3 days in a beautiful apartment - views amazing - Service - well what can I say. Bronwyn & Ross you are fabulous - even down to folding my washing. Your breakfasts were amazing and have now bought the wattleseed spice. But !!! your slow cooked lamb - nothing I have had for a long time could beat that. Just what I needed to relax away from a high pressure working environment in hospitality. I would highly recommend this new style of B & B to everyone. Lucy is delightful.

It was delightful to have such wonderful guests, and The Cove will alway strive for that great experience and yes the Lamb will always stay on our Dinner menu due to popular demand.

Spent two wonderful at The Cove pre Christmas.
Bronwyn and Ross are warm and generous hosts. The accommodation was luxurious. Large room with a great bed and amenities and the view is exquisite. I would highly recommend. Thank you for a wonderful start to our Tassie holiday!

My wife and I shared 3 wonderful days with our close friends (see woodstock55's review). Everything everyone has written in their reviews leaves little else for me to say but WHAT A FANTASTIC PLACE TO STAY!

Room Tip: Each of the 3 rooms are identical with balcony's providing great views

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.
