“Oh WOW!”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

Bronwyn & Roger, what have you done?
Eveything and everywhere is now measured by our time with you at your gorgeous establishment.
The welcome, the food!!, the wine, the conversation, the accommodation, the ethics, the whole experience was perfect.
The rooms were clean, warm, comfortable and private.
Our time spent around the Kettering area was devine. A true getaway.
You are both generous spirits who deserve great success!
Thank you!!
Elizabeth & Tony Reece

We booked into The Cove as a meeting point for 2 couples to explore the surrounding area in between business . We were so pleased with everything about this accommodation, especially the view - looking down on the Kettering Marina at any time of the day is the most restful experience. Bronwyn is the best cook and just a wonderful person to be around, nothing was too much trouble. Lucy obviously knew we were doggy people and came to visit, we also hope to meet Ross next time we come down from Melbourne. The Cove was a great base to visit various spots like the Tahune Walk in Geeveston, Bruny Island and just a quick drive up to Hobart. We stayed for 4 nights and sampled dinners from Snug thru Kettering - all great, plus the local butcher for BBQ meat. He stays open later than usual to accommodate tourists. Also, as business travellers, wireless internet connection was free and worked perfectly. We will certainly be returning. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Only 3 rooms, all the same.

My wife and I spent 2 nights there recently. Bronwyn could not have tried any harder to make us feel welcome. We had her superb 6 hr slow roasted lamb shoulder on the first night which we complemented with our own local wine.....delicious.
We were both so full and satisfied and only a 10 metre walk back to our room. The rooms are clean, comfortable and exceptionally fitted out with a view to die for. Brekky was amazing. All local produce which kept us going all day. I can fully recommend :)

We had three nights at the Cove and it was a highlight of our Tasmanian trip. Bronwyn is a perfect host. Her warmth and hospitality are top class. The food was just fantastic - a different and exciting dish every night as well as imaginative breakfasts. And a great wine selection. The suites are large, contemporary and comfortable and the WiFi is terrific. Bathroom is great. Each suite enjoys an expansive view of the bay and Bruny Island. We were referred to The Cove by friends who insisted we stay here and we will be doing the same. The positioning is perfect. The Bruny Island ferry is close by. Port Arthur is a convenient 1.5 hours and the Huon Valley is readily accessible. And Hobart is only a 25 minutes drive. We could not speak more highly of our stay here. Thank you, Bronwyn.

WOW. Do yourself a favour and stay at The Cove. It's a B and B but you have your own private entry to your room, and what a room it is. Best bed . Very spacious. A huge luxury bathroom and a view that you could sit and enjoy all day no matter what the weather. Then there is the sitting room with big comfy leather couches with the same great view. This also has a fireplace which Bronwyn lit on our last morning there as the weather had turned a bit chilly. (I should mention there is under floor heating in the bedrooms). The lounge area also has an area for dining. Bronwyn enjoys cooking and it shows in what she serves. Wonderful. Fabulous. Welcoming These words describe our stay at The Cove and Bronwyn. Thank you.

What a warm welcome we received from Bronwyn for our three night stay at The Cove. Lovely accommodation, clean and comfortable with everything needed for travellers who had been living out of a suitcase for the past three weeks. Lucy the "in house guard dog" - a very cute West Highland terrior - greeted us each time we came and went and soon adopted us as her new "best friends".

Bronwyn's cooking skills are not to be underestimated - everything presented was imaginative and delicious. We had dinner at The Cove for three nights and it was great to come home after a full day touring the area to a fabulous home cooked dinner and a selection from the excellent Tassie wine list.

A great stay, very much enjoyed and highly recommended!

The Cove is certainly a special B & B huge bedroom, beautifully views overlooking yachts on
the cove. Bronwyn is an excellent hostess and her warm nature, ensures you are well looked after. It was the highlight of our trip around tasmania, and would certanly go back.
Would certainly reccommend The Cove for a relaxing getaway.

Room Tip: Rooms are ground floor so no lugging suitcases, upstairs.
