Reviewed April 4, 2006

Really liked this place. It was calm and relaxing. The suites are modern, very well-laid out with full length sliding doors to deck and a wonderful peaceful view of the bay and the hills in background. Bed was large, good bathroom, useful kitchenette. I wouldn't describe it as luxurious or posh, but it was comfortable, quiet, spacious, quite stylish, with a great view - things which are the main priorities for me. Also loved the restaurant - nice atmosphere and great food. It was full every night with mix of guests and non-guests. We were there end January, peak season, so needed to book dinner table in advance. When the sun sets, the whole restaurant goes quiet and watches. We borrowed bikes and cycled into Coles Bay - not far, but road is quite busy and fast (so not recommended at night). January gets very booked up everywhere in Tasmania, so recommend booking early (at least 1-2 months in advance) as there is very limited choice of accommodation in many places. There are no bargains at that time of year, but although we paid full price here, we were very satisfied and preferred it to the Freycinet Lodge (which we also stayed in and was more expensive).

We stayed here for 2 nights (January 06) in a waterfront suite. Firstly, the setting is amazing, beautiful and peaceful on Great Oyster Bay with views of Freycinet and the amazing Hazards.The resort has blended itself in so well within this setting and the rooms are very well designed.
The rooms have a kitchenette, lounge area, beautiful comfy bed, tv/cd/dvd, large modern bathroom and private outdoor deck to relax and watch the mesmerising hazards.
It felt very luxurious lying in bed with floor to ceiling glass views of the bay and hazards.
Beautiful beaches are a direct walk from your room. The resort also has tennis courts and row boats free to use and laundries.
We dined both nights at the restaurant (other dining options are available at nearby Coles Bay a short drive away) but the food and service here is fantastic.
We were visited often by families of Bennets Wallabies that live within the grounds.
It is definetely worth looking at the resorts website to give you a visual idea of how beautiful the setting is and the quality of the rooms.
Can't wait to stay here again !!

We stayed at the Edge of the Bay Resort in Coles Bay, Tasmania for 2 nights in February.

This resort is absolutely beautiful with clusters of rooms built overlooking the magnificent bay with the Hazard Mountains in the distance. Stepping out of our room, there was a path leading down to a deserted beach.

The room was top rate, with huge floor to ceiling windows showing the amazing view of beach, sea and mountains.

There is a fantastic restaurant in the resort, which we ate in on both nights, with some of the best food I have had in Tasmania.

All in all this is a brilliant place to stay, very beautiful surroundings, wonderfully relaxing, fantastic food and really friendly and helpful staff.
