Quiet and comfortable. Friendly and helpful service. Located just a short walk outside the town, in a beautiful garden setting, this was a great place to explore the Cradle Mountain region. Given that most of Tasmania's accommodation is very expensive, staying here helped the holiday be affordable. Cooked our own food one night and a country pub meal the next....

We arrived late off the ferry and accessed our room with ease. It was very comfortable and well set up with good catering amenities. Had a much needed restful night and would have no hesitation recomending this establishment to other travelers.

We arrived late from the ferry but had no problems accessing our room. The spa room was large and very comfortable. It included a table and chairs so we could have meals in the room or in the attractive garden.

We also stayed recently in the room with a large spa bathroom. All very clean and very comfortable. Pleasant hosts and nice grounds too. An excellent base for exploring the region. Over summer be aware that eating options in Sheffield town are challenging past 8 pm. It might be daylight saving but the locals all still eat well before the...

My husband and I stayed in the spa room for two nights. It was basic, comfortable accommodation. It would have been better if there was a larger shower in the huge bathroom that was mostly unused space.

Enjoyed our multi-night stay at Kentish Hills Retreat in Sheffield. We booked the spa room, and found it to be notably large (with a VERY large bathroom and oversize spa tub). Bed was comfortable and room included small dining table with 2 chairs as well as small desk and kitchenette with kettle, toaster, fridge and microwave (very handy). WiFi worked...

We stayed here as a family in November 15. On check in i was greeted by the owner. She was very friendly and gave insight into Sheffield and the tourist attractions around the area as well as the worthwhile restaurants in town. It was quite cold when we were there so we booked a spa suite and enjoyed a nice...

We stayed in Kentish Hills Retreat for 1 night en-route to Cradle Mountain the next morning. We liked that the room was quiet, clean and quite spacious. Bathroom was also quite spacious. Kitchen sufficiently equipped with a microwave oven. Coffee/Tea bags were provided free. Room had a heater which came in handy as it was quite chilly at night. The...

What a beautiful place to stay. It was so peaceful. We were allowed to hand feed the alpacas and Russell the sheep. The BBQ area was clean and the room spacious. Also quiet enough to meditate outside near their waterfall. Thank you for a lovely bed.

I chose Sheffield because all the accommodation around Cradle Mountain was fairly pricy; and Sheffield was one of the larger towns not too far away, and with reasonable rates (although slightly higher than Launceston and Hobart). There were two motels I found in Sheffield at the same price, and I am glad I chose Kentish Hills Retreat. This motel is...
