We had a lovely stay at Ormiston House having booked 2 rooms (F.O Henry & Jessie) for our party of 5. We were made to feel very welcome by Mike on arrival and really appreciated the little welcoming touches like muffins and the special consideration to my 3 year old son's breakfast arrangements. We loved wandering around the public areas... More

We stayed two nights at Ormiston House with Mike and Carolyn in the lovely Mary Alice room with its claw foot bathtub. It was lovely to visit the history room and enjoy the views from the "Widows or Captains Walk" a unique part of this homes history. We enjoyed the easy access to the town of Strahan and both Mike...

I recently stayed with Mike and Carolyn for two nights with a girlfriend. We were given the "Jesse" room which was perfect - each our own bedroom and a shared bathroom. Mike was the perfect host, friendly and informative, always there when you needed him yet definitely not overbearing. Home was delightfully restored. Rooms neat, tidy and warm and rates... More

Mike provides a warm welcome and muffins on arrival followed by fresh croissants for breakfast and muffins for the journey on departure. Ormiston House has a long history and it has been well restored which warrants support. We would definitely stay again - the bed is comfortable and breakfasts enjoyable, plus Mike has great local knowledge to be mined, what... More

My husband and I had a stay here recently and from the moment we arrived till the moment we left we felt welcome and at home. Carolyn is clearly in her element caring for visitors with lots of lovely little touches to make you feel spoilt. Would definitely stay here again.

A warm welcome from Mike and Carolyn. Beautifully and accurately restored with attention to detail and very comfortable. Loved the music choice and Carolyn's muffins are delicious. We will definitely be back & only wish we could of stayed longer.

From the moment of arrival to our departure our hosts Mike & Carolyn showed welcome attention to all details of our stay. Memorable moments were the drinks in the cosy lounge in the evening, the delicious breakfasts and welcoming and departing muffins, and our sweet room "Amelia" with its comfortable bed and electric blanket. The bathroom was huge but rather... More

We stayed here our last night of our drive around Tasmania. Prior to our arrival, Carolyn provided meticulous directions and recommendations for places to stop, eat, and sight-seeing during our drive. Once we arrived, we were greeted with fresh cake and tea. The room was lovely, spacious and decorated in the period style (gorgeous fireplace!); we were very comfortable. Again,... More

Arrived & welcomed with door held open till last person & bag was inside. Tour & welcome in after-then sign in & shown rooms, then of course offered fresh baked goods and hot beverages. Ohh and check out upstairs. Charm, hospitality and welcoming warm feel here-of course the historic building & lovely rooms.. suggested to all.
