Easy to find, almost on the main road. Room had plenty of space, underfloor & towel rack heating, outside deck. Easy walk to pub and ferry. I thought the cost of the stay was quite high as the breakfast was limited though adequate.

Monday afternoon 13 February, four adults checked into 2 superb suites at the Cove for one night. The rooms were pristine, with every amenity, the underfloor heating was great and the mini bar had exactly enough. The prices of the mini bar were cheap and the profits are donated by the owners to a type of Ronald McDonald House in...

This was the only place that met my standards of luxury on our trip. Stunning view, beautifully furnished, delicious breakfast with gluten free options and warm and caring host. If I ever go back to Hobart, I'm basing myself here for a few days!

One of the nicest places we've ever stayed. The beautiful suite was immaculate with exceptional attention to detail. Dennis was a friendly and most welcoming host who went out of his way to make us comfortable. Cannot recommend this place enough for a long or short stay.

Clean, capacious and comfortable room, as well as the hospitable host. The location is also perfect for the travellers due to the 5-minute walking distance to the Kettering pick up point. We really enjoyed our fist night in Tasmania here.
