Clonmara cottages are stunning! Beautiful accommodation with a genuinely friendly welcome, a full Scottish breakfast and decaf earl grey tea! There really is nothing more you could want. The cottage is clean and gracefully appointed with a touch of love. We will definitely be back!

The cottage we stayed in was really nice , clean, comfortable, well equipped and spacious. The down side though was lousy wifi- just about able to get one device on line but anything more was impossible and even the one device I had to keep logging in. The other thing to consider is the location. Not really walking distance to...

Dear Phil, Thank you for taking the time to review us. All reviews are meaningful and we learn by looking at the detail contained.

Port Fairy is a lovely small town just west of the Ocean Road start, and we booked at the Clonmarra Cottages for the night before.

Stayed at Clonmara Cottages last night and were very impressed with everything. The owners were very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable about things to do, see, eat and drink locally. The cottages were fabulous and included so many little extras that would not be expected. We would thoroughly recommend this place and only wish we could have stayed a couple of...

We stayed in the Cherry Plum Cottage and it was absolutely beautiful. It was lovely to sit out the front watching the birds fly over and chat to the alpacas who hang out the back. The ladies who run it were very helpful and gave us an overview of the town and what to see. We would definitely stay here...

Driving from Robe down the Great Ocean Road we arrived at Clonmarra Cottages. Our accomodation was a one bedroom cottage. The cottage was spotlessly clean and well equipped.

Thank you for taking the time to review us Unfortunately, we don't have single beds and the Booking.com does not actually offer single beds on our site for that reason.
