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.

We stayed in an Ocean View Suite which had views across the bay to the Hazards. The suite was lovely with a comfortable bed, and very clean. The en suite bathroom had a movement sensor which switched the extractor fan on and off - a clever idea. There is an allocated parking space directly outside the door. Unfortunately the owner of the on-site restaurant had permanently closed without warning so it was necessary to either self cater (as we did for breakfast), eat out or obtain a takeaway. There is a kettle and toaster in the suite but no cooking facilities. It would have been nice if the tea/coffee/sugar/biscuits had been replenished during our stay. We purchased salad from Coles Bay and ate supper on the decking. It is a very short walk to the small local beach where we swam in the sea. Canoes etc were provided but we didn’t use them. We did walk to Coles Bay through the bush and along the beach but this took about 40 minutes. We were privileged to see a wild wallaby come past on a couple of occasions. There is an on site laundry which we made use of (washing free, drying 1$ for 20 minutes). It is very quiet here and ideal if you like privacy.

There was no restaurant for meals at all . No microwave to heat food . Our agent was not told when they booked for us that the restaurant was closed. We were told by reception to travel to town for our meals. For a resort charging a substantial fee per night , it was very disappointing.

Stayed here on recent trip to Tasmania. The hotel is in a great location in Coles Bay. Had an ocean view suite, which was very comfortable, with a small kitchen area including microwave and fridge, and a deck to sit out on. The suite was in a block of 3, but felt very private. Tea, coffee and biscuits were provided. Room had usual amenities. Small bathroom had underfloor heating which was very effective. We were lucky to be visited by wallabies on the deck area, which was lovely. Hotel has no dining room however there is a restaurant called Lure on the premises, where we ate both nights (would recommend booking as it is quite small). Coles Bay is a few minutes drive for other eateries and small convenience stores. Would stay here again.

Every place we stayed in Tasmania during our 2 week trip was top-notch, and Edge of the Bay was no exception. This was at the tail end of our trip and we were pleasantly surprised when we checked in. Our room was roomy and well-furnished with the most amazing view across Coles Bay. Only 5 minutes from Coles Bay township, the resort is a great base to explore Freycinet NP. In addition to a cruise to Wineglass Bay, we also managed to visit Cape Tourville Lighthouse and walk down to Sleepy Bay during our 2 night stay. The bird life is superb at the resort and the restaurant was impressive. This was a great spot to conclude our trip around Tassie.

A peaceful and beautiful resort. You can walk down to the Coles Bay and have a walk on the beach. Receptionist Louis was very helpful And the lady from cleaning was very polite and smiling. Try also the restaurant located behind the reception, Lure. Excellent dining experience.

While I cannot comment on the resort itself, I do want to commend management for its customer service. We had reservations for a two night stay and had prepaid for the entire cost of the stay. Unfortunately extenuating circumstances prevented us from making our entire trip to Australia. Management was extremely understanding and refunded the entire amount of our prepay. I was very worried about losing this large amount of money and do appreciate their compassion and understanding. We hope to stay at the resort once we are able to reschedule this trip.

What wonderful views of the Freycinet from this accommodation! Quiet location, 3 km from Coles Bay township. On-site independently run restaurant is first class. Wallabies a-bound (so to speak). Our 2-bedroom cabin was comfortable enough (not too sure in winter though) if a little dated for the money we paid. Some more lighting is needed to help with the longish walk to reception and the restaurant.

My husband and l booked a two week trip to Tasmania in November 2022 which we needed to rebook due to unforeseen family circumstances. We rebooked for March/April 2023. Our accommodation at Macq 1 Hobart, Pumphouse at Lake St Clair and Cradle Mountain Lodge could not have been more understanding and helpful with our change of dates with no additional charge for change of booking. This was certainly not the case with Edge of the Bay. We were charged an additional 50% of our booking (almost $600) due to their policy of cancellation within 42 days. We argued we did not cancel but rebooked. Nick Johnston (manager) was the rudest dismissive man l have met. After trying to argue our point he told us he was not here for guests. We were eventually told to leave Edge of Bay and find other accommodation on our last night of what was a fabulous holiday. Otherwise Edge of Bay looks tired. Room ok. Bed comfortable. Shower poor pressure. Needed to boil water to drink due to tannins and no bottled water provided. Intermittent wifi. Reasonable distance from town. Great views. Due to our unpleasant experience with manager l would never recommend Edge of Bay.

This is a review of the "secluded 2 bedroom cottage". I suspect the modern units (single bed?) would be quite different from our dated and somewhat uncomfortable "cottage". The cottage did have the facilities listed, by and large, although the listing stated tumble dryer in the unit, there was none. The guest laundry apparently had one but it was miles away and you had to pay to use it. Not what we signed up for. And the washer was old and we didn't trust our clothes in it, especially as there was a warning not to wash whites due to the tannin-coloured water. The kitchen had fittings and equipment which looked to be about 35 years old. It was all there but very rustic. Didn't appreciate having to boil drinking water so went out and bought bottles of water. Bathroom was a galley setup with shower/washing machine and tub etc all in a passage area. Shower curtain surrounded one in a clammy close embrace, no mixer tap- all just rather 1980s. There was wifi but it was so weak as to be useless much of the time. We had to switch to mobile data for any essential internet. The second bedroom was bare and only suitable for kids. Reception not very friendly. On the plus side, the main bed was comfortable and the view of the sea was great and the heat pump worked well and there was also a fan heater. Enjoyed the tame wallabies loping about. We thought we significantly overpaid for this rather rustic bach. We weren't particularly comfortable there and left a day early.

$400 a night and not told before we arrived that we had to boil our drinking water …, bad form . Seriously great position and nice rooms but high priced for the standard of information. Just a bottle or two of drinking water and a few extra tea bags and we would have been ok . Typical tassy sadly .. high $$& lackluster attention to detail and little pre check in info. Never again
