“A weekend to remember”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

A beautiful suite with the most wonderful views and truly lovely hosts. Arrived as guests and left feeling as though we had met two wonderful friends. Would give up a date with Tom Cruise for Bronwyns delicious lamb roast. Try it do. Thankyou for the highlight of our trip, Bronwyn and Ross. Would recommend to everyone.

Thank you both for a wonderful review. I think you are right the Lamb will be our signature dish just changing the salads with the seasons. Can't wait to see you both on your return journey to Tasmania.

Thankyou Bronwyn & Ross for making our stay so memorable. We felt welcomed from the moment we arrived. The views were beautiful overlooking the cove and marina. The room was spotless and the underfloor heating was a unique experience. Our 7 year old didn't want to leave, he loved the big sofa bed and being able to shower himself with the wall mounted shampoo & conditioner dispenser. Our breakfasts were delicious with fresh produce and our evening lamb roast so tender. We would recommend a relaxing stay here and would certainly visit again. Horne Family - Brisbane

Thanks Bronwyn and Ross great hospitality. Couldn't fault anything best place we have stayed in a long time. The rooms are huge and well appointed with views over the bay and out to Bruny Island. A private balcony looked out over the marina. The food was amazing!

We recently spent two nights at The Cove. Our room was spacious and well-appointed with a fantastic large bathroom and private balcony. The view was wonderful looking across to the all the boats in the harbour. The building was fresh and modern with nice features like under floor heating and large windows to make the most of the view.

We found Bronwyn to be such a charming host - warm, helpful and welcoming. Nothing was a bother. Breakfasts were terrific - with cold choices (including a fabulous dried fruit compote that was amazing) plus a cooked breakfast made to order and served in the dining/lounge room looking out to the harbour. Was a very relaxing way to start the day. Bronwyn readily provided vegetarian options for me for breakfast and a lovely dinner. Only three rooms so personalised, friendly attention and lovely Lucy the cute little dog provided a homely touch. I would happily pay a return visit to The Cove.

We went to Tasmania for our babymoon and stayed at the cove Kettering for two days. The place was beautiful and the rooms were warm and welcoming. Our host was an amazing chef and the best part of our stay was the home made food which included the delicious chocolate truffles every morning. There was also a common room with fire place where you could just relax with a book in your hand. The view from our room was also magnificent. I would surely recommend this place for all couples.
