Second stay at The Duck House and definitely not disappointed. The presentation of the house is amazing, it is meticulously clean and comfortable (particularly the central heating)! The breakfast provisions are more than adequate and it is great that it's all local produce. Overall an absolute pleasure - we will be back!

Stayed a night here with friends. Everything was 5 star. Hosts were very friendly and provided lovely provisions for breakfast. The house was welcoming and cosy and included a vegetable and fruit garden which is available for guests. The hosts own 3 adjoining federation style properties. We were lucky to have Titch(?) show us them all. They are all charmingly...

A must visit! With charming decor, incredible hosts and a lovely veggie garden where you can pick herbs and produce this B&B is a wonderful experience. It is located a short walk to the beach and centre of town and is equipped with everything you could possibly need. An 11/10!

This place is amazing. The hosts are extremely accommodating and friendly. The house is clean, the decor is fantastic and the facilities are superb. The provided breakfast is the best I have ever come across in accommodation of this type. From cereals and sour dough to smokey bacon and eggs. Herbs and veges are available from the gardens as well....

This is an extraordinary home, Mrs. Philpotts. Everything was top notch. The breakfast was the very best, the baths and beds very comfortable, we could have stayed longer. It was perfect for the four of us and our hosts were very helpful with suggestions and directions. I would highly recommend staying here.

We (two couples) stayed in Mrs Philpotts for one night. I wish we had stayed longer. The home was lovely and close to everything we wanted to see. The owners were very nice, friendly and extremely helpful. Beds were comfortable. Breakfast was excellent. I would recommend this place to anyone visiting Burnie.
