You will hard pushed to find a more idylic location for a B&B. My wife and I stayed here for three nights in early Feb. As soon as you walk in you realise you are not so much in a B&B but a piece of living history. Lynton & Lorella are the most charming hosts with nothing too much trouble.... More

We stayed here for three nights in January. The place is rich in historical significance as part of Tasmania's convict heritage. It was even mentioned during our Port Arthur tour as a place of importance. It was the main supply wharf and storage for the original Port Arthur convict settlement. The convict powered railway started from here to the Port... More

Yes the bathroom was down the hall and nothing special, but the site is lovely, the hosts are real people: friendly, kind, helpful and interesting. Our room was spacious and comfortable, and a piece of history! Breakfast was simple and delicious. It was the personal touches that we loved the most. We came home with one of Lynton's sketches... a... More

Very welcoming and hostpitable. Stayed in the Post Office Suite which has its own private entrance. Simple but tasty breakfast, warm and comfortable room. Lynton is very friendly and happy to talk about the history of the building and general location as well as recommending tours and activities in the area.

Our family of four stayed here for 1 night a couple of weeks ago. We arrived late in the afternoon and were greeted by Lynton - a wonderful host with a huge depth of knowledge of the Tasman Peninsula area and history and Tasmania in general. The house is very comfortable and our room was very accommodating for our family... More

The NBCS is a lovely and historical site, managed by a very warm couple who looks after you in a special and kindly manner. Their breakfast is unique! The room was not exactly that clean, but the building is indeed very old. Recommended experience!

We stayed for 1 night and the host was full of information about the history of the house and the surrounding district. There are old photos around the wall and you feel like you have stepped back in time. We sat out by the water and had a late afternoon drink which was very pleasant. There was fresh baked bread...

What a gem of a place! Gorgeous location, very close to the Port Arthur Historic site, and right on Norfolk Bay. It was so lovely to wake up in the morning, take a tour around the orchard then walk along the waterfront - what a way to start the day! The breakfast was delicious and generous and Lynton, our host,... More

We had the absolute pleasure of staying here for unfortunately only one night. Our hosts were delightful and went out of their way to welcome us to their "home". Absolutely immaculate, comfortable - all positives. The breakfast was lovely with home made bread and jams complementing the cereals and fresh compote of fruits. Linton was really knowledgable about activities and... More
