This was the only place that met my standards of luxury on our trip. Stunning view, beautifully furnished, delicious breakfast with gluten free options and warm and caring host. If I ever go back to Hobart, I'm basing myself here for a few days!

One of the nicest places we've ever stayed. The beautiful suite was immaculate with exceptional attention to detail. Dennis was a friendly and most welcoming host who went out of his way to make us comfortable. Cannot recommend this place enough for a long or short stay.

We stayed 2 nights here, however could have stayed longer. Shirley was our host whilst we were there. She was welcoming and accommodating. The rooms are well appointed with an amazing view across the bay. Comfortable beds, great bathroom amenities. Breakfast was amazing. Would recommend to all. Would definitely stay again.

Clean, capacious and comfortable room, as well as the hospitable host. The location is also perfect for the travellers due to the 5-minute walking distance to the Kettering pick up point. We really enjoyed our fist night in Tasmania here.

The view of Kettering harbour from the large glass sliding doors which lead on to a balcony, is superb. It is fascinating to sit and watch the changing weather and when the sun shines and the harbour sparkles, it is just magic. The...

Our room was very large with large glass doors opening on to the balcony that overlooked the marina and bay.
