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

Our family of three stayed in the Albatross cottage for 1 night. We wanted to stay longer but we weren't able to get more than 1 night of accom- due to booking so late and the fact that it was Easter.

Thank you for your review and the time taken to post it. The area is very special and we are lucky to have the position that we do as the views are spectacular I started by holidaying in Binalong Bay and then moved here to live. Most people are drawn back to the Bay of Fires time and time again.... More

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

We have just thoroughly enjoyed 2 nights with our family of 4 in Albatross. Cottage was very comfortable with great beds. Very nice linen and more towels and amenities than we could use. Excellent facilities with washing machine, dishwasher etc. Fabulous views of a very beautiful part of Tassie. Although an older style cottage we really enjoyed it and recommend.... More

Spent a night in the Albatross cottage on our travels up the coast. The view is the most striking asset of the character cottages, it cannot be faulted. Luckily we had a great afternoon and following morning to soak it all in. I even tempted fate and went in the beach, Tassie water is not that warm in March. The... More

We recently stayed at Albatross and although the cottage was an older style cottage it was presented well and had great views particularly from the large balcony. The wood fire BBQ we found great to use at the sheltered back , this made up for the lack of an oven which would have been useful. The café below was great... More

We have stayed here a few times now and we love it! I look forward to getting here so that I can take in the amazing view from the verandah with a coffee or glass of wine. The cottages have all of the basics to cater for yourself and the cafe is a few steps away. Comfortable living spaces with... More

We stayed in Dotril Cottage for four nights and loved every minute of our time in Binalong Bay and neighbouring areas. The view from the cottage is fantastic, the beaches gorgeous, the bed was very comfortable and everything you need is provided. WiFi is an additional cost if you want/need it. I had read the reviews saying that the Reception... More

We stayed in Kingfisher cottage for 5 nights. Everything was clean and well maintained, and the cottage contained everything we needed. The view from Kingfisher was not as far-reaching as from the cottages higher up, but we didn't have the up-hill climb up the driveway, so that made up for it! Our view was lovely - looking over the sparkling... More

We stayed at Dotril. The venue requires a two-night minimum stay in Summer. However, the owners were flexible when we contacted them seeking a single night booking. Dotril is a cosy cottage with stunning, uninterrupted beach views. All of the basic amenities were provided and the cottage has heating available for cooler evenings. The rooms are simply furnished but adequate... More
