We booked Smugglers' Rest at the last minute after previous accommodation fell through. What a delight and total surprise. Right from our arrival, the owner was friendly and helpful. We were also given an upgrade which added to our delight. The views from our apartment were stunning, looking out across the bay. It was the perfect place to stay. It was comfortable and had all the facilities we needed. It was clean and tidy. The owner also provided us with great tips on where to eat. Am already planning on returning again! Would recommend this accommodation to anyone looking for a delightful, quiet place to stay.

This was a great surprise. Whilst prebooked. Sometimes you never know. The complimentary upgrade was so beautiful. Ans all rooms overlook the bay. Stunning. Rooms are clean. Plenty of stuff to prepare on meals. We ate wood fire pizza from up the road. Used this as a base to explore the South Cape. Would recommend this for a couple or families. Excellent value.

Great place, great hosts. Our unit had 2 rooms. One room had a queen and the 2nd had two single beds overlooking the water. Room very comfy and clean, couldn't fault. There is a beautiful garden and BBQ area out the back, bikes to ride and close to all services within Dover. I will certainly return.

Stayed here for 2 nights in September. Enjoyed the nice and quiet surrounding and big apartment. Owner put on heater for us before we checked in. Pros: clean, quiet and big apartment. Free parking in front of house. Cons: far from the ville. Requires driving to access the place. Overall a good place to stay if you are driving in Tasmania.

We stayed in a water view room for 5 nights in late April. Chris was kind enough to put the heater on before we arrived so the room was toasty warm. The unit was immaculate and included a fridge, stove, microwave and all the necessities to cook on the nights we didn't go out. We appreciated the free laundry and DVD'S; Zac also told us about the free BBQ, bikes and fishing gear, unfortunately we didn't get time to use any. We enjoyed great meals out at the RSL & a dinner at the Post Office Restaurant was one of the best I've had. I highly recommend Dover and wouldn't stay anywhere else but Smugglers Inn.
