Overpriced and under-delivered

Reviewed By AussieDoc4217

After traveling around Tasmania and staying at a dozen places, none of them disappointed as much as Villa Howden. We read a review from another TripAdvisor contributor which said that the water was either freezing cold or boiling hot in the shower? How could that be I wondered… but my wife found exactly the same problem. Also, as there is only free-to-air TV, I thought I might watch something on the Internet… wrong. The best download speed I could get was 0.73Mbps… not fast enough for the most basic watchable app. The lovely lady at the counter explained that sometimes the Internet at her home is slow.. that doesn’t help at all. Apart from the fact that the villa doesn’t resemble a French provincial villa in any tangible aspect apart from being a relatively new building but with the deterioration usually seen in truly historic building, the condition of the windows (bird guano and spider webs), the poorly repaired ‘French’ door in our room, the broken and chipped cement render in many many places is consistent with what I have read from other critical contributors: this place is not worth the money. I’m glad I only have to stay 1 night in this dive.

The Cove Kettering

Our three spacious air-conditioned suites are luxuriously appointed. Each has its own en-suite with walk-in shower, heated flooring and heated towel rails. Wake up to views of Little Oyster Cove from your own private balcony.

Great place to stay

Reviewed By blabbergums

Our first visit to this accommodation - wasn't disappointed - easy check in with key lock box if reception is closed, very clean, large bathroom with excellent shower, comfy bed and lounge suite, views, easy parking at the door of your suite. Ample treats in mini bar if you need them and a coffee pod machine. It's an excellent base if exploring the southern area and a very short distance to the ferry to Bruny Island. The breakfast prepared by Jesse is possibly the best we have experienced anywhere - very professionally done with everything you need for a filling breakfast, and I must say the cappuccinos my husband and had at breakfast was the best we had anywhere on our 4 day stay in the south of the state! Good coffee is important!!! The only thing I would say is lacking is a microwave in the suite - there are a number of restaurants in the area that are not open on certain evenings for dinner so unless you have something substantial for lunch, it's a bit hard to find a variety of eating establishments nearby, unless you want to eat at the Cove Inn. This may change in the future but just be aware that you may need to visit the IGA in Margate for supplies.

Hobart Bush Cabins

A nice bush retreat

Reviewed By Stingray7300

These cabins are in a secluded bush setting but are still close to both Kingston and the Hobart city centre. The cabins have all the amenities needed, was lovely and clean and very peaceful. We were travelling with our three children and all had a comfortable night's sleep. The manager (Kellie) was very welcoming and ensured we knew how to access the property if coming from either direction on the highway.

Serenity in Kettering

Reviewed By rabbit59

Beautiful accommodation. Hosts were very gracious in allowing us to cancel with full refund in 2021 at very short notice due to Covid. We rebooked for 2022 and we’re delighted that we did. All communications were friendly, prompt and helpful. Great jumping off point for a day trip to Bruny Island. Would be happy to stay again if we return to Tasmania.

Kingston Hotel

Just ten minutes from Hobart’s CBD and a short walk to picturesque Kingston Beach, Kingston Hotel is a convenient, comfortable and affordable accommodation choice and a great place for locals and tourists alike to relax and unwind...

Will stay again

Reviewed By GreyWolf182

I was very happy with my stay here. Check-in was a little confusing as one checks-in at the old hotel, not where the accommodation is located, so there is a bit of a walk to find where to check-in. Room was huge and the shower was very spacious. The only complaint I will make as it looked like my room (13) may not have been vacuumed (corn chip under the bed and hair, which was not mine, on the floor near the bathroom.) I didn't see a hairdryer, but had brought my own anyway. I got the last car park and am not sure if the parking spots outside the rooms are designated car parking for the hotel guests, or if anyone is able to use them (there are a few other shops close by.)

Brightwater Bed and Breakfast

10+ Highest Rating

Reviewed By bigbearbill

The are showing a 9.2 out of 10 for this place but I give it an 11. One of the if not the best place I have ever stayed. Only room for one booking so your lucky if you get in. A house located on top of a hill surrounded by gardens with a view over the river. Talk and the sunsets and views. Very very comfortable beds great breakfast with several choices and the owners are very friendly. I will be looking to stay here again.

Fantastic and secluded!

Reviewed By stephengJ9107WC

We had a wonderful night here on our travels to Bruny Island. The host was very welcoming and even bought some nibbles for the Pademelons, so we could sit on the deck and watch them. The accommodation is clean and comfortable with a fantastic bed.
