Disappointing verging on dangerous. Looks smart and modern enough, and, yes, all the basics are there BUT the heater is so high on the wall it was inadequate, as was the tiny TV. It gave a clean impression, but the brown shagpile rug needs a good shake and vacuum. I wasn't at all impressed by the long hair I found... More

We arrived in the evening to a warm and clean room. (The heater had been turned on by the owner for us). Great value for money, everything we needed and more. Comfortable bed, electric blankets, washing machine and dryer. No negatives from us

Decent location, facilities were good with spa. However there is limited food shopping facilities in this area. The tiny tv was hardly sufficient with no dvd's, as this area is not for a raging night out, felt that the facilities did not match and there was no service at all, merely a note stuck to receptions front door.

The cabins here were so lovely and just a short drive from Port Arthur. Very well kept, with a very comfortable bed and we really enjoyed a spa bath after a long day on our feet. The host, Eloise was also lovely and very approachable. Wish we stayed for more than one night.

Stayed here for one night, proximity to port Arthur is good. Place was clean, and had a comfortable bed, somewhat sparsely kitted out, one set of towels, no laundry powder, or spa bubbler available. Nothing in the bar fridge. Would say some extra personal touches and add-ons would go along way

Stayed for 2 nights as these cabins were only 10 - 15 minutes from Port Arthur. In the cabins efficient use of space makes them user friendly and there is plenty of useable space inside the 2 rooms. The bathroom/ laundry had a shower, washing machine and a dryer. The main room housed the big king bed, a spa tub,... More

Mussel Boys is a handful of modern cabins set in sleepy Taranna, about halfway between Port Arthur and Eaglehawk Neck. The cabins have great triangle spas in the room itself and are perfectly set up for couples. The owners are friendly and helpful and very respectful of your privacy. The value for money is just unbeatable for a spa cabin.... More

Me and my other half stayed here for a night and wished we could have stayed a few more nights. We really liked the room and the clever use of space, and were pleased to be able to make use of the washing machine and dryer- although make sure to bring your own washing detergent. Bed was large and comfy... More
