“Cosy Cabins in Tasmania (4 locations)”
Reviewed 4 January 2008

Just got back from Tasmania where I stayed in Cosy Cabin accommodation in 4 locations (Stanley, Strahan, Cradle Mountain and Mornington). My reviews of each;
Stanley: FABULOUS! Loved the town and loved the Cosy Cabins - its a bif caravan park style set up but its grassy and nice and right on the beach. Plenty of well kept facilities and very friendly staff. Cabin was very clean and well appointed. Highly reccommend!
Strahan: Cabin and location were very good. Facilities are a little older but still good. Cabin was very clean and well appointed.
Cradle Mountain: Rustic, bush setting, feels very private. Cabin was small but very clean.
Mornington (Hobart): Cabin itself was the best of all 4 - larger, carpeted, wood heater and well appointed. HOWEVER - this is the worst location I have ever seen - its kind of wedged in the 'v' made by two busy roads. Not a blade of grass to be seen in the park - just rocks. Spa/sauna was out of order, laundry was dirty and reception lady was abrupt and unhelpful. We had booked for 3 nights (sight unseen) but left after the first night (forfeting our money) because it was so bad. Pub & resturant referred to as being close by is in fact next door and is very seedy and dodgy. I would avoid this one!

  • Liked — Gorgeous settings (most) and very very clean cabins.
  • Disliked — Location of Cosy Cabin at Mornington

Stayed in a couple of cosy cabins on our stay in december 2006. All where fantastic value for money. Great for families as we had the 2 bedroom cabins. We stayed in the cosy cabins in stanley, risdon (hobart) and launceston . They were all new and clean. They were all having major upgrading of amenities etc whilst we were there. They all have a good playground area and the boys favourite was risdon as they LOVED the jumping pillow. Risdon is on the outskirts of hobart but it is all of a 10 min drive into the city centre. These cabins were a lot better then average and some of the cabins had extras like spas etc. You will need a car though as these are not close to the cities or transport. All reception staff where helpful wtih tours etc and local information.

  • Liked — how new it all was
  • Disliked — distance from city but not a great concern

I am normally a 5 star kind of girl however this time we thought we would "rough it" in a SPA CABIN. It was so much better then I was expecting. For $157 a night we got a "cosy cabin" with AUSTAR TV, Kitchen, Bathroom with spa and two rooms (one with double bed and bunk and one with Queen bed). The wild life where everywhere. We went walking at night with a touch around the cabins and saw heaps of different animals - we even had a possum try to share our cabin with us!!
Highly recommended for a nice stay at Cradle Mountain that will not break the budget.

  • Liked — Close to nature
  • Disliked — The brown water in the spa
  • Stayed March 2007, travelled as a couple

First of all, Cradle Mountain is spectacular - a must see if you visit Tasmania! Cosy Cabins is a good budget option compared to some of the other more expensive offerings in the area. We stayed in a spa cottage. It was lovely. It was more like a wooden caravan than a cottage but it was nice all the same. It had a fire which was lovely as the weather there can be unpredictable (be sure to pack warm clothes and an anorak). The spa was great, especially after our long walks. However, the water was a kind of muddy brown! We bathed in it though and we were fine. Just add some bubbles! It's because they take it directly from rivers nearby and only filter the kitchen taps. The bathroom isn't the Hilton or anything though so don't expect too much. It was fine for us. Cradle Mountain is beautiful, try the Dove Lake walk. We had a wombat come right up to us while we were eating lunch! We also had wallabies coming right up to our cabin door! You can camp at the Cosy Cabin site but if you do, beware, it gets freezing cold at night! We were glad to come back to our warm fire and spa bath!!

We stayed at the Cosy Cabins for one night. The cabin was very spacious and pretty clean. You must arrive before 6pm because the office closes. The standard cabin had a room with a queen bed and a curtain that could be drawn to seperate it from the dining/kitchen area. There was a second room with four bunk beds and the bathroom. The shower and toilet rooms were seperate. There was only one faucet with treated water, but that didn't cause too many problems. We headed to one of the other lodges for dinner. Overall a decent, yet basic experience.
