Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Alice beside the Sea, studio apartment with everything that you may need. We needed a emergency stop over, Alice extremely accommodating with our needs, which included our Ragdoll Cat, no a problem. Thank goodness.. Cannot speak highly enough of Alice, lovely person.. so very helpful. Nothing was an issue… Very Highly recommend staying here. The view across the road of the sea entry into Devonport is stunning.. only 15 minutes from the City Centre..with everything you may need..

Being a tour guide I travel all over Tasmania but don't usually stop over in Devonport. Due to snow at Cradle Mt we weren't able to actually get there so had to make some quick changes to the itinerary and decided to head for Devonport. It meant last minute accommodation bookings into unknown places. What a hidden gem I found at Alice's. A lovely self contained and self catering cottage separate from the rest of the accommodation. It was absolutely perfect after a very long and difficult journey (driving in a snow storm!). The cottage contains everything you could ever need, the recliner rocker was especially appreciated. Books, dvds and a very good folder filled with heaps of useful information and menus for various dinner options. After spending time here and having the opportunity to visit local attractions I shall definitely be putting Devonport on future itineraries! An added bonus was to see the Spirt of Tasmania sail past, especially at night.

Flew into Devonport on way to Cradle Mountain and points South. Stayed 2 nights to rest up and get supplies for self dri e trip. We were on 2 bedroom unit/cabin which had everything we needed. Would recommend as very good value for money.

I stayed here at Easter. Two families, 4 adults and 5 children fitted comfortably. Clean and tidy, but furniture a bit dated but in good condition, think 80's furniture. Only one toilet and one shower in four bedroom apartment, no dishwasher. No laundry facilities, but there is a coin laundry down the road. Satellite tv. Overall comfortable stay.

Thank you for leaving a review. I'm glad you enjoyed the 4 Bedroom Holiday-House with it's magnificent ocean views and new BBQ on the deck. The "spa-bath" is very popular and with a separate shower-room and separate toilet-room gives a relaxing "spa time". The free Fox-Tel and free WI-FI internet has been very popular also. With it's new flooring through-out in February this year many annual returning guests are delighted. Across the road from the beach - "sand can be a problem at times" : )

A three night stay at Alice’s by the Sea On arrival at Tasmania we wanted somewhere to base ourselves for the first few days. Alice’s was clean, quirky and very reasonably priced. It was very close to the water at the entrance of the river... you knew when the Spirit was coming or going as you felt it! You just looked out and there it was.Well priced and well situated if you have you own car. Alice’s was a very nice stay for us.

This property is in a great location. We had a party of 10 & it was quiet spacious. Its down fall was very outdated needed new linen floor covering seen better days, No laundry facilities & only one bathroom makes it difficult for 10 people. We stayed 3 days & our towels where never replaced or house serviced. We attempted many times to contact owner re Laundry facilities but never got a response. As you are on top floor the fire escape ( back stairs) was totally grown over & blocked by pot plants at the bottom. I dont think we will be returning.

Could not rate this highly enough, we had a late need for accommodation and Alice was great to deal with. Had the upstairs rooms for our family at a very reasonable rate. Every part of the accommodation was very clean and comfortable. Not a bad thing we could say. Great location and wonderful all round.

A group of 5 of us descended onto Devonport for a wedding. After two flights for some of us to get here, it was lovely to arrive at such a spacious, neat and well provisioned place. (Upstairs) The view is lovely, and breakfast on the balcony is a must. Bedrooms are spacious and comfortable, and there is enough room for two separate eating areas and a large family/lounge area. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need (plates, cups, glasses, cutlery, pots, pans, electric wok, sandwich maker, crock pot etc.etc.) - I mean EVERYTHING!! Neat, tidy, clean, roomy! The only thing that was a bit of a challenge was one shower and a small-ish bathroom between 5 - I can only imagine it being a little more cramped with two families or more people. The host, Alice, is very friendly and welcoming. I know some people may baulk at the price, but believe me, it was well worth it.

We stayed in the two bedroom apartment. Every thing you could want for a stay. Clean and comfortable and shower awesome - great water flow and much roomier than a motel. No fuss booking and transaction. Complete privacy and undercover free parking. Has full size fridge, iron, ironing board, hairdryer and plenty of hanging space and hangers.
