“Smugglers Rest”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

Dover is a perfect location to enjoy the area. With the Tahune airwalk a highlight. My only regret was that we couldnt stay longer. The large unit was kid friendly, comfortable, clean and cosy, cost affective and casual.

What a pleasant place this was, lovely units over looking a beautiful bay. The units were very comfortable well equiped and clean, would recommend visit a great spot to use as a base for the Huon Valley

Smugglers Rest is a great place in which to base yourself when travelling the southern region of Tasmania - the unit was large, clean and the beds were comfortable with all the creatures of home available to you. The closeness of the wharf, beach and eatery's (RSL) makes this place a most for this region.

You can't pass up the location beside the water and only a stone's throw to the jetty & boat ramp. Plenty of parking available and the staff are always friendly and willing to give advice/information on where to eat and what places to visit. They even provide you with bikes & fishing rods if you feel the need !

We stayed here a couple of nights while exploring the south west of beautiful Tasmania, and can thoroughly recommend Smugglers Rest. Our room was spotlessly clean, quiet and comfortable and Glenda was very helpful. During our 2-week tour of Tasmania, we stayed in many different places, but Smugglers Rest tops the list.

Great base to visit the southern region. Our unit was large, well appointed and clean. Bed very comfy. Glenda was extremely helpful with travel advice - making phone calls, etc. We borrowed a book from her about the local history and enjoyed the read. Extremely good value for money. Only issue was a slightly noisy air conditioner - but we turned this off when going to sleep. We would certainly return when next in Tasmania.

We love the peaceful beauty of Dover. Great base to visit Hastings Caves & Thermal Spas. Handy neat self contained accommodation near the beach. Service was excellent. Unfortunately we had to shorten our stay due to our toddler injuring himself. Glenda couldn't have been more helpful and we truly appreciated her assistance and genuine concern.
We look forward to staying longer next time we are down that way.
