Quirky but nice:) it suited me as I wanted to explore this part of the Huon and South, knew I'd be walking many of the day hikes so happy to have a comfy bed and clean ensuite waiting on my return. Continental breakfast set me up nicely each morning although I found it quite dark in the main area. The...

Very nice accommodation and very friendly owners. Room was warmed prior to arrival and was very clean Good selection of coffees and tea in the room, We had the merry thoughts room with an outward facing enclosed veranda which gave the room extra character.

We arrived in the cold rain and our thoughtful host had preheated our room which was pleasantly decorated. We were provided with a comfortable bed, a bright ensuite and plenty for breakfast. Our host gave us good advice to visit the Hartz Mountains national park and to recommend the sushi restaurant

We enjoyed our stay with our 2 kids. Breakfast was not fancy but filling before heading off to the mountains. Host very nice, friendly and informative. Great with kids too Nd very accommodating. We have not tried too much else in this town but enjoyed staying there. Cider was good with a twist and coffee was excellent!

This B & B has three rooms. The two that were allocated to us were quite small but both had en suites, which once again were rather small. Upon arrival our rooms were warm as was the welcome from our host. Included in the $120 per room tariff was a continental breakfast which was adequate, without being anything special (limited...

Thank you for your review, we appreciate all feedback. We were sorry to see room size did not meet your expectations, the rooms each have a private ensuite and are similar if not larger than the average hotel room. We think they are quite comfortable and were sorry to read of your disappointment. WiFi is available in all areas of...

Made to feel very much at home. Nothing was too much trouble. Bit of a different set up which meant the women in the party could shop whilst the men had a glass of wine! Rooms were comfortable, showers hot and good continental breakfast. Ross was very knowledgeable about the area and gave good advice on where to visit. Well...

Good base from which to do the Tahune Airwalks from. We dined at the Kermandie pub 5 kms or so for dinner as meals weren't available at that time at the B & B. The rooms were very nicely decorated & bathrooms equally so. I am not normally too keen on B & B's as I am 60 & prefer...
