Pleasant house, lovely view

  • 3 of 5

Comfy little cottage, though very hard to find if arriving after dark: no clear house number and no streetlights (no security light on the porch either, we had to use our phones to find the key safe!) The house was really cold when we arrived but the gas fire was lovely once it got going. Thanks for the fairy lights and champagne, but we also would have loved some coffee (desperately!) and some dishwasher tablets. Great view and the snowdrops and daffodils in the charming garden were really cheering.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. We will take your suggestions on board and we appreciate your comments. We always have coffee for our guests so I am sorry that there was not any available for you. The dishwasher tables are usually in a container under the sink. Yes it gets really cold up in the mountains and the gas heater certainly gets the house warm in a jiffy. We are glad you enjoyed the winter garden.

Our stay was very relaxing. The cottage had everything we needed and being away from the hussel and bussel made it quiet and peaceful.

We stayed at this property in August. This was our first time booking accommodation thru Stayz and we were not disappointed . The place was like in photos,very clean and comfortable . We loved the window wall overlooking mountains. It was very quiet and pretty even though it was on outskirts of Katoomba. We felt like we were out there in the centre of mountains. Gardens are pretty and well maintained. The owners were very good and accommodating. Answered all our emails promptly. Would stay here again and would recommend it to our friends.

Perfect place to stay in The Blue Mountains, NSW

  • 5 of 5

Aurora Cottage was ideally suited for our first visit to The Blue Mountains. I looked at many cottages before choosing Aurora and was not disappointed. The facilities, the views, the location, couldn't have been better. The owners were very easy to communicate with and were very helpful with their advice on the area. The welcome bottle of wine in the fridge was a lovely touch and made us feel very welcome.

The cottage is full of character and very well equipped with everything you need.

We loved watching the stunning sunset and the friendly cockatoos and blue parrots in the garden. Katoomba is very close for shopping and eating out and Scenic World is just a few minutes drive away.

All in all a fantastic stay and we would not hesitate to recommend Aurora Cottage, just wish we had planned to stay longer.
