My husband and I were given a voucher to stay for a night in the Studio and loved it so much we stayed a couple of weeks later in the Cottage. Both gorgeous in their own right, the Studio was comfy, neat and clean. The food provisions being: home made cakes, slices, bread, jams (which you can also purchase separately), bacon, eggs, tomatoes, yoghurt, fruit and chocolates gave our stay an extra bit of care that was greatly appreciated.

Our next stay at the Cottage was just as great, but with a wonderful loft bedroom (there is also a second downstairs bedroom). Each room has its own television and the downstairs area has a fireplace, which we will definitely make use of on our next trip. Both the Cottage and the loft have a selection of books, magazines, CD's and DVDs to help your stay even more comfortable; and the corner spa's were also brilliant.

We can't recommend this place highly enough, and a quick flick of the guestbooks will show that we weren't th only ones!

We stayed in the cottage for one night while touring West Gippsland and were delighted with the experience. With wooden walls throughout, tere is a good living and kitchen area with an attic style bedroom above it. A delicious cook yourself breakfast was included and lots of other little extras such as scones and home made cake (the best carrot cake I ever tasted!).

In the evening there was a big storm and we sat happily around the log fire listening to the rain, Next day we woke up to a beautiful sunny morning and fabulous views from our upsatirs bed.

At first impressions it's a little expensive for a B&B but well worth it.for a pleasurable stay

My partner and I visit this area every November for my work, this is our fourth visit in three years. I travel around the country every year for work and stay in some amazing places but PTC takes the cake, from the quiet surrounds to the birds chirping, lush green gardens to the stunning sunsets, this place has it all and the accommodation is even better, we have stayed in the master suite and the studio, the studio offers amazing views from the balcony and lounge room with a very light and beachy feel while the master suite has amazing views from the spa and balcony and has a very country home feel with an elevated bed area. There is absolutely nothing to fault, hosts Kathy and Ray are fantastic, every thought has gone in to every aspect from the home made cakes on arrival to the lush home made pizza.

Anyone visiting the area needs to stay here once in their lives.
