    The cottage is historic, renovated to a good hostel standard. Bedrooms (two with double beds) are quite adequate for hostelling and the kitchen is the place to be on cold evenings/mornings (the only room with an electric heater!) Security is good, with sturdy doors and a high back fence with locked gate. Access takes some map reading and driving confidence. It's close to the summit and footpaths.

    We went to the cottage for my daughters 13th surprise birthday party - she was very surprised. All the girls had a great time and they didnt have to worry about noise they made because we were out in the bush and no one could hear them. We also walked to the lookout and the girls all took photos. It was great being out in nature, we saw 3 kangaroos and a kookaburra. It was like being on holiday

    I don't want to say too much, as I don't want a rush of people clogging up the booking register and stealing my weekends away up there.

    Terrific stay in the hills. Took a group of boys up for a 12 yo birthday treat. The walk up, fabulous night in the hills and back the following morning was a huge success. Great facilities.

    We took note of previous reviews and took two small heaters with us but didn't really need them. Facilities were basic but all that we needed for a 5 night stay. It was a great place to hide from the city yet close enough to go into Adelaide when w

    Great location with fantastic views - amazing "gem" close to the city. There is however a steady stream of walkers along the nearby "Waterfall Gully" trail. Only minimal heating is available (feeble heater in lounge) however there

    a fantastic bush get away. Great for walks or just relaxing. Be prepared for the cold if going in colder months and take your own hearters.

    If you are walking the Heysen trail then this is a great spot to stop for the night.Just make sure you have plenty of warm clothing as it gets very cold at night.

    Its a very cold hostel so would be a good place to visit in a heat wave. You have to take your rubbish with you which is annoying especially when you go to leave and you have no other room in the car and have to put it on your lap and then find somew

    It is very cold, and we went in summer. Close to many beautiful walks/gardens etc. Probably better when children (3&6) older as no outside fencing, just bush. Wonderful to sit on the verandah to watch the wildlife(kangaroos, koalas &birds) in the eve
