Cambridge House Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 2 Geeveston B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 10, 2013

Cambridge House is a delightful, comfortable and beautifully restored home away from home. The bedrooms are lovely - nicely decorated with recognition of the early history of the house, which dates back to 1860. Karen and Glen are excellent hosts and very willing to offer suggestions - I dined at the Kermandie hotel which had a very high quality restaurant, quite a surprise. The breakfast is everything others have described. The stewed fruits are superb. Karen even acted as my emergency back-up were I to fail to return from my walk up Mt Hartz which, by the way, forms part of a glorious national park near Geeveston.

Thank you Karen and Glen :)

Very hospitable hosts, fantastic breakfast and very accommodating of my coeliac husband and 12month old daughter! One of the best B&B's that we had the pleasure of staying in during our recent trip to Tassie.

You & your family were very easy to look after. You let us know in advance about the need for Gluten free so that made it simple. So glad you all had a nice time with us, thank you for the review.

We recently spent a night with Karen and Glen at Cambridge House, while in Geeveston visiting our son. We had a lovely relaxing time in a very comfortable home. Karen and Glen were very hospitable and the breakfast was very enjoyable and a lovely start to the day. We didn't get to see the Platypus but did enjoy the gardens. We would highly recomend it to anyone traveling in that area. We certainly will be staying again when visiting our son next time. Sue & Ross Victoria

Room Tip: We enjoyed an ensuite room, but all rooms are lovely

We'd love to have you back Sue, glad you could make the most of your time here with your son & relax at the same time. Maybe the platypus will come out to play next time! Thanks for taking the time to write us a review.

My husband prefers the anonymity of hotels/motels but as there aren't any in Geeveston he agreed to stay at Cambridge House and the experience has changed his views on B&Bs. Karen & Glen were friendly yet professional, gave us some great tips about touring in the area such as taking the scenic Police Point Road to Dover and getting our Tahune Air Walk tickets in Geeveston so we'd get a map showing points of interest on the road. Our room was large, clean, comfortable and well equipped - we didn't expect a fridge or magazines but appreciated them both. Breakfast was excellent; a great choice of cereals, breads, homemade jams followed by yummy poached eggs, mushrooms and bacon. Would happily stay here again.

If you need a place to get away from the big smoke, look no further than this beautiful B&B. Everything was perfect - setting, heritage house, clean, comfortable, terrific breakfasts & close to so many amazing places. Thanks to great advice from Karen & Glen, we visited - Hartz Mountain, Tahune Airwalk, Cockle Creek, South Cape track, Eggs & Bacon Bay (yes there is such a place) & more - all within 1 hours drive of Cambridge House. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute & can't wait to re-visit. Sue/Brisbane

Cambridge House was one of the highlights of my trip to Tasmania with my daughter. We were warmly welcomed even though we were unexpected (our booking came through a couple of hours after we arrived). The house is charming and our room comfortable and cosy. The country breakfast exceeded expectations and Karen's recommendation for our evening meal suited us perfectly. The local knowledge tips she and Glen gave us for the rest of our trip were most welcome and served to make the rest of our trip enjoyable.
