We had read that Queenstown was not a pretty place but we chose to give it a go, not wanting to pay the extortionist room rates in Strahen. We're so glad we did. Penghana is beautiful. The whole experience was a highlight of our trip around Tassy. Steve and Karen are knowledgable friendly people who bring that whole experience together,... More

We only stayed a single night but it would have been a great base for travelling in the area. The historic old house overlooks the town and is a glimpse of a bygone age. The hosts were great and the rooms extremely comfortable. The price is very reasonable considering the extent of the cooked breakfast. I would readily recommend Penghana... More

Karen and Steve have recently taken over this historic property and have had to hit the ground running and have done so with aplomb. They were very friendly and informative and Hannah the Basset Hound was a character. We stayed in the "Owen" which is an impressive room with en suite and very comfortable. The only down side being that... More

Thank you for your positive and kind comments. We enjoyed making your acquaintance and looking after you. Our situation with evening meals is unfolding and we are finding that our cheese platter, nachos and the like are 'just right' for those guests who have been either on the Gordon River Cruise or the Wilderness Railway and partaken of a huge...

Arrived to a stunning property, full of history with fantastic views, furnished with some amazing antiques. Unfortunately thats where the praise ends. Upon arrival we were greeted by the hosts at 1.30pm only to be sent away and told to come back at 2.30pm. It would have seemed polite to be invited in to enjoy the comfort of the guest... More

Obviously we find it disturbing that all aspects of your experience with us was a disappointment and so opposite to the other reviews we are receiving. We are surprised about some of your comments given you booked only 3 days prior to your arrival and weren't aware from our website that check-in is 3pm, check out is 10.00 a.m., the... More

We spent two weeks travelling around Tasmania and this was the most delightful place we stayed. Beautiful heritage listed home with lots of charm and character. New owners Karen and Steve were great hosts, helpful and made us feel very comfortable over the 3 days over Christmas. We had the Lyell Room which was clean and next to the guest... More

We stayed for 2 nights, 3 couples in 3 delightful rooms. We were greeted by Karen and Steve who are friendly and knowledgeable hosts on the history of Penghana B&B which is a National Trust mansion. We stayed in the Owen room which had views over Queenstown and Mt. Lyell and all the rooms are clean, very spacious and comfortable... More

This delightful B & B has charm and character. Very peaceful with views over the town. The hosts are very accommodating and nothing is to much trouble. The rooms and common areas are decorated with period antiques with large period style beds and the breakfast was spot on. You wont 't be disappointed,,

We stayed for 2 nights in a large comfortable family room. Delightful breakfast each morning. Penghana is a fascinating old building filled with history. The grounds are serene. Our hosts Steve and Karen were very helpful and made us feel welcome. I would definitely recommend Penghana for its charm and location, plus is makes a nice difference to motel style... More

This is an amazing place. We stayed during our tour of Tasmania prior to moving on to New Zealand and found that Karen had just taken over from the previous incumbents. Even so, she was an absolute darling, offering to help with luggage and sympathising when we discovered that smalltown Tasmania doesn't cope with late diners (there's nowhere and nothing... More

We stayed in summer and lots where booked in and close to this town but Queenstown turned out to be a little gem, lots of things to do in a couple of days stay and a lovely base to come home to at this B&B, situated imposing on a hill but within align distance into the township. Lovely hosts, great... More

So pleased you enjoyed your time in Queenstown and like many others discovered it has so much to offer. Also, delighted you enjoyed our "little extras". We believe it is important to ensure our guests get value for money spent and go away feeling '"special". We look forward to welcoming you back. More
