“Explorers Cottages”
Reviewed 6 April 2014

We stopped for one night at the Explorers Cottages. Firstly the key pick up wasn't 100% clear. They are a bit away from everywhere, and not well kept externally. But they can be booked for 1 night which is rare on Bruny and the inside of the cottages are basic and reasonably clean. We had a great big late lunch at the pub so no dinner was necessary. Also recomment the vineyard nearby which looked like it also had good lunches. The lighthouse was a pleasant trip as well with amazing views.

Nice comfortable beds plus electric blankets. Basic cabin in great location plus a short drive to hotel for meals. Good value. Very comfortable. There was only two of us but would suit a family. Bit dated.

From the outside the rooms looked ordinary and dated but inside open and modern and clean with a great sea view. Very quiet. The pub with great meals and atmosphre next door and friendly and helpful staff.

We enjoyed our stay at Kestral Studio. Everything was very clean and brand new, the bed was comfortable & we loved lounging on our deck. Would have loved a few more cooking staples to work with (i.e. olive oil) but apart from that it was easy to cook in the kitchen with their great appliances. Definitely visit Hotel Bruny for a great meal while you're there!

We have just enjoyed a 3 night stay in one of the cottages. We found the accommodation to be clean and comfortable and enjoyed the view and afternoon sun from the rear windows of the cottage. Yes, the grounds could probably do with a spruce up as the last reviewer has noted, but this is BI where everything seemed a bit wild and wooly. Three nights seemed to be a good amount of time to spend on BI as there is quite a bit to do and see especially if you are interested in doing some walks. We would recommend this accommodation to others.

We stayed in Explorers Cottage 1 for 2 nights in summer and had all four seasons during that time! The fire was nice and view great. Cottage could do with a thorough clean and spruce up, maybe tat happens during winter?

For the money we expected better facilities and generally the place was also a bit dated. The outside could be doing with a serious spruce up and window clean. Having bought some nice steaks very disappointed that the BBQ was not fit for use and had actually asked that specific question when checking in. Was a nice touch to have electric blankets and a wood burning stove all prepped for use.
