The studio unit is more like a large motel room. Very clean. Came with a kitchenette and mini bar fridge equipped for self-catering meals, but found the kitchenette to have lack of benchtop/storage space. Could get a glimpse of the water out of the front window but not much views from the back kitchen window. Well-located for visiting Port Arthur....

Absolutely outstanding, I was flabbergasted to see a wonderful spacious clean studio. Apparently the owners are going to revamp several areas with sky rocket conifers, make the bbq area twice as large and place a fence along the front . My best stay ever in Tasmania and I'm sure this will never be beaten

We stayed at Masons cottages as it was the only place available on the Tasman Peninsular when I booked in November. We were pleasantly surprised by these clean, comfortable cottages. Everything was spotless and with new owners they will improve further. The beds were comfortable, plenty of hot water, and comfortable lounge and TV. We used a shared BBQ both...

Fantastic accommodation for an overnight or extended stay. The owners are very helpful and friendly and the rooms are so clean with plenty of room. They even set up a cot for us as soon as we checked in. Can't wait to come back here for an extended stay.

We found this place on our way to Port Arthur and loved the clean look to it, so we decided to ask about staying for a night. Denise, one of the current owners, was so lovely and the cabin we were in was fantastic. It was roomy, comfortable, and contains all amenities we could have needed and then some. The...

We found out after we arrived that Masons cottages was under new management. The staff were super friendly and accommodating. The room was the cleanest we stayed in on our recent holiday and we stayed in 7 locations. It was cosy and well appointed. I guess the best thing I can say is we are already planning to stay here...

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...

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...

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.
