Our rooms were impeccably clean and there were cosy electric blankets on all beds however our rooms and the house in general was really quite cold. We were the only guests there that night and so maybe this had an effect on the overall temperature but with only a small oil filled radiator in each bedroom it really did not... More

I recently stayed at Penghana Bed and Breakfast and it was a little slice of heaven among the surrounding mountains. The hospitality is among the best I have experienced in Australia. The entire experience is personal and authentic to Tasmania. I have never slept so well on a business trip! Highly recommended.

My teenage son and I stayed here for one night. The welcome was friendly, the room spotless with comfy beds. Plenty of room, lovely lounge. Fabulous views from an amazing house. Breakfast was really wonderful at the large twelve seat table and we also had fun playing pool on the full size billiard table. This really is a great place... More

I had the good fortune of staying here mid-week (Tues), and it was fully booked and turning people away! The historic residence has kept its charm with stunning gardens, and a grand appearance inside. I particularly liked the local artwork both new and old as it added context to this west coast town. Fabulous hosts - nothing is too much... More

When you follow direction to the B&B you wind up looking at a staircase that goes up and up and up. Follow the signs and it will take you around the base of the hill to the road up to the summit. This is a grand old building with comfortable rooms. However, read the details to ensure that you have... More

We actually found this little gem through trip advisor so was pleased that the reviews were spot on. Comfy beds, quiet outlook, helpful staff and great brekky. We had the Owen Master suite and well worth it as you had your own bathroom (others had to share). Not sure how many self contained rooms there were. We arrived at about... More

This house has great charm. Rooms were large and beds comfortable. Maureen the hostess was very helpful and welcoming. Breakfast plentiful and fresh - made to individual order. House sits on hill overlooking the town, lovely views if you can come to terms with the denuded mountain. Plenty of parking. Easy walk down to town or rail station. This historic... More
