“DO NOT STAY AT SHEFFIELD B&B, TASMANIA”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

I should have checked Trip Adviser before I booked!!! Fawlty Towers has more stars. The property looks presentable on the internet....but there is only the one photo from across the street. I understand why, now. Probably a beautiful property in the past, now...run down, needs lotsa maintanance to be presentable. Weeds, rotting timbers & flakey paint. The room......, they gave us their best room...double bed, air-con & ancient TV didn't work, nor room light. On arrival "you pay cash?" Shared dirty bathrooms. The dining area, "industrial kitchen" it was called, was a similar separate delapidated building. Inside, everything you touched, utensils, plates, table & chairs, TV & remote, kettle, benches & floor were all grease sticky. Ughhh...had to wash up before we ate. Can't forget the 2 commercial fridges with their frozen food, noisy as ! Needless to say it was an experience. WE WILL NOT BE GOING BACK. If you are looking for somewhere to stay in beautiful Sheffield, unless you like backpacker standard, do not stay here.
ALWAYS CHECK TRIP ADVISER BEFORE YOU BOOK ACCOMMODATION,

Room Tip: Sorry, but the rating system above does not go into Negative numbers, so I must decline rating this...

Well we made our choice to stay at the B&B because of our phone conversation with the owner, she seemed so lovely. .She made it sound so nice we booked there and then. It was 10 am on the day of arrival in Sheffield that morning she had rang us to see if we were still staying that night, never had experienced that before We arrived to find a very run down B&B to our disappointment,the lady welcomed us. The kitchen was unclean and bad odors .The bed room was okay but the bathrooms and toilet was not clean .Breakfast consisted of open used boxes of cereal. Open Vegemite etc. there was no fresh milk. What really took us back is when she asked for cash. After looking around when she had left we did not won't to stay there, only that we had payed we had no choice but to stay the night as it was to late in the night to find other accommodation

We made this booking without looking at any reviews and it was a mistake to stay here. The owner asked for cash as soon as we arrived and seemed reluctant to give us breakfast even though this was a B&B. We think that the family have just sectioned off part of their big house for the B&B. The room itself was ok but the bathroom wasn't clean, the whole place smelt like paint, one of the electrical cords was making clicking noises (we were afraid it would spark) and there was scratching noises in the adjacent room at night (not sure if this was a possum or something else). We couldn't wait to get out of here.. maybe it's not so surprising why the owner asked for cash upfront.. otherwise, we would have just left within the first 5 minutes.
