We are very appreciative of accomodation that was offered to us as a family with the recent fires in the south of the state, Tas. On three occasions we stayed at Ocean View, a beautiful self contained family apartment. Clean and well maintain, central to all services. A big

We spent two very comfortable nights in the Beach House. The combination of the wood heater (lit for us when we arrived) and heat pump meant we were toasty warm. The fresh loaf of bread, milk, butter and mini bar were appreciated, as we didn’t have to rush to the shop. The

Hey there 50rob1 Glad to hear that you enjoyed your visit to Dover and Tassie's Far South. Sorry that you found the underfloor heating difficult- as you say it is slow to respond and is therefore set to a comfortable temperature to suit most. You would have noticed supplementary heating and cooling devices to tweak for those who like the studio warmer or cooler. Surprised that you didn't notice the complimentary tissues but next time please just ask! We do also provide complimentary nespresso pods for the coffee machine so there is never a need to drink International Roast unless you are an instant coffee fan! Hope that we can welcome you back to our lovely region at another time- you may like to have a look at one of our other options for next time.
