We stayed in Dotril, one of the single bedroom cottages with an absolutely fabulous view down the length of Binalong Bay. Very basic accommodation but very clean and welcoming. Everything we needed was there, as well as things we didn't; small kitchen with stove, fridge and dishwasher, TV, extra blanket and pillows, hair dryer. Conveniently located just a few steps...

Stayed in Dotril cottage during our road trip, for 1 night. We booked quite way in advance as we learnt that it isn't easy to get rooms here. The proximity to the beach is a plus point, and there is a small kitchen for you to prepare simple meals. There's allocated car park lot for each cottage and shouldn't be...

I stayed in burgess cottage as it was closest to the bottom of the hill and across the road from the beach. Very clean, comfortable bed, great views and lots of birds around. No oven but you don't really need one as you have hot plates and a microwave and electric fry pan. Fridge, washing machine and tub inside and...

We stayed here for one night on a recent trip around Tassie, and I would highly recommend it. We stayed in Albatross cottage, which was HUGE and had absolutely everything you'd need. It was so beautiful and quiet, it was so wonderful to fall to sleep listening to the sound of the waves crashing on the beach. While the unit...

We have just thoroughly enjoyed 2 nights with our family of 4 in Albatross. Cottage was very comfortable with great beds. Very nice linen and more towels and amenities than we could use.

Spent a night in the Albatross cottage on our travels up the coast. The view is the most striking asset of the character cottages, it cannot be faulted. Luckily we had a great afternoon and following morning to soak it all in. I even tempted fate and went in the beach, Tassie water is not that warm in March. The...

We recently stayed at Albatross and although the cottage was an older style cottage it was presented well and had great views particularly from the large balcony. The wood fire BBQ we found great to use at the sheltered back , this made up for the lack of an oven which would have been useful. The café below was great...
