“Very cute & lovely owners”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2011

Beautiful little cottage in picturesque Ross. Owner Sue was more than accommodating and happy with any requests, made us feel very welcome. If taking small children be aware there is a wood-burning stove with no guard. Good stop between Hobart & Launceston.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2011

Stayed here on a Sunday night in July, having booked on the previous Friday morning. Unfortunately, there had been some kind of confusion and the booking had been overlooked. Although the owner was apologetic over the phone, it didn't help the situation. We arrived at around 6pm, and the cottage was freezing cold, with no kindling for the open fire, and only two small heaters to warm the entire cottage. As directed by the owner, we turned on both heaters and headed out to the local hotel for dinner (which was excellent), but on our return the place was still too cold to sit and relax. We tried to light the fire with the large logs and firelighters available, but with no kindling (and no evidence of any outside) it was impossible. Really disappointed as the idea of a roaring open fire on a frosty Tassie night had been our main reason for booking this place. There was an electric blanket on the bed which helped, but somehow it wasn't quite the same. The cottage itself was quaint, clean and comfortable enough, with port and a few mint chocolates provided, but unfortunately it was difficult to focus on the smaller touches when our noses were freezing off. Not the evening we'd envisaged.
