We had a formal dinner and it was just delicious also one night we had a casual BBQ where Karen n Steve n Hanna joined us. Nothing was too much trouble. They provide us with...

Firstly, thank you for choosing Penghana for your group's 40 year reunion trip and in particular for choosing this venue to 'formally' celebrate this milestone as well as take the opportunity for your group to enjoy the Wilderness Railway and Heritage Cruise in Macquarie Harbour/Gordon River experiences. We're pleased the catering for all your meals here worked well and that...

The hosts karen and Steven have only been managing Penghana for 14 months, but it's a truely rewarding stay on so many levels. A unique mansion retains its 120 year old charm, but a genuine warmth and socialising areas wrap the whole experience.

Thank you Bruce for your glowing comments about Penghana under our business ownership. We do strive to ensure our guests have 'an experience' at Penghana rather than it being just another B & B. Our 2 guest lounge areas, ballroom (with billiard table and pianola) and our new outside BBQ area we trust give our guests space and choices of...

What a beautiful and stately home Penghana is. Standing tall and majestic on the hill, she and her hosts welcome you with open arms.

We stayed for only one night but were delighted with the Penghana B&B. Steve and Karen welcomed us right away and gave a brief history. Where else can you go in Tasmania and find a host with ties to Iowa?! The room was very comfortable, including the bed. And very quiet. The bath towels were fabulous! Free in room wifi....

Yes the Western Wilderness of Tasmania is probably the last place you would expect to find someone who lived for a year just 30 minutes from your own hometown in the middle of Iowa! I always enjoy going down memory lane back to 1972 and fondly remembering my exchange student year in Chariton Iowa, which I continue to credit as...

An absolutely wonderful establishment to spend a couple of nights in. Reward yourself with delightful surroundings and a breakfast to die for. So much trouble gone to by Karen and Steve that makes this stay worthwhile. Also the cost of the bed and breakfast is very reasonable.

The hosts, Karen and Steve are perfect in the role of welcoming guests to their home. Everything about our too short stay was tops. The House is charming with history oozing out of every corner, the beds were comfortable and conducive to sleep.

The location is superb: the mansion built for the general manager of the mining and railway company in the late 19th century. Our room was palatial, bed excellent. Breakfast offered a wide choice.

Thank you for taking the time to review Penghana B & B and your positive comments.

Fascinating house in one of the best locations in town with a commanding view over Queenstown. Lots of rooms that guests can go in.

This B&B brings the history of Queenstown alive. The hosts are fabulous and more than willing to share the history of the house and sights to see. The breakfast is a 10 out of 10 too. Special preserves, made to order eggs, and tea and coffee service from vintage silver pots. Like living the royal life of the early 1900's...
