My husband and I recently spent 2 nights in the Magnolia Cottage at Monreale in the Dandenongs. What a beautiful peaceful weekend. We arrived just on dark to a romantically lit cottage, music playing quietly in the background and a fridge full of breakfast supplies. I had ordered dinner to the room so after unpacking and settling in with our...

My family stayed in the Magnolia Retreat for one night. The cottage is spacious and well appointed. Delicious breakfast hamper in the room for the next morning. The cottage is set amongst beautiful lush gardens and very private. The robes and slippers were a lovely touch to the whole experience as were the candles in the bathroom. If you are...

We bought a two night package and stayed in Steeple Cottage. When we arrived I was unable to raise anyone at reception which was a bit disconcerting, but we went to our cottage and found it all in readiness for us. Key was in the door, aircon on, soft music playing, breakfast supplies in place. We wanted for nothing -...

We purchased a 2-night deal via Cudo for a midweek stay, which was fully paid for and booked last month. Unfortunately the morning we were due to arrive, our young son became extremely ill so we were forced to change our plans. After both calling and emailing at 8am to inform them of our circumstances, I had hoped to appeal...

Had the pleasure of staying up 2 nights at the Tranquility Cottage. Perfect for an escape into peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Cheryl was most accomodating and I can see how this place has won numerous awards previously. Nice little touches to make you feel welcome right down to the very shower cap...

Such a beautiful tranquil home away from home. The cottages provide everything you need to escape the stresses of everyday life and enjoy some R&R. We loved that you could take a spa in front of the fireplace whilst enjoying the view of the tranquil gardens surrounding the cottage. Cheryl and Karl are the perfect hosts, and have thought of...

Excellent experience! Would definitely recommend Cottages Monreale, if you would like to feel that you are special and want to be pampered and just chill out. Dining in or eating out were both great options. Having a private massage and spa is just heaven! Will be back that's for sure. Thankyou Cheryl and Karl and Team.

Catherine and I have had the pleasure of visiting Monreale estate on a number of occasions and have always found the property to be excellent. The position and environment of the cottages are ideal for a secluded getaway especially when seeking good surroundings representative of the best that the beautiful Dandenong Ranges offers visitors. The hosts are delightful and attentive;...
