“Best B&B of our Tassie Trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

Casila House B&B was so far above the other B&B's we stayed at during our Tassie holiday. The 7 years which the owners have spent renovating have really paid off and we would really recommend that you also stay here. The only disappontment was that the places we stayed in after our night here seemed poorly in comparison!

This was the best B&B we experienced in Tasmania. The owners were more than accomodating and allowed us to use their kitchen to prepare dinner. A welcome relief from the not so exciting restaurants in the area. The location is ideal for exploring the Port Arthur area and has a beautiful bayfront location. Hot breakfast too! Character and charm!

This is a long overdue review. We stayed at Casilda House going from Hobart to Port Arthur with the idea of stopping somewhere in the middle which would give us easy access to various sites. What a wonderful find. So close to where Abel Tasman first landed -- a surprise find -- and in a delightful spot. What was awesome, was the friendliness of our hosts and their over-and-above helpfulness with everything. Wish we stayed longer -- and would we go back when in Tasmania-definitely.

Our room was lovely, breakfast superb and the tips and stories so interesting. I hope that this little gem of a B&B in a little gem of a location continues to retain its charm.

This was our first Tassie B&B experience and definitely the best. It's an ideal set-up, with the owners close by, and Casilda House left to the guests. Tony spent two years restoring a condemned building and the result is fantastic. Lots of nice touches like afternoon tea on arrival, a log fire, free port, tasteful decorations and use of bikes and fishing gear etc.

Dunalley doesn't have many eating places, so being able to cook your own dinner at the B&B is a big plus. We stayed two nights, we cooked one and ate out at the local pub (adequate) the other. There's another eating option on Fri and Sat nights, The Dunalley Waterfront Cafe, so you might want to time your visit if you don't want to cook.

There's a delicious cooked breakfast included in the tariff with homemade bread and jams to set you up for the day.

Tony and Kathy know the area well and offered good advice. Port Arthur is about 30mins away but there's plenty of places to explore on the way there and back. (Try the pies from the caravan at the blowhole south of Eaglehawk Neck during the warmer months).

This is a great place to stay - spacious, friendly and homely, all looking out over the water.

Firstly, the restoration that Tony has done on the 1890 cottage is superb & Kathy has furnished & decorated it with sublime tastefulness. Situated right on the lake with views past their house out over the water; it was warm, comfortable, very well appointed & above all, friendly. We would certainly recommend it to our friends.

A great location if you prefer not to stay in cities. Casilda House is a lovely waterfront b&b about 35 minutes from Port Arthur and 50 minutes from Hobart City Centre. It’s also convenient for the airport (about 40 minutes away). We had a very spacious double room with a waterfront view. Kathy and Tony are very hospitable and made our stay very comfortable: from a welcoming cup of tea and cakes to complimentary port, sherry and chocolates around a roaring log fire.

A good breakfast set us up nicely for the day. There’s not a lot of choice for dinner in the area. The one night that we stayed we ate at the hotel – not a good choice! We had a very indifferent meal there and wished we opted for Kathy’s suggestion of getting a takeaway – guests have use of the kitchen in the separate guest accommodation.

We spent a ½ day at the Port Arthur Historical Site – well worth it, could easily have spent a day had we had time. Lots to do in the area: from water activities including sailing, fishing, sea cruises around the islands to general sightseeing.

Casilda House is a very relaxing place to stay which we can highly recommend – one night wasn’t enough!

We booked one night over the internet due to the location and were so pleased that we decided to stay an extra night. We didn't meet Kathy until breakfast, but Tony, her husband is an excellent host and full of really useful information. As the car we had booked proved smaller than we had expected and did not comfortably hold our luggage, they kept our cases for a couple of days, allowing us to take a minimum in travel bags, and tour the island. The rooms are beautiful and spotlessly clean. each one is different. The views of the sunrise and sunset are fabulous as is the breakfast! Their kindness and generosity(home made bread snack to take away on our departure) make this a must to return to.

Room Tip: All rooms beautiful
