“Filthy and disgusting.”
Reviewed February 25, 2009

We stayed here for 2 nights on our trip to Tassie in one of the Bay View Cottages.The whole place was filthy,you could write your name in the grease and dust,the windows were so dirty you could hardly see through them,the mattress was stained ( I really am trying hard to forget that) and the settee in the lounge smelt of urine.The fridge had the remains of the previous occupants food.We've stayed in hostels,basic cabins,youth hostels and all sorts of places both in the UK and around the world but never before have we slept anywhere that is dirty.we are not fussy and housekeeping is not top on the list of my priorities but you expect a place to be clean.The owners should be ashamed of themselves.It this had been in the UK we would have walked out but it is not that easy when you are 12000 miles away from home and everywhere else is booked up!The only good point is the location is picturesque and quiet.AVOID AT ALL COSTS.

BGard, owner at Strahan Wilderness Lodge and Bay View Cottages, responded to this review, July 29, 2009
All our beds are fitted with electric blankets over-layed with mattress protectors ensuring we never have stained mattresses.
Towels are changed and rubbish removed during all two day stopovers and reception open from 7am to7pm giving ample opportunity to report any problems.
Problems can only be addressed if they are reported.
In season, all lower priced accommodation is likley to be booked out leaving only higher priced alternitives.
We would gladley assist in finding alternatives if requested to do so.

Brian Gardiner Owner.
