"Many thanks Gail and David for a lovely stay at your delightful B & B. The breakfasts were great. I especially enjoyed the two evenings that I joined your other guests on the upstairs balcony as we enjoyed the wonderful views over the bay. We especially enjoyed the wine that Gail provided as we chatted about our travels etc. Thanks also for picking me up and then dropping me off at the bus stop."

Comfortable bed with electric blankets, amazing spa bath, warm fireplace, a plethora of books and games, great views and very quiet location....
Your hospitality is legendary, breakfast amazing and storytelling most entertaining. It was a truly magnificent experience which we will never forget and we hope to return to this lovely B&B."

"We really enjoyed our stay here and wished we could stay for another night or two. Gail and David were so welcoming and had taken care of everything. Room was so neat and tidy.
We enjoyed the breakfast and most of all I enjoyed taking the photographs from top outdoor space. We will recommend this place all our friends."Dipak & Sheetal, 02 Mar 2015
"We were lucky enough to find this delightful B & B just driving around looking for accommodation, so had no expectations. Gail and David made us feel so comfortable and "at home" it was like staying with friends. The cottage is tastefully decorated and perfect for relaxing and admiring the view. We have had some wonderful travel experiences both in Australia and overseas and would have to say this delightful house with its panoramic views is right up there. If we ever travel to that area again wouldn't think of staying anywhere else.
Thanks, Kaye and Nev

"Thank you, Gail and David for a very relaxing stay in your beautiful B&B. You both are excellent hosts, making us both feel very at home. The breakfast was outstanding, and kept us going until we arrived in Sydney. We will be back, especially if P&O do cruises there next year! Thank you once again,
Veronica & Fred"

"“Scintillating views and sumptuous breakfasts!”
I stumbled upon Cocora Cottage late one evening, a weary traveller, having always wanted to visit beautiful Eden. I was immediately greeted by the charming hosts David and Gail, who made me feel so welcome and at home instantly. A glass of red by a roaring fire and I had already booked to stay another night. The home is a tastefully decorated heritage listed period home set in beautiful cottage gardens close to everything . The bedroom with spa is delightful and every effort has been made for the comfort of the guests. Extremely well appointed. Lovely linens, towels and chocolate by your bedside.
The view from the second living room and patio is to die for. I was astounded by the beauty of Twofold Bay and so happy to see dolphins play happily before my eyes as I savoured my morning coffee.
Breakfast comes with a wide variety of choices and Gail is an excellent chef, it was delicious . Dave politely serves your breakfast and provides a wealth of information on the area ......Gail's date loaf for afternoon tea a treat. Every effort and beyond is made for guests to feel at home and comfortable. An absolute delight and five star bed and breakfast.......thank you so much Gail and David."

Thank you thank you thank you to Gail & David for offering such a lovely place to relax and enjoy. They are also full of information about the area and day trip suggestions.
We felt at home as soon as we arrived at the front door. The view room, although on the smallish side was fabulous and had everything we needed plus those extra little touches were very stylish. Now, to talk about the breakfast. OMG! Beautifully presented and so generous and satisfying. The view upstairs is to die for. We will definitely be back. Gail & David are so generous snd friendly and always had time for a chat but never in the way. Perfect hosts. Love love love this B & B. We'll be back as soon as we can manage it."

"My wife and I spent one night at the B&B on our drive down to The Great Ocean Drive. We were welcomed by the owners, Gail and David, and we joined them for a glass of wine in the upstairs parlor with it's stunning views of the bay. Unfortunately we were late for observing whales, but when they're about, it must be difficult to look away from the Bay. In the two weeks we've spent in Australia, this is, by far, the most comfortable and enjoyable place we've stayed, and only wish we were staying longer than one night. We had a spacious and comfortable room and the bath came with all the needed supplies, even shaving creme. The downstairs parlor, like the upstairs parlor, had biscuits, port, tea and coffee for snacking. The breakfast the next morning, again, the best we've had since coming to Australia. Plenty of choices, very well prepared, and, offered in the upstairs parlor with the ocean view. We hated to leave. Gail and David are a very interesting, well traveled, couple, having hiked in Nepal, and climbed Kilimanjaro in Tanzania and Mt. Kinabula, the highest peak in Malaysia. Additionally, they are one of the few people we've met who have actually taken a Greyhound Bus across the United States, and back again. This was a memorable stay for us in a beautiful and well situated B&B. I should mention that there's wifi available and there's no charge, unlike some of the larger chains in Australia.
Stayed January 2014"Jim, 16 Mar 2014
"My husband and I were warmly welcomed by our hosts with a glass of wine and an ice cold beer - after a very long and hot drive from Sydney. The B&B is beautifully situated with magnificent views. Breakfast was delicious and we cannot wait to visit again when we return to Australia.
Stayed December 2013"

"Do yourself a favor and stay at what I regard as one of the Best Bed & Breakfasts I have ever had the pleasure of staying at. The property is historic yet made extremely comfortable with modern amenities. The view from the dining room is magic and the food is fantastic. Gail and David were very helpful and went out of their way to make our stay exjoyable. All this for a very reasonable price. Be sure you put it on your must visit list!!!"

"Cocora Cottage is a beautiful old house overlooking the wharf. The rooms are really comfortable and Gail and David are wonderful hosts. They provided tea and coffee with some wonderful ginger cake in the guest lounge, and then invited us to have a drink on the upper terrace before we set off for our evening meal in the town. Breakfast the following morning was excellent with lots of home made jams, pears poached in marmalade (delicious) and perfectly poached eggs. We would definitely recommend this B & B."
