This cottage was an excellent choice for us. We were two couples travelling together. We stayed for 5 nights. From the cosy welcome (lights on, music playing), the lovely bed linen and thick fluffy… More
Many thanks for taking the time to write a fantastic review of Emaroo Argent.
Glad you like the added touches we put in. Nothing better than a fluffy towel that is big enough to wrap around you and then be able to put on a cosy bathrobe.
We have set up Emaroo Argent so it is suitable for couples and also families - hence the toys, cot, pram etc in the third bedroom.
The combustion fire in the lounge is also welcomed by guests in the winter time even though we have reverse cycle air conditioning.
Emaroo Argent is very central to everything so if you want to walk to get groceries or have dinner at one of the restaurants its all close handy.
Hope you got to see most of the attractions that you wanted to in the 5 days you were there and hope you have good memories of your trip to Broken Hill.
Once again appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with others.

Couldn't have asked for anything more (apart from not being able to work out how to use the coffee machine!).

Thank you for taking the time to write such a great review of Emaroo Argent. Glad you got the chance to use your rail pass and spend some time in Broken Hill.
Emaroo Argent is very central to shops, attractions and restaurants so it makes life easy if you do not have a vehicle. We have a lot of guests stay at our cottages who have travelled by train and find it very convenient.
Pleased that we have converted you to self-contained holiday homes. It is so much nicer to come home after a day of touring and site seeing to a place with plenty of space, kitchen facilities and an outdoor area.
Appreciate your kind words about our cottage. We try our hardest to make sure your stay is as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.
Once again thank you for sharing your thoughts with others on TripAdvisor

From the front entrance, into the delightfully presented cottage, we felt like we had stepped back in time. The beautiful bedrooms were so restful & ensured a good nights sleep, the kitchen was just l… More
We were so pleased when we read your kind comment in our visitors' book and now you have left us this lovely comment on Tripadvisor. Thank you so much Jan! We appreciate your kindness.
It is always good to read what guests think of our cottage as everybody thinks differently about things and to read you enjoyed yourselves makes us think we are providing guests with a happy, comfortable stay, which is always our aim.
Glad you enjoyed sitting out on the verandah while the birds entertained you, and it was very considerate of you to give up your spa because of our water situation. Hopefully BH's water problem will be solved shortly but in the meantime we just all have to be careful.
It was a pleasure to have you as our guests and we do hope you will be able to return some day.
All the Best,

Well Alan it was a 'Journey's End' for you coming all the way from Canberra, and what a lovely title for your review. It sounds as tho it should be the title of a book or poem!
We are just SO grateful for your lovely comments and thank you for taking the time to write them. We are chuffed to hear you enjoyed your stay and settled down for a good holiday in the cottage. That was exactly what we hoped to achieve when we bought the place and set about to give it the 'yesteryear' feel, and from what you say we may be close to our goal.
If you return to BH sometime you may like to look at our other cottage called 'Ella's Place' for a bit of a change.
Have a good lead up to Christmas and we wish you all the best till we see you again.

What a glorious little cottage, we felt at home as soon as we walked in the front door. Everything a travelling family could possibly need. Broken Hill has so much to offer and it was so lovely to ha… More

"An absolutely first class choice for Broken Hill"
We spent four days in fascinating Broken Hill at the beginning of a five week trek through the Outback areas of Australia. We chose this property despite there being a myriad of motels in Broken Hill… More
Thank you for your great review of Emaroo Oxide and glad you enjoyed your stay there.
We have been in touch with the Auto Car Accessory shop across the road about their neon lights flashing all night and they are going to put the lights on a timer now so that they go off in the evening which will hopefully fix the problem of the light coming in. Thank you for bringing that to my attention and hopefully now guests will have a good night sleep.
We have also put something under the door in the bathroom to stop the breeze coming through so that should help as well.
I'm glad you chose our cottage rather than a motel as I think it is much more homely and you have your separate dining and kitchen areas and also an enclosed yard where you can sit out and have a BBQ or a quiet drink after a day of exploring the area.
Emaroo Oxide is very handy and central to everything which is a bonus as you can walk to the shops, restaurants or the pub just down the street.
Once again thank you for sharing your thoughts about Emaroo Oxide and hopefully we will see you back in Broken Hill some time in the future.

Spent 2 days at the cottage and would have like to have spent more time but had to carry on with our trip. It is close to the downtown area (3 minute walk). The cottage was spotless. It is a cozy rent… More
Thank you for taking the time to write such a great review of Emaroo Oxide.
So glad you enjoyed your stay and enjoyed the extra little treats we left for you.
Emaroo Oxide is in a great location as it is close to shops, attractions and easy walking distance to restaurants and pubs.
We have recently renovated this property and put in new furniture, a larger TV and given it a fresh paint.
There is so much to see and do in Broken Hill. People have often commented that they really need a week to see it all.
Glad we were able to sort out the issue with the instructions and appreciate your comments about the cleanliness. I will pass this on to our cleaner as she is very particular and treats the cottages as her own.
Once again thank you and appreciate you sharing your thoughts and review with other people who are looking at where they might stay in Broken Hill.
