Mike and Carolyn couldn't do enough for us, with advice about what to do on the drives to and from Strahan before we set out, and advising us on local attractions and restaurants, all which helped us get the most out of the area. The property itself is a fascinating relic of days gone by, beautifully maintained and presented.

Mike is a wonderful host very friendly and welcoming. His local knowledge is excellent. If you like quaint and something a bit different this is a lovely place to stay. Can't recommend it highly enough

Ormiston House is beautiful and really lived up to the Tripadvisor hype. Carolyn is an expert host, probably the best I've encountered. We are a family of four and were able to occupy a two bedroom room. Ormiston House is decorated beautifully and has the feeling of a grand house that has been lovingly cared for. Carolyn makes great suggestions... More

We stayed for two nights and had a wonderful time. Carolyn is a fantastic host; extremely friendly and helpful without being intrusive. Fresh muffins and a cup of tea were very welcome after quite a long drive and walk in Cradle Mountain. The home is a very significant part of Strahan's history and we really liked that it had been...

Ormiston House is an historic house located right in town overlooking the water. The house is beautifully decorated in line with an historic Georgian manor house with beautiful antique furniture and our room even had a claw foot bath. Our room, in line with the house, was also beautifully decorated with a canopy bed and was very clean. The gardens... More

We were warmly greeted by Carolyn (the proprietor) who gave us the interesting history of the town and the Ormiston House. We walked along the water a short distance to town and enjoyed dinner at the Queenscliff Inn. Our breakfast was included with our room and it was simple, but delicious. We stayed one night in the F.O. Henry Queen... More
