Stayed just one night at Masons Cottages after a late finish at Port Arthur (ghost tour highly recommended by the way) and this accommodation fit our requirements exactly. Our hosts greeted us virtually as we drove up the driveway and were happy to let us check-in several hours early as we were on our way in to Port Arthur. (Of... More

New management had just taken over a few days before we arrived. Yet it was a smooth and friendly check in and cabins were neat and clean. We had cabin #3 which is a two bedroom cabin. Rooms were good size, bathroom good size and a kitchenette. Close to Port Arthur Historic Site which was our main reason for staying... More

An excellent place to stay. Very roomy and comfortable. Helpful and friendly hosts. We'd spent the day at Port Arthur and just had one night at Mason Cottages but if you were in the area for a longer stay this would be ideal. Wifi a little patchy but that didn't concern us.

We stayed one night after walking on the 3 Capes Walk, and wanted to visit the Unzoo in the morning. The unit was neat clean comfortable and had all that we needed, all at a reasonable price. So it was ideal for our purpose!

We loved our stay here. Perfect for visiting Port Arthur. The room had everything you need at a very reasonable price. Plus the owners are very friendly and helpful. Our wifi was weak in the studio but fine from the picnic area. Also near a few interesting hikes.

We stayed 3 nights and were very impressed. The rates were very reasonable and the cottage was roomy, comfortable and well equipped. Our hosts Werner and Kathy couldn't have been more helpful. They were very knowledgeable about the area and we found the information book in the cottage very useful as well. We were keen to do some walks and... More

We needed accommodation for a night near Port Arthur and were forced back to Taranna as there were no vacancies further in. Some things are meant to be. A Tripadvisor search found Masons Cottages and the reviews were pretty well spot on. First impression on drive up is that the cottages are well presented and and cared for. Access is... More

Everything about this place is first class and we really enjoyed our 2 nights there. The wifi didn't work from our studio which is a pain as we need wifi when we travel, but they let me use their office or back porch. Still, a very enjoyable stay in a very clean studio and a very good nights sleep.

Thank you so much for your kind words. Unfortunately our studios are located a little too far from the "wifi box" so depending on the device being used, the signal may not reach to the Studios. This is not the case with our Cottages. Once again thank you for the review, we appreciate it when our guests take the time... More

We stayed for a night. Masons Cottages has a number of cottages and the place with all those cottages looks lovely. The studio in which we stayed had a big, clean room. But if you want to buy groceries then you have to hurry as the two nearby shops (which are at least 10 km and 22 km away) closes... More

Booked the studio for our overnight stay and found it excellent. Werner checked us in, escorted us to the studio and ensured we wanted for nothing. Werner provided several recommendations for dinner and other sightseeing in the area. Thanks Werner. After a great nights sleep we had to checkout.
