“Authentic Settlers Cottages”
Reviewed 7 January 2018 for a stay in January 2018

Nice central location, stayed in Room 4, Capt. Nicolas Baudin, great authentic cottage with information provided in the room detailing the life of the building which was great to read. Nice outdoor bbq area which you can use. Close to other towns if you run short of supplies, but best to bring with you what you need, fridge and basic kitchen facilities provided in room 4. Second Valley Beach and caravan kiosk about 1.5kms away. Overall good value, reasonable quiet for being right next to the main road, but could go for some darker curtains as very bright in the morning. I would recommend and return again to these cottages.

“cute buildings, basic accommodation”
Reviewed 26 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

The cottages are from the mid 1800's and were restored in the '80's. They have charm and character.
Unfortunately they are due for another re-furb if they are going to serve as quality accommodation into the future. Our unit did not have hot water to the sink, a light cover missing, blown light bulb etc which would be annoying to some visitors. The cottage was clean and tidy bet we felt the need to wash all crockery etc before using it. The property needed some daily maintenance with leaves blown up to the doors etc as well as some longer term care. The barbeque area is nice but has bedrooms of 3 units opening onto it as well as the imposing accommodation units on the adjoining site.
We had all the cottages to ourselves and there were only a few people in the adjoining units which made our stay quiet and enjoyable. It would be different if the other cottages and adjoining units were occupied.
Second valley is a lovely place and the cottages are well located, however it would be difficult to recommend them due to the expectations of visitors and the impact of other occupants.

Would you recommend this hotel to a friend?   No.

Management Response

Thank you for your response.
Yes, the broken light and globe issue had occorred immediately before your visit and the tradesman obtained the replacement to fix immediately after. The sink is plumbed with cold water only [170 y.o. building] and we clearly indicate hot water is via the kettle, or it is there just outside at the gazebo.
Regarding refurbishment, we are continually upgrading to a standard appropriate for the Cottages and the moderate price-range applied for them.
Our busy booking calendar is mainly for short term stays and for clients who enjoy Leonards Mill and the beautiful area. We are obviously not set up as a completely detached cottage facility.
