We had a wonderful stay for a few days. The studio is spacious with good equiped kitchenware, ceiling vent for heating in the room and ceiling heater light in the bathroom. Besides, the room is able to receive sunshine for the whole day when it's sunny. The location is just at the edge of a small town Sheffield where you...

Arriving in the small town of Sheffield we were warmly welcomed by the staff of the Kentish Hills Retreat. Although we arrived early we were able to access our room to drop off our bags before driving out to cradle mountain. Upon our return from site seeing the wonderful staff were very helpful in recommending places to eat and visit.

We absolutely LOVED our stay here. It's such a simple motel but has a special charm. We stayed only two nights on our honeymoon but it was definitely a highlight. So quiet and homely, we felt so comfortable. The room was nice and spacious, a decent sized bathroom, nice little kitchenette. Lovely customer service. Good spot. Would recommend!

This was an adequate motel for a road trip with another couple but no more than that. Average decor. Clean, though the sign insisting we do our own washing up was a little off putting (I realise some may need promoting but it's overkill!) Laundry was useful. No breakfast available.

Loved this place! The rooms were clean and very spacious with a living area and kitchen too. The location was very serene- when you step outside you're right in the countryside with the hills in the distance and alpacas close by! There's also a nice little garden area with BBQ facilities which would've made a great picnic if we stayed...

Sheffield is a lovely place. We booked here thinking that we would be arriving at about 7pm after being on the spirit of Tasmania. Unfortunately the boat was very late and we did not get there until after 9.30pm. The owners were fine with the late arrival. It was a comfy and clean place to stay and I wish we...

Good location - just around the corner of main street in town centre, next to gas station for quick refill. Room is spacious with lots of farm animals next door. Fully equipped kitchen for self cooking. You can find all kinds of food/fruit in IGC and veggie shop in town centre!

Lovely motel with friendly staff. Would have loved to stay longer and explore more of the area. Very comfortable after walking Dove Lake and surrounds. Tried to have Chinese for dinner - was booked out on a Tuesday night. Settled for pizza at the takeaway - hmm wasn't the best. Lovely town with beautiful murals. Motel and town well worth...

Beautiful little country retreat; yet still close enough to drive into Devonport. Informative man at check-in who knew his town and surrounds, offering information about Sheffield and the area. Good room amenities; ample for a few nights' stay. All in all very good, clean, and well-presented rooms and property. Well looked after grounds. Will definitely be back at some point!...

Awesome wheelchair access - you need to go UP 2 steps to get to the disabled room. DOES NOT HAVE WHEELCHAIR ACCESS!!!! Is not a retreat, just a boring motel. No hand fed alpacas like on website - no animals. Website was very misleading.
