The estate has so much character and is more than just a place to sleep! It was truly a wonderful experience. The couple that runs Tynwald made us feel very welcome, at home and were a pleasure to be around. The food is made with love and worth every cent. Absolutely stunning gardens, flowers and views. We highly recommend and will return!

Beautiful old house and gardens. Living history preserved by the owners of 32 years, only the 5th owner since 1830. Great food and wine.

Shame you had to return home so early. Vincent Lighting C1953 was out for a rally/gathering at Ross on the Sundayafter you left. Didn't manage to get there, but @ AU$ 1.3 m should look out for it, as I'm told the owner does use all the bikes in his collection, no use just storing, enjoy them. Thanks for staying with us, Enjoyed your company, Regards, Garry.

Old hotel and historical atmosphere

The information about this hotel and its facilities was too bright and too optimistic. We did not have balcony and waterfall and we did not know if there were a pool. The information given in the room was about the history of the place, we needed info: breakfast and dinner time etc., how to use heater... Practical things... In the room there where only little place for clothes and belongings, for 4 nights it was needed. So please tell like in a local advertisement: "historical accomondation" Food and service was excellent!

Gorgeous Get Away, gracious hosts

Wonderful 4 night get away at Tynwald Estate, in a nostalgic perfectly located little town, with excellent views, bedroom and scenery. The restaurant food and early morning home made jams are at a high standard showing the hosts own culinary skills complimenting and already awesome time away! Thankyou Pat and Garry ! We will be back X

Lovely historic building

Lovely building and grounds although house very dark. Needs decluttering Disapointed not offered a cooked breakfast on 2nd morning of stay. Owners may have been there too long - sadly lacking hospitality skills.

lovely old house

Pros: Historic building built in 1830, beautifully kept. Food was delicious. Very quiet.
Lovely old house in a lovely setting. Surrounded by gardens and bush, it is very quiet, but not only a short drive to the shops and only half an hour easy drive into Hobart. The room was a reasonable size, with everything we needed. The staff were very helpful and friendly. We dined there one night- absolutely amazing! Would recommend for a weekend or longer.
