Rated 5 out of 5 by from A beautiful place to stay We had a great time. A lovely place to stay for a week or weekend. We stayed in the chapel and it was great. A high chair and travel cot were provided for our baby and the heating was very cozy. Close to all the main attractions and it was nice and quiet to stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect little cottage A perfect spot for a two night getaway - far better than a hotel or B&B room elsewhere.Great quiet location but so close to the the Leura Mall for shopping and eating treats. The accommodation was very clean, cosy, warm and comfortable and equipped with all you need for a couple Look forward to returning in the spring to see the lovely garden will definitely be back for another stay

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely retreat We enjoyed our stay - the weather was cold and the Priest's Cottage was a cozy place for two. The property is very close to the Leura Mall which was very convenient. We were able to self cater as well as enjoy the restaurants in Leura. The Autumn colours were spectacular.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We stayed for two nights and found the cottage flawless.The cottage is tastefully appointed with everything needed to relax and self-cater. It is very peaceful yet close to Leura mall. The various accommodation facilities in St Raophael are set in lovely grounds that provide a beautiful aspect from the cottage windows. We have found the place to stay in the mountains.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It was a beautifully equipped, comfortable cottage in a lovely setting, about a 10 minute walk from the heart of Leura. Our host was very friendly and the organisation of our stay went very smoothly. Loved being able to swing the tv to the two different rooms via the wall mount, and the outdoor setting helped us enjoy the garden. Leura is a small town full of lots of interest and the trolley bus hop on hop off was very convenient, including for going on walks - helpful driver.
