Loved our stay in the Waratah cottage. It is so cosy and there is everything you need supplied. It is so well situated you can walk to wherever in town you want to go. Joy is so friendly and helpful and I couldn't thank her enough for her help in getting my lost wallet back to me before we left...

Our room "Sassafras" was not quite finished with minor restoration touches still to be completed and a little over furnished (would rate 8/10) but still very satisfactory. The overall property was beautifully restored. Location of the property was excellent, very close to the centre of town. Parking was good either on the property out he back or on the street...

This accom has heaps of charm and was just what we were hoping for. Host was friendly and helpful in every way. Position is central in town, and to the places to visit. Queens town has a fascinating and colourful history and is worth exploring. Our host and partner run local tours and are a mine of information. TB

This is a beautifully restored heritage cottage. The rooms are very cozy with extremely comfortable beds and beautifully appointed modern ensuite bathrooms. We were a group of four and, as luck would have it, we had the main house to ourselves during our two day mid-week stay! We enjoyed the cozy lounge, but it was warm so we didn't need...

We have just travelled around Tasmania and this was the best accommodation of the whole trip. We stayed in 'Snowberry Bungalow', which was a spacious 2 bedroom cottage. It was very quiet and the decor was delightful. Joy, the owner, had thought of everything - even down to the heated towel rack and an abundance of plush towels. Wifi was...

One of the best B&B's I have visited. The Accommodation was first class, an older house that has been restored to first class condition. Great bedroom, great ensuite and a very well set out kitchen with all the necessities. Great heating throughout the house, as this was required with a snap cold front on our stay. Within walking distance to...

Four of us stayed at Mt Lyell Anchorage in a two bedroom cottage. Having driven through Queenstown we were not confident that the accomodation would be up to much, but we were wrong. Mt Lyell Anchorage is a hidden gem. The cottage was well appointed and the beds were extremely comfortable. The provisions in the kitchen are 'above and beyond'...

Fabulous with food provisions, roomy cottages tho no wifi range from reception and no cooking hotplates. Stayed there to explore and loved the spot and host, would recommend tho likely stay in Strahan definitely if we explore again.

We had booked the self-contained cottage but the wifi was non-existent so we downgraded to the main house to get wifi, but it was also unsuccessful (nearly 10 minutes to get the home page of the BBC website). The owner offered many excuses as to why the internet was poor but we went to a local motel to get wifi...

I am glad that you enjoyed your stay at my property and am sorry that the wifi did not work very well on your devices. When you advised me that the only reason you booked my cottage was for the free wifi I immediately moved you to a better room closer to the wifi. I remember standing in the room...
