    Wilton Cottage was warm and had a cosy feel, especially on the cold southerly windy nights. It was very close to the bus stop which was a bonus as we used the public transport system daily to travel into the city and back. The beds were comfortable and there were also lots of spare blankets. It was lovely to be surrounded by the Wilton bush and to hear the morning and evening birdsongs.

  • The house was clean, beds were very comfortable

    The house was clean, beds were very comfortable. Heating was difficult as some heaters not working but the owner offered extra heaters. No electric blankets so take hot water bottles. HWC must be small as it only was enough for 2 showers. Internet was sort of off and on - maybe they have a daily limit? Clean sheets were suppose to be provided but the main bed were not . Owner asked the cleaners and they said they changed them but I doubt that. Very glad to have the car park space.

    Owner/manager responds:

    We dispute this information. I think this is a bit rude, to accuse our trusted cleaners of lying. I explained to this person that we didn't iron our sheets, and that they were always washed between tenants.

    Great place to stay - very well looked after, clean and tidy with a great location and off-street parking.

    Very handy to town. Good off street parking for car. Nice to be up in the bush. Quiet area.

    The location is central with a busstop 100m from the front door. The accommodation was superb, extremely comfortable and waking up to the sounds of the local birds was magnificent as we are great bird lovers and were able to identify some of the indigenous birds with our brother-in-laws' help (He is a local) Beds are comfy and there is a good supply of hot water. I would recommend this property highly, but not for younger children as the house is on 3 levels with plenty of steps.
