This was the best place we stayed at in Tasmania. I loved the decor and it was large and roomy for all of us. The house was immaculate and homey and just felt so comfortable to stay in. The provisions and facilities were above and beyond. The owners were gracious and welcoming. I highly recommend a stopover here and would suggest longer than I had.

A home away from home. Staying in hotels when travelling for work is miserable, having a gorgeous house to come back to was fantastic. Literally everything I needed was available. Including limes for my G&T.

We stayed one night (12/11/18) at Mrs Philpotts and it simply wasn’t long enough to enjoy this wonderful home. Our family group of six adults were very impressed with absolutely everything. From the host’s welcoming greeting, the superbly comfortable beds and top class linen, the furnishings and gardens, the private spaces and the great supply of breakfast provisions, the assistance with restaurant choices and the peaceful, quiet surrounds. Thank you for your hospitality, much appreciated! We hope to return soon.

beautiful heritage home well located

Pros: Modern kitchen facilities
Cons: I would have like a few more options for TV viewing.
Location: It's a 10 minute walk to the shopping precinct, walk down the road and you're at the beach, and also the Makers is just around the corner.
Beautifully decorated and furnished in keeping with the heritage style. We received a warm welcome from the owners, and we couldn't believe all the provisions for breakfast. They had thought of everything, for their guests throughout. The beds were very comfortable with gorgeous linen, and the house was lovely and warm. We would definitely stay again, only longer next time!
