Older property - Smaller then depicted in the photos
Just came back from spending the weekend at this property - it's a alot smaller than we thought. We had three adults and one teenager in our group and really you wouldn't want any more than four people staying due to the size of the living area and the very small kitchen. The third bedroom is very very small and would only suit a small child due to the size of it and for this reason we didn't use it. When we arrived in the afternoon around 4pm and tried the light the gas heating we couldn't get it start so after much googling and reading of manuals we had to contact the owner, who did arrange for someone to come and have a look at it but couldn't fix it and we were expecting temperatures of -6 over night. We had already lite the open fire to try and warm the place up but really unless you were standing on top of it it really gave out no heat at all. So it was a night of beanies blankets and gloves to try and stay warm and there is no heating at all in the bedrooms. Thank goodness that there was electric blankets on the beds, but one of them wasn't working and we had to switch them over so that everyone in our group had an electric blanket on their bed. Look to be honest we had a few issues whilst staying there and it's to be expected with such an old property which I have advised the owner of already and they did have the gas heating fixed for us on the Saturday so that we didn't have to freeze thru our second night stay.
Clean and comfortable with beautiful view
A good place to stay away from the centre of town. The washing machine cycle appeared to stop at Deep Rinse and needed manual addition of water, a bit of a problem when doing several days washing for 5.
Thanks for letting me know about the washing machine - we appreciate it.
We will have it looked at.
Thanks for staying we are glad that you enjoyed it.
Too cold for winter.
Cute campy type of place but it never warmed up at night...very cold in the bedrooms and bathroom.
The Blue Mountains is known for its beautiful cold winters. The gas heater warms up the cottage quickly and we have electric blankets on each bed. There is also the choice of a wood fire which is romantic and fun.
Pleasant house, lovely view
Comfy little cottage, though very hard to find if arriving after dark: no clear house number and no streetlights (no security light on the porch either, we had to use our phones to find the key safe!) The house was really cold when we arrived but the gas fire was lovely once it got going. Thanks for the fairy lights and champagne, but we also would have loved some coffee (desperately!) and some dishwasher tablets. Great view and the snowdrops and daffodils in the charming garden were really cheering.
Thanks for your review. We will take your suggestions on board and we appreciate your comments. We always have coffee for our guests so I am sorry that there was not any available for you. The dishwasher tables are usually in a container under the sink. Yes it gets really cold up in the mountains and the gas heater certainly gets the house warm in a jiffy. We are glad you enjoyed the winter garden.
Peaceful and relaxing
Our stay was very relaxing. The cottage had everything we needed and being away from the hussel and bussel made it quiet and peaceful.
Thank you for staying at Aurora Cottage. We are glad that you enjoyed the peaceful break. You were wonderful guests are you are most welcome back in the future.
We stayed at this property in August. This was our first time booking accommodation thru Stayz and we were not disappointed . The place was like in photos,very clean and comfortable . We loved the window wall overlooking mountains. It was very quiet and pretty even though it was on outskirts of Katoomba. We felt like we were out there in the centre of mountains. Gardens are pretty and well maintained. The owners were very good and accommodating. Answered all our emails promptly. Would stay here again and would recommend it to our friends.
Thank you Vera for your review. You were a very thoughtful and respectful guest and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
