JanStayed March 2022
The basics of the house is very good but there were some issues with Bachcare and some maintenance items which hopefully have been dealt with by now.
JoelStayed February 2022
We loved the property, lots of space for a family and good indoor outdoor flow and bbq area. Having sky across two the Chromecast made it great for distracting the kids when they needed a break. Could have been cleaner, long term spider webs above the shower, bbq dirty but these were only minor complaints.

Perfect for our group of 7 clean and plenty of room

We really enjoyed our stay at Wisteria Lodge - it had lots of space, great beds and was warm and comfortable with both a heat pump and wood burner. Cromwell provided a far more economical and reasonable base for skiing for the week.

A great place to stay with good facilities.
KaylaStayed July 2020
We stayed with another family and it was great having seperate lounges with kids. It wasn't ideal that the laundry and all the chemicals were in the kids bunk rooms and there was also a door off the bunk room that wasn't safe for children to enter so we had to block it off with furniture. Bunk room was quite cold, rest of house was fine with heaters and fires on. House wasn't overly clean. Great to have fully fenced yard for kids.toilets were not working well, water was backing up. Wood was supplied for fire which was great. Room with ensuite was really big.
Thank you for your review, Kayla! We're glad to hear you enjoyed the space and layout Wisteria Lodge offers to families. We have taken your comments regarding the bunk room on board and this room has been made unavailable until further notice, while some improvements are made including a lockable cupboard for cleaning materials . We're sorry that the issue with the toilets wasn't raised with our local Holiday Manager during your stay as we would've been happy to resolve this for you on the spot. This hadn't been an issue in the past but has been addressed and fixed now. We have also passed on your comments about the cleaning so that if there were any aspects that may have been missed during the clean prior to your arrival this was addressed too. Hope to see you again soon
AndreaStayed July 2020
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely, spacious home. Plenty of wood was provided for the very efficient wood burner, and we only needed to use an extra heater in the bunk room. The outdoor area is fabulous and the petanque area provided unexpected fun for the family. Home owner was very pleasant and quick to respond to any queries we had.
KatrinStayed February 2020
This property needs some work done. Fireplace was full of ashes, dust, dirt and old bones. Some rooms had a very unpleasant smell to them. The carpet is really old and stained and should be replaced. Otherwise good layout, large house, nice garden. Cromwell itself is lovely!
Thank you for the feedback Katrin; we hope you'd agree that the photos on the listing are a fair representation of this charming, popular Cromwell property. Feedback from guests has always been consistently positive. The fireplace is cleared regularly to ensure it is safe for guests and the house is mandatorily professionally cleaned after guests leave. Our owners regularly use their holiday home themselves and always proudly insist it be maintained and cleaned to a high standard. We absolutely agree the garden is amazing, we just love Cromwell too.
