Stayed at Credo cottage 3 (I believe, the 2 storey cottage) & are overall quite disappointed in the quality. As soon as you open the door there is a terrible smell that thankfully fades as you go up the stairs, whilst I understand & appreciate that most people staying in the area may go out to local eateries for dinner,...

We recently stayed here to attend a local wedding. The accommodation is adequate and net or needs. I agree with some other reviewers that it took us a while to find it as there is no numbering (also difficult for taxis to find you!). Also the dining table is tiny and the kitchen equipment minimal.

There was no signage or numbering spent 10 minutes trying to work out which cabin it was. While it was roomy, the cottage was straight off the main road, lots of traffic noise. Views were not great its next to a carpark. The decor was dated certainly looks better in the photos. We filled the spa, then when we turned... More

Booked on The Internet and enjoyed the location and feel of the cottage and it was clean and modern, it had all the features you need, ample towels and great toiletries. We enjoyed relaxing on the balcony and the back window looked out to the forest where we saw loads of birds of all colours. Olinda is such a great... More

The guest was advised that our alternative accommodation was fully booked. A full description of the Credo 3 Cottage was given and the guests were happy to take up the accommodation especially as the cottage had an outdoor hot tub and is one of the few cottages that have outdoor spa's in the Dandenong Ranges. The deck is a private.... More

We had a quaint little cottage with a lovely hot out door spa. Jonathon (the manager ) could not do enough for us to ensure we really enjoyed our stay. I would recommend Credo cottages for anyone wanting a winter get away or a summer relax

We had a lovely stay with our four legged child in preparation for our wedding. It meant so much to us to be able to have the pooch close during the wedding weekend. The place is neat and nice. Will definitely return.

We stayed in Credo 2 for one night over the weekend. We payed $600 for one night in a 2 bedroom cottage. You would think for this type of money you would get all the luxuries, but you don't even get an air conditioner! The floorboards throughout the whole cottage creak like you wouldn't believe. The lawns around the property... More
