We loved our stay at Donalea - did not want to leave - relaxing views of the bay, beautiful heritage home and lovely garden with beautifully appointed bedroom and guest lounge room. Continental breakfast scrumptious with homemade breads, muffins. Don and Leanne welcoming and friendly, nothing too much trouble.

Room Tip: Mid range price but luxury accommodation

Taking time out to write us a review is very much appreciated as are your kind words. We are so fortunate to live at Donalea with Huon River views and old fashioned cottage gardens. Glad you enjoyed Leanne's home made bread and muffins, which are very popular with guests. We would love to see you down this way again one day.

We have been to lots of hotels and chalets from cheap to expensive, but this takes the cake for the absolute best.

I have never been to a place where so much consideration for the guests has been given. Unfortunately the guest these days is not much of a priority, not here. Don and Lea are the most graciously attentive hosts where nothing is too much trouble and the accommodation is beautiful. Everything you could ever need in a wonderfully appointed cabin has made this trip fantastic.

Thank you Don and Lea, you are a credit to tourism.

Two things make Donalea stand out:
1. exceptional attention to detail. The bathrooms gleam, the crockery at breakfast it laid out perfectly, the jams are all presented in neat dishes, there are just the right signs provided, afternoon tea is provided on arrival, hot chocolate is available as well as coffee and tea, the view from the breakfast table is magnificent.
2. It is both very private, and the hosts are social. On arrival and departure we were greeted, and the hosts came and chatted at breakfast. When in our rooms, there is a great feeling of privacy from the hosts and other guests.

All in all, it is one of the best B&Bs we've ever stayed at.

Thanks Rob for your positive review and glad you had a wonderful experience with us at Donalea. There is only one thing better than a glowing review and that is knowing that you are a return guest. It was lovely meeting you again and hope you had a nice time catching up with family.

My fiancée and I were warmly greeted by Leanne and Don when we arrived, and Leanne gave us a tour of the immaculately clean and tidy house.
Coffee and biscuits were available, and cake and biscuits were delivered to our room.
Our room had a adjoining bathroom with a spa. Everything was super shiny and spotless.
We took a stroll around the impeccable garden and had a drink and a snack on the veranda overlooking the water.
The breakfast table was very impressive, with lots of homemade produce include breads and preserves, and lovely crockery to eat it off.
I highly recommend this B&B!

Thanks Aaron for finding the time to give us such a glowing review. It was lovely meeting you both and so glad you enjoyed walking the gardens. They really are looking splendid, due to all the Spring rains. Hopefully we will see you down this way again one day.
