Quaint old cottage house right on main street in town. Being an old house & our booking being a family room set up out on the back verandah, being all that was available at the time, we found it very cramped even as a couple only. Cannot imagine staying in this set up with two other people or children & their luggage. Shower is over a bath & dangerous for children or seniors as no anti slip mat provided. We did not realise house was booked out to 4 bookings all allocated their own lockable sleeping space & shower in each bedroom. Other than that, main areas inside front of house at passage & kitchen are well set up, owner & cleaners friendly & good access to all amenities in town. Road noise during business hours.

Charming cottage in the Main Street.

Pros: The location was great and you just felt you were at home.
Cons: Not really...maybe the bed room rug could do with a shampoo.
Location: Right in the centre of a quite town the house is the old post office house,with a butcher shop,backery restruants and woolies.Stanley is a short drive
This is the old post office house,it has been lovingly decorated to its old world charm. Our ensuite room was 3 rooms at the back of the house and was quite spacious. The aminites were excellent and our cotact person was friendly and very helpful. Really enjoyed our stay. Highly recommend the Tarkine Oyster shop.

Pleasant comfortable stay

No host to receive us but entry was organised very easily. Room was very clean and comfortable with access to shared kitchen if needed. 2 minor detracting were 1) No flyscreens on windows and no latch to hold the hopper window up. (Not an issue unless it's a warm night which we had). 2) The King size bed though very comfortable was made up of two singles together. Not so much of an issue except they were both on castors so they moved away from the wall if you wished to sit up reading or came apart during the night. Neefed something to stop movements.

NEVER NEVER book Unit 4!

Pros: Not very much
Cons: Unit 4 should be reviewed for safety issues and for overall space to be shared by up to 4 people.
Location: Beautiful Allendale Gardens at Edith Creek. Fabulous experience.
Manager didn't meet us. Cramped space; two fold-up metal beds and one double - absolutely dreadful! TV was housed in wardrobe - viewed only by sitting on double bed. All crockery and jug, etc in wardrobe cupboard - nowhere to plug in jug. hot tap over bath not working. After complaint, Manager provided two single beds in another unit - this was much more comfortable for my 88 year old sister and niece. Was not informed there was a shared kitchen - found this out after accessing Unit 3. I definitely would not recommend this particular venue to anyone --- Do not book Unit 4 to any other customer. Most distressing stay of our whole trip. M Kelly

We had room 4

Pros: Close to supermarket
Cons: The fold out beds were not adequate and other options should be provided.
Location: Nice and central
It was too small for 2 adults and 2 teenagers. Fold out beds were very squeaky so difficult for them to sleep.
