Alice's cottages are well maintained, clean, beautiful Tasmania products used in the bathroom and friendly staff. The bed and linen very comfortable and I found that I had a great nights sleep, as I am someone that doesn't generally sleep well when I travel. The themed rooms are a personal taste, if you like the standard hotel experience this place... More

I took my husband away for our 25th wedding anniversary. I chose Alices's cottages for the simple fact of an open fire place as we live in QLD and don't get to enjoy the romance of an open fire that was the attraction for me. Once we arrived it became clear that it was more than what we expected. It... More

We stayed at Camelot, a funny room that's i haven't stayed before. Spacious room with separate sitting room, bedroom and washroom. The couples of the owners are very nice to introduce where should we go and eat around. Well equipped kitchen though we haven't used during our staying. Funny masks, clothes, swords for us to use/wear to take photos. One... More

This place was just not our cup of tea. I can't believe the reviews. We stayed in the boudoir it was soooo very tacky ! And dated. Ok the hosts are great and a real nice couple. But the room is full of crap in a poor attempt to theme it. It's old and a butt ugly dirty old pink... More

Delightful, quaint, reminiscent, cosy, welcoming...just a few words to describe alice's cottages. We have thoroughly enjoyed our 2 nights and certainly recommend this B&B. We were given very generous breakfast provisions, as well as being left some lovely port and chocolate nibbles to enjoy in front of the fireplace should we choose. The location is quiet, close to everything including... More

We stayed 3 nights in Aphrodites and highly recommend this place. It was peaceful and quite. Beds were soft and comfy. Huge bathroom. Kitchen was fully equipped with every possible thing one would need in a house and even clingwrap and aluminium foil was supplied. There was nothing to complain about. The owner Louise was extremely friendly so was the... More

The reviews of the rooms and hosts are pretty much spot on. The rooms (we stayed in the English cottage) are very nice and cosy and the hosts hospitable, friendly and very welcoming. I have a grudge though that nearly prevented me from booking at all. We had decided through the trip advisor reviews that it sounded like a nice... More

Thanks for your review. We were embarrassed about how angry you were about the booking process. We were not happy either and have contacted the company that organises our bookings. We have to use them as many people use a third person ( booking company ) to book. This avoids double bookings. Our channel manager explained to us all the... More
