My husband and I stayed in Aphrodite's Cottage earlier this month and thought it was just wonderful. We held our small wedding ceremony in the garden and spent two completely relaxing days enjoying the luxury and comfort of Aphrodite's. It really is so much more than it seems in the online photos...so much space yet beautifully cosy and private. A...

We were married here in 2001 in Aphrodite Cottage and we very much looked forward to our return to Alice's Cottages.

We stayed in the two spa rooms and it was fantastic to stay somewhere with a bit of character. The rooms were large and I enjoyed the spa at the end of each day with all the lavender products. The breakfast that was included was a lovely continental collection of local goods.

My stay at Alice's was just amazing. It really is unlike any other place I have stayed before. The location firstly is prime as it is just a few minutes away from the city. There are so many options when it comes to choosing cottages, and I couldn't go past the Aphrodite cottage. The house is very large and very...

Such a delightful place to stay. Every need is either predicted or catered for. Lovely breakfast left in fridge. Drinks for purchase if you do not wish to venture out. Luxurious spa, four-poster bed, open fire and a very quiet location make for a peaceful, pleasant stay. Owners are friendly and very helpful. I would stay here again. Highly recommend...

Stayed at their 2-bedroom Bonnie Doon cottage for 2 nights. Decor inside was lovely and reminds us very much of an English cottage, full of antiques and very comfortable. Kitchen was well stocked with enough crockeries and cutleries for 3 meals so we only need to load the dishwasher once a day. They also provide a very generous amount and...
