Really clean , very pretty and quiet area
Only Thing I didn't like is the pillow on the bed had a slight musty smell
Very spacious and modern furnishings. Everything you needed in the kitchen. Books and DVDs to borrow, comfortable bed and electric blanket. Great walk along the beach in Dover from right outside the door.
The studio description said there was wifi in the room, which turned out tobe false. Wifi connection closer to office only, I brought this up with management and they said they will amend the room description. This was the only problem though; I was very impressed with the accommodation otherwise.
Really nice apartment style place with lavender walls. Would def recommend!!
Easy to find, well equiped, comfy bed and lounge. Friendly staff.
Staff was friendly and helpful
The unit was very clean and inviting. It felt like home as soon as we walked in. The view from our lounge was brilliant, water all around , boats and islands. I would recommend Smugglers Rest to anyone wishing to go South.
There was nothing I didn't like.
Advertising leads you to believe that units had waterfront views which isn't the case.
Ida Bay Train ride was a awesome adventure and views was breath taking as the info of the surrounding areas. The driver was very helpful and friendly as the ladies at Ida Bay Cafe.. Yummy Hot Chocolates..
Driving all the way to Cockrel Bay late afternoon and on arrival finding the last gate locked and a sign stating times which were 10am too 4pm which wasn't mentioned 1 hr back up at the first Sign. Very disappointing and time waisting!! Also the road there was very rough and in need of grading. National Parks should inform tourist by using the information centres through out the region on the times and conditions of the roads..
Pretty view from our apartment, comfy bed & the most delicious pizzas from the town.
Management were not there upon our arrival, they had left our room unlocked for us. Tiniest television in apartment and being woken up early by small children in a near by chalet. Got charged $20 extra for forgetting to put away 2 dishes that we had washed. Disgusting stains on our sheets.
A beautiful spot with good access to water. Well-stocked and well laid out cottage.
You couldn't see the water that well from the cottage, unless you stood up at the window. The cottages also were a bit close together.
This is a really nice small motel type set-up, only seconds from the waters edge. The owner gave me good advice about timing and how to get to the place, which was really helpful. it was comfortable, of a good size and good value.
No chopping board for food prep.
Felt like we had come home after a day out. Great location and view. Spotless and well equipped. Staff were low key and helpful. If you are thinking of staying in this area, you will be delighted with the Smugglers Rest. 5 stars without the hype.
The view ,clean,air con,comfortable bed.
No staff at reception,when I arrived they seemed surprised that I was coming that day.had to wait while the wife rang her husband to see which room I was to stay in ,and then I had to call again,to see which room I had to stay in.no TV reception.next morning went to pay ,no one around again.had to ring again,the woman seemed supprised I was leaving ,so once again she had to ring husband to come down so I could pay .he was very nice,but I,m sorry I won,t be staying there again.for 150 dollars I expect some service.have stayed on Gold Coast ect,in much bigger appartments with washer ,dryers ect.for that price.with views just as good.
The units very lovely and had a wonderful view of the bay
It was very close to the beach, quiet, the unit was clean and tidy and just what we needed for a short stay. The bed was the most comfortable that I slept in, in the whole of Tasmania.
Living area uncomfortable
The view on the web was so much nicer,parking was minimal,overpriced
Dover is sleepy village south of Hobart. This place has made the most of the view. The accommodation is spacious and comfortable. A good place to relax and explore the south.
Smugglers rest was a pleasant quiet relaxing place in Dover that we enjoyed immensely. We used it as a base for our exploration of the far south of Tasmania enjoying the forest drives, hastings caves, tahune forest and white water rafting on the picton river with Aardvark adventures.
I have stayed in many places and this has to be the biggest disaapintment. We planned to stay there for our whole 9 days...until we saw it. Painted brick walls-old buildings.no phone in the room-Wi fi password was given but never turned on so we were left with no communication with the outside world.The website makes it look like something else-not a true reflection of the actual place. No refreshing of the towels daily or cleaning of room.Nothing in Dover to attract tourists unless you are into fishing.There is an RSL .Very disappointed overall and would not recommend it. Staff were pleasant.
Smugglers did not reserve the room that we booked. We booked the room that can stay 8 person in max. However, Smugglers offered the room for 4 persons. We've to stay in two rooms and paid extra cost at aud110 which is 40% over our budget.
