This was our our second visit to Nullarbor Cottages and our stay was amazing. We found the calm we sought. It is the perfect destination to cap a road trip with mountain views and clean air. Cottage was cozy with a homely vibe; clean and well-equipped. Loads of privacy and enough space to wander. Staff was super helpful as well. Two thumbs up ;)

I always have such a nice experience at Nullarbor. The units are always very clean and the host’s go out of their away to accommodate guests. The fact that you can take along your fur kids is welcomed. Highly recommend for a getaway from city life.

The place was beautiful, clean, and well kept. Nice and secluded among bushes n trees. The staff and owner are very friendly. Jenny super host as I arrived late in the evening, and she tracked my drive via WhatsApp location to ensure I was safe and arrived at my destination. Had a good night’s rest and was very impressed, did not experience any problems. Loved my stay and it is so peaceful there. Lovely view over the mountains. I look forward to another stay, will definitely book again with a group of friends to enjoy. P.s 1 night is not enough😏

We loved our stay at Unit 4 Hornbill Lodge. The cottage is cosy and has everything you could need. The fenced off area was ample enough for our little dachshunds to run around to their heart's content. The place is a distance from the main road and the route is bumpy, it can be done in a small car but it will require a lot of patience.

Thanks for posting your lovely review - we are very glad you and your dachshunds enjoyed your break on our beautiful farm. We look forward to welcoming you back again - we are in the process of addressing the bumpy road with help from our neighbors and hope the rains are kind and not wash it away. Looking forward to your next visit.

We arrived to a quaint cottage but when we wanted to go to bed we realised the sheets had not been changed since last guests left. We tried to be lenient but the host then left us with the dirty sheets and mud (?) on the blankets in our cottage for two days AND expected us to touch other peoples mess and clean up after them as she had to run off to a memorial service.. We paid for a clean and hygienic environment and were left in the mess for two out of the three days stay. We could not even sleep in the bed the first night and were expected to pay for this experience. The host offered a cheap fix for a terrible experience. We are disgusted at how the situation was managed. We would have left, but had nowhere else to go and had already paid. We felt that the host took advantage of this. Terrible experience that took away from what was supposed to be a break from reality.

We are very sorry that you had a bad experience - it is not our custom to treat our guests disrespectfully. The cottage had been cleaned but there were some hairs caught in the sheets. I raised this issue with laundry to ensure that in future we thoroughly check laundry to ensure cleanliness in all respects and ensure that this does not happen again. I would also like to apologise that I was unable to make up the bed myself as I was running late to meet a bus to attend a memorial service and as we do not have any staff on the property I could not arrange for anyone else to come in and assist. I could also not collect the linen when I arrived back as it was late and did not wish to disturb you at night. I can assure you that I did my best in the circumstances - I could not offer you alternative accommodation as we were fully booked for the long weekend. If you had requested a refund I would gladly have provided but you advised me that you would stay when I provided the fresh linen. I had no idea you were so aggrieved.

The owner was amazing and very helpful, called us ahead to inform that the cottage is ready if we wanted to check in earlier. Cottage was spaces and the fireplace was awesome especially with the weather we had.

Loads of private space for the dogs to run around in. The cottages are very nicely laid out and has everything you could need. Multiple pools around the property. An overall lovely weekend away with your fur babies.

I will still choose Nullarbor at anytime for my getaways, it’s peaceful, neat and lovely. Jenny is the most friendliest person I’ve ever met. I will recommend this place to anyone. Kitchen is well equipped with everything, all you need to bring is your food.

My wife and I spent our wedding anniversary weekend at Nullarbor Cottages in late Feb 2022. It was a pleasant and welcome weekend away for the both of us as we needed a quiet place to get away to. Nullarbor Cottages provided just that. We thoroughly enjoyed our self-catering stay at Nullarbor. We stayed at the Loeries Nest Cottage. We especially loved the natural light his and hers shower area. Breakfast in the morning under your own little lapa was really good. You also have a carport for your vehicle which was welcomed. The road getting to Nullarbor Cottages would definitely need a vehicle with good ground clearance, preferably a SUV type of vehicle. All in all we had a lovely weekend away at Nullarbor Cottages and we would certainly recommend it for a quiet weekend away.
