“Worth Every Penny”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014 via mobile

My husband and I have stayed at Saffire twice now. To keep it short and simple, Saffire offers a unique and extraordinary experience that makes you never want to leave. The ambience, the views, the architecture, the comfort and the feeling of being waited on hand and foot is worth the price tag.

The location and property are stunning, but it’s the staff at Saffire that takes the cake. Most engaging, generous, and well-communicated hotel team I’ve encountered the globe over. From the lovely welcome we got at Hobart airport to all the staff at our meals (Kelli, Matt, Linn, Jess), the Guest Managers (Ben, Micah, Hayden, and Russell), and the guides (Joel and Will), all staff contact was on point, kind and efficient.

My family was astounded. The team read body language well, made eye contact often, and related crucial information to each other in a timely manner. There was no need to repeat anything and preferences were remembered without fail. It was like family, minus the drama. We stayed four nights and will return.

Tasmania and Saffire took our breaths away. They also made us chubby as the food is creative, fresh, and delicious. I suppose, we gush because we love.

This was our second trip to Saffire, this time was a surprise organised by my husband for my birthday.
I honestly thought I could not be more impressed than I was by our first visit. How wrong was I!
From the moment we were welcomed back upon arrival, the Happy Birthday written in the courtyard pebbles, the card and sparkling wine cooling in our room, to the amazing treatment with a beautiful card and gift from the lovely girls at the Spa who remembered all my details from last time, I was amazed!
As others have said the food is to die for ( and I am incredibly hard to please!), the service at lunch, dinner and breakfast was outstanding with nothing too much trouble.

We loved our time at Saffire and recommend it to anyone looking for an absolutely perfect couples getaway. Worth every cent!

We will be back.....very soon!!

We celebrated our wedding anniversary here and everything was first class.
The service was brilliant, warm and friendly without being stuffy, and all staff from Management to the cleaners showed a genuine care for our welfare. Everything was taken care of with a minimum of fuss and our only complaint is we didn't stay long enough.
Also the architecture is stunning and waking up in the morning to look out at Coles bay and the Hazards is awesome.
well done Saffire we'll be back

It has all be said before, amazing location, stunning architecture, every little detail covered. Hugh leads an impressive team who know what anticipatory service means. Highly recommend joining in the walks, oyster farm, cruise experiences. Such a rich history. A wonder if Silas Coles pinched himself to make sure it was real too!

expectations can be very high when the price is high, but Saffire surpassed our expectations and never disappointed us. Staff are outstanding, with a high level of friendliness, knowledge, responsiveness and courtesy. The dining experiences for all meals were outstanding and really highlighted seasonal, local produce. The wines to match each course were lovely, varied and well-chosen. Cocktails and pre-dinner snacks in front of the fire were lots of fun. We also did a cooking demonstration, which we loved. The spa is expensive, but was a lovely experience. The walks were a real treat, with a great 14km one around the Hazards (which can be seen from all rooms and the main building) plus a shorter one up to the lookout over Wineglass Bay. Rooms are amazing - all have terrific views. The architecture of Saffire is wonderful. Go. Seriously - one of the most special places I have ever stayed.

Room Tip: No bad rooms.

We just loved our time at Saffire. The setting is amazing and the architecture is impressive. Dining was wonderful but the most tremendous part was the staff. Everyone was friendly, helpful, informative,professional, and entertaining. Where did they find these people? We were completely pampered. Loved the food, beverages, tours, reception....it was all fabulous. Not a single complaint. Not one. Except that we couldn't stay longer! We enjoyed being there in the off-season even though weather was a bit rough; we had quite a windy and chilly experience. Didn't matter!
