We booked Cambridge Cottages for our Wedding Day as a place to get ready prior to the ceremony, come back to in between the Ceremony and Reception and to spend our Wedding night in.
Kevin & Julie are the perfect hosts, warm, welcoming, acommodating, generous and hospitable. Julie made sandwiches for the bridal party for lunch and finger food for us between the ceremony and reception. What can I say.. the food was 5 star quality, absolutely beautiful, we could not have asked for better.
The gardens are magnificent, the cottages (we stayed in Kookaburra Cottage) absolutely beautiful, with relaxing music playing on our arrival and fresh flowers. The cottages are set up to ensure that you get absolute privacy from any other guests, we have never seen or heard anyone else in any of our time there.
When we returned from our reception, a candlelit spa had been set up for us, with a beautiful personalised cake waiting and everything had been straightened up again beautifully to welcome us back.
Julie & Kevin go well and truly above and beyond as hosts, and I would not hesitate to recommend this property as the perfect place to stay if you visit the Dandenongs.
I should mention that we went back for our first wedding anniversary in 2008, spent 2 nights and had a magnificent time, this time organising a 3 course meal in our rooms (absolute restaurant quality, just gorgeous). The breakfasts are just as amazing, you won't be disappointed! We are returning for our 2nd wedding anniversary in 2009..
