9.0.Superb.
  • 10.0.Exceptional

    The heritage boatman's cottage was beautifully appointed with modern kitchen and bathroom facilities, heating in all rooms and a very comfortable queen bed. Surrounded by the lawns of the historic pilot station and just a few steps from the cafe, museum and Pilots Bay, we enjoyed a very relaxing and cosy stay.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Magnificent view from the sunroom. The house is now very dated and requires maintenance, the large number of stains on the carpeted areas is not a good look. Installing a dishwasher wouldn't go astray, asking the guests to wash up the crockery when you are charging $300 a night is a bit rich. Providing 1 and a half toilet rolls for 7 people is unacceptable and smacks of penny pinching.

    A big surprise for my kids to stay as a lighthouse keeper. Amazing views for sure and finding penguins in the yard is a bonus. Room is clean and tidy and equipped with everything we need. We will stay absolutely stay again if we are lucky enough.

    Unique location, windswept and handy for seeing the penguins but a bit remote to other attractions and amenities

    Fun visit

    Husband and I stayed there only one night and would have loved to have stayed for a few nights at least. Area is very interesting and historical. Home we stayed in was well fitted and extremely comfortable and clean. Key collection after hours was easy. Museum was fascinating. We intend returning for a longer visit.
