“Excellent in every way”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2012

We felt welcome from the first minute and everything was so clean, luxurious and comfortable.
We enjoyed a wonderful stay here and everything was provided. Fresh milk for breakfast, thick new towels in the beautifully appointed bathroom and super clean, fresh rooms superbly and tastefully decorated.
Our hostess even gave us an idea of the best places to visit in the area and where to eat out.

We could not fault this accommodation and recomend it to anyone seeking affordable quality .

The Aldermere luxury apartments don’t look much from the outside, and are lined up in a row like a motel; thus not particularly private. General setting was ordinary.

However, the decor and fittings inside are genuinely luxurious and pleasant. Excellent kitchen (although, of course, no dishwasher). Totally clean. Free laundry facilities appreciated. Bed was comfortable (apart from the plague of Tasmania: the large, rigid plastic disc of an electric blanket controller that digs into your back all night.) Bathroom very good with large and strong shower. Whole apartment reasonable size, comfortable. Small supermarket, pharmacy 5 mins walk away.

Some features to be aware of: master bedroom is upstairs and poorly ventilated with no airconditioning: it was virtually uninhabitable with temperatures above 27-28 degrees C. Probably OK most of year but most uncomfortable in the heat. Overhead fan just swished hot air around. Downstairs noticeably several degrees cooler. Situated on Harvey street: well back from waterfront, no views. Neighbourhood quiet. Strange proliferation of instruction signs all over the place: gave a
controlling and paternalistic feel (“switch off electric blanket before going to sleep” etc). They should bin them! No internet connection in apartment. No phone. No iron or ironing board in room. So not fully self-contained. Not fully serviced each day; just change towels, empty bins.

In summary, just fine for a couple of nights if not hot weather. Interior probably nicer than most of Strahan accommodation. Shame no internet/iron in room. Perfectly functional, remembering you are not in a city here.

aldermere, Owner at Aldermere Estate Luxury Accommodation, responded to this review, January 19, 2012
Incorrect information in this recent email.
There is a bench top ironing board and iron in the corner cupboard in the kitchens.

The signs regarding electric blankets to be turned off is there as guests have at times left them on all day and is a potential fire hazard. The plastic disc of the electric blanket is on the edge of the mattress and I cant understand why they would have laid on it.

We have garden views and have never pretended that we have water views.

Rooms have opening windows, ceiling fans and portable fans in them, and are built to stratum specs with double brick walls with sand in between and are very quiet, infact it is difficult to even speak & hear someone upstairs from the ground floor area..

Our exterior is a lovely sight with matching tables & chairs on the verandahs, and a well kept garden and lawns. Internet dongal is available on request.

No phone in rooms as most travellers have mobiles, and if they haven't I allow guests to use the office phone at no charge.

Would you please remove this review from Trip Advisor as it will discredit our #1 rating with you, and just wish the guests would have vented there comments whilst they were staying with us to allow me to address the situation.
Kind Regards,
Sheree

I also selected this accommodation based on Trip Advisor reviews and could not have been happier.
Lovely decor, clean, comfortable beds, and beautifully maintained with spacious rooms
Loved the large spa bath
Only small negative is to be careful of the slippery floor tiles in the upstairs bathroom.
The free washing machine and clothes dryers are an absolute bonus for any traveller.
Sheree is kind, and incredibly helpful and friendly. In fact she is the best owner/manager we have come across in all our travels anywhere.

My dad and I stayed at Aldermere for two nights while visiting the West Coast. Sheree, the owner, was very helpful in getting everything ready for us as we arrived after opening hours. She also provided detailed and useful information on what to see and do.

Everything was impeccably clean and comfortable. I was quite impressed with the building's lovely architecture, both spacious and cosy, and the outside front platform is a real treat in nice weather.

The location is just ideal. On the top of the hill yet very close to Strahan, and a walking distance from the local (small) supermarket. I will definitely recommend and come back.

Tip: Send Sheree an email (address on their website) rather than booking through an online agent.

One of the best places I have ever stayed appart from top Hotels where you pay a fortune! Clean,tidy, fabulous decor, wonderful down to earth hosts. Just like living in your own home with a warm fire that gets lit for you before you get (home). The bed is as comfortable as my own at home. I just cannot say enough about this fabulous place in a very picturesque town.

Room Tip: All rooms are great!

We selected this accommodation based on the feedback from TripAdvisor. The accommodation was great, clean and roomy meeting all of our needs.Upon our arrival we were greeted by the proprietor who spent time introducing Strahan to us, A1 service.

Room Tip: We booked ahead but you could have saved some money by using the standby rate that was available.

Strahan Visitors Information Centre - thank you very much for introducing my husband and I to this elegant estate and at such a low price for what it has to offer !!!!

A gas fire burning when you enter your two storey apartment, a large bathroom, a comfortable bed, a FREE guest laundry, and enough videos to choose from. Sheree the manager was ever so helpful, providing a map and information on Strahan.

We stayed two nights and really have no complaints whatsoever about Aldermere Estate and would definitely return if we are in Strahan again.
