Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything about the Shingles is marvellous, gorgeous setting..even saw a platypus in the river. Veronica is just lovely, we felt completely at home and chose to eat in our rooms instead of dining out,so as not to miss the wonderful views and ambience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Veronica has everything provided at the cottage that you would need - from an umbrella at the doorstep, to fresh juice and milk (in glass bottles) in the fridge, with various types of cereal, bread, jam etc. Lots of games scattered throughout and lovely personal touches. The view is superb and is such a lovely place to relax, whether that be enjoying the early morning views of the Derwent or sitting back at night.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from We did not stay at the Shingles as we decided to increase the length of our stay at Strahan for a day. Our decision was relayed to the Shingles more than a month before we commence our trip and the response from the management was that they would retain our deposit for when we came to Tasmania again. We may well do so but, as we are getting older, we cannot be sure of this. In view of this, I asked if they could return my deposit. I have not had any response to my request.
