Great house, wonderful hosts!!!

  • 5 of 5

My father and I stayed at Primrose house for a wedding this weekend. What can I say, Shirley & Bob are very lovely hosts and went above and beyond to look after us. Very good price & close to the Coronation Hall if you come for a wedding. House was very well looked after and clean and comfortable. Thank you again Shirley and Bob.

Holiday Cottage

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Primrose Cottage. Our 3 night stay was for a wedding.

No bells and whistles at this property, but basic and comfortable. Conveniently located in Somerset Village, it is a short walk to the Dam Shed for fuel and supplies and 1.8km from The Spit.

Shirley our host, was efficient and approachable.

Excellent house !!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and son stayed at "Primrose" for the weekend along with a powerboat racing team who were attending a meet in Somerset Dam. They were impressed with the location and the facilities that it had to offer. We will be back for sure. The owners are lovely and very easy to deal with. Thanks again Shirley !
