This place is amazing. The hosts are extremely accommodating and friendly. The house is clean, the decor is fantastic and the facilities are superb. The provided breakfast is the best I have ever come across in accommodation of this type. From cereals and sour dough to smokey bacon and eggs. Herbs and veges are available from the gardens as well....

This is an extraordinary home, Mrs. Philpotts. Everything was top notch. The breakfast was the very best, the baths and beds very comfortable, we could have stayed longer. It was perfect for the four of us and our hosts were very helpful with suggestions and directions. I would highly recommend staying here.

We (two couples) stayed in Mrs Philpotts for one night. I wish we had stayed longer. The home was lovely and close to everything we wanted to see. The owners were very nice, friendly and extremely helpful. Beds were comfortable. Breakfast was excellent. I would recommend this place to anyone visiting Burnie.

I used to travel a lot to Burnie for work and had reason to come back in a new job. I booked in to the Duck House and was happy to find nothing had changed. The Duck House is actually 3 cottages on the same block - Duck House, Mrs Phillpotts and Amelia's. This time I stayed in Amelia's for...

I stayed in Amelia's Cottage with a friend for four nights between 13/10/16 & 17/10/16. The cottage is self contained and boasts every comfort and amenity and is excellent value for money. It is located within easy walking distance to the shopping centre, cafes and restaurants and Burnie is a great base from which to explore the north west coast...

This is THE most delightful accommodation imaginable. Picture a lovingly and beautifully restored and maintained older cottage (complete with mod cons such as climate control throughout), antique beds with loads of cushions, claw-foot bath tub, fully equipped kitchen, all the supplies for a big bacon and free range egg breakfast (and you can pick some herbs from the garden for...

We found 2 Princes Street a warm and hospitable experience with firm bed and generous breakfast provisions. The house is lovingly restored and decorated and we loved the space and warmth of our stay. We sat in every room to sink in the beauty and light at the front of the house and wished we could have stayed longer to...

Motor biking around Tasmania we stayed in some ordinary places, however, The Duck House was recommended by the ladies in the Devonport Tourist Information Centre, so we thought "Why Not?". From our first meeting with "Titch", everything was amazing from the building, the facilities, the food which Titch supplied for our 4 night stay and the freedom of the gardens....

Had a wonderful nights stay in Mrs Philpott's house. Beautiful breakfast supplied. Superb bacon and fresh free ranged eggs. Apart from our intruder during the night resulting in the loss of an iPad, the stay was relaxing and we couldn't have asked for more time
