Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Clean, quiet, nice amenities and no hassles. Why stay in a hotel when you can stay at Nicole's cottage. Would definately stay here again.Walking distance to the Prime ministers lodge and more importantly Double shot cafe.

Nice, but needs more personal care from host

  • 3 of 5

The location can't be beat. The cottage looks lovely and is well layed out for the small space; I would prefer for the toilet and shower to have a door though. I enjoyed my stay and would stay again if the host corrects a few issues. I was not checked in on by the host at all during or after my stay so was not given an opportunity to discuss any problems as it does not seem like they care to know. Upon arrival there were chocolates and almonds, 2 bath towels, a hand towel, and 2 face washers (of which one was dirty and on the floor) though there were 3 guests. The pantry was sparse and a lot of the items were running very low. In the refrigerator was a jar of spoiled milk and a container of expired Parmesan cheese that was growing fuzzy mould. The electric fry pan was dirty still containing oil and food crumbs from its last use. And I was quite disappointed to find that the advertised coffee machine was no longer there though the manual still remained. The air con was great as it was very hot out. The decor was nice and I enjoyed the vases of flowers.

Compact but comfortable

We enjoyed our stay. Slight problem with TV: initially hard to operate; when working couldn't get Channel 7.

Cute and cosy

  • 5 of 5

This cottage has it all. It has a beautiful atmosphere and the fit out is terrific. Great location and a short walk to the shops and to Parliament house. This certainly beats staying in a motel. I would thoroughly recommend this place
