Nice location, very close to all the Dandenong ranges have to offer. Great hosts, good quality room. Stairs in dovecoat cottage are a little steep and narrow could prove problematic for mobility impaired guests. Beautiful garden environment .

The Stables cottage was beautiful and was the perfect place to get ready for my wedding day. It was a relaxing place and even able to have the gas fire going which added to the ambience. Would highly recommend to family and friends.

We completely relaxed on walking into this cottage - from the comfortable beds and furnishings to the complete silence and breakfast provisions (amazing!). We loved this cottage so much we wanted to stay another night! If you're looking for an elegant place to relax and unwind - look no further.

We spent our 3rd wedding anniversary here at the cottage and it was a lovely retreat place. The in house jacuzzi was a treat and the glass overlooking the dining room is amazing. Would be lovely if the kitchen had a revamp and if there were more attention to details (branding etc). Otherwise, highly recommend to stay and very accommodating...

Thank you for making our stay so welcoming and the surroundings so enjoyable. We were looking for accommodation close to Olinda or Sassafras without breaking the bank. Booking through Booking.com rather than through the local tourist agency also saved us $70:00 per night

Stayed here for 3 nights in the Camellia cottage. Very pretty, well appointed, spacious and private cottage. Breakfast was provided for us to cook ourselves. This was great as we like to sleep in and not have to be up at a specified time. Everything you would want for a hot and cold breakfast plus your own coffee machine. Easy...

My wife and I spent a month travelling throughout Victoria and NSW in December 2016. We stayed at many B & B's and this one was out last before finishing up in Melbourne for 3 days.

From the warm welcome and all the extra thoughtful and unexpected touches it was a delight to stay in this beautiful cottage in what has to be one of the most amazing surroundings, beautiful lush forests with only the sounds of birdsong to break the silence

Cheers Peter. Being off the main road yet still close enough to walk into Sassafras or into Sherbrooke Forest or the Alfred Nicholas gardens is what so many of our guests love. Peace and serenity combined with convenience! So glad you enjoyed it. Thanks, Chris and Gayle

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
CLARENDON COTTAGES - NOT FAR FROM MELBOURNE, VERY CLOSE TO PERFECT! This quiet garden retreat in the Dandenong Ranges is ideal for those who love quality, self contained, B&B accommodation and a beautiful setting. You will enjoy the privacy of your own cottage, the seclusion of our two acre property and the abundance of the local wildlife. If you are looking for a little more action there are wonderful walking trails to explore in Sherbrooke Forest and the Yarra Ranges National Park or perhaps challenge your fitness with a hike up the 1000 Kokoda steps at the foot of the mountain.Our boutique guest accommodation in the heart of the Dandenongs consists of two charming 1 bedroom cottages and a two bedroom cottage in a secluded, peaceful and romantic setting. Gas log fires, spas, fully equipped kitchens and private decks are just some of the many features in our Stables & Camellia Cottages. English country gardens and meadow nestle amongst a huge variety of beautiful century old trees. The cottages are within easy walking distance of Sassafras Village, the home of the famous Miss Marples Tearoom (best scones on the mountain) and Sherbrooke Forest where you can see the Lyrebirds wandering happily.In the Dandenongs there are many things to do in the vicinity of Clarendon. Within minutes you can be wandering around the lively and colourful Villages of Sassafras, Olinda & Mt Dandenong or be visiting six out of the eight Great Gardens of Victoria - National Rhododendron Garden, Alfred Nicholas Garden, George Tindale Garden, William Ricketts Sanctuary or Cloudehill Gardens. Just 10 minutes away there's the legendary 'Puffing Billy' steam train in Belgrave, the Kokoda Trail 1000 steps and the Sky High Observatory at the top of Mt Dandenong. Many antique shops house treasures next to contemporary galleries and studios filled with craft, sculpture and decorator items created by the many artists who have made the Dandenongs their home.The Dandenong Ranges is also home to a great number of restaurants, cafes and tearooms like Wild Oak, Miss Marples, King Henry, The Cuckoo, Ranges and Copperfields suiting a wide range of palates and pockets! Tesselaar's Tulip Farm and u-pick berries and cherries are a short drive and the world renowned Yarra Valley Wineries just a 40 minute drive.For our overseas and interstate guests, the Dandenong Ranges is only a 60 minutes' drive from the Melbourne International Airport and 45 minutes from the Melbourne CBD. We invite you to come and enjoy the unique experience of the Bed & Breakfast culture in the magnificent Dandenong Ranges. ... more   less
