The property was excellent and everything was provided to make us comfortable. It was a little difficult to contact the owners. The phone system not in good condition.

One night in Ross

Pros: Warm, spacious, well maintained and clean. The children loved the old-world charm/character.
Cons: Beds were a little firm and short for tall people.
Location: Relaxing, historical small town with great photograph opportunities, especially of the bridge.
Very clean, spacious, charismatic place. Loved the well equipped kitchen and attention to detail. Perfect for a family on a short or long stay. Would love to visit again. Clean and warm stay.

Pros: Nothing
Cons: Décor, shower and general property maintenance - one section of the floor appeared to be rotten and held together by the carpet
Location: Attractive street, well presented pub meal and well presented wool museum and history installation
Cramped bedroom with tacky décor. Shower also cramped and poorly designed. Garden not well maintained. Very small TV. Overall a disappointing stay.

Thaks for your comments. Your cottage is dated 1830 and has the atmosphere of a very old cottage. I admit we have an issue with part of our floor. As it isn't in an area people need to walk constantly we felt it wan't affect quality of guest's stay. It will be repaired when things arent as busy. We will look into the shower issue to see what the problem is. Re decore, we understand everyone has different approaches to decorating. I'm sorry ours didnt suit you.

Nice cottage in historic Ross township

Pros: Location was very good to split the journey from Devonport to Hobart
Cons: Too many Cupid pictures inside the cottage. Would be better to replace with pictures/ photos of Ross history
Location: Located in the centre of the historic town, very close too, shops and the hotel.
The cottage was quiet, well located and well fitted out.

Thankyou for your comments.

Old quaint

Was a very old cottage (circa 1830) which has many original features. We enjoyed a night there but longer might have been more of a challenge for those who enjoy today's convenience.

Last minute booking that was very pleasant. Lovely place close to town. Fairy wrens in the gardens were amazing.
