Hello Jana, As discussed when you arrived, we apologised that our property and the room you chose to book did not live up to your expectations and was not what you were hoping for. It was made very clear to us at the time that what we offered was not what you wanted which is fine. We all have different tastes and expectations and we allowed you to cancel your reservation without any financial penalty. We thought we parted on mutually agreeable terms which is why we’re disappointed to see that you have rated your experience with Ashdowns a 1 out of 5 which seems a bit unfair considering you were on the property for less than 5 minutes and didn’t actually stay to experience all that we offer. To any potential guests considering making a booking with us and seeing this 1 out of 5 rating, we hope you will consider that our average rating on Wotif is an excellent 4.5 out of 5. We completely understand that if on arrival and prior to check-in, you think that Ashdowns of Dover does not meet your expectations; we will allow you to cancel without penalty, no hard feelings. We are in the service industry and our number one goal is to provide the best experience we possibly can for our guests so that no-one leaves disappointed. We trust you feel you can book with confidence.

A perfect experience. A perfect B&B. Gary was a fantastic host who went above and beyond for us. The property is beautiful and peaceful, the bedroom pristine, the bed devine and the breakfast stunning! This is my second time at Ashdowns. It is a wonderful advertisement for the south of Tasmania and Tasmania as a whole. (The only gripe we had was that we didn't see a platypus in the brook but I can hardly hold Gary accountable for that ;o) I will recommend Ashdowns to my friends and colleagues. I can't recommend Ashdowns enough. We will return.

Lovely rooms each with their own story. Owners are friendly and super helpful. Gorgeous views. They allowed my 3yr old to feed the chickens and sheep. Massive breakfast provided in the morning. Could not rate high enough! Would absolutely go back again.

Hi Angela, Thank you for taking the time to leave such a thoughtful review. We're so pleased that the three of you enjoyed your night away in Dover and got to interact with the farm animals. It's wonderful to see how much fun kids have feeding the animals. We're delighted too that you enjoyed your breakfast and that it set you up for the day. We hope to welcome you all back here someday. Thanks again.
