We stayed in the apartment for four days while we explored the Huon Valley. The apartment was immaculate and very well appointed. Everything was first class, most notable to us was the high standard of the bedroom and bathroom linen. The apartment is self contained but we were provided with afternoon tea on arrival and stores to make our own breakfast. The apartment has its own patio with table and chairs with views of the Huon river. The beautiul garden comes with a resident Tasmanian pademelon. Don and Leanne are the perfect hosts.
Can't recommend this place highly enough.

Room tip: The apartment is first class

Thanks for the positive review Mitch and we are always happy when guests find all aspects of the accommodation to their liking. Yes, the Pademelon has made the rear yard home after raising his family here and is a pleasure to see on a daily basis.

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.
