This was a great way to spend 2 nights in the Huon. Don and Leanne make you feel at home and the view of the river is fantastic at any time of the day. The location is pretty central to all things Huon. Great location and place to stay

This was a great way to spend our first night in Tasmania. The location, over looking the Huon river, the beautiful gardens and the well renovated heritage house gave us a perfect first impression of Tasmania. Don and Leanne were warm and helpful hosts. We would have liked to stay longer than the one night, but we had only 3... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Donalea and the hospitality of hosts Don and Leanne. The rooms (we stayed in 2 different rooms) and bathrooms were spacious if not grand, and breakfast plentiful in the beautiful dining room. Wi-fi and tv in the room was also a nice feature.

I stayed here with my friend and her two daughters recently. The location was absolutely stunning looking over the Houn valley. The B&B is a beautiful brick home and is situated in a quiet location. The two rooms in the B&B are absolutely beautiful. Both rooms were extremely cleaned and the bathrooms were huge. I've never seen bathrooms so big.... More
