We had the Tasmanian Oak studio for 3 people. Very great view and the Opportunity to go fishing just on the Jetty, they give you Rods free of charge. There is underfloor heating, but I'm glad it wasn't that cold. It wasn't really warm but there is an extra Heater for the colder days so that helps., We thought the price was good as well. Would stay there again

Wonderful experience. The view from our room across the bay was just beautiful. Self contained studio including stove and microwave. Comfortable bed. Underfloor heating and electric blanket for cooler weather. Friendly and helpful manager. Maybe a little on the expensive side but definitely worth it. We loved our cottage and didn't want to leave. Dover is a small town
but has an IGA for basics and a couple of eateries. We highly recommend the Post
Office Restaurant.

We were very pleasantly surprised when we booked into our unit, after a long day of travelling it was beautifully warmed, luxurious walking on warm carpet(underfloor heating) and the beds were so comfortable, handmade soap was a lovely little extra, also the water pressure in the shower was fantastic compared to many other places we have stayed.

Reception was very welcoming and friendly, and we even stayed an extra night.
I have travelled all over Australia and stayed in many high end accomodation, Driftwood Cottages definitely measure up. We will be back to stay very soon .

My Partner and I spent our anniversary at the Beach House. We arrived a little early but our key was waiting for us just as mentioned and we were able to start our romantic getaway without seeing a soul (which we did not mind at all!)
The fire was stoked, jacuzzi was bubbling and a complimentary bottle of wine and fresh bread welcomed us nicely.
There was plenty of wood provided, and the veiw from the main room, lounge and jacuzzi/deck was mesmerizing (we had to pinch ourselves a few times!!) Our only wish is that we could have stayed longer!
We spent many hours kayaking and enjoying the beautiful environment when we weren't lounged in front of the warm fire or sipping bubbly on the deck.
We will definitely be back! :)

My wife and I, Victorians on a month's holiday in Tasmania, came to Dover about half way through our time away. We were offered a choice of accommodation, but on our first look at the Beach House, decided that it was for us. A magnificent view across the water, two generous bedrooms, a modern bathroom, a well-equipped kitchen, a brand-new barbecue and even a spa (which we didn't use). Two highlights - a potbellied wood-fired heater, and a welcoming gift of a loaf of delicious bread. The hostess, Rachel, was extremely welcoming and helpful, as was her replacement Marie when Rachel was away in the last couple of days of our stay. Roadworks, referred to in another review, did make access a little more difficult, but this is hardly Driftwood's fault, and all the other excellent aspects of our stay far more than compensated. If we were to return to that part of Tasmania, we would definitely want to stay at Beach House.

Room Tip: Views across the water are fabulous

Hi Barrie B, good to hear that you enjoyed your stay and thank you for taking the time to write us a review. You'll be happy to know that the roadworks are all finished now, and we have a lovely new road in front, completing our superb outlook over the bay!
