My partner and I just stayed here for two nights and do not believe we got our money’s worth ($140 per night). On arrival we were quite impressed as the heater has been turned on for us and the layout of the studio (the kitchenette, bathroom, king size bed and spa) was perfect for our little getaway. Sadly the positives... More

Stayed one night after visiting Pt Arthur. Number 3 had beautiful timber paneling throughout and was very clean. Enjoyed the spa bath in the main room. Great value, well appointed and location. Would stay there again. For longer stays would like a bigger TV and would take supplies as eateries around there are minimal as is shopping. Happy customers though.

Beautiful comfy beds, clean and great location. Spa in the main living room/bedroom I thought was a little odd at first but then being able to watch a movie in the bath was so great! Felt very homely with the free range chickens roaming around. Very good value, we will definitely return!

Perfect country accommodation for those who are visiting the Port Arthur region. Well equipped to self cater and very clean. Hosts are very friendly and helpful. The chooks (chickens) are very welcoming as well!

These are modern bright and well appointed cabins, heater was on when we arrived but that's where the service stopped. The room was not clean clean including a large amount of various animal scat on the doorstep. No soap to be found. Beware that depending on the time of year there may be very few dinning options in this part... More

very nice area near the water, was very clean and modern, the hostes were helpful, near to Port Author, boat tours and places to dine and many other places to visit, we had a great time and would recommend to anyone.

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.
