The location, views, architecture, food, drink, art displays, tours, beach...all fantastic and worth the money. But what really sets Saffire apart from the rest is their staff: friendly, entertaining, professional, personal, very knowledgeable, funny....the best service we were lucky enough to experience in recent years. Thanks for a really wonderful time!

We were persuaded by a special offer to Tasmanian residents to spend two nights at this outstanding resort. From the moment we drove into the premises we were treated royally being greeted by a very polite and helpful staff member. On identifying who we were, we were addressed by most staff by our names for the period we were there....

An incredible experience. A stay at Saffire does not come cheap, but it is absolutely worth it. The accomodation is gorgeous and spacious, the views are lovely and the service is impeccable - once you have checked in, every single staff member knows your name for the entire stay. The food at the restaurant is lovely and would satisfy any...

Rarely do we wish that TripAdvisor allowed a 6-star review. We have stayed in a number of fine inns and lodges in our lifetime. But for the sheer quality of service, this place sets a new benchmark. Let’s say this right up-front: we WILL be returning to Saffire Freycinet as soon as our time and resources allow. Writing this Review...

Definitely a superb resort. Beautifully built and well maintained. Service was excellent and, especially considering the remoteness of Coles Bay, the staff were all of a very high standard. Maybe it is because we are Tasmanians and spoilt by the standard of the local cuisine, but the only negative we found was the food on offer. While very good it...

We stayed at Piermont Retreat for 2 nights and ate at the Saffire Restaurant both nights. After the first night, we just had to dine here again without hesitation. Beautifully presented food of the finest local Tasmanian produce - they really do produce some amazing dishes and highlight the wonderful tastes of Tasmania. Dining at its best, and a wonderful...

We stayed for two nights at Saffire in Freycinet having driven from Hobart. It is a very scenic 2/3 hour drive through the countryside, past local vineyards and seaside communities. The welcome we received was warm and welcoming. The Main lobby area is quite spectacular and 'state of the art', with wonderful sculptures and locally crafted art. The architecture is...

Second stay at this wonderful establishment. We will return next year and probably every year. We have stayed in lodges all over the world and this is the best. We are so lucky to have it close to home! Go - you will never think about the cost, it's worth every penny.

I challenge anyone to find a single thing that could be improved at this resort. On arrival the car keys are swapped for a glass of champagne and you're told that incidental things like getting your bags to your room or parking the car are no longer your problem. Every single detail has been thought of including specially printed personalised...

Saffire Freycinet has always been on our to-do list and although we only spent the one night there, it certainly lived up to our expectations. The setting is idyllic and the service is of the highest standard. nothing was too much trouble for the staff and they make the whole affair one of those once in a lifetime experiences. No,...
