Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Our family had an absolutely fabulous experience staying at Bandalong cottages (October and return visit in December 2023. The cottage is beautifully appointed with everything and more. Wonderful comfortable beds, beautiful furniture with the addition of books, games and movies. The outlook from our Kurrajong cottage was perfect, wildlife in abundance every morning and afternoon. Added bonus Kurrajong is a dog friendly cottage. The hosts Diana and Catherine are brilliant. Providing personal touches to their cottages and extremely knowledgeable about Mudgee and the surrounding district. We will be back again. Highly recommended. 5/5

Thanks Fiona and family (incl your furry one), so glad you enjoyed your most recent stay(s) and Kurrajong ticked all the boxes. Guests love the wildlife moving through at any time. We only wish they were better lawn mowers of surrounding paddocks. My sister and I look forward to welcoming you back to Bandalong soon and join the Bandalonian Club of repeat guests. Cheers Diana

Bandalong Cottages Mudgee are the ultimate destination for anyone wanting to chill and feel totally spoilt just a few short minutes from Mudgee. From the moment we arrived we were instantly relaxed and chose to spend 2 nights out of our 3 night stay at home at the cottages cooking dinner with amazing local produce. The location is serene with no traffic noise. The cottages are extremely comfortable and luxurious. Mudgee has an enormous amount to offer and we found Bandalong Cottages the perfect spot to enjoy Mudgee from. Make sure you also check out ClayCat Pottery on site. We wished we could have stayed longer.

My friends had told me how good Bandalong was but until you go yourself you never now for sure. But they were right. Lovely cottages, comfortable beds (very important when you are 6'4" and 100kgs), great peaceful location, but only a couple of minutes in to town. The cottages are so well appointed and being there in spring the flowers and butterflies were lovely as we sat on the deck enjoying a drink. Diana & Catherine gave us some great recommendations on where to go and where to eat (Blue Wren was fabulous). Plus we had great weather for our kayaking. Dunns Swamp is so pretty. We will be back.

Our third visit to Mudgee and Bandalong was as wonderful as ever. The peace if the bush, passing wildlife, the night sky are all real treats for city dwellers. As other reviewers have said, the cottages are very clean and comfortable. The few excellent restaurants in Mudgee are booked out well in advance and opening hours can make eating out a challenge. (Try Sunday evening for example). This where Bandalong cottages come into their own. The cottages are superbly equipped, making it possible to cook or barbecue properly ‘at home’ and escape the dreaded microwaved pizza! The first weekend of December is the Mudgee Cup - great fun and a highlight of the social calendar. Unusually this year, and unbeknown to locals and visitors alike, the Mudgee Cup (a highlight of the social scene) required prepurchased tickets, sold out long before race day. So disappointing having travelled from Sydney and interstate. But then, to ensure we got there, our hostess Diana used her network to find us tickets so our race gear didn’t go unused. It’s typical of her hospitality and kindness.

Hi Caroline, thanks so much for joining us again at Bandalong and for your cracking review. So glad we could secure last minute tickets to the Mudgee Cup and the weather was sensational for the event. Yes, when the restaurants are closed / booked out, collecting gorgeous Mudgee local produce for dining in is very popular with our guests. Look forward to seeing you sometime soon. Cheers Diana

We cannot recommend Bandalong Cottages enough. We had three blissful nights in Stringybark Cottage and loved it. From the welcome sample of local Shiraz to the cosy throws and furnishings to the wonderfully quirky but homely decor, this place has everything you need for a relaxing break. Books, games, DVDs and puzzles will help while away your time in front of that lovely wood fire. Even the wood is provided. Supremely comfortable beds. All the kitchen bits you’ll need and then some. Binoculars for bird watching and star gazing (that night sky!). Host Di popped in to check all was OK. We’ll be back when the weather is warmer and we can park ourselves on that verandah. Can’t wait.

Hi guys, thanks for the wrap and top marks for Stringybark. So glad you enjoyed your stay and loved the bits and bobs included in your cottage. We're very lucky to be so close to town, but far enough away to enjoy fabulous bird/wildlife and gigantic night skies. We look forward to welcoming you back to your own 'escape to the country' soon. Safe travels...

We spent 3 nights at Bandalong Cottages in Mudgee. From the minute we walked into the cabin, the attention to detail was clear. The cabin was immaculate, the beds were extremely comfortable, the kitchen was well stocked and plenty of firewood was provided for the slow combustion fireplace which heated the whole cabin easily. Our hosts had thought of everything. They were determined to ensure we had everything we needed whilst giving us the privacy and peace we wanted. The property is only minutes from the centre of Mudgee yet it is nestled in beautiful bushland on 30 acres. Each cabin has excellent privacy from the others and there are kangaroos and deer roaming the property.

Hi Rob, thanks so much for giving Bandalong top marks... we're so glad you loved your time in the cottage, and it's the little things (we refer to them as the 1%ers) that make a big difference to the self-contained accommodation experience. We'd love to welcome you back to generate a country refresh sometime soon. Until then, safe travels. Cheers Diana

We stayed at Bandalong cottages for four nights in July 2022, after two postponements due to the 2021 lockdowns. It was well worth the wait. What a gem! I hesitate to write this review as I am tempted to keep this address to myself, but that would not be fair to the wonderful owners. Communication at all stages of the booking was great. Bandalong cottages are for nature lovers and those who want to enjoy some peceful and quiet time in the bush. The vast property is a few minutes out of Mudgee town centre but very close by car. The wildlife is abundant: we saw kangaroos and many different types of birds. There is no wifi and very limited mobile reception on the property, which suited us but might not suit everyone. (Even our teenager saw the benefits of it!) However, you can watch TV, there is a wonderful collection of books, DVDs and Cds (loved the music selection!). Or just look up at night to discover the magnificent skies and constellations if you are lucky enough to be there on clear nights, like us. This is truly spectacular. Our cottage was beautifully appointed, tastefully decorated (the family is clearly very talented and artistic) and warm thanks to the great logfire. The owners have thought of everything, even a booklet of vouchers with discounts in various local wineries and shops. Mudgee and surrounds offer much to see and taste! It was a truly cherished holiday for all of us, a family of four, and our dog, and we hope to be back soon. Thank you again very much Diane and Catherine and all the very best from us.

We loved our time at bandalong cottages - we were there for four days combining both business with some time to catch up with friends and enjoy mudgee hospitality - a lovely cottage to unwind, amazing bed for deep sleep and beautiful night skies. Nothing better than staying warm with a lovely fireplace and a nice bottle of mudgee red. Best part about our stay having our golden retriever with us he loved the walks and of course lounging around. Not too far out of town quick trip to some amazing cafes and restaurant's. Our fav dog friendly cafe was the dancing goat but some good pub meals too - lovely owners - thoughtful presentation we cant wait to come back. We looked online at a lot of dog friendly places and these cottages were not only affordable but much nicer than anything else we saw so glad we stayed looking forward to going back
