The 3 remote controls .
Great place to stay. Very roomy ,neat and clean. Good food and coffee at the bakery.
Car parking a little tight but nogreat problem .
Beautifully presented and comfortable, citrus tarts in fridge were a delightful surprise
the generosity of welcome, free cakes and coffee
we brought four friends back to experience the old world hospitality at the bakery on Tuesday lunchtime, but it was closed
Very spacious and clean. Nice big bath ideal for relaxing. Close proximity to shops, restaurants and supermarkets. Annie's bakery has delicious pastries.
Everything and it was lovely to sit out on the front patio and have a meal in the evening. ps: I have already sent you a rating etc.
(apart from the above comment.)
Excellent location. A 'quirky' apartment which has the potential to be excellent, but attention to detail needed.
Arrived mid-afternoon in Castelmaine after a 24 hour flight from the UK to Melbourne only to find the bakery cafe closed and nobody around. How were we to get into the apartment? Staff in the next door shop were very helpful in trying to track down Annie - it then transpired that she sent an email with entry instructions - but not much help if you haven't accessed you emails. Two light bulbs blown, another hanging down from the ceiling. Dripping bath tap. Thorough cleaning needed throughout, especially behind the bed!
The cottage was very comfortable and had everything that we required although breakfast on 2nd morning was not provided and we had to ask which was not easy due to location of No 2 being right on outside courtyard of café and clients already eating.
Location of No 2 as the access is located in the courtyard of the café and was busy from 8am in the morning until around 3pm daily, no chance of a sleep in as we had arrived back around midnight from a wedding. No 1 cottage is in a better position.
Gorgeous roses in the garden and very comfortable fit out and bed. Ambient, quiet and cosy.
Wifi code did not work. Breakfast was not as it appeared in the advertising which implied it would be served in the cafe adjacent to the accommodation. The cafe was actually closed. This was one of the key reasons we chose this accommodation over others so it was disappointing that it did not come to pass. We felt somewhat misled.
We enjoyed our stay in the front apartment. The room was very spacious with a lovely sitting area and a huge bathroom with beautiful roll top bath. Breakfast was continental with supplies left in the fridge. The orange juice was great but even better were the fresh almond croissants from the bakery!
Overall it was excellent only a few minor points were needed. The staff were really terrific and the free cups of coffee or tea was great and the the pastry choice each day was the best. The Bed was extremely comfortable. The living quarters were comfortable. It was very good as it was our first B & B. Our breakfasts were good and ample. Cost was very reasonable. We usually stay in 3 to 4 star motels around the world but would have no hesitation in going back again.
No direct light over the cooking area which is needed. The room required a little more light in the room at night, or if the room was repainted in a white tinted with cream instead of green, the reflected light would eliminate much change in the lighting. Hope you don't get offended at my suggestion as I aim to help you if I can. We weren't sure about whether the breakfast supply to our unit was supposed to be topped up each day, as this didn't happen. There was no fuss when we asked for more cereal, they were very pleasant & accommodating. Just not sure what was normally done, that's all.
It was quiet and comfortable
Too close to the café. My room looked into the take away section of the café, I could hear every thing that was said. The bathroom backed onto where the dishwasher was, so you can imagine the noise. From 9 pm until 7.30 am, the accommodation was good, although the restaurant opposite had a 40th birthday party on the outside balcony on Saturday night.
Quality of the breakfast that was left for us was very good.nice and quiet and comfortable bed.some nice touches.
There were no instructions given about getting the key. Luckily the guest in the other unit called the owner and we were able to get in. We booked based on the glowing reviews of the bakery but it is closed Monday to Wednesday.just as well we were leaving early as someone came with a machine and started digging up back courtyard at 8.30 am. A little disappointed
Plenty of room with bedroom and lounge room plus bathroom Delightful people and generous with coffee/patisserie
narrow driveway to park at back of shop.
Cosey atmosphere - home away from home
May be cold in bathroom in winter
Very friendly welcome. Room and bathroom were preheated which we as an elderly couple really appreciated. Bathroom and tea making facilities a delight. Lots of Friendly greeting on arrival. Lovely snacks provided and complimentary fresh danish pastry and brewed coffee in adjoining cafe was most enjoyable. 250 metres from train in quiet street and about the same distance from the city itself. Lovely old courtyard with street front takes one back 80 years.
Bedding excellent but mattress somewhat on the firm side..
Great staff, comfortable room, excellent location.
The plumbing was the same as the bakery's so each time they used the water it would affect the shower.
Well thought out, well presented by pleasant professional staff. The hand made almond croissant along with a coffee in the morning made a return trip highly desirable!
For a few seconds the shower ran cold then hot again. Not really a problem as the shower was large enough to step out of the water stream. It did wake me up!
Good location for the goldfields, bathroom good, free coffee service appreciated, and loved the courtyard
Kitchenette facilities poor as there was no provision for washing dishes, TV antiquated, advised that afternoon tea was provided every day but cafe closed for 2 days of our visit
The location, the friendly staff even though busy were able to help us out. The complemtary pasteries delicious and a discount to boot on bought sweets. Quiet at night and warm.
The pillows were abit high for us...other than that nothing
Old fashioned character combined with modern comfort.
Kitchenette needs more room. Microwave, sink, fridge together. More bench space. pots for cooking.
