“Perfect for a weekend away without kids!”
Reviewed 22 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

A lovely spot for a short break, with all the facilities you need for an extended stay. Di and Duncan clearly put a lot of effort in to making sure guests receive the perfect welcome; music, heating, lighting on, bottle of wine chilled...your holiday starts the minute you open the door. And the spa bath on the deck is just lovely - looking out in to the treetops, we watched the birds and kangaroos at sunset. We tried the Red Star cafe for breakfast as recommended - get's the thumbs up from us too! As does Kazukis for dinner (degustation menu fantastic), and Sault for lunch. We'll be back for sure, and may even bring the kids this time - they'd love the outdoor bath too!

“Well presented and comfortable”
Reviewed 3 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Were in need of a family weekend not too far at short notice, so found this cottage in spa country.

Surrounded by other cottages on three sides not ideal, however frontage to Doctor's Gully makes up for the lack of space. Very peaceful outlook.

Tastefully decorated throughout with quality fixtures and fittings. Bed a bit soft for our liking, however gorgeous doona and pillows. The spa area outside is a bit cluttered and unnecessarily enclosed, needs a re-think.

Everything else is top notch, including service from the owners. Highly recommended!
