Gorgeous view from our ocean suite. Staff very friendly and wonderful restaurant. Only downfall was the water pressure in the shower was very low! You can see the Hazards from the room, a gorgeous backdrop to your holiday. The bed was extremely comfortable, the heating was great.

My friend and I only ate here we didn't stay here. Restaurant is only open at night. But it is great food. Slightly expensive but is to be expected. The restaurant itself doesn't have amazing vibes for night time as you can't see the views, but the food alone was worth it. Best hotel and restaurant within the region.

The resort was architecturally designed to blend into the stunning landscape. Our large well-equipped suite had a classic modern feel and was decorated in soothing earth tones. The room even had radiant floor heating. However, the best part was the expansive view of Coles Bay through the glass patio doors and the shimmering shoreline just a few steps away. We... More

Looking for accommodation in Freycinet/Coles Bay area Edge of the Bay was chosen on the off chance that accommodation would be available. Whilst the look of the suites from the outside was initially uninspiring that quickly changed with an inspection inside. The suites are close to the waters edge, with easy access to magnificent photo opportunities. Dinner in the restaurant... More

We stayed after Easter for 3 nights in a cottage and had a wonderful time. The cottages are older but ours was nicely furnished with lovely comfy leather chairs, it was was very well equipped and extremely clean throughout but the best part was the magnificent view of The Hazards from the living and bedroom windows! It's so quiet, private... More

4 adults and 2 kids were superbly accommodated for 6 nights over Easter. Dinner meals in the restaurant were top notch, although we had a bbq one night too at the cottage. Staff are excellent and the quality of the maintenance and cleaning is first-rate. Absolute beach frontage was a treat for the Melbourne visitors, along with the feeling that... More

We spent another 5 nights at The Edge of the Bay in early March. As is our practice we stayed in one of the cottages. We came away refreshed and relaxed. We first discovered this wonderful place way back in early 2004 and this was our 15th visit. We generally come down twice a year and stay 5 or 6... More

We stayed for 2 days. Everything was very nice: Location - excellent, with a beautiful view from our bungalow. Very quiet as well, and close to the reception area. No problem to park our car not far from our bungalow. The park for walks are very close by car. I spend long hours walking along the various paths to see... More

We stayed a night here. The location is nice and the cabins are in the middle of nowhere. However they are very dated ( 80's?) and nothing has happened much since then . If it were a cheap option fair enough but we thought it was expensive for a basic cabin. There are no lights near the cabins so coming... More
