We must have gotten the worst room in the House, as it was nothing like the wonderful reviews we have read. The room was tiny, and dusty, with worn linoleum in the bathroom, and the tiniest wash basin imaginable. There were cob-webs in corners of the room and storage areas. On the plus side is the location, as it is... More

We stayed the 1 night in the B&b and found its location very handy. Our room was large and the bathroom fine. There was quite a large gap under our door so we could hear quite a bit from the corridor and each time the front door bell went. We rolled up a towel and popped it by the door... More

I stayed one night with Sandra at Hillview house while on a quick work trip. Beautiful views from the verandah, breakfast room and my bedroom. Highlight of my stay. Service was welcoming and friendly. Room was a nice size, clean ensuite, TV, tea/coffee and wifi good enough to check my emails. Great location, though note it is on a steep... More

We recently had 2 night stay at Hillview B&B. booked room through Wotif which did not include breakfast. When we arrived we were advised that breakfast was available for an extra $15 per person but it was only available between 7.30 - 8.30. Who wants breakfast that early when on holiday..no us. We work Monday to Friday every week and... More

Thank you for your review, however, the breakfast is $15 per person and you opted for the no breakfast option. Rooms are tidies if not serviced daily, however, when the cleaner knocked at 10:30/11 with no response we were under the impression you were still sleeping as you car was still here. I am sorry you did not enjoy you... More

Had a wonderful stay. Very homely and very friendly host. Lovely. Thank you for the advice on driving times... Cradle and Burnie were worth the drive on final day :) Will be back to lovely Launceston and to enjoy more of the Cateract Gorge, a gem! Must get down in winter sometime too.

A lovely property. Great architecture that reflects the character of the area and is simply charming. Everything was clean and well presented, and the breakfasts generous and filling. Sandra was a great hostess who made you feel more like family than a guest and was always helpful when it came to ideas or traveling routes and was always interested in... More

Stayed for a night in Aug 2013 and loved it. Super friendly reception from our host, room and bed were comfy with a lovely view. The shower was amazing, didn't want to get out.
