A nice private group of cottages. We had the largest one with 4 adults sharing. It had everything you would need and the staff make such a fuss over you and your needs. Absolutely spotless clean. The only problem is when the staff clean or work in the area they talk non stop so we were often woken up by... More

We actually stayed at the resort. The reviews tell you that the resort is in need of refurbishing. We were happy with our room. It was clean and bright and has a little balcony looking out over the golf course. The kitchen was great and with shops nearby we were able to eat quite cheaply. We didn't use the facilities...

Very nice studio rooms - actually very spacious for a studio, with lounge and dining area and basic cooking facilities. 100mtrs to restaurants, supermarket, tavern and a host of other shops. 5 min walk to the beach. Only down side was really really uncomfortable bed (we both got a sore back) and tiny television. The beds would stop me coming... More

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
