5/5 Excellent

Great stay!
Beautiful little spot for us and the dog. Quite a few barking dogs, but they didn't bother us

5/5 Excellent

Very friendly owner, nice comfy pet-friendly cottage
Lynne is very friendly, and the cottage is very nice and comfy. We love the front yard which is so big for our puppy to run around. Allendale East is also an easy drive to Mount Gambier, as well as a Mount Schank which is definitely worth a visit.

4/5 Good

It is unfortunate that we could not stay longer
The property was lovely and clean. Lynne was very attentive. She gave us additional bedding, although we arrived after 9:00 at night. The yard was nice and secure for the dogs. Will stay there again.

4/5 Good

Great place
Everything was great, very homely and our little dog was happy there couldn't ask for more.

4/5 Good

Accommodation was perfect!
Lynne was very welcoming, we had everything we required, the dogs enjoyed their stay! The enclosed run behind the unit is a fabulous idea.
