Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    We stayed for two nights. The room was large and comfortable , 2 windows, fireplace and bathroom beautifully decorated in the period as is the whole manor. I loved the colours used throughout. There is a pleasant dining room overlooking the lovely well kept gardens continental style breakfast provided with a kitchen for quests to cook their breakfast if required. For me this gave a relaxed, friendly feel and gives a chance to meet other guests and share experiences and to learn about the history of the house from the very helpful hostess. There is also a comfortable sitting room with port and chocolates, something I have not seen in a while and very relaxing after our evening meal. Parking is in the grounds so convenient. We very much enjoyed our stay and highly recommend.

    This Reserve is located only about five kilometres outside of Hobart next to two reservoirs that were first constructed in the 1860's. The Sandy Bay Rivulet runs in front of the reservoirs. A roadway, single lane in some spots, snakes along the edge of the reservoirs.

    There were a total of 12 numbered BBQ sites (some undercover) each with their own parking areas. I understand that there is a site were you can book these at a cost.

    There was seating and playground equipment but we did not see anyone engaging in water activities. Also it appeared that dogs were not allowed.

    There were however several good walking paths. We walked up to the man-made Gentile Annie Falls, although it had been a long time since water had flowed over them.

    We thought it was a fantastic family picnic and BBQ site with good toilet facilities and room for children to ride bikes and scooters.

    A natural Rivulet that begins in the Wellington range and enters Derwent River at the Buckingham Rowing Club.

    Best spot to access is at the end of Rangeview Crescent

    Or at the public toilets and car park on Lenah Valley rd

    This is one of the oldest docks in Tasmania dating to 1891 and remains a working dock to this day although much changed from the early photo records. We went for a stroll after breakfast at Zero Davey, looked like the fishing fleet was in with a smattering of other small ships. Mures Restaurant seemed to be the dominant feature. Not too busy when we were there and great for some photos.
