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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The cottage provided everything we needed for our stay making it an enjoyable stress free time. A quaint cottage which presented well and was a great base for exploring the beautiful surrounding areas of Harrietville and nearby Bright.

Disappointed with state of the property.
Property was not ready for our arrival. Unclean and not well maintained. Smelt damp and musty. Dishes on the sink, mugs were tea stained, crumbs on the bench, unclean surfaces, dirty toilet ,one tea towel and one roll of toilet paper for 7night stay, BBQ dirty, bathroom and kitchen sinks stained and dirty, Laundry area unclean, dryer had lint coming out the door, cobwebs and spiders throughout the house, unsafe step up to an old deck in poor repair, large holes in the fly wire door, door handle to 2nd bedroom fell off, front door would not lock, burn mark on the carpet, brochures for tourists information out of date, flat batteries in tv remote, sheets had pen marks, no pillow case protectors.

Cute cottage in lovely location but could use some TLC
In general this is a lovely quaint little cottage, perfect size for a couple, in a good location (so long as you don't mind being away from the hustle & bustle of Bright). Owners are lovely & welcoming. We have 3 very small dogs and the little yard in front of the cottage was secure enough for them & the garden was nice for a supervised sniff session (although it is much smaller than it looks in the photos). Only negative was that the cottage really needs a bit of TLC (e.g. flyscreens have some big holes) & the 'occassional' cleaning things like cleaning window frames really are overdue. P.s. would highly recommend the almond croissant & vanilla slice from the Harrietville Bakery, which is 5 minutes walk down the road.
