“Room with a view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2014

From the outside the rooms looked ordinary and dated but inside open and modern and clean with a great sea view. Very quiet. The pub with great meals and atmosphre next door and friendly and helpful staff.

We enjoyed our stay at Kestral Studio. Everything was very clean and brand new, the bed was comfortable & we loved lounging on our deck. Would have loved a few more cooking staples to work with (i.e. olive oil) but apart from that it was easy to cook in the kitchen with their great appliances. Definitely visit Hotel Bruny for a great meal while you're there!

We have just enjoyed a 3 night stay in one of the cottages. We found the accommodation to be clean and comfortable and enjoyed the view and afternoon sun from the rear windows of the cottage. Yes, the grounds could probably do with a spruce up as the last reviewer has noted, but this is BI where everything seemed a bit wild and wooly. Three nights seemed to be a good amount of time to spend on BI as there is quite a bit to do and see especially if you are interested in doing some walks. We would recommend this accommodation to others.

We stayed in Explorers Cottage 1 for 2 nights in summer and had all four seasons during that time! The fire was nice and view great. Cottage could do with a thorough clean and spruce up, maybe tat happens during winter?

For the money we expected better facilities and generally the place was also a bit dated. The outside could be doing with a serious spruce up and window clean. Having bought some nice steaks very disappointed that the BBQ was not fit for use and had actually asked that specific question when checking in. Was a nice touch to have electric blankets and a wood burning stove all prepped for use.

With the main tourist season about to begin, the place should have been spick and span ready for summer's customers. Unfortunately it wasn't. The linen was nice though. The view from the living room and bedroom was fantastic and the fireplace warmed the whole cottage through. Sadly the barbecues were filthy, and in any even there was no gas. The door to the patio jammed on our first evening and despite reporting it to the Bruny Hotel who manage the cottages that same evening, it remained jammed for our two-night stay.

Our accomm looked nothing like the pictures either (we stayed in #1), agree it was a bit dated/tired looking but u have all the essentials. We liked feeding the ducks each morning & afternoon. Our cabin also had a brilliant ocean view & has a cosy feel to it. The wood heater was prepared before we arrived so u only had to light the match to start it. The beds were comfortable, electric blanket on the bed if u needed. Being an older style weatherboard there seem to b an ants problem - so don't leave anything out! We would stay again.
