Our second visit to this location, the previous one being in September 2013, and again this tim around we were not disappointed. The service, the warmth and great hospitality are second to none. Some 5 star hotel chains could well do with sending their senior execs to this establishment to see how its really done and learn a few tips...

Great property, walk path around the river, platypus under one bridge. The rooms were great, clean & comfortable decorated in period style. Basic cooking facilities supplied, or full cooked dinner offered at extra cost. Jenifa was an excellent, friendly host. l

We stayed two nights. Two adults, and our two adult children. Mid-winter. Genuine greetings, and a warm fire on arrival. Warm fire again on our return late on the second day. Our breakfast supplies were fine, and our in-house evening meal on the second night was excellent. Good value, friendly, and peaceful. Highly recommended. We are keen to stay again.

Had to book this on way back from Strahan as Hobart was full! So glad we did as we got to see Mt. Field Nat. Park a bit. Cottage was 2 bedroom, relaxed, private and with the nicest hosts, they brought delic and fresh dinner meals via large menu (extra, but well worth it). We don't really like B&B's but...

We picked this B&B because of its proximity to Mt Field National Park but it turned out to be so much more than convenience. Beautifully restored comfortable cottages, beautiful cottage gardens, and superb food cooked by the hosts. The grounds are extensive, and a delight to walk around either to look for birds or just relax in the peaceful surrounds.

We came by this place accidently, on our way to Mount Field. We were so lucky finding this! Spacious accommodation, a real "home" and a lovely garden. We were sorry we could only stay for one night, it is worth staying longer. Also the dinner provided by Peter &Sue was wonderful

We chose Hamlet Downs for its proximity to Mt Field National Park and also to break our journey between Hobart and Strahan. Peter and Sue cater superbly for the needs of travellers. Our unit offered us self-catering or delicious meals delivered to our enclosed verandah. The accommodation is spacious, clean, comfortable and warm. It is wonderfully peaceful with views over...

Sue & Peter made me fee so welcome. The suite was perfect & the icing on the cake was the sun room/Conservatory. Dinner was available and reasonably priced. The king size bed was luxury all the way. Will recommend every time.
