This was an overnight stay after disembarking from the Spirit of Tasmania. I had difficulty checking in as the ferry was late and reception closed. Signs on the reception door directing you to the main bar did not have any directions. It was dark and all doors were locked, eventually a lone traveller assisted me. This was the only negative....

Just arrived in Tassie, I felt like catching the boat back on the same night. We had a booking for 2 adults and 1 child, arrived late and after tracking down staff we found that we had no booking. This was despite the confirmation in my hand. I had booked on line and also spoken directly to the accomodation office... More

Reception is at a different location, and you're only notified of this after a thorough search of the cottages. The room was spacious and warm. The kitchenette is small and only contains minimal features. BBQ outside. Bed too small by modern standards. Free laundry facilities were great.

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
