We stayed three nights and loved ever moment! The staff were extremely caring and committed to providing the very best of service. The food was delicious at both breakfasts and dinners and the accommodation was excellent. Will definitely return. Jo & Murray Melbourne.

Listed as 5 star by Small Luxury Hotels of the World, we were almost immediately left questioning that rating. The website and photo gallery show a lovely, restored manor house, nestling on the river bank amid rolling green hills and trees. What they don't show is the main highway passing immediately adjacent to the property, or the major bridge which... More

Dear EilselNoDrog Yes, it was apparent as soon as you arrived that Woodbridge was not what you were expecting. That was why we offered an immediate cancelation and full refund. To our surprise, you chose to stay the night, and then, even more surprising, the next morning you requested to stay a second night, so we were happy that you... More

We stayed there for the NYE...Nice small hotel on the river. The rooms are cute, the hotel of course close at 9, but at least they leave you wine, coffe, water, tea, beer, snacks in the living room area. So if you need something you can help yourself. They give the feeling of a house with more guests. The dinner... More

Dear Jaquelinne We are delighted that you 'will return'. We would love to share more of our beautiful Derwent Valley with you next time. We are glad you enjoyed the sense of abundance! Woodbridge was one of the first grand homes in Tasmania, and the early families established a reputation for generosity and hospitality. As an hotel, Woodbridge continues that... More

We spent 7 days at WoodBridge on the Derwent and we encountered a very small luxury hotel of the world. But still we did not regret one moment! The food was great!

Spent one night in this marvellous place. This hotel is a must for anyone who visits Tasmania and who wants to experience a breathtakingly beautiful view, an excellent service which could better be expressed as a warm taking care of, a famous dinner in an absolutely gorgeous little restaurant.

The focus of our long weekend was the agrarian experience. The Woodbridge location was ideal for this and the Woodbridge website was most enticing. On arrival, the place was much smaller than envisaged. A welcoming cup of tea and tour of the main house was good. Significant rising damp in the lower quarters, disappointing dinners and the sound of traffic... More

Dear Leonie L Yes, Woodbridge is a VERY Small Luxury Hotel indeed. An 1825 riverfront mansion, she has 39 rooms, but accommodates a maximum 16 persons in only 8 rooms and suites. The old building techniques evident in Woodbridge are very interesting, and part of what makes this Heritage Listed property a unique hotel. They did not use damp courses... More

Our three day stay at Woodbridge was magical, from the warm and friendly service and amazing food by Liam and Fiona, to the personalised service, well informed and personable owner and magnificantly restored house. The setting is peaceful and central to lovely day trips and attractions. A venue that we will definately be revisiting.

Liked: Plush bathrobes. Historic building, nicely restored. Laundry room with a washer and dryer available at no extra charge for those of us on long trips. What a delight!

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in the Tower Room (which had it's own private staircase) and upon check-in we were given a tour of the beautifully restored 1825-built property.
