Fantastic property, everything clean and comfortable. Convenient location. Extremely comfortable beds. Only criticism was no tv in house - TVs in buildings outside doesn’t suit everyone.

8/10 Very good

Great location
A fantastic place to stay close to central Bendigo. Room was spacious, kitchen well stocked and bathroom modern and clean. VERY noisy to sleep in Room 5 as evaporative cooler system on roof is located meters from this second story bedroom’s window. Even with earplugs we could feel the vibration and hear the motor. Tried unsuccessfully to negotiate with other guests to turn off cooling system over night. I would stay here again but not in this room in warm weather.

10/10 Exceptional

Our 3 year old had great fun stroking the chickens and looking for eggs in the charming garden and hobby area and playing with the provided toys or going over to the shady play ground nearby. We were very impressed by the standards of the kitchen and the fridge stocked with home grown eggs. Close-by we also enjoyed some unusual variations on hamburgers (we lucked on hamburger night when all the burgers were nearly half price!) and some lovely home made deserts at the local pub.
