After a busy day on the road for work, it was refreshing to stay at the cottages. Beautiful scenery, quiet and private. The manager was so welcoming and friendly. The music was playing softly as we opened the door and a decanter of muscat along with some chocolate were waiting to relax us after the day's work. The Lyrebird also...

You won't be disappointed with the watergarden room. It's quite gorgeous buried amongst the lush ferns & trees. Wonderful bed. Mid February but winter weather - the rain on the roof sounded wonderful. Pot belly fire, lovely ambience, spa bath etc. breakfast provisions provided. not sure what this would be like in winter as even with heating the room was...

We stayed here for an anniversary and had a wonderful time. The people that run the place are helpful and friendly and put together some wonderful food for us. the cabin was large and clean and had everything we needed. the only downside was the proximity to walkways and other cabins on the grounds, but by no means a deal...

We stayed in the Watergarden room, which was very outdated (and not in a "country living" style way). Mismatched interior and the spa bath (which was a big incentive for us to book this place) was dirty and full of some sort of ash. When we arrived, we were simply told by the man at reception that "the keys were...

This email was forwarded to the couple the day they departed: Good Afternoon........................... I have just read your guest survey and thought I would respond immediately as there appears to be some dissatisfaction in your note. It is quite unusual to receive such negative comments as Watergarden Cottage generally entertains very happy guests. Our accommodation is not modern, it is...

We bought a two night stay on a package for my son and his partner and on a separate two night package for my husband, son, partner and myself...in both cases we could not get the two nights booked together. We ended up staying for one night only as that was all that would work... We had the cottage with...

Booked a 2 night getaway that included champagne and Lindt chocolates upon arrival. The champagne was $6.00 from Aldi and the chocolate was tasteless Aldi Chocolate, not Lindt as promised. Totally false advertising. There was zero phone and wifi connection, and no telephone in the room, so I was unable to contact anyone.Should not market themselves as luxury accommodation.

Stayed on Friday night 26thFeb for a special birthday night. Septic smell was through our room. Couldn't have a spa water was dark brown Heard the TV from upstairs all the time we were awake. In the morning showers went cold all very disappointing. Would not recommend lyrebird cottage.

How lovely! The rain on the tin roof and different birds chirping. We felt like we were in a tree house looking out the windows at the beautiful trees and ferns. Listening to the water trickle along the little brook. All the little elegant touches and yummy breakfast made our stay relaxing and refreshing.
