This has to be one of the best places to stay in Coles Bay. Forget the more expensive places this is heaven Full view of the Hazards with your own piece of beach, a short walk to the restaurant and bar which serves marvelous food again with a great view especially for sunset drinks. Lovely helpful staff, lots of wildlife...

Staying at the Edge of the Bay in Coles Bay...what a magical Resort looking out from our room onto The Hazards and Freycinet Peninsula. Extremely comfortable and well appointed...very comfortable beds and very close to the little township of Coles Bay. Would definitely recommend.

Stayed there one night and was overall very happy with the location, cleanliness, standard of the room. At time the room could be slightly bigger but all in all was of a quality standard, very clean and the location was really nice being so close to the beach etc.

I was very pleased to have my low expectations dashed by this resort. On previous Tas trips, when staying in wilderness areas in resorts, I've felt like a trapped animal, led in by the bait of advertising, but quickly discovering underwhelming, even sloppy standards. Edge of the Bay has reset my views, for the better. Success in the quiet, tranquil...

This is a relatively new restaurant. The place has great views, so I would recommend visiting while it is still daylight. The mussels in coconut broth was delicious as a starter and our dessert - Berry cheese cake was delicious. I would recommend the place for dinner.

I booked for 2 nights, however our plans changed so we only wanted to stay one night. The lady at the front the desk said we would be charged the full price of the room u less she cod rebook it, which she did. And our rate would also go up to 268 (40 more than what I initially paid)...

Stayed at Edge of the Bay in beach front apartment. Serene, quiet and beautiful views. Rooms were heated well. Best star gazing from the private deck and we had the beach to ourselves and easy walk to Coles bay township from beach. Highly recommend.

Great location. Rooms are large with open views of the bay. Meal was excellent and great watching dusk descend over the hills and water. Pleasant staff, happy to chat with customers. Surprisingly no breakfast service (hence a 4 not 5). Good for access to the National Park.

We arrived without a booking and were offered a great standby rate (winter so off season). The room was so well appointed, under floor hearing was an added bonus! The view from our room allowed us to wake to sunset over the Hazards with a wallaby grazing out front. The food in the restaurant is also delicious! Would definitely stay...

Gorgeous view from our ocean suite. Staff very friendly and wonderful restaurant. Only downfall was the water pressure in the shower was very low! You can see the Hazards from the room, a gorgeous backdrop to your holiday. The bed was extremely comfortable, the heating was great.
