We stayed at the Cottages after Christmas on the last leg of our Tasmanian Christmas break and after the usual and unexpected stresses of family Christmas, this was a wonderful, restful haven, even if only for one night. The studio room we stayed in was well equipped with everything you could need and would normally have at home. Lovely decor,...

These cottages are an absolute delight. Clean, comfortable and convenient. We stayed there in September and made them a base from which to visit the north coast of Tasmania. If we had known just how good they were, we would have stayed there longer rather than staying some of the time in Launceston as well. Highly recommended.

The hosts Margi and Geoff were perfect hosts. We used the bbq which was perfectly clean. Our room was pleasantly clean. The kitchenette facilities were as good as any ktichen in an apartment. It was convenient and would have stayed an extra 3 days if they had had availabilty. Word of advice book early!!!!

It was our first trip to Tassie. We left the ferry and headed straight to Shearwater Cottages at Port Sorell where we had booked for our first night! We found it spotless, tidy and certainly would have stayed another night had we been able to do so. Margie and Geoff were very friendly, and rewarded us with a carry bag...
