Fabulous - definetly book the Provence suite for a bit more reclusiveness. Allan and Anne the 2 hosts there are fabulous...make you feel welcome and assist you in every manner possible. Our trip was almost made perfect because of these 2 wonderful hosts. Breakfast was devine with home made toast and home made jams......

5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2009

Recently I was on business in TAS overnight from Victoria. I wanted to stay somewhere near Devonport airport but an easy drive to Launceston.

I found Tranquilles on the internet.

Tranquilles is at Port Sorell, a small seaside fishing town on the inlet of the Rubicon River. Drive is about 10 mins from Devonport airport.
It is quiet and relaxed. Neighbouring town Shearwater has some bakeries, cafes and supermarket. Just 5 mins from Tranquilles which is handy.

Tranquilles is managed by an effervescent character AIan Mcleod. Alan warmly welcomed me and made me feel right at home. The building is spacious but cosy with several different rooms on offer. I chose the Shearwater room where Alan had champagne and chocolates waiting.

The breakfast was magic - home baked bread, museli with King Island yoghurt (yumm!!), local juices and preserves.

I drove from Port Sorrell to Launceston via the West Tamar Hwy for work.

I just wish all of my work travel could be as pleasant as this trip.

I'm looking forward to heading back there with my husband.

Thanks Alan for a lovely stay.

My fiance' and I stayed at Tranquilles B&B on Thursday 5th October 2006 and were both extremely impressed with the accommodation and the service and respect given by John and his wife.

We paid a little bit extra to stay in the 'Provence Suite' as well as opting for a cooked breakfast, to which both were outstanding.

John makes you feel at home but is also respectful of your privacy.

The Provence Suite is what you would expect of a Honey Moon Suite, a large King Size bed with gold trimmings as far as the eye can see, along with an LCD television and DVD player with Digital TV Box. There is a hallway off to the right winding around to your luxury corner spa with plush robes to put on when your ready to get out, as well as a wall heater right next to the spa.

Everything in the Provence Suite is of high standard, and i personally think the gold trimmings really set this room apart from many others we've stayed in. Your girl will feel like a princess!

Although close to a main road, the entire complex is quiet enough to hear a pin drop, possibly due to sound proofing as the Provence Suite is the closest to the main road and we didnt hear one single car or thing throughout our stay.

The morning cooked breakfast is HIGHLY recommended and is a credit to both John and his wife. Freshly squeezed juices and premium rashes of bacon & eggs with a basket of toast, jams, cereals, everything! We were VERY impressed.

I could not recommend anywhere more relaxing and comfortable than Tranquilles B&B. Definately worth the 10 minute drive out of Devonport CBD to experience real service and quality accommodation.

Thanks John, we will DEFINATELY be seeing you both again someday.
