“Sweet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2012

Kikis room. all the good reviews are correct, however this is a popular place for a small town and they management is quite busy. Checked in very late after a long trip to wineglass bay and they were okay with that. Australia has some of the worst and overpriced places & service in the world but this one is fine. Breakfast was memorable! Stars at night are awesome. I didn't visit during peak hot summer to Tasmania so I can't say what this place would be like during extreme weather but there are heaters so winter should be ok. キキ好きな人じゃなくても楽しいよ!

Room Tip: キキだよ、やっぱり! you can see the stars while you sleep

We stayed in the Apricot room it was very cosy and warm. We were greeted by the owner who made us feel very welcomed. Down stairs in the lounge area we had a fire ready for us and some yummy treats with tea, coffee, wine, and port available for us to help ourslves too. The room had tea and coffee facilities and a bar fridge. In the morning we were giving a wonderful breakfast which consisted of tea, coffee, juice, yohgurt, fruit, toast, but if that wasnt enough we were then given freshly cooked crossiants, sourdough bread and 3 different danishes,dont worry if you cant finish it all they will pack it for you to take with you. Very friendly would recommend and would stay again .thankyou for a pleasant stay.

Obviously old and a little tired, this accommodation on the pretty main street of Ross, was none-the-less comfortable and spacious. We were made to feel very welcome, and could not resist the famous vanilla slice. Loved the cosy sitting room with log fire, and delicious breakfast from the bakery oven. It has a unique charm!

Room Tip: We were next to the bakery, where there are three rooms, in the inn. All seemed fine, though the wa...

Walking past the bakery the sign on the window said "World's best vanilla slice" - we had no choice but to go in and try one. We were not disappointed, it tasted fantastic! The bakery was clean, busy and definitely worth a visit.

Room Tip: We didn't stay at the Inn we just sampled the food from the bakery.

We were attracted to come because it was the background of the famous Japanese cartoon and we were not disappointed. We did not live in the inn but the bakery itself is a wonderful place to visit. The food is great, the staff are friendly and efficient and their 17th or 18th century maids' look adds special charm to the place. We sat outside under a big tree, feeling so leisured and peaceful. Other than Vanilla Slice, Scallop Pie is another food worth trying.

However, sad to say that the whole property is on sale. Mind you check if there is any change before you go.

We stayed here on a weekend trip to Tassie a few years ago, but this time we were just passing through, so we stopped at the bakery with the kids, who happened to be very indecisive on this occasion! The staff were very patient with them, and the service was great. I was a little cynical of their claim to have the "World's Greatest Vanilla Slice", but it did look great, so I gave it a go and wasn't disappointed... I can't confirm that it's the world's greatest, but I look forward to seeking a better one!

We have just checked out & we LOVED it. The cottage has a very 'homely' feel and contained everything that we needed. We loved the huge kitchen table!

I am one of those people who reads reviews but rarely writes them! In this instance I feel I have to as after reading the last cottage review, I nearly didn;t bother staying here. I am very glad that we went ahead and stayed. The price was definately worth it. We paid under $200 for four of us.
The place was clean, lights were fine, the couch comfortable, the lounge room big enough for all of us, the lawn was mowed, the ivy has taken over the side garden a bit,but that didn't bother us. We also didn't mind the decor, we found it homely and very comfortable. Its an old cottage, not a standard modern building! As for having to collect our breaky, it is a minutes walk and we got to see it cooking! Can't get any fresher than that. I am also certain that if required one if the staff would have delivered it for us.....they were very friendly and helpful

Now to my review!
We were checked in at the bakery by the friendly staff who gave us our milk and a plate of bakery goodies. They then directed us to the cottage. About a minutes walk from the main Inn. We had an enjoyabe evening and slept very comfortably. In the morning we leisurely strolled down the tree lined street to the bakery to collect our much anticipated breakfast basket. Looking through the visitors book, breakfast was nearly always mentioned.
We were not disappointed. It was WONDERFUL. I don;'t know of any other accommodation where you can get croissants, cakes & bread straight out of the oven. We even poked our heads into the oven & saw our loaf baking directly on the bricks. It is a HUGE old woodfired oven. Be sure to take a look.
Ross itself is a lovley historic town with many beautiful sandstone buildings & of course the old bridge with its carvings. There are also quite few antique shops which are definately worth a look.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Ross and hope to return soon.
