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.

Owner's Response: 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 location

  • 4 of 5

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 Kaye

Owner's Response: 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!!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Hi Pauline, Thanks for letting us know about the plug. We had just recently purchased a new one, but obviously it wasn't a perfect fit!! We will organise a new plug asap. Regards, Kaye.
