    The Sweetest Little Cottage!
    • Leisure trip
    • Couple
    • Queen Room
    • Stayed 3 nights

    I didn't notice when I booked that the property doesn't have internet/wifi. I'm still glad we stayed there and would stay again, but having wifi would be really helpful for international travelers (like us) or people who like using their devices while away.

    I loved this cottage! My husband and I stayed 3 nights and were very comfy. The gas fireplace worked great and the kitchen was well set up. It was lovely to have local family visit us there too and we all enjoyed sitting out in the garden for afternoon tea. The location is perfect too - close to the shops, supermarket, and train station. I believe it's worth the extra money to have the convenience and privacy of the cottage over staying in a B&B or motel.

    Refer above

    Access is via a real estate agent, who have extra contract conditions and an add on fee. This detracts from a great property. Who wants to be interrupted by the agent when every other property using the booking.com rules. Just bureaucratic nonsense

    Perfect place to stay in Castlemaine
    • Leisure trip

    • Queen Room
    • Stayed 2 nights

    Nothing really - we were there during a public holiday so never got the chance to meet the hosts, so a bit of the human touch missing, that said - communication up front was good

    Beautiful small house in the middle of castlemaine, with walking distance to most of town. Great private garden, with a BBQ, which was perfect with our small kids. Good hiking in the area. Like the small gifts on arrival

    Comfy cottage in central location

    The bathroom was a little chilly with its stone floor and high ceilings - but then it was winter, and the water was nice and hot and the towels were plentiful.

    The kitchen was well equipped for self-catering and the lounge room was comfortable, with an excellent gas heater that heated the kitchen, bedroom and lounge effectively.

    There was plenty of room, it was clean, the bed was comfy, was in a great position close to shops and restaurants and a welcoming touch with chocolates and wine in the fridge. There was everything to like about Templeton Cottage...we loved it.

    We anticipated that checking in at the estate agent would be a hassle, but in fact it wasn't a problem.

    This is a delightful cottage in a central location, yet it has a rural feel about it as it is set back from the road in a cottage garden. It is beautifully decorated and well equipped and comfortable. It is full of character and charm.

    • Family with older children

    Can't seem to control the heating so it was either on and very warm (too warm) or off and too cool - but it must be said, the heater works very well! Also the fact that even though there were only two of us, mother and daughter, the extra charge per night to use a single bed was too high.

    The location is brilliant and the cottage very comfortable, wonderfully quiet at night and you have everything you need.
