Staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. The view was stunning from our room and it was so peaceful and relaxing. A great place to unwind and to get away. The food in the restaurant was fresh and delicious. Our entrees of calamari in puffed quinoa and the duck liver parfait were to die for!

I would highly recommend this place! So many people suggested Frecynet Lodge, inside the park, however it looked like it needed some TLC and the rooms did not seem to have a view. Edge of the Bay has been newly renovated. The rooms are very spacious. The views are amazing. WE stayed in #31 which had a particularly good view....

The resort is in a beautiful location and is very convenient to Freycinet National Park. There were several wallabies on the property, which was fun for the kids and adults. Also the restaurant at the resort is very good. I strongly recommend it.

We adored the spot, superb views across to The Hazards at FReycinet National Park. The pink sunset on the first night was even more beautiful. Restaurant and food excellent. We stayed 4 nights and that was expensive. Disappointed in the softness of the bed and the settee which was a bit limp and outdated. Room itself has an interesting layout...

Stayed a couple of nights on my own (to do a bit of walking and sample the local food and wine) in this perfect location a few minutes north of Coles Bay 'town' looking across to the Hazards. The attractive hotel has a relaxed eco-feel to it with the low level accommodation located discreetly among the bush. The room (suite)...

We stayed at Edge of the Bay with our toddler in January in a family cabin and loved the roomy cabins, secluded feel, kitchen facilities (essential for toddler) and outdoor BBQ area. All of these were topped by the amazing, amazing views. We normally stay in much more "modern" looking places, but are so pleased we stayed here this time....

This resort is situated in the most beautiful location. We have visited this resort 3 times over a long period of time. We hoped that after its renovation that the attention to its clients would have improved. We did not get the accommodation that we booked and paid for. Staff were totally unhelpful in trying to rectify the situation. They...

The room overlooked Coles Bay and Freycinet mountains, with a sandy beach just in front for swimming. Spacious suite and continental breakfast delivered to the room. Greedy wallabies hanging around the deck hoping for handouts. We were lucky to get this as had not booked and the area was very busy - book ahead!

View from room absolutely spectacular. Restaurant was exceptional. Could not fault this location and would throughly recommend. We went down from Melbourne for a 2 night long weekend starting on the Friday. The stunning weather also helped make it an exceptional weekend

Lovely location overlooking the bay and mountains of Freycinet. Had a suite room which was large with a deck overlooking the bay and the mountains. And the friendly wallabies came a calling. The rooms are well furnished with a comfortable bed and a big bathroom. There is only one tap in the kitchenette with fresh rain water. All the other...
