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

We did not stay at The Bears, but, went to the Bears Cafe for lunch. The new owners Leanne & Ross are very friendly & accommodating. 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. My partner had the "Chilli concarne"... More

Brilliant coffee, good food. Rating the cafe service only. Thanks to the new management for an excellent experience. Haven't been in the cafe for years but now recommended by friends who also hadn't been there for years.

We were on our way to the Tahune air walk and stopped off here for lunch and was pleasantly surprised. We had a lovely lunch in a very comfortable atmosphere. Very clean and tidy. The hosts were very informative and were very obliging to our needs. They had taken over the business and had only been open 5 days. We... More

Unfortunately we were duped by the tourist brochure of where to stay. We were escaping another place that was a nightmare and thought we would be staying in a quaint comfortable B & B! Firstly - the cafe/coffee shop/ restaurant is closed - so we thought the accommodation area was also closed! poor signage. The female owner told us all... More

We stayed here a little while ago but just had to do a review about it. It truly is the best B&B I've stayed at. The host was friendly, the room was clean and those bears... Gotta love those bears! They are everywhere but it's so quaint and cute. The food was absolutely top stuff and great serves too. I... More
