This was our west coast stop on a round-island drive around Tassie. We booked early as we knew it was going to be a weekend, and was not disappointed. The apartment was clean and spacious with a great DVD selection at the reception. Bev was very friendly with good advice on what to do and suggestions for food. The room... More

We stayed here for one night only but we're impressed by how comfortable and clean it was. We noted that if you were staying on the room was well set up for cooking etc. The owners were very friendly and helpful also.

Chick-in was easy and reception provided us with a map and explained difference things around town; where to eat, places to see. Bed was comfortable and facilities clean. Motel is off the main street so quiet and peaceful.

In the pouring rain, late afternoon, we arrived at the Castaway Apartments which was to be our home for the next two nights. On checking in, we met Bev, with the sunny disposition.

We spent four nights at Castaway in adjoining apartments with our son, wife and 1 year old grandson. Our host had suggested this to us at the time of booking and it meant each family had their own space but we came together for meals etc. The apartments are warm, comfortable and roomy with a very well equipped kitchen.

We liked our large but cosy two bedroom apartment with well equipped kitchen and comfortable furnishings. Walkable distance to town and harbour but return involves uphill portion which may be a bit challenging for those who are less mobile but no problem with car. Hosts are friendly and helpful. Good range of complimentary movie DVDs available from office for use... More

Thank you for your review of Castaway Holiday Apartments. Lots of positive and clinical feedback; but we are a little confused by your comments about hotplates and saucepans in the kitchen. The kitchens all have three saucepans, non-stick frypan and cassarole saucepan, plus a full size cooker. Having said that we are pleased you enjoyed your stay with us here... More
