We had a wonderful stay at this house. It is rich in history and charm. Our room was great and our hosts were beautiful. It had a great view and was close to everything. I highly recommend this to anyone wishing to stay in Strahan.

We arrived late one evening for a two night stay in this beautiful federation mansion on the shores of Macquarie Harbour in Strahan. It was dark when we arrived and without driveway light found it hard to find our way around. Our hosts showed us to our room and invited us for introductory drinks at the bar - a lovely...

I will start with saying the new onsite managers Jeanette and Peter seem like nice people and have a hard work ethic. Unfortunately we arrived during mothers day afternoon high tea, so we arrived to chaos. Our room which was Amelia, is tired, bath needs work, as does the tiles in the bathroom, and wall paper is coming away from...

The nicest thing about our stay here were the hosts Jeanette and Peter. They greeted us warmly and ensured that our stay was as pleasant as it could be. The place is looking a bit tired but the owners would have to pay enormous amounts to restore it. We loved the feel of the place and both the meet and...

A once-magnificent 1899 Victorian mansion with sprawling gardens and nice drive-by appeal. This is a living local history lesson with interesting and expansive common areas. However, the guest accommodations are below expectations and the breakfast is closer to boarding house than B&B. There is more museum than comfort here and it does not answer to the tariff. The good: the...

Very quiet and comfortable - and peaceful. Lovely if you like period accommodation. Excellent service and the rate includes beautiful continental breakfast in the spacious dining room. Parking on site and a short walk into town - along a seaside walking path.

We had the Mary Alice room, which was lovely. bathroom large & had a bath. nice & clean & bed comfy. the only negative was there was nowhere to sit with a table. (I changed the chairs in the room to be either side of the tea making table!) & put the jug etc on the unused dressing table. A...

A beautiful Victorian home once owned by the wealthiest family in Strahan. Each room has the name of the family member who slept in it. Very friendly, charming, and helpful host who will book you a reservation in a delightful restaurant. Breakfast was simple, without the usual B&B’s eggs. Each room had beautiful antiques in it and you could picture...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ormiston House is a beautiful federation mansion built in 1899 and fully restored to its former glory. Set amongst landscaped gardens on the shore of Macquarie Harbour at Strahan the house is resplendent with 5 en-suited guest rooms, bar and lounge, breakfast room and history room. The tower and widows walk provide views across the harbour and the perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine or sit back with a good book. This house is renown for its friendliness, hospitality and welcoming hosts. We feel that Ormiston House is a "must do" experience when you visit Strahan on your Tasmanian holiday. ... more   less
