Exceeded our expectations!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Briserenia Cottages, Philip and his wife went above and beyond to make sure that we would enjoy our stay, could not have asked for more. We would definitely recommend to anyone planning a holiday to the Dandenong ranges. The cottages were clean, had games, were beautifully furnished and had a delicious tray of treats on our arrival. Philip was a fantastic source of information, not only about the property, but the area as well, if we stay in the area again, this will be where we stay
