“Great faclities and location !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2012

What a lovely spot. A quiet back street right near the beach and town. Set in amongst nice gardens with bbq and stream. Rooms are large and have all the amenities. They are clean, a little dated but have new improvements such as tv, fridge etc. These are great value.

This is the best place I've stayed in Tasmania and one of the best in Australia. The price is very affordable, and the rooms are spacious. All the rooms are 2-bedroom, and though I was on my own this time I'd happily come back with the family.

The whole place is very quiet, being in a dead-end street not far from the centre of town, and near the beach. You can park right in front of your unit, and the lights on the outside of the unit are controlled from inside (rather than permanently on like at so many places), so it is nice and dark too. Travelling in July, it was freezing cold, but the heating in the unit is great. Simply turn on the heater and it blasts out warm air - much better than the remote controlled split systems you get in the newer places which I find very hit and miss.

The decor is old, but this doesn't bother me in the slightest. Everything works and there is plenty of space, and it's very convenient. Nice new LCD TV that plays video files too. Unfortunately they can't do much about the weather which was pouring rain most of the time I was there.

The unit my wife and I stayed in is very spacious (2 bedrooms, but only one used). Checking-in was efficient, welcoming and professional. Although the units are getting old this is not immediately apparent due to their being well maintained and appointed, with a well-equipped kitchen and full-sized fridge, sufficient for a much longer stay than our 2 nights. The location is near the main beach, but tucked in a cul-de-sac, with a stream running through the complex, which has aquatic life of interest to people of all ages; but supervision of young children would be essential when outdoors. The outdoor facilities (e.g. BBQ area), the bird life (white doves), and attractively landscaped grounds add to the quality of this accommodation. It all adds up to good value for money.

We enjoyed being able to easily walk to the beach, while also being near to town. The rooms have a well equipped kitchen, which served us well. We also appreciated the pretty gardens.

We travel to Tasmania regularly to visit family - decided to try this instead of the usual motels; it was a great find - really well set up 2 bed room unit, fully equipped kitchen, good size bed rooms and bathroom. The units are tucked away, off the main road, so very quite; but only a few minutes drive to "downtown'. Justin, the host, was very helpful, right from making the booking (we booked direct). Price was quite competitive with a standard motel room, but the facilities and space gave us much better value. We will stay there again.

Lovely owners, and very accommodating. The apartment was clean and the kitchen was very well equipped (even had a little oven along with the stovetop, microwave and full sized fridge). Location was pretty close to the shopping centre. We were given a porta-cot for our baby to sleep in free of charge. I like the little extras that made our stay better like good quality soaps, fresh milk, freshly laundered linnen and blanket for the cot.

The bathroom was a bit dated, but it was very spacious.

My partner and I rave about this place. It's set down the road from the main shopping precinct in Ulverstone; a five minute walk from the beach, but yet it's so quiet - terrific! The apartments are very clean and well set up and would be perfect for a small family, or a couple. The bathroom was a little older, but quite spacious and very clean, as was the rest of the place. Our hosts were great, very friendly, and there's a fantastic compendium of information about Ulverstone and the surrounding districts in the room. We would definitely stay there again.
