We stayed here for 2 nights. The cottage was very comfortable and clean. The basic amenities like milk, tea bags, coffee, sugar, shampoo, soap etc were provided. The linen and towels were clean and fresh. One can take dvds from the reception. We spotted a wombat, kangaroos and a deer in the property. Mr. Bill's horse was quite a attraction...

Wonderful weekend getaway. Great option for families who want easy access to Mount Buller without paying too much for accommodation. Peaceful and cosy lodge with lots to do for young children. Will most definitely come again.

Easy check in and the chalet was gorgeous, everything we needed for a relaxing couple of days - the view was breathtaking. Sitting by the woodfire with a few drinks, sitting in the spa with a few drinks lol what more could you ask for-area was very picturesque. Also, had a wonderful meal at a local restaurant in Jamieson. Overall...

Wonderful weekend getaway over the long Easter break :-) Beautiful views, Cosy lodge, Spa, Balcony with Million dollar views. Poul & Christine lovely owners who made us feel very welcome. Lack of either Optus or Vodafone mobile coverage a pain... But seemed to affect the whole bloody High Country so never mind! LOL

It was a last minute decision to go to Mansfield over the cup day long weekend. What a pleasant surprise ! We really did not expect this place to be so nice. The owner, Poul was very helpful and very gentle to meet all our needs. The property is large and clean. The setting on the valley is breathtaking. There...

I'll start off by saying two of the previous reviewers, Africasearch and Michael Z must have turned up the wrong driveway as both their reviews are in complete contrast to mine and everyone else. The chalet I was in was both spotlessly clean and had everything you could possibly need for a four day stay which I had, the views...

Was so excited to stay here. Unfortunately my partner and i ended up having our time here ruined. Arrived late friday, cooked and didn't get a chance to test anything else as we were getting up very early to head to the snow. The next night after skiing all day all i wanted to do was have a spa.

Unfortunately this guest was not a happy camper which wasn't made better by the hot water situation. Unfortunately the guests did not come to reception to inform us of the situation until they were leaving when it was too late to fix the problem .

One of the best places I have stayed in a long time for the price. Christine and Poul who own The Black Sparrow, are obviously 2 very hard working people who keep the place in tiptop condition for our enjoyment. They were lovely people who gave us a warm welcome when we got there, they could not do enough for...

I stayed here last year for my snow trip. It was a bit further from the snowfields than other places, but the price was reasonable enough to give it a go. The customer service was great. They even turned on the heating before we arrived back from Mt Buller. It's the little things that make a place great, and once...
