Walking up the broad porch steps and then entering the Glen Osborne House brings to mind Scarlet O’Hara’s plantation home in Gone with the Wind. A gorgeous well-appointed stately mansion, immaculately decorated and filled with fascinating artwork and objects - historic photos, souvenirs from around the world, lovely gardens. Merv and Del are welcoming, friendly and helpful; their breakfast was... More

This old mansion has been beautifully restored by the owners. We spent a night in the beautiful Rose Room and returned for an extra night two days later. Our hosts were delightful and are great cooks - we had a lovely hot breakfast, sitting at a bay window surrounded by lace, beautiful paintings and exquisite gold leaf on the pressed... More

We only spent one night here (unfortunately) in the Rose room. A classic & beautiful house high on the hill in Burnie. Lovely hosts, beautiful furnishings, great breakfast, would have loved to stay longer.

We stayed at Glen Osbourne House in August 2014 for two nights. We had the Rose Room upstairs. This is a Grand Manor, clean, comfortable, gracious hosts, and a great cooked breakfast. We will stay again when next in Burnie. Only thing missing was Wi-Fi.

Beautiful old heritage home, superbly finished and furnished, wonderful hosts - what more could you want in accommodation. Located less than 1km from the centre of Burnie and having lovely views over the harbour. Almost impossible to find fault with it. Very highly recommended.

Such a beautiful country house, immaculately decorated and filled with fascinating artwork and objects - historic photos, souvenirs and art from around the world, a working 50's wireless in our room. Super-comfy bed, great shower. Wish we were there long enough to enjoy the gorgeous balcony/terrace. Warm friendly service and delicious breakfast. Can't fault it.

we just spent one night here recently and will go back again and again! Nothing new to add. The hosts are lovely, friendly and helpful, the rooms beautifully renovated, (make sure you check out the stunning ceiling in the dining room!!) There were generous slices of fruit cake in the room, the bed was comfortable, breakfast was simple but good... More

Where to start? The warm welcome on arrival from Del and Merv made us feel comfortable and relaxed. The historic home has been magnificantly restored and the rooms are spacious, well appointed, spotlessly clean and comfortable. The nice touches like fresh flowers and home made fruit cake just add to the welcome feeling you get here. The hosts are so... More

This is a beautifully restored historic home which is very comfortably furnished. The hosts are most cordial and welcoming. They maintain a beautiful garden setting which is close to town but feels private with a good view of the harbor. They provide a wholesome attractive breakfast in beautifully redecorated front room having an original ornate ceiling with much detail. It... More
