Well, what can we say? We had a wonderful stay. Jenifa and Graham were wonderful hosts, helpful and easygoing. The dinners and breakfasts were just lovely - the steak and kidney pies and cheesecake were up there with the best we ate in Tasmania. Accommodation was cosy, warm and full of character and we had a great walk around the... More

We enjoyed our stay at Hamlet Downs because our host was attentive, helpful and friendly. A beautiful location very near Mt Field National Park, a not well known gem! Fantastic walks and much to see nearby. Highly recommended.

My husband and I recently spent 2 nights at this wonderful place. Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer. Jenifa and Graham are very welcoming and helpful. We stayed in the king suite which was great. It had a big bedroom plus ensuite with a king size bed, kitchen stocked with everything, including glad wrap and al foil,... More

We felt like family due to Jennifer's warm hospitality. The characterful old house was comfortable and warm. Jennifer's home cooking, if you book the evening meals, is excellent and rated among the best food on our holiday and her sourdough wholemeal bread at breakfast time was to die for. The garden is amazing and the location of the property, close... More

Immaculately clean and well presented property in the middle of nowhere and that's where we ran into trouble. We had driven up to the Gordon Dam from Hobart and arrived at the accommodation at 7pm on a Saturday night.

Jen is a gem and a talented host and cook making good use of her produce. Hospitality, Service, and friendliness 5 stars. Came here to photograph the fabulous waterfalls and Moss forest 15 minutes drive into Mt. Field NP. Lots to explore nearby and if you are lucky you might see a platypus in her pond.

Lovely little place. Reasonable price. Ample cooking facilities and heating. A little tight with an extra person in a small room but we made do. Absolutely wonderful owner Jennifa. So helpful. Stunning surroundings. So close to Mt Field. Wifi very limited but hey we are traveling!

Thank you for your review and comments. Yes with a teenage daughter the Hamlet suite would have been roomier for your family. But I think it was booked out the night you stayed. Lovely to meet you. More
