Didn’t get the accommodation booked, “cottage” was barely fit for habitation, no reduction in rate offered or given after complaint. Restaurant a shambles, food being brought in from adjoining pizza shop and cafe.

We stayed at the Family Cottage - convenient location (easy drive to all Broken Hill has to offer), great facilities, reasonable rates and everything that might be needed for the duration of a stay is provided. The exhaust fan in the bathroom does need to be replaced or repaired as it is quite noisy and the oven needs a good clean but otherwise everything is spot on. Thank you for the great hospitality!

Thank you for your positive review. Happy to make your stay as comfortable as possible

Stayed at the Chapple St cottage - great accommodation for the two of us. Could cope with 2 couples but might get a bit squishy sharing single bathroom. 2 adults 2 kids easy as well. Cute and secure cottage a bit far for walk to town - but easy drive - and distance kept it quiet each night. Comfortable rooms and furnishings and off street parking.
