3/5 Okay

Simple but good space for family hols
A nice enough spot, but lacking a few finer details that you expect of a 'lodge type stay' eg: 4pm check in was required (a chilly 3 deg out) No heating on and the fire took a while to crank up, getting mega hot upstairs yet still cold down with timber floors... (no kindling, firelighters, paper, even coffee on arrival), only one side of elec blanket one bed, none on single beds. Loud noises from attached unit (thin walls) kids running up and down wooden stairs and their gas califont clicking and cluncking right outside the downstairs main bedroom much of the night and early morning was a bit annoying! Im sure the owners mean well but seem busy/preoccupied with so many rooms to manage

Fantastic location, beautiful spot.
It was a busy weekend riding bikes at Mt Hutt. The cottage was perfectly located, beautiful spot, lovely to come home to. Would have been nice to have had a bit more time to enjoy it. Even so we had a fantastic weekend. Thank you so much.
