Like some other reviewers we also stayed in the Amelia Room. Contrary to other reviews we found this room poor. The bed was extremely uncomfortable to the point we felt we might fall out. The mattress needs desperate replacement. There was nowhere to sit in the room as the bed tales up almost all the space. The bathroom is very large but impractical. The shower over the bath is probably the most unsafe facility we have ever experienced. While we appreciated the grandeur of an old bath with four feet the days of climbing into these with no handrails and plastic curtains are well and truly gone. Plenty of room for a practical shower facility. The hosts Mike and Carolyn are very hospitable but need to reconsider the continental breakfast. One normally expects a cooked breakfast at a decent B & B & Ormiston is not cheap. One small croissant plus a choice of 3 cereals and some toast was a very poor offering. This is a grand house with some great people running it but it needs some significant upgrades. Would not recommend.
- 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
