Horton on Dromana Hill is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from fantastic holiday house I would highly recommend this property to anyone, with or without children. I Don't normally review places that we have stayed but felt Horton in Dromana Hill deserved it. Having stayed in a lot of places I would have to say that this property was by far the most popular. It was well equipped and from the moment we stepped foot inside we felt right at home.we would and will definitely return. Thank you so much John and Nellie you were fantastic to deal with from the word go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our stay at Horton was amazing. The atmosphere at the house was calming. We had two families stay there together and after being there for a few hours the kids ranging in age from 6 to 17 were all saying that we had to come back and only stay at Horton. By the time we left we were so relaxed. John made everything so easy for our stay. Looking forward to our next trip to Dromana.Cheers

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Had a wonderful week stay at Horton over the new year period. Absolutely loved the decor. New Years Eve was magical as you can see all the fireworks across the bay from the front balcony, especially from Arthurs Seat. Great location with fantastic views, not to far from the beach and shops and plenty of things to do if you just want to hang around the house. Did not want to leave!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved this house from the moment we walked in. The amount of space meant everyone had a spot to relax, both the kids & adults were well looked after by the abundance of great games, puzzles & books, not once in 7 days did anyone say they were bored and we hardly left the place! Oh and the coffee machine & BBQ were a hit too. The owners made us feel very welcome and we have all said we would love to stay again.
