Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cosy and Comfortable rustic cottage Marlene and John have obviously put a lot of thought and hard work into making this historic rustic cottage comfortable over the years, and equipping it with all of the essentials needed for a short stay. We loved that the fire was already going and the cottage warm and comfortable on our arrival. Thoughtful choice of artworks throughout the cottage, including Marlene's own was a nice touch and gave the cottage even more character. Really comfortable bed, having the electric blanket already on was a pleasant surprise on a cold night! Would be good to have some information available about the history of the house - surely there's plenty to tell! Shame that the weather was such that we couldn't make more use of the verandah/view. A pleasant, relaxing and comfortable stay - privacy assured.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely miners cottage Lovely cottage, centrally located in Clunes. The fire was burning when we arrived, and while it was very cold outside, the cottage was very warm. John was very friendly and helpful, and they left us ample breakfast supplies. The kitchen did not have an oven, however there was a microwave and large electric frypan that I was able to use to cook pasta. We were very happy that we were able to bring are two small dogs, who appeared to have a lovely weekend in Clunes!! We have rebooked the cottage.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quiet getaway We enjoyed our stay at Paddymelon Cottage. The verandah is a lovely place to sit and read and it is a pleasant walk into town. We slept well in the comfortable beds, and found the air conditioner useful. Marlene and John are friendly and helpful and were also very respectful of our privacy. The kitchen is basic, and not set up for long term self catering, with no cooktop, minimal bench space and just a small bar fridge. However there is an excellent barbecue, a convection oven, an electric fry pan and a coffee plunger. Overall we recommend Paddymelon Cottage for a quiet, comfortable and restful break.
