OK stay @ Alstonville

Posted 24-Mar-2015
Pros: Country paddock views, pet friendliness, good pool. The setting is lovely and would be particularly fun for young kids I think.
Location: Alstonville is a lovely little village - highly recommend Quattro Country Italian restaurant.
I think this property would be best suited to winter/cool weather stays for families, as it was a bit unseasonably steamy during our stay and without aircon it was a bit uncomfortable even with fans. Everything was great, except I became aware of my reliance on technology because there are no landline telephones, no mobile phone reception, and no wifi reception (contrary to the website). I do think that this depends on what cottage you are in as we were right down the bottom. So my tip is to research/print out maps and places you want to go beforehand and don't assume you can just google when you get there. If you are ok with exploring to find food options obviously this isn't a problem at all - but we had a furry child with us that we couldn't take just anywhere.

Great location and fantastic hosts

Posted 19-Sep-2013
Pros: Great location Peaceful setting Fantastic hosts
Location: Location in rolling hills, just outside Alstonville and a short drive to the beach-fantastic
We stayed for two nights and loved it. The hosts, Julie and Craig, are very friendly and helpful and went out of their way to assist us with every request-even to get a few of the fantastic free-range eggs for breakfast. The location is second to none, a quiet location in rolling hills, but still close to the beach; perfect for us. The accommodation are basic but very functional and perfectly located cottages/cabins with all the creature comfort we needed. Overall, we can only highly recommend Alstonville Country Cottages, they are a fantastic get-away and we will certainly be returning.

Pros: Pet friendly ! the area and quiet atmosphere are nice
Cons: Cabin was basic, old in need of make over, not comfortable, unattractive fittings and furnishings, everything was cheap/uncomfortable
Location: very peaceful and pretty
Facilities: basic little dirty old; Value: Over-priced; Service: Polite, friendly on check in; Cleanliness: Lacking, mouldy shower; this could be a nice place if they either charged less accordingly or upgraded the cabins inside completely for the money charged to seem like value
