On long term contract in Tasmania and required accomodation, we were put up in the renovated stables. Amazingly drafty and the porch is warmer than the room with heater running full throttle. Sheets and towels changed once fortnightly. When cheaper accommodation with better facilities were acquired, our host Pam went mental and abused my employer and accused myself and work colleagues of being of inadequate integrity. Never have I paid for a service to be provided where the service provider sees it fit to abuse me over a change in circumstance. I would strongly recommend avoiding this establishment unless abuse is your preferred method of social interaction.

From the moment we arrived our host Pam made us feel as if we were Family, showed us around and made us feel at home, the rooms are comfortable and welcoming, all 4 on the ground floor have ensuites and the showers are great. The beds were comfortable and although it is close to the road you would have trouble hearing any traffic. It was warm enough outside when we arrived so we had our coffee in the very expansive garden. We had booked to eat in the restaurant, but we started in the beautiful Olde English bar with wood fire, the meal was excellent and we returned the next night and once again we were not dissapointed. Breakfast was included in the room rate and was more than i could eat. Thank you Pam for making us welcome.

Room Tip: If you want your own bathroom stay in one of the downstairs units.

We stopped at the Fitzpatrick Inn for dinner on the return of a business trip to Devonport from Hobart. Lucky for us we had made a telephone reservation on the way up as we by-passed the sleepy village of Westbury as most tables were full, They seated us on a table for two by the panoramic windows overviewing the massive old english gardens as twilight fell. We very much enjoyed the experience and wish that we had had the opportunity to explore these gardens which reminded us so much of Leura in the Blue Mountains.

The meals was good. Hot rolls with mascarpone to whet the taste buds Entree for both of us were marinated quail on a bed of salad at $16 each which we found to be great value These entrees were expansive. The salad was generous and tasty and a whole quail each was more than expected. A touch too much rosemary in the marinade perhaps, but that is a matter of personal taste. Cheryl had the Atlantic Salmon (perfectly cooked) and I had the duck breast with parsnip puree and madeira jus. The Lubiana pinot was a good food match and did not break the bank.

Had a nice personal chat with the owner/cook Pam after dinner and found her honest and personally engaging.

Open for lunch and dinner Wednesday to Sunday. Well worth the detour off the highway and we will definately stop there again. Maybe even stay overnight at this colonial treasure.

Our stay at the inn was just wonderful. Pam Swain is a very accomodating host and a great chef also. Our meal in the restaurant was very enjoyable, loved the sloe gin. Pam brings to life the fascinating history of the inn and especially the three sisters who owned it for many years. I can't wait to visit again.

Room Tip: Rooms out the back have ensuites

Fitzpatricks Inn is like stepping back into an Agatha Christie novel, with lovely attention to keeping the period charm of the Inn, and lots of touches honouring the sisters that originally ran it. Pam and Roger Swain are perfect attentive hosts and bring contemporary care and hospitality amongst the high ceilings and crackling fires. The big surprise of the inn is the food, a great restaurant open from Wed - Sun with modern Tasmanian fare and lots of local wines. For those who want to prop up the bar there is a well priced tasty bar menu and there is no better place for a natter with the locals. When at the Inn you must try the Sloe gin, made from an original recipe of one of the sisters. It is divine and also sold by the bottle. Given the very reasonable prices of the rooms, you can afford to take one home. The rooms are traditional, i.e. they have double beds and are furnished in the style of an inn. Perfectly comfortable and in tradition, but to be aware of if you are expecting modernity and wall sized plasma televisions. Fitzpatricks has an expansive garden, lovely for taking in the morning sun, and is very central to the many charms of Westbury. Perfect also for a jaunt from town and a little high tea of a Sunday afternoon, don't forget your hat and gloves!

Room Tip: The rooms along from the house are lovely and have ensuites.
