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.

The pluses first: accommodation was clean, and convenient to the Spirit of Tasmania ferry port. It was kinda cute and the overall appearance of the cottage was charming. The tariff was quite reasonable and booking over the phone was straightforward. The minuses: very cramped with furniture too large for the available space, and the shower arrangement rather unusual!

Loved the proximity to the city centre (10 min drive). It’s a quaint space with coffee/tea facilities, microwave, fridge, heating - all the important bits for a comfy stay. Access was by keypads through the gate, then to the room, which was great. My only concern was the shower, toilet and sink that shared the same space i.e. a shower will wet the whole space. That said, a squeegee was provided as well. Overall it’s a good place for a few nights’ stay.

Initially chosen for its proximity to the Spirit of Tasmania ferry terminal, we stayed in the First Officers Quarters for one night. The house has been beautifully restored and represents its history exceptionally well. Whilst the accommodation is neat with expected amenities, the first officers quarters is a bit challenging in a few areas. Bar fridge is sitting on the floor with a microwave sitting on top of it. A table please! Bathroom is poorly designed with a common floor for toilet, shower and basin. The shower rose is in the centre of the room without an enclosure. Double bed is far too small!!!! I’m 6’ and my feet hang over the end. Motion sensor light is annoying at night. None of the drawbacks would deter me from returning now I understand what’s on offer.

This is a large 19th century house which has been restored beautifully, and divided into 2 separate areas for accommodation. We (2 adults and 2 kids) stayed in the "Captain's Lodgings" section. The place has free wifi. There is lots of antique furniture and ship-themed decorations. Despite being an old house, it has been beautifully restored with a modern bathroom. It has a full kitchen with cooking and eating utensils, knives, boards, pots and pans, microwave, stove/oven, jug etc. There is a lovely garden with some chairs to sit on, and an old kid's swing set. There's no laundry facilities for guests to use, so be aware of that. The price is also very affordable for such a nice place. The only downside to this accommodation is that it's a little out of town. All the restaurants, shops and lighthouse are about a 10 minute drive down the highway and across the bridge. However, there is an IGA Xpress supermarket, a butcher and a cafe nearby (cafe is in another historic house).

This accommodation is just beautiful. The furnishings are olde style but the kitchen and bathroom amenities are very modern, clean and has everything you didn't know you wanted. We stayed 4 days in this lovely old home and would not hesitate to stay again. Convenient to town, just across the river and pleasant riverside walks and importantly just 2 minutes from the ferry. Shops are just around the corner for the grocery items etc. Our love of history was satisfied when we saw the history of the house and found the hand written message from a daughter of the Port Master. What was most surprising, was the image of an old fashioned lady which appeared in my camera when I reviewed the following morning. I then took another photo with my camera on a direct line of sight and with none of us nearby to reflect in the frame. Same result with the young lady appearing. This is, to us, a most treasured photo.

Quiet location with many period features. Very handy for ferry. Plenty of facilities in the house. Two things that were a little difficult ... the people sleeping in the living room had 2 door frames but only one door and the shower splashed water like crazy. We spent a while each day squeegeeing the floor. But in spite of that the Port Masters Lodgings were a step back in time and a quaint start to our holiday.

Such a smooth easy booking with Claudia. I had changed the day we were to arrive on the Spirit of Tasmania so sent Claudia a txt and organised everything. We stayed in the First Officers Cabin and had everything we needed for our first night. Nice and close to the terminal and an absolutely beautiful, peaceful setting. Secure behind gate parking (not that you need it!)

beautiful restored one bedroom ensuite accomodation (first officers). Close to Spirit of Tasmania ferry terminal. Very quiet. All access details messaged in advance, very convenient. A few issues to note, bedside tables were so tiny they were unusable, bathroom is a wet room so bathroom floor very wet and slippery, too much furniture and awkward to Move around, couldn’t fit kettle under bathroom tap and basin in awkward position to access.
