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

Owner, Carolyn was very warm and welcoming and nothing was a trouble. A beautiful restored house and you feel very welcome. Lots of advice for things to see and do in Strahan and the rest of Tassie. Highly recommend this place, there is just the extra special touches included. Adrian & Christine

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.

A family of 4 stayed in the Jessie room and it was very cosy and comfortable. Carolyn is the perfect B&B host and is so helpful and enthusiastic. Our teenagers were initially a bit freaked out in staying in an 'old house' as they have been spoilt with hotels in the past. However they really enjoyed their stay. The breakfast... More

It was my absolute pleasure and a bit chuffed to hear that the teenagers 'thawed' and enjoyed. I remember your visit and pleased all went well. I love to show off the house and share the story. Maybe this might be the first of more B&B's visited. :) take care and as I type, I realise that Christmas is a... More
