Donalea is one of the best B&Bs we have ever stayed in. We were there for two nights and could have happily stayed for two weeks. Don and Leanne have restored the house and the gardens so beautifully, you feel relaxed and peaceful as soon as you walk in.

Our room, The Waterview Room, was large and sumptuously comfortable with soft carpet, a very comfortable bed and a large ensuite with an excellent shower. The view was a photographer's dream and the wifi was excellent.

We were greeted with afternoon tea and made to feel very welcome as we relaxed on the terrace overlooking the gardens and beyond to the water and as walked around enjoying the lovely garden.

We had a large but cosy lounge room with a fireplace that we were able to sit in at night and an elegant dining room in which to enjoy the home-cooked goodies at breakfast. This room also had the breath-taking view of the bay.

Tea, coffee and biscuits were always available and there was a fridge and microwave available. We took advantage of them the second night when we chose to eat in.

The presentation and finish throughout is excellent , there are no downsides and we would wholeheartedly give this B&B an excellent rating of 10.

Only booked two hours before arrival but Leanne was all organised. Great set up and Don has a lovely garden. Home made jams and bread for breakfast after a relaxing spa and a great nights sleep. Some helpful advise for our dinner and our forward plans.

we have stayed at this b&b on numerous occasions. this is the best review we can give to any property. repeat customers on a regular basis. the hosts are most welcoming, go out of their way to make all visitors comfy. give good advice on activities in the valley (& beyond). always give little extra treats at the breakie table. the presentation of the establishment is outstanding, & overall is 'home away from home'. we holiday in tassie multiple times per year, & always make donalea a stay on our trips. you wont find better.

Room Tip: B&B waterview - good size room. B&B spa - huge bathroom & corner spa. Apartment - great for 2 couples or small family group.

Recently stayed at a charming place in the Huon Valley called Donalea bed and breakfast ,so glad we did,what a stunning peaceful setting.
Hosts Don and Leanne were wonderful and nothing was too much for them ,spacious rooms with all you could want from a charming couple who made you feel very welcome.
Leanne even provided home cooked treats to take with you on your day trips.
If you want to stay in charming peaceful surrounds with wonderful hosts this is the place for you. We will be back.

Room Tip: Room 1 was large with a great ammenities including Spa .

This was a great way to spend 2 nights in the Huon. Don and Leanne make you feel at home and the view of the river is fantastic at any time of the day. The location is pretty central to all things Huon. Great location and place to stay
