“Five night stay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2013

We checked in via phone located next to our accommodation, easy to do. We had originally gone through a Travel Auctions to book the suite and upgraded to a king suite. Nicely decorated, clean and everything needed is there. Adequate size kitchenette, lounge/dining with a gas log fire, very cosy.
Not much space in bedroom with the king size bed but OK. Matress very firm also pillows.
Nice bathroom but definitely not suitable for aged folk as there is a considerable step up into the spa bath/shower, OH&S would probably suggest some sort of 'grab handle' to assist entry and exit spa bath.

We stayed in there 54 on bank property in a king suite.
We stayed feom friday to monday an had a great time.
Fully equipped kitchen, lounge area seperate bedroom with a very comfy king bed.
It had lovely bathroom with a large spa bath fit for the two of us.
There was a phone on the side of the building that you picked up to check in.
Some people may find this an issue but we didnt as they were very prompt in coming down and letting us in.
Very close to shops and restaurants.
Overall an amazing weekend away and would go again in a heartbeat.

You need a bed for the night on your G.O.R. Trip and that is what you get here. Not a lot of service but you don't really need it. Rooms are ok but nothing to get too excited about and the windows needed a clean and there was a spiders web hanging from the light fitting to the skylight. (In a land where spiders can be a touch unfriendly). Good for one night would not have wanted to stay longer. Best thing about this stop was Ramellas just down the road see our review.

Stayed on first floor at this property for a night whilst driving from Adelaide to Melbourne, arrived out of hours and spoke to Russell on the phone close by, he told to look to my left and that the entrance to the place was next door down the street. Our apartment was up a flight of stairs, after carrying two 30kg suitcases up them we found the room was warm and cosy, we were in the roof space, put the air conditioning on and went out for a meal. Everything in the room was of good quality, had a good room guide to facilities within the town, but was on the small side...fine for a night.

Room Tip: Ask for a ground floor room

As a group of 7 traveling together it can be tricky to find good boutique accommodation, but this place was unique. The service was prompt, but to contact reception you pick up a phone on the outside of the building. One of the rooms was extremely small, like a kid's "cubby hole". This would have been fine if we were traveling with children, but for an adult it was not really appropriate. The layout also required occupants to traverse a flight of stairs to use the toilet, or enter through the master bedroom. The buildings are lovely historic stone, and it is close to what Port Fairy has to offer, but I wouldn't recommend for a group larger than a single couple.

We arrived at Hearns Cottages soon after the reception had closed and used the phone and within minutes the manager arrived and told us there was a problem with our accommodation (Premier King Cottage) and asked us to follow him in his car. we were taken a short distance to a bungalow in a very nice area. The bungalow was spotless with a full kitchen but totally lacking in amenities. The manager then disappeared as fast as he had arrived and we discover that there was not even a tablet of soap in the place so, our first trip was to the supermarket for soap. The accommodation was fine but the property had the feel of holiday let much in need of some TLC. We still await an explanation. Our overall rating of average is based on the bungalow and not the Premier King Cottage as per our reservation.

We arrived at Hearns Cottages early afternoon. Nobody about but after a while noticed a sign saying to use the phone on the side of the building to announce our arrival. We were told our room number and how to get there and that the key was in the lock. The room was pleasant, spacious and had all we needed. The guide in the room was excellent and pointed us to all the facilities in the town and included a number of menu's for eating out or eating in. The stay was pleasant but we left the next morning without ever seeing anyone and felt somewhat ill at ease because of it.
