Warm and welcoming historic B&B

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 9 Apr 2023
Stayed for 4 nights in the 2 bedroom apartment and it was a fabulous place to be based while exploring Tassie’s West.

Karen made the booking process easy and gave great recommendations on what we could do while we were there.

When we arrived the 2 bed apartment exceeded our expectations. It was spotlessly clean and a great size. The kitchen had everything you could need. Air fryer, stove top, toaster, filter coffee, slow cooker and more.

There were even fluffy bathrobes and slippers for us all.

During our stay we were made to feel most welcome and were grateful recipients of fresh baked muffins and bread.

Thanks Karen and Steve for the wonderful welcome and stay.

Thanks Kylie - we love to hear we exceed our guests' expectations. When travelling ourselves it's things like extra towels and good quality coffee,a homemade treat and a personal welcome that does make a difference to one's stay so we strive to ensure we treat our guests the way we love to be spoilt.

    Karen and Steve provided the best service for the six of us cyclists. Nothing was too much trouble, including arranging a team dinner in their beautiful formal dining room, breakfasts providing energy for the day, even spare towels and face washers for an all day ride. They were great hosts, comfortable beds and drinks to our taste at the bar following a day on the bikes. Highly recommended

    Wonderful hospitality, 1898 National Trust Mansion, on a scenic hillside, overlooking Queenstown’s township. We enjoyed 3 nights at this gorgeous mansion. Located close to all the West coast sightseeing spots. Only a 45-minute drive to Strahan for Gordon River Cruises or 1.5 hours to Tasmania’s Iconic Cradle Mountain or Corrina’s Pieman River for day trips. We stayed in the 2 bedroom downstairs apartment. The bed was one of the most comfortable I've ever slept on. it was cold and raining when we were there but soooo warm with the heater on. On tap sherry and port 24hours.

    Room tip: All the rooms are lovely - we stayed on the ground floor apartment with its own car park and two bedrooms with lovely pressed metal walls .

    A delightful place to stay. Our hosts, Karen and Steve made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. Beautifully renovated and very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and so was the ‘guilt free’ fruit cake. Only wish we could have stayed longer.
