We stayed here for two nights at the end of our tour of Tasmania and we can honestly say it was the best accommodation out of all the places we stayed at in Tassie. Our cottage was spotlessly clean and very well appointed. We just could not fault it. Everything is top notch and you can tell that the owners...

My wife and I stayed here for one night and found it very comfortable. The room was very nice and tidy. My wife loved that they had chocolate so you can have a hot chocolate on a cold night. Only a short walk to the beach and main street. Would happily stay again.

Really liked this place. We stayed in Sherbourne #5 and I could not resist the spa!! The location was good for walking the beach or the town and it was quiet and relaxing after a long hike in Freycinet Park. We liked being able to get food from the bakery to be able to eat in.

Stayed 2 nights in Cherry cottage and loved all of it. Extremely clean and spacious. Loved the little extras like the clothes line and PEGS, the bowl on the dresser, very handy for jewelry, and the pre loved books, l left 3 others and took 1 with me.

Loved our only one night stay to see wine glass bay in the freycinet national park. The pier room was exceptionally clean you could eat your dinner off the bathroom floor and lots of nice touches and some extra cooking things. A little bit pricey for one night but i appreciated the warm welcome and cleanliness of everything.

Stayed in the attic spa suite. Was very clean. Roomy for an attic. Spa was great. Quiet, cosy room. Stairs a bit steep to get up to room but was worth the climb. Bed was firm but comfy. Lots of pillows on bed. Close to town and beach

Thank you for your recent review of your stay in the Attic Spa Suite. It is quite a nice little hide-away and as you mentioned quite roomy for an attic.

We came on the last minute. Very friendly people, the cottage is very nicely equipped. Beautiful garden and very close to the beach. We needed a room with access foe a mobility scooter, that was a bit problematic as the sliding door had a small step too. A small ramp would help

We would like to thank you for staying with us as a last minute option. It is unfortunate that our disabled cottage was occupied at the time as this cottage has ramps, and a walk in shower with height adjustable shower chair and hand rails. Maybe in future you could utilise our facilities which would be more suitable to your...
