dead plants or dirt.. Nothing else and there is no Lake views just trees in the way. So that was disappointing also.
Some positive feedback if you would like , would be to just give it a good FRESH up and keep up the up keep and de clutter like it obviously once use to look like in your photos, cause they did look amazing. Hence why we booked to start with.
We appreciate comments from our guests. We are undertaking to update Geranium Cottage's parking area which will give easier access to our guests - building a new carport, erecting new garden areas and providing a new outdoor area - all of which will be completed soon. While the works are in progress, guests cannot access the property via a driveway, but can drive right up to the side gate on the nature strip, park in the side street or access the cottage from the front road - which we advise our guests. We also advise guests there are steps to the back door. We have previously had excellent reviews on the cleanliness of the cottage; however we have addressed your comments, and I have let the cleaners know of your concerns and these will be remedied.
Our description of the property, does indicate that you can see the lake from the sunroom; but you cannot see the whole lake area. The sunroom is still a lovely, relaxing area to enjoy the spectacular views of Daylesford. The plants in the front "planter boxes" have not done well in the hot summer months, but will pop up again in the spring. The lawn is still green, the hedge is thriving and the garden beds are still full of plants.
Thank you for your feedback, we appreciate the time you took to inform us of your concerns.
We had a great stay at Geranium cottage. Shops and restaurants are all within easy walking distance. The house was well equipped with everything to make your stay comfortable.
Geranium Cottage on a Thursday night was expensive for $170.
The property had a 2 person spa but the water water system could only service to half fill it?
The main bedroom pillows were very uncomfortable and seemed to have very limited support and as a result I had a very sore neck in the morning.
Average property for the price.
Our cottage accommodates up to 8 people - therefore when you book for a larger group, the cost is much more affordable. We have never had any guests comment on the lack of hot water or uncomfortable pillows, so I'm sorry if this was an inconvenience for you. Thank you for your comments, which we do appreciate.
Great budget house , lovely outlook and walking distance to all Daylesford has to offer
We enjoyed our stay at Geranium Cottage. The location is great - just a short walk into town. It was a small shame the open fireplaces weren't operational as it would have increased the level of cosiness in the cottage. Unfortunately the second heater in the sun room didn't stay on but the lounge heater kept the house warm. Otherwise it was clean and comfortable.
Thanks for your comments Tania. We have had the second heater fixed, so the sunroom should be nice and warm now. Yes, it is a shame the open fireplaces can't be used - but unfortunately before we owned the property, the previous owners made renovations to the roof - and they dismantled the chimneys!!
Really enjoyed our stay at Geranium Cottage. 3 bedrooms to sleep 6 of us was perfect. Clean & well presented. Location was ideal for a quick stroll up to the Main Street. Only issue was 1 heater kept switching itself off, but the main heater was good enough anyway. Would definitely be happy to return.
Thanks Ian. We appreciate you letting us know about the heater. We will get it fixed this week. It's helpful to get feedback, as we can rectify any concerns. We're glad you enjoyed your time in Daylesford.
