Very nice place to stay

Pros: Quiet area, close to attractions in Hahndorf, nice surroundings, the cottage is clean and cosy, very well equipped, welcoming hosts.
Cons: Benchtop in the kitchen area feels a bit small for cooking using the provided portable appliance (electric hotplate or frypan).
Location: Hanhdorf being first German settlement in Australia is a place with a lot of character and definitely should be recommended to visit.
We stayed in the Wren Cottage for two nights in May . The area is very quiet, on a side street but just a few minute walk away from Hahndorf's attractions. The cottage is an attachement to the two storey building so we had all that area to ourselves. In front of the cottage there are a lot of trees and bushes (which can be enjoyed from verandah in warmer days); and there is a paddock at the back with green grass, sheep and occasional kangaroo. Bird lovers can enjoy variety of parrots flocking to the area around the cottage every morning. The cottage inside is very cosy, clean, with very good bedding and equipped with everything you may need. Huge thanks to our hostess Vanessa for very warm welcome and providing complete information about the cottage and places to visit in Hahndorf . It was very enjoyable experience overall; definitely can be recommended.

Thank you for your review. I am so pleased you enjoyed the native wildlife that comes in daily. It was lovely to meet you and to share this with you. The native birds are nesting at present and are coming in daily with their new chicks.

Two minute walk to Main Street. Set in beautiful gardens with country views and birds feeding at your window. Comfortable room with all you need for a great stay. Lovely hostess. Perfect.

Not for wheelchairs

Despite the need to be ambulant this is a great place to stay. Beautiful gardens visited by many birds. Cute cottage at the end of an up and down path. Plentiful breakfast provisions. Attentive and caring hostess, not invasive but available

Great location in Hahndorf

Lovely comfortable room with beautiful linen and gorgeous soft throw rugs, perfectly warm on a freezing night. Excellent location, nice to have to walk in the quiet street before hitting the main road. Only downfall was the shower head was a bit small and my shower went cold when I had shampoo in, think the next door room was using their shower at the same time? But bath water was hot thankfully so used that instead.
