What a step back in time! Beautiful original furniture from the mid 1800s. Very comfortable and the breakfast included was a hot and cold buffet. Definitely value for money and one for the history buffs.

During our road trip in Australia we were lucky we could stay one night in this beautiful heritage house. It's one of the oldest houses built during the colonial period. Because of its solid structure and the strong foundation it was used as area HQ by the army during WW 2. There is an interesting history and you can learn...

We stayed at Stannum House for three days late last year. It was like being transported back in time to the Victorian era. Loved the antiques with their special stories and the calmness of the town. Tge staff were very friendly and welcoming. Would highly recommend Stannum House to all lovers of history and nature.

My wife was told about Stannum House by a collegue who suggested, if we wanted an excellent place to stay for a few nights, this was the place. How right she was!!!!

Stopped here even though I was only two hours short of being home because I love staying in houses with character. And Stannum House has character in spades. Built on a grand scale circa 1880 on the strength of a tin mining fortune, it was originally envisaged as a potential Government House if Tenterfield had been chosen as the nation's...
