Alice's Cottages were a highlight of our recent trip to Tasmania. The owners are super friendly and helpful and the only hiccup was a problem with wifi access only working in the kitchen. It definitely did not change our opinion of the cottages. We stayed in the Welsh cottage and found it very comfortable. The fireplace makes it very cosy... More

My hubby suprised me with a night away for our anniversary. We stayed in the Irish Cottage. So beautliful inside and out. The owners went above and beyond for us, including a bottle of Janz! and flowers scattered on the bed... breakfast was plentiful and the port delicious, newspaper on the doorstep in the morning. All the comforts of home.... More

This was our first stop & accommodation on our honeymoon. We stayed in the French Boudoir & it was gorgeous. Louise was extremely friendly & we loved every part of it. Would recommend these cute cottages

This was our last stop on a 2 week holiday to Tasmania and, without a doubt, this was the perfect place to wrap up our trip. I’ve never been a fan on themed things but the pictures looked fun so we decided to try something different, and I’m so glad we did. The rooms are so well done that the... More

A delightful getaway. Stayed in the Irish cottage, was much more than I expected. Spa, 4 poster bed, open fire, continental breakie, tassie toiletries, newspaper and beverages, tea, coffee, port.........and my little doggies could stay too!! Very private and quiet though close to town. Owners were chatty and pleasant, even their cats popped by to say hi! A wonderful experience... More

Cosey, clean, wood fire plus heater. Value for money and great customer service. The complimentary chocolates and port.... awesome! Walking distane to Cataract Gorge and town centre. Breakfast hamper included local tassie yogurt cheese and condiments. A great experience all round.

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
