Welcomed at the front door by the owner who provided us with a welcoming drink and an informative session on the historic of the house.

Beautiful part of the world

Pros: Old world charm and comfort.
Location: Lots to do in Strahan including a Gordon River Cruise, ride a steam train through the rainforest, local waterfalls, tranquil environment, great coffee
Strahan is such a gorgeous place and what better way to enhance your stay than by checking in to Ormiston House. This gorgeous house has wonderfully appointed rooms, a lovely breakfast room (with a very tasty continental breakfast included in the tariff). Don't miss going upstairs to the tiny museum and the Widow's Walk for lovely view over the harbour.

Historic home in a fabulous location

Pros: the setting and the building.
Cons: it was a little tired, could do with an update.
Location: Fabulous location in a wonderful town with lots to do. Gordan River Cruise, and The Old Train are a must while the restaurants are of a high standard.
a wonderful old home from a bygone era in a remarkable town.

Magnifcent old house opposite Macquarie Harbour.

Pros: Location.
Cons: Breakfast is described as “continental” but a greater selection, e.g. pastries etc., is expected given the tariff. Water pressure poor.
Location: Lots to do including cruising on the Gordon River and the Wilderness Railway.
Strahan is such a wonderful place to visit. Ormiston House is conveniently located a brisk 10 minute walk alng the waterfront from the town centre.

Shabby

Pros: The potential for a really great B&B.
Cons: New management.
Location: Strahan is a lovely place and would like to return, but not to this retirement project.
Posing as a boutique B&B, this is below Pub standard at best. Online pictures of our room were not indicative of the actual space - TV and other electrical cables exposed, stained and badly worn carpet, peeling paint and wallpaper. Towels were threadbare and smelly, complimentary biscuits were stale. We didn't bother having the included breakfast as we assumed this would be dodgy as well. Room was not cleaned for our second night. Very disappointing stay. What is really disappointing is the less than sympathetic 'restoration' of this historic building. Hopefully one day, an enterprising proprietor may do the place justice.
