We enjoyed our stay here, the cottage we had beds for six, we just used the lower level, it does only have one bathroom though. The facilities were well used but clean and fit for purpose. The outside was very interesting, things are recycled, a toaster as a plant pot hanging in amtree for one. The setting is very rural...

stark, bare, primitive. Comfortable beds. No ice in frig. unfriendly proprietor. Lacking, TV didn't work. Told not to use water or wifi if possible. Bath Soap was like one would get in prison- so small it fell out of soap dish. The sign posted about cleaning says it all.

Very dated, called itself an " eco" lodge but it is nothing eco about it. Tv does not work, bed is so small, our feet were dangling over the bed. Sofa was very saggy and dusty. There was even a "warning notice" that if you leave dirty dishes in the sink, a $50 charge will be imposed. Shall we mop...

A very reasonably priced accommodation close to Port Campbell without being right in town. The rustic nature of the cottage and the environment was quite charming. The booking process was efficient, as was checking in; with a quick briefing regarding how to use the air-conditioner and the availability of DVD's to watch should we be interested. I note that a...

Cheapish price good bed but everything else poorly lacking. Very dated, upstairs Lounge room very saggy and dusty TV does not work. Downstairs tv sooo small! The tv in the bedroom works well but small! The dining bench uncomfortable for prolonged seating. In all if the price was cheaper it is a good pit stop for an overnighter not for...

We stayed for one night in the middle of July. What a great find! We were in cabin no. 3. The rustic cabin is lovely and is perfect for a couple. The cabin is open plan with great heating and electric blankets. The bed was very comfortable. There is a small flat screen tv (a bigger one would be better...

We reached well past dark, found the entrance quite easily and turned into one of the most individualistic places I have seen in Australia! Lovely duplex wooden cottage, well furnished with ample linen. We used the ground floor only, however, the first floor had 3 beds ideal for those traveling with kids, complete with games and puzzles. The cottages are...

We drove from Sydney to the Great Ocean Road, booking three nights here. This was one of our cheapest bookings, and it was the best. The owners are warm and their hounds are everything happy dogs should be. It’s clean, homely and very peaceful. We’d spend the days hunting and foraging cheese factories and wineries, bringing our spoils back to...

Very friendly hosts welcome you to a great individual cottage with interesting timber finishes. A fish shaped plank on the wall and curved benches add to the rammed earth construction. A Beautifully rounded banksia knob leads you up the stairs to a spacious upstairs area with plenty of room for sleeping 3 people and nice chairs to look out the...

Only stayed 1 night but I wished I stayed longer. These cottages are convenient to the best parts of the Great Ocean Road. The cottage we stayed at was clean and very homely. It could easily have accommodated a large family although there were only 2 of us. The owner is very friendly and helpful and I highly recommend this...
