We stayed only one night with our puppy Snuggles. We could not have felt more comfortable if we had been at home. Serena and Kim made us (and Snuggles of course) feel very welcome. The accommodation was spotless and breakfast was superb. We will definitely be back to stay. Jenny and Ron

Tantarra, Owner at Tantarra Bed & Breakfast, responded to this review

We are a very small business who chooses to be pet friendly. As a result we open ourselves to both criticism and praise and all is accepted when the truth is given. Unfortunately from time to time [thankfully rarely] - we come across a guest who embellishes that truth and unfortunately on sites like this can cause a great deal...

I have never been anywhere that Raj, my dog, was made to feel so welcome. I was blown away at how kind and friendly Serena & Kim were to both Raj & I. Breakfast was delicious and Raj was included with biscuits for him. Travelling with your dog can be very stressful, Tantarra totally changed that. Serena went to a...

We stopped here on our drive from Melbourne to Brisbane around Christmas time. Serena was very friendly and helpful, and the rooms were spotless and the bed extremely comfortable.
