Made to feel very much at home. Nothing was too much trouble. Bit of a different set up which meant the women in the party could shop whilst the men had a glass of wine! Rooms were comfortable, showers hot and good continental breakfast. Ross was very knowledgeable about the area and gave good advice on where to visit. Well... More

Good base from which to do the Tahune Airwalks from. We dined at the Kermandie pub 5 kms or so for dinner as meals weren't available at that time at the B & B. The rooms were very nicely decorated & bathrooms equally so. I am not normally too keen on B & B's as I am 60 & prefer... More

This was my first B&B experience and I loved it. Great hostess - Leanne - who was friendly, informative and welcoming. The room was cosy, clean and private with a pleasant sitting area on a covered verandah. So much potential here and looks like the right people are working toward making it a successful little business.

We have just spent 3 nights at 'The Bears' in Geeveston in the family room (Steiff). We would highly recommend it to others. Our room was immaculately neat and clean, the beds comfortable and Leanne and Ross were excellent hosts; going out of their way to make our stay enjoyable, and to help us when one of our children was...

We chose Geeveston in order to access the Hartz Mountain National Park, which has some stunning walks. We stayed in the Chiltern Suite at the Bears...as with many old homesteads the natural lighting was low in the room, however the modern bathroom was well lit, spacious and pristine. The room was cosy but fine for our purposes, I suspect the... More

We loved "the Bear" and highly recommend staying and dining. Our room was cosy and warm, the bed was divine and the spa bubbled beautifully. Great location - artisans, craftsmen, op-shop aiding Cambodia and platypus watching in strolling distance. We had a delicious Tassie produce and wine driven dinner, ready at a tap on our door, provided with expertise and... More

We stopped in at the cafe for lunch today and had the tastiest home cooked food we have had in a long time. Great hearty servings of locally produced foods at a reasonable price. A great addition to Geeveston, friendly owners. I wish them well in their new business. We will be back again for a feed and will recommend... More

I had the very tasty & filling "Bears Dog" for lunch a very tasty bratwurst sausage in a sourdough roll with caramelized onion, spiced apple, chorizo & mustard.
