Fantastic place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the cottage for 10 days and it was terrific. The place is very clean, has two very spacious bedrooms, a dining room, great living room and kitchen - although we mainly used the new BBQ out the back. Close to all restaurants, the Workers Club and the RSL. Neil was very helpful throughout our stay and thoroughly enjoyed our time at the cottage. Cheers, Paul

Overpriced for what you get.

  • 2 of 5

House and yard did not present well at all. The interior had a musky smell and needed a prolonged airing. BBQ was in a disgraceful condition, yard looked unkempt, the bedroom wardrobes were full of someone's clothes negating any use. The laundry and various other rooms had someone's possessions stored in available nooks and crannies. To finish on a positive - we only stayed one night!

Owner's Response: Barry thanks for taking the time to send a review. We are sorry that your stay was not as you expected. The house is our holiday home, and hence it is not used regularly in winter. So I guess it may have been a little stuffy. We will make sure it is aired in the future before guests arrive during the winter months. We regularly have the yard maintained, but again in winter it does get a little less attention. We will investigate the BBQ and look to refurbish it or get a new one asap. As it is our holiday home, we keep additional linen for extra guests in the wardrobes. We will look to get a separate linen press, as we agree that using the wardrobes for linen may be restrictive for guests. We also have a lot of things in the house for our guests to use - these include prams and baby equipment. All the items in the house are for guest use, including games, toys, books, videos, DVDs and music. We will look to store some of these in a more out of the way places. Our other guests over many years have indicated they appreciated the homely feel, but that comes down to personal preference. Once again, thanks for taking the time to offer your feedback, it is appreciated. Regards, Neil.

Quite roomy & comfortable

  • 4 of 5

Every room was well appointed and clean but there was evidence of cockroach infestation which is understanderble given the age and location of the premises.
