We stayed here for a couple of nights, having been recommended to stay here by our travel agent. The location in Strahan is gorgeous and it is easy to see why the house was built here originally. Mike and Carolyn work very hard to make their guests welcome and they provide lots of nice little touches. However the core of... More

It was nice being able to sit in the bar lounge and have a drink. Both Mike and Carolyn were helpful with places to go and visit. The muffins... More

The house has been beautifully restored and Carolyn made us feel very much at home. We had the room with the four poster bed and it was beautiful, lost of room for our stuff. Lots of things to do in and around Strahan and we really enjoyed our stay.

We have stayed in many boutique hotels & B & B''s throughout Tasmania, and I can honestly say that this is one of the best. The house is beautifully restored - an easy walk into the town centre. Carolyn is the perfect hostess - nothing is too much trouble. Thank you for a wonderful stay. Wendy & Terry

We had gone to Strahan for our honeymoon 32 years ago. We had been back when our children were small. This time we decided to treat our selves. We have stayed in a few B&B's over the years both in Australia and in the UK and Europe. This rates as one of the best. We had the beautiful room with... More

Fantastic experience, like stepping back in time to be the Strahan Harbour Master. Authentically preserved, comfortable and well appointed rooms. Yummy continental breakfast served in the beautifully restored dining room. Mike, the owner/operator was super friendly and very knowledgeable about the region, happy to provide tourist tips but also respectful of visitors' privacy. Nicely presented house history in loft.
