“needs sprucing up”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

really a bit too old in the food offering. Yes, I know it is an historic visit, but, I think it's time to get with todays possibilities in the menu department. Perhaps it isn't in the budget to be able to improve, but, if that's the case then just don't offer the food

“wonderful!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

it is located just outside of town in an industrial area. The grounds are beautifully maintained and the museum collection was extensive and interesting. Point Ellice House is run by volunteers and they are very polite and helpful. The house and tour are interesting. I would highly recommend this tea and museum.

“Historic visit at Ellice House and Garden”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

It is amazing how they kept this house in this great shape and how well the gardens are tended. We spent quite a bit of time listening to the selfguided tour and strolled through the garden thereafter. Well worth the visit. We drove to the Ellice House but one can also get there buy water taxi, right from the inner harbour.

“GOOD FOR GRANDKIDS!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

A lovely experience if your grandkids are interested in history - and if you go of a summer's afternoon, you can have TEA served on the lawn out back. The girls loved it!

“Stepping into the Victorian Age”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

A rich and comprehensive reflection of a Victorian family's life is professionally managed and interpreted. Highly recommended! Stay for tea, perhaps take the little harbour ferry from an interesting ride to/from the Inner Harbour. Loation is surprising, an oasis surrounded by local small industry.
