A LOVELY FRIENDLYPLACE TO HANG OUT
Although this property was in the middle of the town, the rooms which you stay in are hidden on the back of the property. It felt like a nature retreat, and you would never know you were in the centre of town.
A very private and quiet setting - so particularly great for a group of friends. We travel around country Australia a lot and sometimes get a bit tired of staying in overpriced places where no-one really goes that little extra distance to make your stay a bit special - this is most definitely not one of those places. Dog friendly too - so all up, we and the dogs had a great weekend.
HOME AWAY FROM HOME
I recently stayed for two nights while in the process of moving from St. Arnaud to interstate. It was an absolute haven, a home away from home. Yes, it's dated but in a charming retro 70's way with yellow & brown bathroom tiles and brick walls and a wood ceiling. It was warm on a succession of freezing cold days, and the bed was the most comfortable I have ever slept in, in a motel. I would highly recommend this quiet, inexpensive, hidden gem.
IDEAL SHORT STAY STOPPER
Located at the rear of an old hotel, La Cochon Rose is quiet and located a short distance from the centre of town. The décor is dated, but the comfort is excellent. There is an excellent bed, a table and chairs, crockery and cutlery, microwave, kettle and toaster. Good instant coffee and good tea bags, plus cafe latte sachets are supplied. We arrived back late to find the heater on, thank you.
