For the price of a cheap hotel room you get a two bedroom cottage. The accommodation is spotlessly clean and equipped with everything you could want for a short stay. The cottages are located on the highway about 10 km north of Port Arthur. There was no traffic noise at night (actually no traffic). Kathy and Werner are wonderful hosts:... More

It was just an overnight stay while in Port Arthur. It is located in a very pretty place not far from the major attractions, bear in mind we had a car. The bedroom and the bathroom were very clean, I actually think it was the cleanest place we stayed while in Tassie.

Fabulous option for family of 5- 2 rooms next door to each other & excellent value for money! Rooms had everything needed as well as a few additional items often overlooked such as toilet spray, cotton buds & tissues! The basic kitchen also very handy. Overall very good stay in a quiet & comfortable room.

Spacious and clean unit with full amenities and access to a barbecue. 12kms from Port Arthur. Good value for family of four. Bring your food provisions as we could not find a general store. Make sure you visit Waterfall Bay, the Arch, Blowhole and the Devils Kitchen nearby. Thanks for the vote if you found this review helpful.

We just returned from Tasmania and our staying at the Masons Cottages was instrumental in our enjoyable visit to Taranna National Park. The location is perfect for a 2 to 3 day visit and the price was fantastic for what you receive. With full kitchen and comfortable room we felt right at home and the hospitality was top shelf.

Well after our dramas at Lufra Motel and Apartments, I'm so glad I came the extra 10 mins up the road. Masons Cottages are a perfect little spot for a night, or a few nights stay. We rang sort of last minute and room was available and for $105 it was perfect. Neat rooms and fully self contained, small mini... More

On arrival here and going to reception. The Lady at the front desk is pretty full on, yes she goes above and beyond by walking you to your cottage & showing you around , then sort of hung around. This did make us feel very uncomfortable. Some people may like this though. As for the cottage it is quite large... More

We chanced upon this place and so glad we found it. The owners are really friendly and have a lovely dog. We stayed in the family cottage which was really comfortable and had a full kitchen and stove/oven. The beds were comfy and the heater kept the place warm. Its a short drive to Port Arthur and other walks which... More

Clean charming well supplied good customer service. Good literature brochure provided. Stocked with little extras, spacious, nice aspect. Opposite a lake. Close to the Devil's Kitchen, and 10 minutes by car from Port Arthur. Penguin watching on the beach close by.. very relaxing just like home.
