Loved our stay here and had a giggle at the cat using our car to warm up. Nothing was a problem here, clean, beautiful themed accommodation and most of all warm and inviting. This place can not be faulted. Highly recommended.

A truly romantic hideaway. Having previously stayed in The Boudoir, Camelot and The English cottage, my husband booked The Irish cottage as a surprise to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Lovely personal touches, comfy four tester bed, roomy spa and tranquil setting made for a wonderful night.

We booked Bonnie Doon cottage for a week. Excellent amenities, comfortable and spacious. Breakfast items were provided in the cottage, cereal, fruit, yoghurt, bread etc. When booking I let them know we had a food allergy and they were more than happy to cater for us. There was washing powder provided for $2, again perfect we didn't need to purchase...

We arrived on the morning ferry and so were in Launceston just after 10am, but when I rang they said to come straight around. We had a basket of croissants, bread, cheese and jams waiting, The bed...

Didn't like the room when we first entered into the room. The room was squeezy and cramped, way smaller than how the photos presented. They also put too much stuff in the room and tried to make the room in French style but the furnitures look old. All cups have tea stain and you would not want to use any...

I have stayed here a number of times and I am never disappointed. It is great in winter as the fireplaces and all the little touches make you feel cosy and warm. There are only two rooms I have not tried yet but they are all different and unique. Love the pussy cats also!!

We stayed in the scottish styled cottage. It was very comfortable and the owners were very nice. Conviently located with just a 15 minutes walking distance from the centre of the town. A pleasant stay, thank you!

Welcomed to the Scottish Cottage. Ample continental breakfast. A beautiful 4 room cottage with easy walking distance of CBD. Comfy bed, claw footed bath, sitting room and kitchen with Scottish memorabilia in furnishings. Would love to stay again.
