This was a lovely property, very unique, owned by a young couple who have been running it for around 2 years with their lovely little boys. The food was good, but the service was a little too homely, while this was a lovely touch it was also a bit odd, at check in we needed to order breakfast for the next day and a time to eat. The night meal was lovely, good understanding of GF options.

Service is excellent, the breakfast included delicious, a cute quaint b & b. Tastefully renovated. Located in a small town with the essentials- supermarket, fuel, coffee & this place also does dinner otherwise a short drive to another town.

The food here is very good and so is the free breakfast. My daughter fell for the pasta and repeatedly ordered that. The rooms here are a bit small, and there are no views which we thought was a serious shortcoming. But, the staff make up with excellent service.

Fantastic

The accommodation and staff were fantastic. Food was beyond good. Lamb shanks and Chowder. I'd go back just for dinner. Coffee was also absolutely awesome. Go check this lovely little gem out x

Quirky little hotel.

Was a great little place that we took refuge from due to a storm making it very uncomfortable to camp. Limited menu on the night we stayed but the best seafood chowder we have had in Tassie! Would highly recommend staying here! Was great to sit by the fire for dinner and the included breakfast the next morning.
