Perfect location, environment and facilities ”
We absolutely enjoyed our stay. Clean facilities with style, with convinient parking in front of entrance and greeny seclusive surroundings.
Last minute change - but cannot really fault”
Our 1 night accommodation elsewhere was cancelled at the last minute and we were rebooked to stay at Abs by the Bay by the original providers. We didn't know what to expect, but were pleasantly surprised when we got to the Skippers unit and little welcome note. It is a small studio unit, but super clean. Pleasantly decorated, comfy queen size bed and tea/coffee/microwave cupboard with minibar. The bathroom is light and spacious and again super clean. Well priced and ideal for 1 night stopovers and Lyn was very friendly and welcoming...
Cosy and friendly”
Owner is super friendly even though we reached after dark. The rooms are apparently marked with our names already so do look out for the signs of the room and your name on it when you enter the property. Parking area is spacious and room was cosy and toilet was equipped with the heater light so its super warm inside. There is no laundry area so you have to go laundry shops instead and it's not near the property.
And by the Bay is a great place to stay when visiting the Pirt Arthur area. ”
Brent & Lyn the owners make you very welcome. Near OzZoo which is great plus several places to get an evening meal nearby. We stayed 2 nights which you need to see everything nearby of interest. Best to pick up breakfast provisions etc in Sorell before arriving. We really enjoyed our stay here - the gardens are beautiful too.
Friendly Prace and nice backyard sunset ”
We stayed just one night there for visiting Port Arthur. Very friendly owner and we were welcome to have a look the backyard for the bay view. we enjoyed a beautiful sunset there. Room was comfortable and had everything we needed.
Many thanks for staying with us Naoko We are glad you had a nice stay Hope to see you again
Great location . Comfortable cozy unit ”
Friendly stafff due to late arrival found welcoming note on unit door from managers much appreciated highly recommend this accomodation
Hi Gary Many thanks for staying with us and we are glad you enjoyed your stay We hope to welcome you again Rgds :)
Though the room a bit small, we have a pleasant stay here. The lake is just behind the house. Beautiful view
Thankyou for staying with us Ho Glad you enjoyed your stay. Little Norfolk bay is the view from the front, which goes out to the ocean.
The owner was terrific and it was clean and the furnishings were ok. So, for a brief one-night stay this would be ok. However, this is not a place you want to spend any time. No views, near the highway, can hear the neighbors talking and tv, no atmosphere. Rather depressing to stay here between hikes and recover and cook a meal.
Family December Stay”
Staff were very friendly and helpful.
Cheap and cheerful”
Easy to communicate with staff, car parking right next to door. Shower was either crazy hot or icy cold but otherwise a large bathroom. Mattress was quite hard and springy. Despite the cold outside the room was really warm.
Beautiful property, at beautiful location. Owner very friendly.”
Extremely enjoyable stay.
Great cozy place and welcoming hosts”
We stayed at Skipper's and the place was excellent. Great, clean and standalone unit. The hosts was very welcoming and even gave us a personalised welcome note. Great place indeed
Very thin wall”
Abs by the Bay is generally a nice place to stay in, but the wall separating my unit from the next is so thin that you can literally hear every single word the other party is staying. This is the one important drawback. The rest is good.
Easy and convenient stay!”
We're here for our pre-wedding photoshoot and found this place to be convenient. Only no Wifi. :)
Everything was great
Abs by the Sea”
This was a lovely cabin. A bit smaller than expected, but adequate. A good location, not far from Port Arthur. We had a microwave in the kitchen which was handy.
Great homily feel”
Great little gem 10 minutes from port Arthur. Would stay here again.
small and delight full”
couple of things that had let down the skipper room. the was no kitchen stink. Had to do the dish in a bucket. And no oven don't know what the other rooms were like. Still had a kettle. fridge and microwave,etc,etc. And the other thing I didn't like much was in the bathroom. They had glass bricks for windows and there were no curtain in the bathroom. Felt like you got no privacy when going to have a shower or go to the toilet.All in all a pleasant stay for the night.
Very comfortable modern studio room”
We had a great overnight stay, relaxed well and the staff helped us a great deal with ideas for activities around the area.
The hotel has wonderful BBQ facilities. The garden is nice too. I had a great time over there. The room is clean, and the mini bar is great too. I would defintely stay at this hotel if visiting Port Author again. The hotel is very close to different attarcation point too
