I regularly visit Queenstown for work and love staying here. The rooms are spotlessly clean, the beds very comfortable and the cooked breakfast is fantastic. The owners are very welcoming and it's just like staying with friends. Have even played snooker on the huge snooker table. Definitely an unexpected gem in Queenstown

This bed and breakfast is set in a lovely building just out the main area of Queenstown. We were greeted by our lovely hosts and shown to our lovely room. We highly recommend having dinner, was very nice.

This B&B was the highlight of our trip around Tassie and we stayed in a lot of lovely places. We booked the twin room and double with a share bathroom for our family of 4. The rooms were clean and spacious and located at the top of a short staircase, along with the bathroom and separate toilet, so you are... More

We stayed 3 nights in Queenstown and found the Penghana B & B excellent, friendly and comfortable. It is a National Trust property, so don't expect super modern facilities but what it lacks in modern fittings, it more than makes up for peace, calm, stylist Edwardian comfort. With extremely nice hosts ( we recommend eating in one night to sample... More

A spacious and heritage listed Mansion overlooking the mining town of Queenstown. Great views of the town and surrounding landscape that is blemished from its mining history. The room was very large and comfortable though the bed was so squeaky that the smallest movement made a lot of noise. Our hosts were happy to provide advice and put on a... More

Penghana, Owner at Penghana Bed & Breakfast, responded to this review

Thank you for your comments. We didn't realise we had a squeeky bed and if we are informed of the problem by guests prior to checkout then we can address it. Unfortunately this was not brought to our attention. Our guests comfort is important to us and we do our best to ensure they have an enjoyable stay. More

Queenstown is not noted for its accommodation and Penghana is probably your best bet in town. Nothing in Tasmania is cheap, and Penghana lives up to that expectation. Very friendly owners & dog are positives, as is the historic building with a good tale to tell. Rooms vary - the Huxley Room has a large & freshly renovated bathroom, the... More

My wife and I very much enjoyed our stay in what is the former Mine Manager's residence, a building which must be close to the best in Queenstown. The building has a lovely heritage ambience and the accommodation is very comfortable in a town which reflects its rugged past. Penghana is something of a jewel in this environment with a... More

This is an unexpectedly luxurious B&B in an old mining town. Impressive and spacious period building set in the nice garden on the hill overlooking the town. We have stayed one night in the Jules Double room. It must be the largest room we have ever stayed in. It was set up very nicely with large comfortable beds. There is... More

We stayed here overnight in the Lyell room. It was quite spacious and the bed was wonderfully comfortable and cosy. The view was lovely and the gardens were looking very impressive..... Napoleon the dog gave us a guided tour. The owners were very pleasant and helpful and the breakfast, made to order, was delicious. It was definitely the perfect place... More
