The property is very deceptive from the front and a lot larger inside. The room that I had was at the back and had views across the bay. On arrival Maxine & Graham organised cheese and wine and nibbles in the dining room for all the guests and it was a great chance to get to know our hosts and... More

Unfortunately for us we only got to stay at the wonderful Hanlon House in Stanley for 1 night, Maxine was wonderful and the room and house was amazing. Breakfast was to die for and to see Fairy Penquins just across the road made our day.

This is amongst the best B and Bs Tasmania has to offer. Excellent comfortable accommodation, very friendly and helpful host and a breakfast menu that offers outstanding food. Easy to strongly recommend.

I just returned from 10 day visit to Tasmania, my second, with a 2 night stay at Hanlon House with Maxine and Graham. I emphasise 'with Maxine and Graham' because they made me feel like family. They are an essential part of the warmth that the home offers. Home away from home! I agree with another opinion on trip advisor,... More

Hanlon House is the best kept secret on the west coast of Tasmania. Returning guests are treated like family and it is a testament to Maxine and Graham's excellent hospitality that local Taswegians also stay here for some rest and recreation. Maxine's breakfast is delicious and there is an extensive choice for everyone. We stayed in the Amy Belle suite... More

Excellent location easy walk to the 'nut' and restaurants/shops. Comfortable (even had feather/duck down pillows on request!- not easily available these days) and quiet. Maxine and Graham very welcoming, nothing too much trouble. Food excellent. Views excellent. 5.00pm wine and cheese a nice way to meet the other guests. Fairy penguins an added bonus.

We had a wonderful time in Stanley. We had a family wedding to attend & chose to stay at Hanlon House. Had stayed here many years ago for our honeymoon & didn't hesitate to stay again. Maxine & Graham are such awesome hosts & made us feel very much at home. They are very engaging & make such an effort... More

Thanks Maxine and Graham for making room for us, out the back. We loved this area and could walk out and hey presto there was the beach. The wine and canapes at 5pm is a genius idea, created such a friendly atmosphere and terrific to meet the other guests. "arrive as guests, leave as friends" this motto is absolutely acted... More

Super hosts (Max and Graham), ideal location (the sea, climate, quiet, a few minutes walk from Stanley’s excellent restaurants and small-town shops), fantastic cooking, class-act rooms, penguins in the back yard, and a fun 5 p.m. social. Mary Ellen is the best room for the middle aged on up (I'm 73). For you young lovers, go for The Bungalow. What... More

So so perfect. We LOVED not only hanlon house, but the hosts Maxine and graham were incredible. Maxine's motto is "arrive as guests, leave as friends" and that really is true. The other guests we met were also wonderful and it was such a great atmosphere. So much nicer than staying in a hotel. Maxine and graham are truly wonderful... More
