“Nice remote location”
Reviewed 11 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Nice homily cabin with plenty to do and see in Kangaroo Valley. Had a wonderful time here with family for the 5 days that we stayed. Only small negative was the slightly high costs for rental and the fact that linen was a supplementary charge which is normal for Kangaroo Valley, outdoor facilities in the country club could be maintained to a higher standard.

Hi Seamus, we are glad you and your family enjoyed your stay at Blue Gums Cottage and we were able to offer you a midweek package reduced to $150 per night which met your budget, which included an option to bring your own linen, which you decided to do in order to reduce your costs. This included free access to the pool and tennis courts. We will be happy to pass on your remarks to the Country Club about the expectations of guests about the standards of the tennis courts.

“Nice and cosy...”
Reviewed 7 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Great little cottage... Clean and tidy.. although the weather was not the best for our weekend stay, the warmth and setup of the cottage made us forget about the Rain...
Great selection of DVD,s and books. Phil was easy to communicate with..One negitive would be the shower head..but apart from that we will be back for sure...

Hi Paul, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Blue Gums Cottage. Thanks for the feedback on the shower head, it has now been changed and has a nicely regulated flow, but as the cottage is located on a nature reserve where water is a precious commodity, we are restricted in being able to install full pressure shower heads.

“Can't wait to get back”
Reviewed 19 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Blue Gums Cottage is simply fantastic. It is clean, nicely furnished, cosy and has everything you will need for a quiet few days away. The beds were comfy, kitchen fully equipped, there was a video library with great movies and a library of books. The big deck was the best which had a Webber BBQ and spectacular views. We even saw kangaroos and wombats wandering around the property. Played tennis on the courts with the family which are a minutes walk away. The kids just loved it and didn't want to go home, in fact it was one of those holidays where there were so many things to do the time just flew. Will definitely be back.

“Scenic Surrounds”

The cottage was very comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped which made the cokking easy. The provision of DVDs and some good books was well appreciated, The location is perfect for a relaxing holiday, I would not hesitate to stay again.

The only issue was the housekeeper coming a day earlier before the checkout to check on bed linen for the next guests at 8am in the morning. She spent more than 30 minutes until I asked her how long she would be staying as we were planning to have our shower and step out for sightseeing. Its only then that she went out with a scowl. We thought that it was very inconsederate.

Hi Ghandi

Thank you for this feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. It was the linen supplier that arrived early, not our housekeeper and we do apologize for this. Linen supplies are usually scheduled for guest changeover times midweek but as your departure was on Christmas eve and as supplies to the valley are notoriously difficult to coordinate at this busy time, we do seek your understanding on this occasion. Best wishes. Phil
