What a gem of a property. Our two bedroomed self contained unit was spacious and beautifully decorated and the grounds were amazing, All the complimentary extra's - port and fudge, cd's, dvd's and games made our stay not only a pleasurable experience but a memorable one. Location was great, very close to Mount Field NP and only 30 minutes from... More

Jenifa, our wonderful hostess greeted us warmly when we arrived late from the airport and driving. We had a very roomy area with heaps of space so comfy and serene. It was delightfully furnished and the little extras were a treat. We had a 'gourmet' dinner, in, at a very reasonable price and great quality with presentation and delivery giving... More

We felt like family due to Jennifer's warm hospitality. The characterful old house was comfortable and warm. Jennifer's home cooking, if you book the evening meals, is excellent and rated among the best food on our holiday and her sourdough wholemeal bread at breakfast time was to die for. The garden is amazing and the location of the property, close... More

Immaculately clean and well presented property in the middle of nowhere and that's where we ran into trouble. We had driven up to the Gordon Dam from Hobart and arrived at the accommodation at 7pm on a Saturday night. In our naivety we didn't realise that we would be too late for dinner, we were offered soup but we had... More

Thank you for your review. It is good to get your feed back about the need to communicate early if a meal is needed. It is helpful when we have a full house. I'm so sorry you didn't let us know upon your return from the Pub that no meal was available. We certainly would have organized a meal for... More

The BnB is nestled in a luscious valley surrounded by a bountiful garden with easy access. The host is charming and lovely. Nothing was a problem and she cooked the best omlete that I've ever eaten complete with herbs from her garden and eggs from her chickens. The accommodation was spacious and comfortable. Our room had a separate kitchen and... More

Jen is a gem and a talented host and cook making good use of her produce. Hospitality, Service, and friendliness 5 stars. Came here to photograph the fabulous waterfalls and Moss forest 15 minutes drive into Mt. Field NP. Lots to explore nearby and if you are lucky you might see a platypus in her pond.

Lovely little place. Reasonable price. Ample cooking facilities and heating. A little tight with an extra person in a small room but we made do. Absolutely wonderful owner Jennifa. So helpful. Stunning surroundings. So close to Mt Field. Wifi very limited but hey we are traveling!

Thank you for your review and comments. Yes with a teenage daughter the Hamlet suite would have been roomier for your family. But I think it was booked out the night you stayed. Lovely to meet you. More

This was my first stay at Hamlet Downs and goodness was I impressed. First, I accidentally booked my stay for the 16th of August, when I called on the 10th and letting Jenifa know I was arriving in about 2 hours, she still offered me an incredible room with included freshly made fudge, wine, fresh milk, and was the most...

Our second visit to this location, the previous one being in September 2013, and again this tim around we were not disappointed. The service, the warmth and great hospitality are second to none. Some 5 star hotel chains could well do with sending their senior execs to this establishment to see how its really done and learn a few tips... More

Great property, walk path around the river, platypus under one bridge. The rooms were great, clean & comfortable decorated in period style. Basic cooking facilities supplied, or full cooked dinner offered at extra cost. Jenifa was an excellent, friendly host. l
