Excellent facilities with hosts that care about you. Our room was very modern with great deal of thought in how they have designed the room for your comfort as a traveller. Included white dressing gowns. D Space for two large suitcases and plenty of bench space but doesn't detract from the room. The mattress was excellent and extremely comfy. A lovely balcony and nice cane furniture for outside sitting. Lovely roomy shower and two basins. Breakfast was included and it was very nice and Ross makes a mean strong long black...thanks Ross. We also had an evening meal prepared by Bronwyn and it was superb. Close to Bruny Island ferry and many lovely drives. Do suggest the Tahene Air Walk.

Room Tip: All great rooms.

What more do I need to say other than the best we have experienced thus far, Bronwyn and Ross were amazing hosts. The room was superb, would be even better in winter with the excellent heating provided if required. The rooms are very private and seperate from the main house area so noise is definately not a problem. Bronwyns Breakkies and Dinners are a must!! Do not miss out on the dinners!!! No better place to visit Bruny island from as well. Awesome

We had a great night with hosts Bronwyn and Ross last week.
This is an outstanding property with excellent attention to detail.
Our hosts prepared an excellent meal , served it to us and then politely disappeared.
Breakfast was also excellent and we will return for a longer stay.

We only stayed one night but the hosts were welcoming and the breakfast was lovely. The view over the marina was beautiful. The room was very nice with WiFi available. It was a great base for catching the early ferry to Bruny Island for the cruise.

My Husband and I spent four days at The Cove Kettering. Bronwyn and Ross are friendly and informative hosts. We were made most welcome. The rooms are both luxurious and comfortable with views to die for. Don't close the curtains at night- enjoy the harbour lights and stars. The breakfasts were beautifully prepared with local produce and Bronwyn's slow cooked lamb for dinner was excellent.
We would love to come back in winter and sit by the fire place in the guest lounge and soak in the views again.
