Perfect for our needs. We had some employees working at the Tasmania Super Sprint, and this property was perfect for that. Will definitely use again, and would highly recommend. Thanks Ron for all your assistance.

everything you need

  • 5 of 5

We really like staying here and were sad to leave. Old and charming, obviously very loved- lots of little extra touches done by owners that often isn't seen at a place like this. The owner was very accommodating- we had a lot of booking issues with the Stayz site. And with what little concerns we did have, the owner addressed them right away.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure accommodating your family and if ever you're back in Tassie, we'd love to look after you again.

2 nights at Thistle Cottage

  • 4 of 5

I don't usually write reviews. I booked this cottage for two Easter nights for very cheap price, almost half of the price other accommodation quoted. then read the previous reviews made me nervous about my choice. I was actually very surprised how nice, tidy and clean this cottage is, compare to other reviews, much higher than expectation. We felt in love straight away with the fruity backyard, each guest eats at least 4 apples a day and my sister loves the raw blackberries. It's closed to everything you needed. The only thing couldn't make my review to 5 stars is the noisy floor and squeaking beds, too noisy to have a good sleep. But overall. We are happy for what we've paid for.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments Linda - and thanks for pointing out the noise with the heater. We don't find these things out until someone tells us. It's now been fixed. I think you've been a bit harsh with your comments and ratings as we've been averaging 4 and more stars from recent reviews - (4.5 for cleanliness) and 5 from 5 stars from the people who stayed just a few weeks before your visit. The Cottage was built in the Art Deco period and does display elements of Art Deco architecture and features.
