“Simplicity, luxury, privacy, in a cool neighbourhood,”
Reviewed 7 April 2014 for a stay in January 2014

We chose this place as it reminded me of the old Sydney I grew up admiring and fantasising about. I hadn't been to Sydney for some years but had heard Newtown was eclectic with great food. The latter is my main motivation in life!
And it was all that and more. The cottage is traditional, sophisticated, well-maintained and cosy. It was cool in the hot weather and adjacent to a large park with trees, so a picnic outdoors at dusk was well-time and much-needed.
The rooms themselves were comfortable and stylish without too much clutter. It still felt homely without being claustrophobic or precious. The kitchen was perfect to look after ourselves when we wanted to stay in and watch movies.
The locale was amazing. Newtown has so much to see, day and night. Food at every bend which is well-priced, for a variety of palates.
In essence, everything was easy. As a doctor I often stay at hotels and have avoided smaller companies for fear of complications or extra stress. I am converted and love this place. I love the ease of booking and arrival, the cleanliness, flexibility and security of the accommodation and the location. Can't recommend it highly enough!!!!

“Just Perfect”
Reviewed 27 March 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Came in for a conference at the hospital. It is literally in a perfect location just steps to: pubs/cafes on King Street, RPA, and Newtown Train stop.

Clean. Nice décor.

Judith was polite and professional.

Will definitely stay here again.

“Perfect location for Sydney sight seeing.”
Reviewed 2 April 2012 for a stay in March 2012

There were no glitches, we arrived and the place was just as in the photos and very clean. Stayed with my parents and my teenage boys. My boys enjoyed the steep stairs to the loft-like area, and agreed to share the full-size bed. Enjoyed finding monopoly and playing that too.
My parents stated their bed was very comfortable as was ours, so sleeping 6 was fine.
We were able to purchase the USB modem time without any problems, but would have much prefered a wireless hotspot, as we had 2 different computers etc that we wanted to get, and setting up the USB modem didn't work on Mac. There is barely any TV signal, just 3 channels of staticky picture, so limited in catching the news.
As our time was mainly sight seeing, this was not critical. The cottage is just 2 blocks to the train station and Newtown, is just 4 train stops away from the main tourist area around Central station. Perfect for us to see the Rocks, Opera, etc and then come back to change before heading out for evening and supper! Grocery star also only 1 block away and plenty of restaurants right there.

Hi Angela - Thank you for the review, I am delighted that you enjoyed the Cottage and found the location so convenient but I was really mystified by your comments about the TV reception because the large flat screen TV in the lounge room has 24 channels and every one gets a crystal clear reception, perhaps it was set to DVD mode? but it sounds like you were out and about most time anyway so I'm glad that was not an issue. Regards Judith
