Cute, quaint boutique hotel. Comfortable bed. Advertised as $100 per night for two people on the website including continental breakfast, however is actually $110 for two people without breakfast. Wifi advertised but extremely slow in our room.

Exquisitely fresh, perfectly cooked and beautifully presented by the owner. We had lunch with Reisling in front of the fire. Then we went for our walk up in the Hartz Mountain. Huon Valley is the pick of places in Tasmania.

Thank you for your kind review, we appreciate that you took the time to review us and are very happy to hear you enjoyed your meal. Our salmon comes fresh from Huon aquaculture, just down the road, and has never seen a freezer. We love the Huon Valley, and the Hartz is one of our favourite getaway walks so it... More

Cosy and comfy olde worlde feel. Great idea to have coats for sale in the sitting room as it was so cold. Self serve continental breakfast was great and plentiful. Hostess was helpful and friendly. Room a bit cramped for 3 adults Reasonable price. Great position in the main street.

We arrived in the cold rain and our thoughtful host had preheated our room which was pleasantly decorated. We were provided with a comfortable bed, a bright ensuite and plenty for breakfast. Our host gave us good advice to visit the Hartz Mountains national park and to recommend the sushi restaurant

We enjoyed our stay with our 2 kids. Breakfast was not fancy but filling before heading off to the mountains. Host very nice, friendly and informative. Great with kids too Nd very accommodating. We have not tried too much else in this town but enjoyed staying there. Cider was good with a twist and coffee was excellent!
