we were 4 families staying in 3 cottages, The accommodation is clean except that the rugs had not been probably dusted out for years. All essential amenities were provided. The fridge in the second cottage that our friends stayed was not working but we could not be bothered to call the accommodation services. Instead we shared the fridges in the...

The place was really clean and tidy with a good supply of hot water. I'd give 5 stars just for that. But 3 of our families stayed 3 nights and there were some things lacking. One of the fridges were out of order. Considering you have to buy your own food due to the very expensive groceries on bruny, this...

Set among beautiful Australian bush this accommodation provides a welcome respite form the bustle of busy city life. Located on the "quiet" side of Bruny it is convenient to some of the beautiful walks on the island. It is half an hour to drive to the nearest shops at Adventure Bay. Kangaroos can be seen grazing on the grass and...

Lovely cabins that lend themselves to rest and relaxation. Build yourself a fire and just watch life go by with a wine or beer on the mini verandah. We were met by 4 ducks on our return from a cruise. Gave them muesli. What an Eden!! Good value for money. Close to great food and Oh! The scenery. Aroura Australus...

Well equipped cottage to call home, after a full day sight seeing and tasting all that's on offer on Bruny. I was so looking fwd to the smoked goods from BISH, but its now closed down. Check in is at the Bruny Hotel and then a 7km drive down the dirt road gets you to the small group of 6...

Maxy's by the Sea, Bruny The location and views were sensational, the beds warm and comfy, but that's where the good times end, unfortunately for us. The lack of basics in this holiday let did leave a lot to be desired. One measly firefighter, no kindling and wet wood outside - in the middle of winter - was not enjoyable...

Very poor, insects on the floor, insects on the ceilings, windows had never been cleaned for a very long time, no indication of where the cottage was, nowhere near the beach, outlook trees, anyone booking must make sure where the cottage is. Wash basin drain slow draining out, needed clearing, very expensive for what it is.

Pick up the key from the Bruny Hotel and travel 5 minutes down a paved and then dirt road to the cottages. We had cottage 6 so no ocean views. The bush views were nice. Ducks to welcome us along with paddy melons (small marsupials) and rabbits. The cottage was clean and fire ready to light with matches and fire...

You ask yourself what else can you expect from a 3 star cottage? Basic but clean right? Well, the previous reviewer has saved me uploading images of the dirty bathroom & (smelly) toilet etc etc. which give you an idea to the contrary. The fire was actually loaded to go but no matches! The 1 electric room heater did not...
