We recently stayed at Tranquilles and enjoyed a cosy night in front of the fire before retiring to our beautiful room. Peter and Cathy were great hosts and served a plentiful breakfast before we set off on our way. Lovely property, value for money and great hosts we will be back.

Awesome hosts, great friendly team, even the little dog deserves a mention. They will go the extra mile to make sure your stay is a magnificent one.

Peter and Kathy (and Paris the pooch!) were fantastic. Great food, friendly, helpful & personal service and really nice accommodation. We would recommend this B&B to anyone looking for an affordable, comfortable and quiet place to stay. It felt like a home away from home : )

Pleasant hosts and large rooms but we paid capital city prices for accommodation that was a little rough around the edges. The location was pleasant enough, but rather remote from the local attractions. The breakfast that was included was available only until 0830, which is definitely not what holiday relaxation is about! The hosts were friendly, but some fine-tuning of... More

Peter and Kathy have a lovely property and are exceptional hosts. The guest rooms are well appointed and if there is additional requirements to what is provided, they are more than happy to accommodate. We had a very early morning to get back on the boat and Peter was happy to cook our 6am breakie.
