Binalong Bay is such a beautiful area and these cottage's are perfectly positioned to take in the magnificent views. Our cottage was very clean and well equipped with everything you need for a lovely stay. A quick walk across the road and a long leisurely walk a along the beautiful beach, who couldn't ask for better.

The cottages overlook the picturesque binnalong bay. You couldn't ask for a more stunning location. We wish we arrived earlier in the afternoon to enjoy the view more. Do a shop before you arrive in binnalong bay unless you plan eating out

We have stayed here three times over the years largely because of the location - easy access to the beach at Binalong Bay and unbeatable views across the Bay of Fires. The cottages are comfortable enough and suitable for family needs although quite dated given the price. They provide most basic needs of modern accommodation (including washing machine, hair dryer,... More

I am disappointed that you saw necessary to post these comments. I do understand where this has come from and why. The previous two reviewers stayed in this very same cottage and loved it. They also said how comfortable the beds are. There are two extra dining chairs to use at the table for larger parties. One in the queen... More

We only stayed one night, but was a welcome relief after 10 days of hiking. Great view, great heating. Washing machine facilities with clothesline or clotheshorse for drying were excellent. Shower was hot with good water pressure. Beds were very comfortable. Driveway is very steep!! Moresco restaurant next door was exceptional, followed by a walk on beautiful beach with resident...

We stayed in Dotril, one of the single bedroom cottages with an absolutely fabulous view down the length of Binalong Bay. Very basic accommodation but very clean and welcoming. Everything we needed was there, as well as things we didn't; small kitchen with stove, fridge and dishwasher, TV, extra blanket and pillows, hair dryer. Conveniently located just a few steps...

Stayed in Dotril cottage during our road trip, for 1 night. We booked quite way in advance as we learnt that it isn't easy to get rooms here. The proximity to the beach is a plus point, and there is a small kitchen for you to prepare simple meals. There's allocated car park lot for each cottage and shouldn't be... More

I stayed in burgess cottage as it was closest to the bottom of the hill and across the road from the beach. Very clean, comfortable bed, great views and lots of birds around. No oven but you don't really need one as you have hot plates and a microwave and electric fry pan. Fridge, washing machine and tub inside and... More

Thank you for your review and the time taken to post it.

We stayed here for one night on a recent trip around Tassie, and I would highly recommend it. We stayed in Albatross cottage, which was HUGE and had absolutely everything you'd need. It was so beautiful and quiet, it was so wonderful to fall to sleep listening to the sound of the waves crashing on the beach. While the unit... More
