In all honesty words fail me when it comes to writing this review as one capturing both the truth and the simply brilliant time I have had on multiple occasions at Ormiston House. Perhaps the simplest way is to recall the events of our visit. One is first struck with the sheer beauty and grandeur of Ormiston House after rounding... More

Orminston House is incredible. It is so beautiful and old that I'd have happily paid to do a tour, instead we got to stay there. Carolyn and Mike were the perfect hosts (don't miss out on an evening drink in the bar - it was one of the highlights of our trip), the bed was super comfy and warm and... More

Carolyn & Mike were the consumate hosts. Every little detail was charmingly taken care of. If you're a fan of freshly plunged coffee or boutique tea, accompanied by deliously warm croissants for breakfast, then this gorgeous federation manse is for you.

From arrival to departure, our stay at Ormiston House was outstanding. This beautifully restored old house close to the sea has large comfortable bedrooms with en suites and extensive gardens in a quiet area close to the centre of Strahan village. They offer a good fresh continental breakfast, and there are excellent restaurants near by. From the warm welcome of... More

Awesome antique home, beautiful big bedrooms and charming hosts. Situated in the rugged NW in the roaring forties, Strahan. The World Heritage Tour is a must, I travelled to the Gordon Franklin and saw trees in rainforest that are amazing. Sarah Island on the tour showed what a miserable life early convicts as well as their keepers endured. Well worth... More

Glad you liked our 'little house by the harbour'. A beautiful House and a great history and agree, a cruise on the mighty Gordon River and visit to Sarah Island is a must amongst all those things to do here. Thank you for your kind words and taking the time to write regards Carolyn More

Our hosts at the Ormiston sent us copious information and driving directions prior to our arrival, and their helpfulness continued after arrival. Tips on which tour to take, where to eat, etc were given generously and gratefully received. The house decor and furnishings could fool a visitor into stepping back in time. But modern-day comforts like kettles and TVs are... More

The venue was appealing but extremely overpriced. The bed linen was well worn and the breakfast catered only for heavy sugar consumers. Minimal savoury options, other than regular supermarket bread, were provided. For the price, more should have been offered.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ormiston House is a beautiful federation mansion built in 1899 and fully restored to its former glory. Set amongst landscaped gardens on the shore of Macquarie Harbour at Strahan the house is resplendent with 5 en-suited guest rooms, bar and lounge, breakfast room and history room. The tower and widows walk provide views across the harbour and the perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine or sit back with a good book. This house is renown for its friendliness, hospitality and welcoming hosts. We feel that Ormiston House is a "must do" experience when you visit Strahan on your Tasmanian holiday. ... more   less
