We stayed here for 2 nights. Karen and Glen were very welcoming. The room was comfortable and clean and supplied everything we needed. The breakfasts were delicious using local fruit and berries. A great and very convenient place to stay in order to explore the area.

Thanks so much Keith for our lovely review, and for taking the time to do as you must have only just got home. We're happy we could set you up for the day with our breakfasts & yes, we are quite central for exploring the Huon Valley. Cheers to Carol too, best wishes, Karen.

When we found out it was over an hour from the Hobart airport, we were a bit concerned, but the wonderful spot and great hosts made it worthwhile. Stayed four nights, and feasted on Glen's amazing full breakfast and Karen's preserves in their dining area full of antique dishes. We were both fortunate enough to see a platypus in the...

Cambridge House B&B sets the standard; a delightful, historic building sympathetically and tastefully decorated but with all the necessary modern comforts and conveniences that travellers seek (in-room fridge, stylish modern en suites, etc). Best of all, hosts Karen and Glen; they are model B&B hosts. Great people, friendly with excellent advice about touring the local area, which is well worth...

From the warm welcome we received on arrival to the very generous and superbly prepared breakfast we enjoyed before our departure the next morning, Karen and Glenn provided a great place to stay and first class hospitality.

This is one of the nicest B&B we have experienced. A beautiful old home, carefully updated in keeping with its heritage. We had one of the ground floor rooms, with a good sized ensuite. The bed was comfortable, heating worked, plenty of room. We stayed two nights - the breakfast, cooked to order each morning and accompanied by fruit harvested...

We spent two nights at this lovely B&B and could have spent longer. The welcome from Glen was friendly, the breakfast plentiful and delivered with a chat, despite him being on his own.
