We were very happy with our stay at this property. There were a few small issues but these were handled quickly by the owners. My one problem with this stay was the lack of WiFi and mobile service in the area. We had my 96yr old mother with us and if she had a fall or taken ill we would have been in trouble.

We liked the location so close to town but far away enough to be a total country feel, so peaceful The open plan living area and comfy beds were great There is nothing we didn’t like

Hi there, We are glad you loved our place. We would love to know how we could have got 5/5 though, considering you say "nothing you didn't like". Always looking to improve. :)

Never again

Was called 30mins before arriving to be able they had not got our booking... that’s wotif had done it to them again for the 4th time!! They found us a new place, but it was nothing like we booked... our whole weekend was a waste and left a sour taste in our mouth... I feel ripped off and cheated out of our only holiday for the year.. no full refund was offered... I feel cheated by wotif and the hotel... how people can run a company like this is beyond me.. I’m still not happy about it all!!!

Hi Amanda, We are very sorry about your experience. As mentioned on the phone, it was out of our control and we did everything we could to find alternative accommodation for you at very short notice. We hope you will consider Mittagong again, as you are yet to experience the great hospitality and facilities we offer. We take your feedback as feedback for Wotif and Expedia, and we have followed up with them to get the process corrected for any future bookings as well. Again, we are very sorry for your experience and hope to make it up to you in the future.

Hi Penny, We very much enjoyed your visit to Mittagong Homestead and we are glad you got a lot of bike trips fitted in. Yes, Coles Road is a bit rough in sections, so it is better to avoid it. Hope to see you back again soon.

we liked the farm stay rooms were spacious

Pros: Wotif
Cons: Clean the squashed mosquitos off the walls and ceilings. You won an award in 1999 and I felt you didn't live up to that award.
Location: Bit out of town of Alexandra, the rail trail was good we went biking on the trail and saw some spectacular views which we wouldn't have seen travellin
The kitchen was well stocked with provisions for breakfast. Nice spacious bathroom, the only things that let it down was the sheets and pillow cases were wrinkly and not ironed, to me presentation is important. What I didn't like was there was over a dozen blood filled squashed mosquitos on the walls and ceiling which made the room look terrible. Instead of counting sheep before we went to sleep we were counting squashed mosquitos.

Quiet friendly place to stay

Pros: Peace, quiet, hospitality excellent, friendly unpretentious and nonintrusive.
Cons: Homely quality bit part of its charm.
Location: Alexandra, Mansfield, good honest countryside.
A wonderfully secluded spot in Australian countryside. Warm and hospitable staff and a pleasure to be there.

Great country style rustic cottage.

Pros: Comfortable, warm, good breakfast great location, very peaceful
Cons: Brochure says use the tennis court ,I don't think so, landscaped gardens are long gone
Location: Visit Yarck soap factory, more interesting than it sounds
Great 2 bedroom cottage in a beautiful valley, everything you need provided. Make the most of the near by hills, enjoy the views and local pubs, coffee shops etc.

Thanks for your visit to Mittagong and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. With respect to your comments regarding the tennis court & gardens - due to high rainfall here during winter we are not able to keep the maintenance to a high standard. We would love to see you again in summer.

A restful stay

Pros: good location and provided exactly what we were looking for.
Cons: Having a scourer in the kitchen! It's hard to wash up dishes with only a sponge!!
Location: Bushwalks in Eildon national Park, cycling the Great Victorian Rail trail, lovely unspoilt forest in the Cathedrals Range state park, Rubicon river..
We enjoyed our weekend at Mittagong. It is a lovely spot in the hills around Alexandra. We loved exploring the nearby countryside and the fire and spa at the property. It was nice to walk up the hill in the late afternoon, spotting kangaroos and enjoying the view.
