My husband and myself stayed at Donalea Bed & Breakfast in April 2015 for 2 nights. We absolutely loved our short stay, we made ourselves at home here. The room was just beautiful, comfy, cosy and warm, complete with an ensuite which was huge. Don & Leanne were wonderful hosts, nothing was too much trouble. Leanne made muffins for us... More

Stayed here for 1 night whilst taking a friend to see some of the magnificent scenery south of Hobart. We reserved the 2 bedroom apartment, as the guest rooms were fully booked. The apartment is in a converted apple store adjacent to the main house and is delightful, with a comfortable living room, generous sized bathroom, two bedrooms, and a... More

We travelled with friends and stayed at Donalea for 4 nights. Home away from home. The rooms were very comfortable, very clean and the ensuite very roomy. Our hosts, Don and Leanne were exceptional and very accommodating. Best continental breakfast we have experienced. Beautiful views of the Huon River from the Guest Loungeroom and Waterview Suite. We experienced some very... More

The Riverside Apartment is a delightful self contained suite. Particularly nice is the separation of bedrooms and living areas, almost a home in itself. Arrangements were easily settled and the owners were kind enough to ensure heating was on when we returned at night. We understand the kitchen will be upgraded but honestly it was quite adequate for our holiday... More

We found Donalea on the banks of the Franklin River to be a wonderful gem of a retreat. The location is set in a quiet rural setting. The apartment was warm and welcoming both in décor and comfort. All conveniences were available and catered to our needs. The best was having breakfast on the deck looking through the beautiful private... More

On arrival we were provided with afternoon tea (banana bread) which was just what we needed. The bedroom was spacious and had everything you could need. What we both throught was excellent was the size of the bathroom, not only did it have a spa bath and shower, but it was the size of a small house itself. The gardens... More
