“While the Freycinet Retreat is located in Coles Bay, one of Australia’s most popular holiday destinations, it’s surprising to see it beat some of the bigger hotels in Hobart, suggesting good customer service is not limited to our large cities.”

“We have worked hard to set and maintain a high standard, so it is wonderful to know that this has been appreciated by guests,” they said.
