Featuring a fireplace and a fully equipped kitchen, Leach’s Cottage is located in the historic gold-mining town of Maldon. This country-style cottage is just a 10-minute walk from Maldon town centre.
Score from 14 reviews Wonderful
Provisions; great bed. Bakery items delicious.
Little natural light, and inadequate artificial lighting - not enough to allow reading.
The owner even sent us on our way with coffee and croisants
The coffee and cake for afternoon tea and wonderful pastries for breakfast were a bonus! Will stay again.
Location is good .. Accommodation is comfortable but not worth the price that is being charged.
The accommodation is not a apartment if anything it is a small studio accommodation.. there was no air conditioning and the "included" breakfast was small cereal packets and some cheap bread.
A good central location. The bed was comfortable and free wifi worked well. Bathroom clean and large. It would get great when the bakery is open.
We were not met when we arrived and had to phone to get the key number. We were not informed that the bakery was closed for holidays and consequently did not get the promised fresh pastries for breakfast .
Convenient position Spacious accommodation Reliable and fast WiFi Free coffee and cake/pastry during day
No table in room but folding one on front patio could easily be moved
Charming cottage type B&B. Very comfortable with extra added little touches I.e. Brownie for a/noon tea, plate of apples, homemade jam and delicious yoghurt and raspberries etc. very centrally located to Railway Station and Main Street.
Unfortunately weather was unusually humid and cooling by fan only.
Hidden gem - quiet, yet so close to all facilities. Pleasant, relaxing courtyard. Scrumptious cake from the bakery, very obliging host.
Just sorry that bakery was closed during our visit, although this meant we had the courtyard to ourselves.
LOVED the breakfast and the magnificent croissants and bottomless tea and coffee provided by the café. Got a very pleasant surprise when on arrival our coffee and cake in the café was also complimentary. Fantastic hospitality. We didn't mind the café courtyard right outside our door but because of this, needed to keep the venetian blinds closed which made the room very dark in daylight as well.
Impossible to read at night. Very dim lighting at night. Only small, low table lamp in lounge area and only one bedside lamp which wasn't on my side of the bed. Lacking in bench space in kitchen area and in bathroom. Needs a downlight over the kitchen area for lighting.
We liked the location and the peace and quiet
I didn't like the fact that the review said that there was a garden view and there wasn't much of that.
Clean, spacious rooms with excellent breakfast provided and many special touches ie pastries, plunger coffee, apples
No air con, no flyscreens on windows or door (mosquito bite allergy). I believe would be unbearably hot, glad it was only 23 deg during our stay
Complimentary afternoon tea, breakfast and morning tea.
No normal coffee in room.
Very comfortable, great location and value for money. Lots of nice treats from the bakery and staff helpful.
Friendly staff, relaxing and quiet location.
Close to town centre
Not well ventilated and street noise is a problem with the solitary window open.
Nice and clean not over done very tastefu.
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!
