We have just enjoyed the most fabulous stay at Penghana - it exceeded our expectations in every way. This is an outstanding experience - not just a stay - a real experience because of the commitment from Steve and Karen to caring for the house and its community, and to ensuring your time there is enjoyable in every way and is an eye-opener to the history and current story of the West coast. Our room (Owen) was stunning and had every comfort; Steve's breakfasts are delicious and reflect Tasmanian produce quality; the house and garden are beautiful; and we greatly enjoyed the conversations and learnings. We will most definitely come again. Thank you so much.

Thank you for your words of praise. The house has a big story of 125 years to share with guests which so often creates great conversations. The house deserves to be recognised for its key role not only in Australia's mining history but globally which makes a stay at Penghana 'unique'.
We look forward to welcoming you again in the future. Thank you for choosing to stay with us.

Do yourself a favour and stay at Penghana. We had the Owen Suite and were very happy. Well appointed, a lovely view and plenty of room. Our stay was delightful. We had 3 nights and didn't want to leave. Every morning Steve would cook a delicious breakfast to order and he knew his way around a kitchen. Karen spoilt you with all the amazing finishing touches in your suite and around the house. And OMG the house, the history, the whole experience. Cant wait to go again

After reading several reviews on Penghana, I booked a night in this magnificent building a few months ago and stayed there two nights ago. What an outstanding experience. Firstly, the house is grand, stately and elevated and huge with a fascinating history. Secondly, the managers, Karen and Steve, are charming hosts, very helpful and passionate about their property. The room was immaculate, fully equipped, leaving nothing to be desired, the bed was comfortable and I felt so at home. The hot English breakfast was to die for. I wish I could have stayed longer, but I’ll be back!

Room tip: Not to be missed.

We stayed in the Owen room and it did not disappoint. A beautiful well appointed luxurious room with a choice of two lounge rooms and a kitchenette. The cooked breakfast was amazing and Karen’s home made bircher muesli was delicious. Highly recommend staying here, we’ll be back.

Thank you Julie for your positive words about your stay with us. We sincerely appreciate you taking time to make a public comment about your time at Penghana. We look forward to welcoming you on another occasion and I'm sure I'll still be making the muesli !!
The choices of spaces to relax in the house is one thing that is always a plus for guests so you don't feel you must stay in your room.

My husband and I spent 3 nights at Penghana b&b in Queenstown .
We were made to feel most welcome by Karen and Steve who go out of their way to make you feel right at home .
Our room was extremely comfortable and nothing was spared . Steve’s silver service breakfast was a great start to the day . Both Karen and Steve were very helpful with restaurant reservations and we can highly recommend Mimso kitchen at the gold rush motel .
If you want a comfortable quiet stay in Queenstown you can’t go past penghana b&b.

Room tip: Book in advance Gordon river cruise .

Penghana is simply perfect! The word "superlative" is not rich enough to describe the hosts, Karen and Steve, the house and the wonderful experience to be their guest in such a charming setting. Every positive review on Tripadvisor describes the experience that I also had when staying there last week. The meticulous attention to detail by Karen and Steve regarding every aspect of my stay, including the design touches, the room, Steve's breakfasts(!), and all the fascinating history of Queenstown and of the Penghana mansion, added depth and warmth to a very enjoyable break in my Tassie travels. Make a plan to stay with them. You will not regret it for a moment.
