Perfect for our requirements. Quiet, beautiful views, lots of room & the children enjoyed a spa bath. Small hiccup with internet but I'm sure that will be rectified

A very highly recommended accommodation option, in a central location. close to Hobart. We were warmly welcomed by the owner, given a brief tour and left to enjoy our stay. Very generous food provisions provided and being able to eat breakfast surrounded by bird life and overlooking the water was a huge treat for us. We will be returning as soon as possible!

Well appointed, in peaceful setting

Pros: Beautiful setting on the banks of the Derwent, very comfortable and well positioned for a number of attractions.
Location: Easy driving distance to Hobart CBD and waterfront. Across the river from MONA and a pleasant drive to the historic town of Richmond.
A well appointed cottage with high spec finishes and several welcoming touches such as the block of chocolate in the fridge. A range of breakfast foods and general condiments included. A beautiful setting on the banks of the Derwent River and within easy driving distance of the Hobart CBD and waterfront. Hosts live next door and are on hand if needed.

Paradise on the Derwent

We were overwhelmed by the hospitality and comfort provided by Otago Cottages. The facilities were outstanding, and the owners go out of their way to provide extra homely comforts. A faultless stay! Oh and the view is stunning! Highly recommended!

Perfect getaway

Pros: Cleanliness, peaceful,views,isolation, the bedroom upstairs with the roof windows.
Cons: Nothing at all.
Location: short 20 min drive into Hobart and the airport. Set right on the east bank of the Derwent River.
Otago cottage was more than we could have hoped for. Beautifully quiet setting with stunning views. The cottage is just wonderful with every need catered for. Including goods for breakfast ! The hosts take pride in what they do and it shows. We would definitely stay again while in Hobart.
