The reviews of this accommodation vary greatly, clearly different expectations and perhaps different units. We stayed in 'The Willows' for two nights at the end of an anti-clockwise two weeks around Tasmania - wonderful to pull up short of Hobart after coming through from Strahan in rain.
Out of Hobart, yes, but an easy drive of an hour to the airport and 20 minutes from MONA. A pleasant country town - find Pulpit lookout for views (across the river) and the point where the little Lachlan River enters the Derwent for platypus and other wildlife. A great walk built along the river bank.
Our unit - The Willows - was very comfortable and with subtleties of design which grew on us - not a classy first impression wearing off quickly. Very well equipped, quality appliances and with nice supplies of all the basics of cereals, bread, milk, eggs, juice... (Replying to the reviewer who was disappointed at supplies:– after circling Tasmania, surely she, like we, was travelling with favourite foods?)
BUT please note, this unit, with internal steps up to bed, down to bath and kitchen, IS NOT for people with mobility problems.
