I enjoyed our time there, would recommend it to others and would stay there again. We had great views of the water and enjoyed watching boats coming and going. It's a place to be if you want to unwind and relax.

Smugglers Rest was in a awesome spot but we only stayed one night and visiting in winter in July a lot of attractions were closed. On arrival we were welcomed to a very comfortable two bedroom room, very warm and cozy as well as a queen size that just wrapped around you giving you a wonderful nights sleep. Beds and... More

We had a wonderful few days at Dover staying at Smugglers Rest and used it as our base for seeing Southern Tasmania. We arrived to a spotlessly clean and warm unit after a long day's travel. We loved the spectacular view and the peace of the whole area. We certainly had a Chux cloth and plenty of toilet paper and... More

Smugglers Rest was a great anchor point from which to launch our three day adventure in Southenmost Tasmania. So peaceful, with great views, and a wonderful hosts. Our apartment was as comfy and cosy as they come, but not so well appointed. We had almost everything we needed - except a few of the little things, like enough toilet paper... More

Smugglers Rest is comfortable, clean and affordable. Will certainly stay there on my next visit to Dover. Great water views and location. Walk to small shopping centre and fishing jetty. Staff were super friendly and helpful. Thanks.

Dover is a real find if you're looking for a place to shake off those city blues and stresses, a place where a gentle stroll down to the waters edge, or along the Jetty to smell the gentle aroma of the sea, or hear the lapping of the waters edge, Enough is never enough in this place, so much so...

Dover is a very quiet pretty spot to stop and unwind and just enjoy nature. The Bay is very lovely and there are several trial to walk with stunning views all along the way. Smugglers Rest is perfectly situated for stunning water views, and is perfectly comfortable and affordable, in fact I have to say it had the most comfortable... More

Smugglers Rest is an ideal location to explore this area. The unit was spotless and well-equipped, with beautiful views of the tranquil bay, and a pleasant rear garden to relax in. Dover is a small bayside town with a supermarket and several eateries. We used it as a base to visit the Tahune Airwalk,, Hastings Caves and thermal pool, and... More

Dover is a perfect location to enjoy the area. With the Tahune airwalk a highlight. My only regret was that we couldnt stay longer. The large unit was kid friendly, comfortable, clean and cosy, cost affective and casual.
