Port Fairy is a lovely small town just west of the Ocean Road start, and we booked at the Clonmarra Cottages for the night before. The facility is incredible, with beautiful self contained cottages for guests - our cottage (and they...

Stayed at Clonmara Cottages last night and were very impressed with everything. The owners were very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable about things to do, see, eat and drink locally. The cottages were fabulous and included so many little extras that would not be expected. We would thoroughly recommend this place and only wish we could have stayed a couple of...

We got the warmest of welcomes, lots of information about the festival underway in town, pointers for the best places to eat and drink and things to do...after that, it was clear that two days would not be long enough! We were in one of the Terrace rooms overlooking the fields north of the property. The gardens where all the...

We stayed in the Cherry Plum Cottage and it was absolutely beautiful. It was lovely to sit out the front watching the birds fly over and chat to the alpacas who hang out the back. The ladies who run it were very helpful and gave us an overview of the town and what to see. We would definitely stay here...

Great one bedroom cottage, comfortable unit, bed just ok, view very nice, balcony ok, however u could hear neighbouring guests if they were on their balcony next door, garden surrounding beautiful. Breakfast good, however came later than ordered. Suggest that you hand the order to the owners rather than leave in the breakfast box as advised. Recommend the scones on...

Thank you for taking the time to review us. I have to admit that this is the first comment we have received on neighbours from this studio in 16 years. Also it is the first time in 16 years I overlooked preparing a breakfast. Hopefully guests will not need to have to hand their order to me, in future. I...

Driving from Robe down the Great Ocean Road we arrived at Clonmarra Cottages. Our accomodation was a one bedroom cottage. The cottage was spotlessly clean and well equipped. Lovely bathroom with a jacuzzi bath and nice smelling toiletries. The only downside was as two single people there was only a double bed and a folding bed which had to be...

Thank you for taking the time to review us Unfortunately, we don't have single beds and the Booking.com does not actually offer single beds on our site for that reason. Fortunately for all of us, we were able to locate a single bed! We are however very pleased that you enjoyed your stay and that you felt 'looked after'. Perhaps,...
