Fantastic place to stay. Affordable and very clean and beautifully kept gardens. Would not hesitate to recommend to people to stay and have already done so. The whole experience from check in and the restaurant was great. Well done!!! K & M Sneddon

This is an excellent little apartment, clean and tidy, set in a lovely courtyard, very pleasant but with a few little problems. The kitchen is probably the biggest let down to an otherwise great place. There is no stove or cooktop, a serious lack of utensils and no exhaust fan in the kitchenette area. Don't expect to be able to... More

This is a small motel now owned by the bigger resort. The room was spacious, comfortable and very clean. There was everything you need for a self contained unit. At $120 a night we thought this was good value. Very close to the beach (one street back) and opposite the shops.

We were confused when we arrived here. We unloaded our baggage, found eventually the well hidden reception, only to find a notice telling us to go a couple of hundred metres to the resort hotel. It transpired that the owners had sold and recently left. This meant that when the wifi stopped working during our two night stay, reception at... More

Stayed here on business only for the night. Great cottage, very clean and well set up. Close to the pub and supermarket. Small kitchette, well appointed. Very clean and extremely tidy. Private setting but walls are thin.

We have just spent two nights at Shearwater Cottages and cannot find a fault with this little gem other than quite a firm bed, but thats a personal choice and there is no air conditioning. It has been very warm in Tasmania recently and a pedistal fan was put in the room, thats probably more comfortable than air con anyway.... More

We stayed in one of the cottages for 2 nights in January. The accommodation is located close to the main shopping area and not too far from the beach. The cottages are set back from the road. There are 6 cottages and are very well maintained by the owners, who are helpful and friendly. Our room was large with a... More

Arrived off the ferry and found Shearwater Cottages easy and owners upon arrival were fantastic. Beautiful studio with everything you could possibly need or want. Only regret was we could only stay one night. If we ever get back to Tassie we will certainly stay longer. Thanks for everything

Delightful, very clean and tidy, studio apartment, with double, 2 singles and sofa bed, could have slept 6 in comfort, though only two of us. Small manicured garden, strategically set out so you don't notice the neighbours. BBQ area with all the sauces and extras you might need. On site parking, with very short walk to shops, country club and... More

We stayed at the Cottages after Christmas on the last leg of our Tasmanian Christmas break and after the usual and unexpected stresses of family Christmas, this was a wonderful, restful haven, even if only for one night. The studio room we stayed in was well equipped with everything you could need and would normally have at home. Lovely decor,... More
