Close to Caramut

6/10 Good

Pros are the quiet and seclusion, and the spacious place of the Carriage House. Cons were the dirt and lovelessness. Three bowls in a house that sleeps four, two scissor halves instead of a proper one, one bedside light not working as it would have needed an extension cord which wasn’t there and kids size cutlery to give but a few examples. Wie was an ample amount of stains and dust all over the place and dog poo around the property.

8/10 Very good

Property was very quiet and secluded, left in the morning at sunrise so got to see that over the property :)

Beautiful setting. Peaceful and relaxing. Rooms as stated. Only 1/2 hr from Port Fairy so used it as our base to attend the PFFF.

10/10 Exceptional

The property is beautiful and I'm very glad I went. Have never stayed in the area before and it was an easy drive to Port Fairy for the festival. The room was simple which is what I expected but it would have been really nice to have a rug on the floor-hard boards didn't make it feel very cosy. Kettle, toaster etc all provided but cords not long enough to reach power points so had to balance kettle on the sink. A powerboard would have come in handy. Really lovely welcome, left alone and very safe and quiet. Beautiful surrounds. Thanks.

The place had all what was needed. It felt like it had not been used for a while, it was quite dusty; lucky we don’t mind spiders.

4/10 Fair

My partner and I stay at Quamby Homestead on Jan 30 to 31st and to say we were disappointed is an understatement. Firstly, the car park is too far away from the rooms and we find it dangerous especially at night time due to lack of lighting. It says free wifi, that's great if you can connect to it. We couldn't connect to the free wifi or even use our own mobile data due to interference from the roofing. We had to walk out of our room to get a 3G connection. There's no communicaton from the onwers upon arrival, no greeting, nothing unless you email them. We didn't approach the homestead due to the dogs on the property. Even we went up to the homestead they just barked and carried on. No servicing of rooms on a daily basis. We went out and came back to find our room hadn't been serviced. No bed made, no fresh towels or toiletries etc. Really disappointing! Lots of cobwebs that need to be cleaned off verandah roof. Other than the grounds being absolutely beautiful we just found the service dismal. If you offered breakfast and serviced the rooms on a daily basis it would make a big difference. For the price we paid we expected more! We certainly won't be back!
