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.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Perfect place for an Adelaide Hills getaway
Upon booking here, there wasnt too much in the way of reviews on Aldgate Creek Cottages, but the pictures and the reviews I did find seemed to me to be impressive. I thought to myself "why hadn't I stumbled across this place before?" After booking I got a lovely personalised email from the host (whom is an absolute gentleman Terry) telling my specifics about the place etc. This was next level customer service in my eyes. Impressive. Upon arrival you are greeted by the hosts and taken through their stunningly tranquil garden to this beautiful cottage near a running creek. Inside the cottage it is very cosy, charming and modern yet traditional. Terry was kind of enough to provide us with a bottle of wine (my wifes favourite drop) The garden has a couple of bridges that lead onto the main road in Aldgate, so going to dinner. You really do not need the car. Inside the cottage, there is an open fire, some comfy chairs/sofa and a TV with netflix. Wifi is fantastic here too. The bed is very comfortable and the inside of the cottage heats up easily. So no need to worry about being cold in winter. Breakfast provisions provided and again lovely. We were also treated to a small local produce platter that was very impressive. This review may seem all of the place. That is because there is just so many good things to say about this place. I absolutely loved it and it will be one of those places that will be forever etched in my memory. Hotels, B&B's or any other type of accommodation could learn a lot from these hosts. Just subtle little extra efforts that make your stay feel so much more special go a long way. Definitely will be back. Brilliant. Cannot fault

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a wonderful and detailed review. Having taken ownership and re-opened the Cottage late last year we are obviously keen to have a few more reviews online for people to get a sense of what the the experience is like (particularly when they read like yours of course....)! It was lovely to meet you both and help make your anniversary the special occasion that you were looking for. Staying in the centre of Aldgate certainly makes for easy access to so many things, yet at the same time it does feel so private. We certainly look forward to helping make your next stay just as enjoyable. Thanks again, Terry & Fiona

Thank you so much for the feedback. We really enjoyed having you both here for your visit and getting the chance to hear about your future plans. The Adelaide Hills is such a wonderful place to live, and getting to share a bit of it with our guests is something that both Fiona and I really enjoy! We are looking forward to catching up with you both next year :-) Cheers!

An enchatining getaway
We had a wonderful family stay it was so comfortable and cosy we just did not want to leave. The fantasy garden and creek was just so relaxing. We would love to stay again. It was great to visit Hahndorf for the day and view the Mt Lofty Gardens.

A PERFECT COTTAGE IN A GREAT LOCATION
the cottage is perfect for two people, very private and so central for touring the Adelaide hills and all it's scenery and history. situated close to shops, cafe's, restaurants, hotel. the cottage is two storey, mezzanine floor, large bedroom with balcony, and downstairs living/dining area and bathroom with spa. Outside balcony and lovely gardens with creek and large trees. Very romantic getaway for that special occasion
