“Colonial Cottages”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2014

We stayed at the Colonial Cottages for 3 nights. The cottages are quaint and relatively spacious but the interior is in need of updating. The owner was very friendly and helpful. Location was a little too far out of town, approximately 25 minute walk, and after visiting any of the excellent eateries in the town that was slightly too far, but that is the only criticism.

Room Tip: Make sure that you don't mind a good walk into town.

We stayed here for one night in the 2 bedroomed cottage. The cottages are so lovely, very clean and more than spacious for our needs. In need of a little updating inside and perhaps a more "cottagey" theme would be nice. The pool area was adequate but more sunbeds are needed. Owner, Jan, very friendly and helpful in suggesting places to visit. Would definitely return and recommend.

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2014

We paid $170.00 per night for a two bedroom cottage. And given the photos on the internet, I was expecting a quaint but smart unit. After we had checked in, I realised why most of the photos are external. While the unit was roomy, the decor was dated and shabby. The beds in the second bedroom were suited only for children and the shower was for midgets. Every time I turned, I seemed to knock the rose with my elbow and the water temperature then suddenly increased or decreased, which was at best annoying, and worst dangerous.

If the tariff was $120 per night I would recommend it. At the current rate, I suggest you shop around.

We stayed here two nights. The cottages are very quaint on the outside but not on the inside. For the rate paid I would have expected contemporary or cottage themed decor but it was just a tired motel in the end. Disappointing as the room rate was more like that of a 5-star city hotel but this was more 3-star. The exterior promised much but the interior let it down.

Room Tip: Shop around for value.

We stayed six nights at this motel and it was fabulous, a great decision. We loved absolutely everything about it, the service, the cleanliness, the facilities (including the checked tablecloth for the outside table to eat the fish we had filleted on their fish filleting table). Talk about 'service with a smile'. We will recommend this to all our friends.

Stayed here for a night ,we pitched up one afternoon with out booking and there was a 2 bedroom unit available ,which was very spacious,decor a bit out-dated .Unfortunately that evening and also the next morning there was no hot-water,which was dissapointing as we had been in the sea and were still very salty.Their solar heated pool was coolish too as there had been no sun .No worries ,we were happy with the room for a short stay,and the hosts were very friendly.

The cottage was perfect for the two of us. Large clean rooms, well laid out and good clean BBQ. Only downside was weather - rain! But even then the lady owner was very helpful with her local knowledge and turned dim days into a highlight of our holiday. Cottages are about a mile from town centre, a nice walk after a meal & drink or two, you can kid yourself you have walked all those calories off.
