We stayed in Paddy's Flat overnight, and loved it. The studio is small, but very comfortable and well appointed, and the location is superb, right on the river bank. We sat on the little wharf by the river with a glass of red wine and admired the perfect reflections on the glassy smooth water as the light faded. So beautiful!... More

After spending a wet, cold day traveling down from St Helens on 2 motorbikes and a car we were happy to pull in to this quaint, homely accommodation with the host waiting to greet us. We had 2 self contained flats which slept the 6 of us easily. Opening the fridge we found milk, orange juice, bread and eggs for... More

Stayed in a 2 bedroomed cottage overlooking the Derwent. Good quality furnishings and bedding. Quiet location a few minutes from the small township of New Norfolk. Breakfast things included in room and are all one needs. Accommodation is about 45 minutes from airport and a bit closer to Mona and Hobart city. Found this to be good value compared with... More

Everything was perfect. The cottage is set right in front of the river. The whole place is beautifully-landscaped, with lots of ornaments to complement the wonderful little units nestled within the compound. The host is an avid photographer and you are able to purchase her photos if you fancy them. You will find Lemon tree, apple tree etc. among the... More

I stayed for one night in Paddy's Flat and couldn't fault it. It had everything you'd need for a very comfortable visit but what I loved just as much as the inside was being able to sit and watch the river flow by. The units are hidden from the road and you can't hear any traffic. Such a nice place.

We were so pleasantly surprised when we opened the door to our "Willows" room. We did not book in advance although we did use Google to find the location. Veronica (the owner) was extremely friendly upon checkin. The room was lovely, clean and with all the comforts of home and some added extras... a real find at an extremely reasonable... More

Three of us and a 3 year old child were visiting Hobart and wanted to stay somewhere outside the city. New Norfolk is very close and picturesque and easy to get to from Mona. A well equipped kitchen, lovely breakfast supplies and gardens leading down to a private little jetty.Comfortable furniture and relaxed owners.

The reviews of this accommodation vary greatly, clearly different expectations and perhaps different units. We stayed in 'The Willows' for two nights at the end of an anti-clockwise two weeks around Tasmania - wonderful to pull up short of Hobart after coming through from Strahan in rain. Out of Hobart, yes, but an easy drive of an hour to the... More

Such a great cottage. It had everything we needed - from bath robes to modern bathroom. I would highly recommend this place and you have a wonderful views of the river. They even have cereal, toast, milk, different condiments, tea and coffee in your room. Great value for your money.

I was disappointed from the start. Was looking forward to our river view when we were down graded from that to a room with a view of the main road and no continental breakfast as stated. Very upset, it was my birthday holiday.
